La crème de la crème

As the old saying goes, cream always rises to the top. Judging by the quality of the line up in the 16th different categories this year. Only the best of the best stood a chance to attract the attention of the esteemed judges. The panel of judges included big names like the CEO of Play’n GO, Yggdrasil, 888, NetEnt, Microgaming and VideoSlots to name but a few.

Undeniably, the most decorated company this year was Red Tiger Gaming. Gavin Hamilton jumped on the podium twice to collect trophies. The first time it was for Casino Product of the Year. A distinction that the CEO kindly accepted thanks to the Daily/Hourly Must Drop Jackpot his team pioneered. The second time it was to collect the Chief Executive of the year accolade. A trophy that his colleague Therese Hillman (NetEnt CEO) could have picked-up if she were not a judge, some say.
