The 10th edition of the International Gaming Awards took place in 2017, on February 6th, at InterContinental London Park Lane. There, Microgaming won the Mobile Product award, winning first place in that particular category.
Microgaming is one of the pioneers of this particular category, since they’ve created the first casino software for mobile devices back in 2004, before smartphones even got a chance to become popular. Since that initial launch, Microgaming has worked hard and in time made available more than 350 titles for that platform, which now accommodates over 3,000 mobile devices. There are new titles added to the platform each month.
Microgaming also holds the record for the biggest jackpot win on a mobile device, since they’ve awarded the Mega Moolah progressive in August 2016, with a value at that time of €7,968,311.26. 350+ gaming brands have included the mobile products from Microgaming in their offer so far.
Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever, declared that they’re proud that they won this award, for the best Mobile Product. They predicted correctly in 2004 that mobile will be the future, and they were the first ones to create software for this type of platform, and they kept evolving ever since. They are happy that their efforts have been recognized by the rest of the industry.
