February 16, 2016
Two of our favourite online casino software providers, NetEnt and Microgaming, both managed to pick up awards at the prestigious International Gaming Awards 2016. This year’s event took place at the Savoy Hotel London on Monday 1st February, just one day before ICE Totally Gaming started at London’s ExCel exhibition centre.
The International Gaming Awards (IGA) is now in its ninth year and it was Microgaming that received the ‘Innovator of the Year’ award. NetEnt walked away with the ‘Slot Provider/Supplier Product of the Year’ award. “It’s a pleasure to see that the industry recognises the incredible effort and skill that goes into delivering NetEnt’s products and innovations,” said the NetEnt CEO, Per Eriksson.
He then went on to say, “Receiving a clutch of top-class awards in such a short space of time shows that we’re definitely doing something right – and we’ll continue to adapt and improve to ensure NetEnt continues to stay at the forefront of the market.” He was also talking about the ‘Casino Content Provider of the Year’ award that they picked up at the eGR Nordic Awards and the ‘Best Software Experience’ award that they won at the Casinomeister Awards.
Also speaking about their latest win was the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever. He said, “What a fantastic start to ICE! And what a tremendous accolade for our Research and Development team. They are constantly thinking ahead and pushing the boundaries, and deserve praise for consistently producing pioneering solutions that are effectively shaping the future of online gaming.”
The then finished by saying, “This award, the second of its kind in recent months, further cements our status as the creative force in our industry. It really is a fantastic achievement – well done to all involved!” Microgaming won a similar award for VR Roulette and its forward thinking work in Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology back in September 2015 at the Global Gaming Awards.
