Slotsoo Casino Awards Is Back – Check Out the Seven Winners for 2024

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Slotsoo is back with another edition of their Casino Awards. The competition was fierce, and most of the trophies went to different operators compared to last year. Continue reading to find out who the seven winners were this time, and to be the first to hear about Slotsoo’s newest ventures.

The Casinos that Received Legendary Status
This year, the following casinos made it into “The Seven”:

  1. The Gambling GOAT– Slotshammer
  2. The Bonus Buff– Scarabet
  3. The Loyalty Lord– Rollino
  4. The Withdrawal Wizard– Rakoo
  5. The Gamification Guru– Hit’n’Spin
  6. The Payout Professor– Stupid Casino
  7. The Noisy Newcomer– Gangsta Casino

The main trophy, The Gambling GOAT, goes to the overall best casino. Last year, during the inaugural ceremony, it was the Campeon Affiliates site Svenbet that won it. At the Slotsoo Casino Awards 2024, the prize went to their other brand Slotshammer.

Campeon also scored a second trophy this year, with their newest casino Scarabet. The rest five trophies were awarded to different operators compared to last year. Markus Björk, head writer at Slotsoo, congratulates all the winners and explains that this is a sign of the fierce competition and the constant innovation in the iGaming industry:

“The fact that most of the trophies went to new operators shows that nobody is safe. Existing companies need to constantly keep innovating or they will risk losing their shares to newcomers. European casino players in 2024 rank value above everything else.”

Expansion of the Casino Awards to Local Markets

This Spring, Slotsoo also held their first casino awards for one of their language versions. The Finnish Kasinogaala 2024 had the trophies and names modified to fit the local market, but the core idea of the different trophies remained the same: Fun categories that resonate to players.

An 8th trophy was introduced for the casino with the best streaming services. With this award they wanted to highlight the interactive and social nature of casino gaming. Playing online slots in 2024 is not about sitting alone in a dark basement staring at a big screen.

What Else Is New at Slotsoo? Pragmatic Play Tournaments

While many businesses are enjoying a relaxing break during the summer months, Slotsoo is in full swing to grow their website. Earlier this week, they launched free slot tournaments. This new project is a cooperation with Pragmatic Play and one of the main goals is to get more people interested in slots.

In the Slotsoo Social Tournaments, participants have the chance to win gift cards, without putting their own money at risk. The currently ongoing July tournament started a few days early and offers a 500€ Amazon gift card as the grand prize. The winner is the one who manages to get the biggest total win in the fish-themed slot Big Bass Floats My Boat with 50 spins.

The tournaments are open to all adults that live in the EU/EEA region, except for a few restricted countries. Markus Björk hopes that the monthly tournaments will gain a lot of popularity, and informs that they also have a special Honor & Glory tournament:

“The Honor & Glory tournament lasts until the end of 2024 and consists of 1000 spins to the game Gates of Olympus 1000. If more than one million people register to the tournament the winner will get a really cool secret prize worth a lot of money. If there are 999 999 participants or less, then they just win honor and glory.“

Rootz is on an unstoppable path, earning the title of Best Online Casino Operator of the Year

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Rootz continues on an unstoppable trajectory, securing the title of Best Online Casino Operator of the Year in the coveted Malta iGaming Excellence Awards (MiGEA) 2024. The awards ceremony, which took place at The Hilton, St Julian’s, Malta, saw Rootz joining industry leaders on the podium once again, underpinning the company’s mission to become one of the world’s leading provider of entertainment experiences.

Rootz was nominated in four categories, including Best Workplace of the Year, Best Employer Brand of the Year, Best Online Casino Operator of the Year, and Best Gaming Company of the Year, demonstrating its versatility as an online gaming all-rounder and a great place to work.

Hitting all the right notes

Earlier in 2024, Rootz not only celebrated five years of offering world-class products and services but also picked up the accolade of Mobile Operator of the Year at the International Gaming Awards in February. The relatively young company has proven itself capable of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the industry’s biggest and oldest brands.

Rootz is better known as the parent company to online casino brands Wildz, Wheelz, Spinz, Caxino and Chipz, offering seamless entertainment via proprietorial software as well as striking brand differentiation, including the Wildz Granny and the notable presence of Wheelz ambassador The Hoff. Spinz continues to break new ground in the world of online streaming while Caxino and Chipz offer popular experiences in their respective markets.

The company has stated that its goal is to “deliver a ground-breaking experience that exceeds expectations, inspiring new standards as creators of the go-to digital playground, where simplicity meets adrenaline”.

Making an impact

Rootz team members represented the company at the event, which showcases organisations and individuals that continue to drive iGaming as one of the country’s leading business sectors. In recent years, Malta has maintained a premier position globally in the industry, owing largely to the Malta Gaming Authority’s reputation as a best-practice regulatory authority.

Despite Malta’s size geographically, the country is a dominant player in regional and international gambling, with many major companies maintaining either headquarters or large regional offices on the island. The MiGEA awards, recognising excellence in this competitive environment, typically honour companies that are challenging competitors on the world stage.

Rootz CEO Sam Brown says of this latest accolade: “We’re delighted to have won the title of Best Online Casino Operator; it’s a reminder that our peers recognise us as capable of making an impact in Malta and the global markets. As a company, we feel that we’re laying the foundation for long-term success, and we rely on our exceptional teams to bring those goals to life”.

The company has previously stated that it has its sights set on ambitious targets for the remainder of the year; the achievement of two impressive awards showcases its commitment to securing its leadership position.
