The EGR Awards marks yet another successful year in the industry

The annual EGR B2B Awards were held in London just a few days ago which recognises the work carried out by the gaming providers we know and love at our favourite online casinos. The night was celebrated across the industry, let’s have a look at where some of the well-deserved awards were handed out.

Another successful year all round

NetEnt does it again, taking home three prizes and confirming its place at the cutting edge of slot development. The company that just keeps going from strength to strength and were nominated in an incredible nine different categories proving that hard work really does pay off.

The night went off with a bang and NetEnt once again walked away victorious

The digital gaming company ended the night on a high winning ‘Innovation in slot provision’, ‘RNG Casino Supplier’ and the ‘Innovation in Mobile’ award. Per Eriksson who is the CEO at NetEnt commented “Every year NetEnt aims to go even better than the last, designing better games with even more innovative features, and ensuring we stay at the leading edge of the industry. It’s fantastic to receive outside recognition that all our hard work is paying off.”

And the other awards go to…

Matt Davey, the CEO of the NYX Gaming Group commented “We are delighted to have been awarded multiple prestigious titles at this year’s EGR B2B Awards.”

The competitive category

In what was a very competitive category, the Slot Provider of the Year, Yggdrasil triumphed over nine other nominees taking home the highly regarded award. The award acknowledges the firms market-leading portfolio of video slots.
