he 3rd Annual EKG Slot Awards is produced by Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, LLC and is designed to recognize excellence in slot machine game development within the land-based casino gaming industry and interactive gaming sector. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, EKG did not host a live in-person event. Instead, EKG announced award winners earlier this week via social media.

“On behalf of everyone at Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, I would like to congratulate all of the individual award winners as well as this year’s Hall of Fame Class, said Todd Eilers, Principal at Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, LLC. I would also like to thank our Board of Advisors, Official Voters, and our Event Sponsors.”

The land-based category winners were determined by official voting from over 100 qualified slot directors representing over 300 casinos across the U.S. and Canadian markets and representing roughly 300,000 total slot machines. For the Social Casino and iGaming segments, winners were determined by voting from a distinguished panel of social casino industry experts.
