agerWorks was also a finalist in the "RNG Casino Supplier" and "Mobile Supplier" of the year categories.
"The honor of having WagerWorks crowned 'Slot Provider of the Year' is a true reflection of the game expertise we have as part of IGT. Among a myriad of suppliers, WagerWorks is the only one with deep roots in the traditional land-based casino business of IGT, and with that credibility comes a wealth of knowledge and experience," said Oliver Lofthouse, director and general manager at WagerWorks. "Our games are continuing to perform at the highest level with more and more clients seeing the benefit of partnering with the best content supplier in the market."
The award was a perfect conclusion to a positive month for WagerWorks which has seen UK operator Sportech expand its current games portfolio with additional WagerWorks titles on its Game On, Football Pools and Vernons brands. Additionally, the first expansion into the UK land-based amusement sector with ThePalaces.com highlighted the versatility and appeal of WagerWorks games to all areas of the gaming industry.
"We are thrilled to be given this prestigious honor," said Gideon Bierer, executive vice president new media at IGT. "This is a testament to the hard work and collaboration of our teams. Together, we are able to provide the top online gaming experience in jurisdictions where this type of gaming is available."
The start of June also saw the online release of the hit IGT multi-line slot, Noah's Ark, with immediate industry plaudits and player reaction making it WagerWorks' online game of the year to date. Widely acclaimed for the quality of its audio and visual appeal, Noah's Ark provides a true menagerie of entertainment with an iconic super-rich Split Symbols feature which counts for two symbols rather than one.
