Nominations online casino game of the year

Of course, the online casino industry has its own awards that are handed out annually to the best new games that have come on the market. A number of games, developers and operators are nominated for 2016 and at the annual EGR Operator Awards the winners will be announced. Some nominations are not really a surprise, others we had not really expected.

What we can conclude however is that there have been lots of new games on the market in 2016 and that developers continue to push the limits to give players the best possible gaming experience. Among the nominees we find big names such as NetEnt, Microgaming, Playtech, Yggdrasil and Thunderkick. Besides the known parties there are also new developers and operators entering the market and the coming years will undoubtedly provide a few pleasant surprises.

That NetEnt’s Guns ‘n Roses Slot has been nominated is not really a surprise to anybody. It is their most successful branded game in their 20-year history and we are therefore tipping this game as the winner in te category best new slot game. The game is a commercial success and a large number of VIP players has already embraced this game boosting the success for Netent.

Another developer who does well with two nominations is Playtech. Their two new releases, Ace Ventura and Space Invaders, which revived the original 1978 arcade game, have a good chance too on November 28th.
