Delegates at this month’s CasinoBeats Summit 2022 will have their say on what has been the most innovative slot release of the last 12 months during a special CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards live voting session on the final day of the conference.
The session, at the InterContinental in St Julian’s, Malta on 26th May, will see the studios behind the titles shortlisted in the hotly-contested Game Innovation awards category present their games to an audience of igaming industry executives and product specialists.
The presenting companies will also take questions about their exciting new mechanics or gameplay features from three members of the expert judging panel: Melanie Hainzer (CMO, Rootz), Josefine Hellström (head of casino at Casumo), and Allan Auning-Hansen (CEO at CEGO).
Once they have heard the presentations and the answers to the questions, the audience will be invited to vote for what they believe is the most innovative game.
The winning game, which will be chosen based 50 per cent on judge’s scores and 50 per cent on the audience vote, will be announced at the game developer awards ceremony at the Hilton, Malta that evening.
Rasmus Sojmark, founder and CEO of summit organiser SBC, said: “The online casino industry continues to break new ground, with the design and development teams of both long-established and new studios launching a succession of fantastic new games to entertain players.
“The special Game Innovation session at CasinoBeats Summit is a great opportunity to celebrate the teams behind the standout recent releases, hear more about the technology used in the slots, and to have your say on what you think is the best game of the past year.”
