Viking Runecraft Nominated For EGR Game Of The Year

But of all the categories, “Game of the Year” is still special. It rewards excellence in the most distilled version of what online casino is about — creating great games.

Canadian online casino players know a great online slot when they see it, and Viking Runecraft by leading and trusted developer Play N’Go is definitely one of them.

Today, that reputation was rewarded with a nomination for the prestigious EGR Game of the Year Award:

One of the industry’s top awards

Being nominated for any EGR award is a huge deal for a developer. The online casino market is fiercely competitive, as companies try to outdo one another in their quest to bring players bigger and better online experiences all the time.

But of all the categories, “Game of the Year” is still special. It rewards excellence in the most distilled version of what online casino is about — creating great games. That’s why Play’N GO’s CEO, Johan Törnqvist was so excited about the nomination:

“Viking Runecraft has been a huge success since we released it earlier in the year and I’m thrilled it’s been nominated for EGR Game of the Year. “I’d like to thank our designers and developers for producing such an immersive and hugely playable game that has introduced a number of new features to the slots market,” he said.

An Outlier of Excellence

Viking Runecraft has only been attracting players to its reels since late April of this year. Yet in that short time, it has managed to completely win over both recreational and professional slots players like with its unique combination of superb graphics and excellent gameplay:

“The game has achieved an extraordinary feat in seeing its popularity increase since launch, and its revenue and average play time has consistently outperformed the market,” Törnqvist said.

There is no doubt that Viking Runecraft earned this nomination. While it will be up against stiff competition from the year’s best and most innovative games, we will definitely not be surprised to see this amazing title set sail for online slot glory this fall.
