Evolution Gaming received the award during the EGR Operator Awards 2019. The event was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Evolution is the undisputed leader in live casino games. This is the second year in a row they have received the honor of the Game of the Year. The company is based in Stockholm. A spokesman for the company said winning the same award, two years in a row, was an outstanding achievement. In the online casino industry, it is the most coveted award the industry offers.
EGR B2B rewards and celebrates the best providers in online gaming. It recognizes the achievements across all disciplines, which includes gaming software, betting, mobile, networks, IT, payments, recruitment, and infrastructure. The giant Deloitte oversaw this year's voting process. A third party has been used by EGR B2B to make sure the judging process is stringent, transparent, and fair in the industry. The Game of the Year category was voted on by operators who were shortlisted as one of the Operator Awards.
Monopoly Live is only available from Evolution. The live online game show is based on the world-famous game of Monopoly. It is complete with augmented reality. It offers 3D Bonus rounds, which are built around the escapades of Mr. Monopoly. The game provides the chance to win big multipliers. The game also provides an amazing virtual bonus. This is when Mr. Monopoly takes a stroll along with the board. He then awards prizes to the players who qualify.
Monopoly Live is a game of chance. The players see the live host spin the super-sized wheel. It is up to the player to predict which segment of the wheel it will stop on. Bets start at 10 cents.
Following the award ceremony Todd Haushalter, Evolution's Chief Product Officer said it was a real honor to win the award. He explained that it is a pleasure to work with one of the brand's greatest companies to create such a winning game.
Haushalter also said the company had never dreamed of winning back-to-back EGR Game of the Year awards. He noted that Evolution makes games they believe players will love. Also, creating games the staff want to play themselves. That is their goal. Haushalter said the award offers great motivation for 2020 and beyond.
Sebastian Johannisson, CFO of Evolution, explained the company was delighted to be given the award. He said the company prides itself on offering the very best live casino services.
