On Monday 28th September, the second ever Global Gaming Awards took place once again at the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center in Las Vegas and for the second year in a row, Microgaming scooped the Digital Product of the Year Award. Last year the runner up in this category was NetEnt and this year the runner up was Playtech.

Microgaming received this award for its iconic Jurassic Park slot machine which first arrived in casinos on August 6th, 2014. This 5 reeled slot has 243 ways to win per spin and it is based on the 1993 Hollywood blockbuster movie of the same name which starred Sam Neil, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and the late Richard Attenborough, who died just weeks after this epic online slot was released. This branded online slot machine can now be found in more than 120 different fully licensed online casinos.

This is one of the most action-packed slots available online today and it was launched simultaneously across multiple platforms. The Jurassic Park slot is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode and depending on where you are playing means that you will either have the option of being able to launch this game instantly in your browser across Microgaming’s non-downloadable Flash or Quickfire platform or from within Microgaming’s perfectly secure casino download client. This game is also now available on mobile and Microgaming’s state of the art mobile casino software is compatible with most modern smartphone & tablet devices.

Also at the Global Gaming Awards 2015, Microgaming picked up the Digital Gaming Innovation of the Year award for its hard work in the field of Virtual Reality and Wearable Technology. “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,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever.

“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,” added the CEO (all comments were taken from an official Microgaming press release).

In the Digital Gaming Innovation category, the runner up this year was The Spin Lab (NYX Gaming Group) and other shortlisted contenders that Microgaming fended off thanks to its VR Roulette game included Adge, BetConstruct, Betradar, Betsoft, iGaming Cloud, Lottotech, NetEnt, NYX and Steadylogic. This category was sponsored by OpenBet.
