SG snaps up awards at ‘The Best Of Slots 2016’

Scientific Games Corporation grabbed first place in three categories in Strictly Slots magazine’s ‘The Best Of Slots 2016’.

Strictly Slots annually polls its readers, who are gaming enthusiasts and players, and compiles its ‘Best Of Slots’ awards among thousands of votes.

Scientific Games’ products received first place in the categories of ‘Favorite Video Slot Machine’ and ‘Favorite Video Slot Theme’ for The Wizard of Oz, and ‘Favorite Video Slot Bonus Round’ for Monopoly.

In addition, Scientific Games ranked among the top five in: ‘Favorite Video Slot Machine’; ‘Favorite Video Slot Theme’, ‘Favorite Video Slot Bonus Round’, ‘Favorite Reel Slot Machine’, ‘Favorite Reel Slot Theme, ‘Favorite Reel Slot Bonus Round’ and Favorite Progressive Slot Machine’.

Scientific Games Group chief executive, Gaming Derik Mooberry said, “This is an incredible honor for our company and for our products. We take pride in knowing players selected our innovative games as their favorites, which speaks highly of the work being done by our game development, marketing and sales teams. This level of recognition will only further drive us to improve upon our many innovation initiatives to provide the most entertaining and engaging play experience for our customers.”

The Wizard of Oz has been the publication’s favorite video slot since its introduction in 2007. The game features the sights and sounds of the original 1939 classic and uses “Sensory Immersion” to bring players into the game.

Monopoly has also been featured multiple times as a winner in the Favorite Video Slot Bonus Round category, due in part to players’ love for the popular brand. The game’s bonus round works in the classic Monopoly board and rewards players certain amounts of credits for landing on different properties.
