IGT and MGA Games win big on SlotJava
International Game Technology (IGT) was one of the big winners at an online awards show which was hosted by iGaming affiliate Infinileads SL, and was put on to acknowledge the most popular slot developers and slot titles all over the company’s SlotJava brands back in 2020.
The prizes were chosen by the whole number of free plays across over 1,700 slots from more than 100 different providers on Slotjava.it and Slotjava.es in 2020. The five most desired categories were ‘Most Popular Game Developer’, ‘Most Popular Slot’, ‘Most Popular Mobile Slot’, ‘Most Popular Slot Theme’ and ‘Most Popular Branded Slot’.
IGT scored the prize for top developer in Italy, where over 735,780 games were played through Slotjava.it, as well as the top three spots for best slot (Sphinx, Sphinx Wild and Gypsy Moon) and the best mobile slot (Sphinx – 167,737 plays). Joining IGT on the podium for most popular slot developer in Italy were Novomatic (347,858 plays) and WMG, whose massive 42,230 plays were led by ‘groundbreaking games’ including popular title Fowl Play Gold.
IGT also obtained the best branded slot on Slotjava.it thanks to Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and the most popular theme in Ancient Egypt, which raked in more than 500,000 plays. In the meantime, IGT and Novomatic enjoyed correspondingly powerful activity through Infinileads’ Slotjava.es brand, but were defeated for the title of the best developer prize by MGA Games (317,269 games). Novomatic ended up in second place with 206,277 plays, while IGT titles were played 99,517 times.
MGA’s La Mina De Oro Plus was named the best slot title with over 50,000 plays (50,775), followed by Book of Deluxe by Novomatic (41,098) and MGA’s The Haunted Mansion (36,302).
Despite that, IGT was not to be refused yet another one of the major titles, as Cleopatra took home the top mobile game. IGT’s Ancient Theme also enjoyed constant success as the most popular slot theme on Slotjava.es, but MGA got the best branded slot with Popeye Treasure Hunter.
“We are excited about our first SlotJava Awards and think it was a great way to wrap up 2020 with some fun and interesting slot data,” said Eric Stööp, founder of Infinileads SL. “The infographic we created gives an accurate view of the most popular slot machines in each specific market, as they are based on a dataset of millions of user generated transactions.”
Niklas Lundström, Product Director at Infinileads SL, also said: “With more than 1,700 free to play slots from 100 different providers (and still counting), it’s been a huge amount of data to analyse but we’ve managed to narrow it down to some solid winners and are all looking forward in presenting them in our own unique way.”
