Who are the IGA winners?

Some names that came up in the above awards might be new to Canadian players, however, some operators and providers are well-known here in Canada.

Microgaming is one of them! Winner of the Innovator of the Year award, this is not Microgamings first prize at the IGA.

As a reputable games developer, Microgaming has collected an impressive array of awards over the years, a true testament, of this provider’s ability to adapt, grow and keep up with an ever-changing industry.

Other game developers, or suppliers, that made it are Relax Gaming as Unique Gaming Company of the Year, Just For The Win as Rising Star of the Year, Pragmatic Play for the RNG Casino Supplier of the Year, Yggdrasil for Slot Provider of the year, Scientific Games as Sustainable Business and IGT as Technology Provider/Supplier.

When it comes to operators we’re not surprised to see LeoVegas as Online Gaming Operator of the Year and Videoslots as Slots Operator of the Year.

Both LeoVegas and Videoslots have achieved excellent reputations over the years, with multiple awards behind their names. We’d be more surprised if they didn’t feature at all, since these are two operators that are constantly growing and at the forefront of the industry.

As online gambling enthusiasts, we look forward to the IGA and other iGaming awards held throughout the year as it tells us which companies are advancing and where to look for the next casino or game!
