Added: October 5, 2015

The Global Gaming Awards is an awards ceremony which celebrates some of the triumphs from both online and offline gaming industries and it is now in its second year. A panel of 50 expert judges decided the fate of approximately 10 to 12 contenders from each of the 12 categories and KPMG Gibraltar officiated to maintain complete transparency in the voting process. The 2015 Global Gaming Awards took place on Monday 28th September at the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center in Las Vegas.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the winners from this years’ event. Ricardo Regner from Scientific Games won the Latin America Executive of the Year award. S3000, IGT won the Casino Product of the Year award. MGM Resorts International won the Land Based Operator of the Year award. Powerbucks, IGT won the Land-Based Gaming Innovation of the Year award and Income Access won the Digital Acquisition Program of the Year award.

Bet365 won the Digital Operator of the Year award. MGM Resorts International (MLife) won the Customer Loyalty Program of the Year award. Scientific Games won the Land-Based Industry Supplier of the Year award. Microgaming won the Digital Gaming Innovation award and for a second year running Microgaming also won the Digital Product of the Year award.

The Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever, said, “We are so proud to win not one but two awards at this highly prestigious and credible award ceremony! Jurassic Park™ is an incredible game and the fact that the experience is just as impressive on mobile as it is online really does blow people away.” He then went on to say, “But to win an award for innovation is particularly close to my heart as we have always worked so hard to stay several steps ahead of the industry, predicting trends and ensuring that our content works on emerging technology.”

He then finished by saying, “For those that have seen our slots work on smart watches and experienced our VR Roulette product, it is an incredible insight into the future of online gaming. A big thanks and well done to my team for this huge achievement!” All of these comments came from a recent Microgaming press release.

Microgaming was recognised for its forward thinking in work in Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology, in particular for a game called VR Roulette. Microgaming was also recognised for a branded online slot machine called Jurassic Park which first appeared online in August 2014. The other leading online casino software provider to walk away with an award was NetEnt. This company won the Digital Industry Supplier of the Year and the runner up in this category was Playtech.
