2015 Global Gaming Awards Winners
Date Added: October 1, 2015
We are pleased to announce that one of our favourite online casino software providers, Microgaming, walked away with no less than two awards from the Global Gaming Awards 2015 ceremony, making them the most successful company of the evening. This event celebrated the best from 12 categories (both land-based & digital industries) and it was presided over by a panel of 50 expert judges from leading industries. The event was also independently adjudicated by KPMG Gibraltar.
Microgaming ended up winning the Digital Gaming Innovation award for its work on Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology and also the Digital Product of the Year award for its Jurassic Park online pokie which first arrived in New Zealand online casinos back in August 2014. Speaking about the win was the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever.
He 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.” We obtained these comments from a recent Microgaming press release. The CEO 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. 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!”
Microgaming’s VR Roulette utilises the Oculus Rift DK 2 headset with Leap Motion 3D Controller. Microgaming received this award for their forward thinking in this particular field. The Runner Up in this category was Campaign Manager, Playtech. In the Digital Gaming Innovation of the Year category, the Runner Up was The Spin Lab, NYX Gaming Group. This is the second year in a row that Microgaming has managed to win the Digital Product of the Year award, twice pipping NetEnt to the post.
Microgaming’s Jurassic Park online pokie can now be found over at any of our featured Microgaming casinos, some of which include Crazy Vegas Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Casino Mate and Royal Vegas Casino. This famous branded pokie has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and it features some amazing 3D rendered graphics. It was the first such product to use Parallax Scrolling effects and it has some exciting special features and immersive bonus rounds for players to enjoy.
