Videoslots Awards to be held during SiGMA week

Leading online casino operator Videoslots.com will host the first Videoslots Awards on November 24 at its offices in Malta.

The invite-only awards ceremony will recognise the industry’s best casino suppliers, as well as its most innovative and enjoyable slots titles.

Awards will be voted for by a judging panel chosen by, and including, Videoslots’ senior executives, while the Game of the Year award will be chosen by players of casino forum Casinomeister.

Alexander Stevendahl, CEO at Videoslots.com, said: “We’re excited to host our industry peers and valued suppliers at the inaugural Videoslots Awards.

“Suppliers sometimes don’t get the headlines and acclaim that operators enjoy, but without them continuing to innovate and provide us with fantastic slots and table games, the online casino industry wouldn’t be as successful as it is. The Videoslots Awards are about rewarding them for that.”

Videoslots will also present the ’Golden V’ award to the provider which has most shared the operator’s ambition to service its players with a unique and innovative casino experience over recent years.

Other categories at this year’s show include:

  • Game of the year

  • Provider of the year

  • Best low volatility game

  • Best medium volatility game

  • Best high volatility game

  • Best mobile game

  • Account manager of the year

  • Best innovation

  • Rising star

  • Golden V Award

The black-tie event will be a new addition to SIGMA week in Malta, with it taking place on the penultimate night of one of the biggest gaming trade shows around.

Attendees will enjoy a night of entertainment in Videoslots’ luxury offices before they are taken by a surprise means of transport to Level 22, one of St Julian’s hottest nightspots, for an eventful after-party.
