Microgaming Bar ICEDid you know that Microgaming is one of the oldest game developers in the online gaming industry, having created the world’s first true online casino in 1994? They have continued to grow and expand their business over the many successful years that they have been operating.

Microgaming is already recognised as an industry leader and is renowned for being one the biggest online gaming developers in the world. Their success and hard work was celebrated when Microgaming was nominated for, and won, the prestigious Digital Product of the Year award at the Global Gaming Awards 2014 in September. 

The Global Gaming Awards were held in Las Vegas and brought together the entire online and offline gaming industry to honour some of the best and brightest companies based on their achievements of the past year.

The winners were chosen by a panel of 50 industry leaders, including Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever, while KPMG Gibraltar oversaw the voting process.

The title of Digital Product of the Year was awarded to Microgaming focusing on their June release of their Terminator 2 online video slot. The game is based on the award-winning movie and features an action-packed player experience. 

Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever and his team were thrilled to have taken first prize ahead of nine other nominees. The award was a particularly sweet victory as the panel of judges was comprised of fellow industry leaders meaning that Raatgever and his team had been chosen by their peers.

Raatgever had this to say on their big win: "We've had a busy year releasing some epic games to the industry, including our Terminator 2 online slot in June, followed by our Jurassic Park online slot in August. I take this opportunity to say a big well done to everyone involved in our game development – this is an award for you all."

Microgaming was also nominated for the Digital Industry Supplier of the Year award.
