[Company News] It was a triple celebration for Evolution Group at the virtual Global Gaming Awards 2021 ceremony, streamed live from London on YouTube, Monday 28 June, 15:00 BST. Evolution was again crowned the best Online Casino Supplier, while the group’s NetEnt and Red Tiger brands both won top Product awards.
Evolution was named Online Casino Supplier of the Year for the third consecutive year and beat nine other shortlisted companies to win the prestigious international award, which recognises the strongest, most innovative online casino suppliers over the last 12 months.
NetEnt won the Product Launch of the Year award for its Divine Fortune™ Megaways™ video slot game. Red Tiger, meanwhile, picked up the Casino Product of the Year accolade for Gonzo’s Quest™ Megaways™, another hugely successful video slot. The winning titles are enhanced versions of the two most popular games in video slots history, now with a further layer of excitement in the form of the celebrated MegaWays™ functionality, which varies the ways to win on every spin.
Accepting the awards on behalf of Evolution, NetEnt and Red Tiger, was Fredrik Bjurle, Director of Product at Evolution, saying he was “super-excited” to win the three awards. He emphasised that as Evolution has been going for 15 years, it is still a great honour to be named Online Casino Supplier of the Year.
Talking about the impact of the NetEnt and Red Tiger brands becoming part of Evolution Group, he said: “The Evolution Group is now a powerhouse, with best in-class know-how and technology across Live Casino, RNG table games and slots.”
He added that: “We are leveraging the three Evolution, NetEnt and Red Tiger brands using the excellent IP, such as the famous slots game character, Gonzo, from slots to live, and adding new features such as Megaways™”.
