Awards ceremonies to recognize online casinos and software developers in the sphere of online gambling are quite popular nowadays, and being the winner means the work of the company is appreciated and valued. Game Developer Awards were distributed in Malta at the CasinoBeats summit on May 25th, and we already know the names of the lucky winners who have become the best in their fields. Let’s look closer at the companies that received special attention at the Game Developer Awards ceremony. 

The closing day of the CasinoBeats summit which gathered the most influential companies of the gaming industry was marketed by an exciting awards ceremony with Gilberto Silva and Trudy Kerr as hosts who handed 23 awards to the best online casinos, software developers, and those who promote the industry. All awards can be divided into the following categories: Game Performance, Game Creation, Game Marketing, Game People, and SlotCatalog. 

Awards dedicated to individual achievements were distributed for the first time, which makes this Casino Beats awards ceremony unique. 


Money Train 3 slot by Relax Gaming was recognized by the Slot of the Year award. Thus, Relax Gaming continues to collect prestigious rewards. It was not the only award received by this iconic software developer that evening. It was also named SlotCatalog’s Game Studio of the Year – medium award.

BGaming was also among those studios that were recognized with several awards. It received Slot to Watch for Potion Spells and Game Music/Soundtrack award, as judges could not let music in Elvis Frog TRUEWAYS pass unnoticed.

Moreover, a prestigious Slot Legacy Title award was taken home by Net Entertainment for its Gonzo’s Quest. At the same time Slot Debut award was handed to Barbara Band for its Mustang Freedom slot. Let’s wait for new releases by this young ambitious software developer!
