Global iGaming provider Red Tiger Gaming gained a new accolade recently when it claimed the Casino Product of the Year award at the 2021 Global Gaming Awards for its Gonzo’s Quest Megaways online pokie.
The winning title is a sequel to NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest that still has a significant loyal following and stands as one of NetEnt’s most popular pokies. It was also the first online pokie to integrate the Avalanche mechanic. Red Tiger Gaming has further enhanced the gameplay experience with the Megaways mechanic licensed by Big Time Gaming.
The Global Gaming Awards are held twice a year, with the 2021 edition taking place in London.
The judging panel handed down its verdict after an extensive voting process that comprised a self-nomination window and submissions from a nominations panel as well as the Gambling Insider group. The judges included industry CEOs and executives and the process was adjudicated by KMPG.
