This event is designed to recognize excellence in slot machine game development within the land-based casino gaming industry, iGaming, and social casino sector. All category winners were announced last Thursday, February 24 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

“On behalf of everyone at Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, I would like to congratulate all of the individual award winners, as well as this year’s Hall of Fame Class,” said Todd Eilers, Principal at Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, LLC. “I would also like to thank our Board of Advisors, official voters, VIPs, and our event sponsors. It was a great night celebrating the industry’s top games and people.”

The land-based category winners for the 4 annual EKG Slot Awards were determined by the official voting from over 120 qualified slot directors representing over 300 casinos across the U.S. and Canadian markets and representing roughly 300,000 total slot machines.
