Our favourite game provider has done it again! NetEnt has clinched the hotly contested Game of the Year award at the EGR Operator Awards, with its video slot Guns N’ Roses. We always knew they had it in them!
The EGR Operator Awards are held every year and bring together over 600 professionals working within the iGaming industry, across all sectors. This event is the benchmark for industry performance, including customer services, social responsibility, tech, marketing and more, in different verticals suck as sports betting, mobile casinos and so on.
This year, the EGR Operator Awards were held at the Artillery Gardens in London at the end of November. Professionals from all over the world made their way to the event to see which among them would be recognized for their excellent work.
A rocking winner
The Guns N’ Roses slot was the first in the NetEnt Rocks! trilogy of games, alongside slots featuring Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead. It has proven itself immensely popular with players and for good reason – NetEnt really pulled out all the stops with this game, investing heavily in creating a game that captured the spirit of the band as well as being technically sound and visually (and audibly) stunning.
Guns N’ Roses was shortlisted alongside 12 other games but at the end of the day, the rock legends took home the coveted prize. And this wasn’t the first time either! Last year, NetEnt also won the Game of the Year award with the Mexican-themed title Spinata Grande. They are starting to develop quite the collection of awards!
Speaking after NetEnt received the award, Per Eriksson, CEO of NetEnt, said, “It’s an incredible achievement to win Game of the Year for the second successive year and we’re incredibly proud of the achievements of Guns N’ Roses.
“It has been NetEnt’s most ambitious project to date, so we’re delighted that our hard work and endeavours have paid off. We couldn’t be happier to top a really strong field.”
