The annual EGR B2B Awards are the most awaited event in the online gambling calendar. The awards reward and celebrate the very best service providers in the online gaming industry, covering all the major electronic gaming disciplines. The 2017 awards ceremony took place on Tuesday June 6 at The Hurlingham Club, London.

Playtech has been a pioneer in the online gaming industry and has left an indelible imprint in the 2017 EGR B2B Awards. Playtech picked up five awards, which is a record for the event. The categories were Platform of the Year, Multi-channel supplier of the Year, Bingo Supplier of the Year, Poker Software and Poker Network of the Year.

In spite of their own awards, the bigger achievement for the software provider was Sky Casino winning this year's Review Innovation in Casino award for the new Playtech-supplied Live Casino, which offers players an enhanced omni-channel experience, product enhancements and richer gameplay. The new, state-of-the-art dedicated Live Casino was launched from Playtech's new studio in Riga in April this year. The first game offered was live roulette. Earlier this year Sky Casino also won the first ever annual Playtech Award bestowed by the software provider that rewards marketing excellence and innovation across Playtech licensees.

NetEnt, another leading provider of digital gaming solutions, also performed creditably at the 2017 EGR B2B Awards by winning in three categories. These were Mobile supplier of the year, RNG casino supplier of the year and Innovation in RNG casino software categories and they represent the core areas of the online casino business. Per Eriksson, CEO of NetEnt, comments, "It is hugely satisfying to once again have our achievements identified by the industry and our peers at the EGR B2B Awards.” To start with, NetEnt was nominated in an impressive 10 categories, which is a significant feat in itself. You will find the best of NetEnt online casino games at InterCasino.

The bulk of the online casino games are video slots and therefore the Slot Provider of the Year award bears significance at the EGR B2B Awards. In 2017 this award was won by Yggdrasil Gaming, another games supplier to InterCasino. Yggdrasil has won this award for the second year running, acknowledging the firm's market-leading portfolio of video slots. Yggdrasil triumphed over competitors like IGT, NetEnt, Playtech and Microgaming. The judges said that they were impressed by the variety, quality and consistent excellence of the Yggdrasil product suite.
