The EGR B2B awards were held Tuesday night in London.
It’s the sixth year these awards have been running; each year recognising those egaming service providers and software developers judged to have been the best in their category over the last year or so.
For the 6th year running Evolution Gaming have taken out the award for best Live Casino Supplier. They remain the only winner of this award since it was introduced.
Understandably the folk at Evolution are quite chuffed. Although I guess the thrill of victory must diminish a bit as the years pass, the trophy cabinet fills up and expectations set in.
The company’s UK Managing Director of Evolution Gaming, Helen Hedgeland said of the win:
“To be voted once again the top provider in the Live Casino sector is an enormous honour. It caps another very successful year in which we have delivered strong results and competitive advantage for our licensees.
The last 12 months have seen Evolution introduce numerous product innovations including hugely scalable Blackjack Bet Behind, Blackjack Party – which has opened up online Live Blackjack to a wider mass-market audience – and continuing extension of our mobile offering. Immersive Roulette also picked up the EGR Game Of The Year award, and we followed on from that with the introduction of Immersive Lite for licensees with dedicated tables. It’s been a big year for client launches too. PokerStars, Full Tilt and Danske Spil all launched dedicated environments from day one, plus we’ve signed further big names such as Mecca and win2day.”
Key criteria looked at by the judges of this category are listed on the EGR site as:
- product development;
- user interface and experience;
- understanding of customer needs; and
- jurisdictional compliance;
during the period March 2014 to March 2015.
- Platform of the Year (Playtech),

- RNG Casino Supplier (Playtech),
- Poker Network (Microgaming),

But I bet they’d trade all these for what must now surely be the blue-ribbon category…Live Casino Supplier:)
