The fifth edition of the CasinoBeats Summit concluded its eventful three-day run with the grand presentation of the Game Developer Awards, the gaming industry’s version of the Oscars, honoring the industry’s most exceptional game developers and their groundbreaking creations.
At the prestigious InterContinental Hotel in Saint Julian’s, Malta, the event spotlighted remarkable achievements and innovation in the iGaming sphere. This year, the accolades went to a few standout developers and titles that have shaped the iGaming landscape with their forward-thinking approach.
In one of the summit’s critical performance categories, the award for Slot of the Year was presented to the inventive team at Relax Gaming for their title, Money Train 3. This award marks the third recognition for the popular Western saga, adding another feather to its cap, and solidifying its reputation as a vanguard in the industry.
The Slot Legacy Title Award, honoring a game with significant longevity and influence in the industry, went to a fan-favorite title that, even in 2023, continues to captivate players – Gonzo’s Quest. Introduced to the market by NetEnt in 2010, the title has seen continued success and iterations, including Gonzo’s Quest Megaways and the game show, Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt.
The Playtech slot game, Cash Collect: Gold Rush, garnered recognition in the game development category, winning the Game Licensed Content award. Meanwhile, Mistery Drop by Wazdan and Nitropolis 4 by ELK Studios triumphed in the Game Feature of the Year and Game Design & Art Direction categories, respectively.
This prestigious event, the CasinoBeats Summit, and its Game Developer Awards, will return next year to the InterContinental Hotel in Saint Julian’s. Scheduled for May 21-24, 2024, the event will continue to focus on the future of gambling, emphasizing the strategy, innovation, and development of the iGaming sector.
We extend our hearty congratulations to all winners and look forward to more innovation and dynamic game development that will undoubtedly make the next edition of the awards just as, if not more, exciting.
