Microgaming Wins at Global Gaming Awards 2015

October 1, 2015

At this year’s Global Gaming Awards, Microgaming won two awards. For the second year running, this software giant netted the Digital Product of the Year award and in addition to this, Microgaming also won the Digital Gaming Innovation award for its Wearable Technology and Virtual Reality.

The Global Gaming Awards 2015 took place again at the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center, Las Vegas, on Monday 28th September. It was up to a panel of 50 expert judges to cast their vote and decide who the winners would be. Microgaming’s Jurassic Park online pokie helped seal the judges minds to award Microgaming with the Digital Product of the Year award.

”We are so proud to win not one but two awards at this highly prestigious and credible award ceremony! Jurassic Park™ is an incredible game and the fact that the experience is just as impressive on mobile as it is online really does blow people away,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever.

He then went on to say, “But to win an award for innovation is particularly close to my heart as we have always worked so hard to stay several steps ahead of the industry, predicting trends and ensuring that our content works on emerging technology.” This 3D-rendered pokie is based on the 1993 Hollywood blockbuster movie of the same name.

Jurassic Park is the first such game online today to use Parallax Scrolling effects and it has become a popular favourite for millions of online gamers since it first appeared online in August 2014. This famous branded pokie can now be found at all of our top-rated Microgaming casinos, some of which include Jackpot City Casino, Royal Vegas Casino and Platinum Play Casino.

Microgaming’s VR Roulette helped them win the Digital Gaming Innovation of the Year award. This game uses Oculus Rift wearable technology which sends players to a virtual cyber world. VR Roulette uses the Oculus Rift DK 2 headset with Leap Motion 3D Controller to track a player’s hand movements and then project them into the 3D world.

“For those that have seen our slots work on smart watches and experienced our VR Roulette product, it is an incredible insight into the future of online gaming. A big thanks and well done to my team for this huge achievement,” added the CEO. All of these comments contained in this article were taken from an official Microgaming press release.
