Another month has been and gone but now it’s time to revisit July and check out the biggest headlines, in case you missed anything.
News From This Month
We Published Our Survey Results
In April, you may have seen our Player Preference Survey which we dedicated to online slots and the turnout was pretty amazing so earlier this month we shared the results. We had over 4,500 responses which saw some rather impressive results. For starters, more than half of respondents said they consider themselves to be mid rollers whilst high rollers took up 15.6% of the votes. You can check out more results using the link above.

This Month's Big Wins
Big wins are never far away as King Billy Casino dished out €313.542 to a skilled punter playing Evolution's titles! A player from Denmark held a VIP status at the casino and over the course of 20 days managed to take home over a quarter of a million euros thanks to their favourite games from Evolution Gaming. The player said the big win “didn’t happen by accident” and described their games as “very safe”.
Then we saw Relax Gaming‘s Top Dawg$ dazzle with €500,000 win. The lucky player bounced their way to the games 25,000x max win cap on the day it was released at Platincasino. The lucky player bought into the feature and even though the game had been playing well it was a complete surprise when the big win rolled in.
And, as if by magic, Relax Gaming’s Chip Spin dropped a 23,050x multiplier the day it was released. Another unique game from the provider paid out big on its first day of launch landing the player over €18,000 in winnings. This leaves Relax Gaming retaining their title as Hold & Win masters.
The Hottest Industry News
BGaming Share Gaming Trends
This month Bgaming shared the latest trends in graphics and design of online casino games and said that VR can be a breath of fresh air in the iGaming industry. BGaming noted that excellent graphics is key for any online slot as is a generous RTP and sophisticated features. They released other top trends which included mobile gaming, and the impact of traditional fruit games.
iGB Celebrate Influential Women
In an industry that was male-dominated for so long, iGB again shined a spotlight on women as they look for the most influential women in iGaming. iGB launched their fourth survey and have started to gather votes on working women, especially those in senior positions. Nominations can be done through the iGB website in a bid to redress the gender imbalance.
UKGC to Address Complaints
It’s been talked about many times before but now the Betting and Gaming Council called on the UK Government to set up a gambling ombudsman. If this was approved the primary responsibility of this ombudsman would be to deal with customer complaints. Ministers continue to review the UK Government’s Gambling Act and establishing a gambling ombudsman would be the next natural move.
It’s been a busy month for the AskGamblers complaint team who have recovered $208949 in confiscated funds during July. They had received 792 complaints which affected 319 casinos and 673 users. Out of these 95 have been resolved in the players favour with 61 still ongoing. Just remember, if you need us you know where we are.
