SBC is excited to announce that nominations for the Game Creation and Game People categories of the prestigious Game Developer Awards, returning to Malta for their third edition in May, are now open. The nomination period will last until 24 February.
The awards ceremony, which is part of the CasinoBeats Summit conference and exhibition, will take place at the InterContinental Hotel on 25 May. The lavish event that recognises and celebrates the creative and innovative game development teams behind the industry’s most successful titles will be attended by 400 guests.
The CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards will feature 19 categories that honour the top game studios, individual casino games, streamers and game elements as well as innovation and the people who have contributed to the success of the best casino titles of the year. The categories are divided into five main groups:
- Game Performance (Slot of the Year, Slot to Watch, Slot Debut, Slot Legacy Title, Slot Collaboration of the Year)
- Game Creation (Game Mechanic of the Year, Game Feature of the Year, Game Licensed Content, Game Retro-style, Game Design & Art Direction, Game Music/Soundtrack)
- Game Marketing (Streamer of the Year, Innovation in Marketing)
- Game People (Product Manager, Game Designer, Game Composer).
SBC has also once again teamed up with SlotCatalog, a casino game ranking and insights platform, to create three data-driven categories for the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards 2023.
These categories include Outperforming Game Studio of the Year, which will be presented to the three game studios (small, medium, large) whose slot rank has increased the most compared to their position a year ago; Game Studio of the Year, which will be given to three game studios with the highest slot rank over the last 12 months; and Rookie of the Year, which will be awarded to the new game studio that went from having no distribution last year to achieving the biggest impact over the past year
Rasmus Sojmark, CEO & Founder of the event organiser SBC, said: “The CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards are a truly special occasion in my eyes. This ceremony is an opportunity to honour the often overlooked elements of game development, such as the best soundtrack, innovative game mechanics, unexpected success, and the individuals who made it all happen. It’s an event that recognises and celebrates the creativity, fun, and entertainment that make our industry a great place to work.”
The shortlists for the Game Performance and Game Marketing categories of the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards will be selected by SBC’s independent panel of judges, and the winners will be chosen through audience live voting at the CasinoBeats Summit conference and trade show.
The Game Creation and Game People categories will be open for nominations from 12 January to 24 February and the winners will be decided by the independent panel of judges. The Game People category is a new addition to the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards that aims to recognise and celebrate individuals who have actively contributed to the success of a top casino product.
The SlotCatalog categories, which are purely data-driven, will not require nominations or go through a judging process.
Last year’s winners of the CasinoBeats Game Developer Awards included companies such as Blueprint Gaming, Habanero, Peter & Sons, Playtech, Pragmatic Play, Relax Gaming and Stakelogic.
This year’s ceremony at the luxurious InterContinental Hotel will feature a welcome drinks reception and a lavish three-course dinner with complimentary beer, wine, and spirits. Tables and individual tickets are available to purchase here.
The shortlists will be announced on 21 March. Nominate here.

Endorphina completes another security milestone!
Starting 2024 strong, the top casino game provider Endorphina successfully completed the external audit by the renowned Testing Laboratory, achieving another milestone in the form of an ISMS Certificate according to local requirements in Italy! This plays an important role in cementing Endorphina’s position in the iGaming world.
Earlier this year, the iGaming software provider Endorphina successfully passed an external information security audit according to regulations governed by ADM. The goal of the multi-day audit was to map out the overall setup within the company, examine every detail involving security, and ensure the company’s games are completely safe for every player.
Over three years ago, Endorphina set a goal to be authorized in all regulated jurisdictions and continues to campaign across markets. By 2024, the company has reached 28 regulated markets and continues progressing rapidly.
n March 2024, Endorphina will organize a grand event, La Mistica dell’Endorphina, where guests can experience the true spirit of the innovative developer. The luxurious party promises to create the perfect networking opportunity for iGaming enthusiasts.
PlayStar Casino and SGG Media Debut New Casino Livestream Show
PlayStar Casino has teamed up with SGG Media to launch a new United States casino streaming show; one of the first fully-licensed streaming casino shows to reappear on Twitch
PlayStar Casino has made its first foray into the live streaming space with the launch of a new show, Casino Stream, in collaboration with SGG Media.
Casino Stream is one of the first fully-licensed streaming casino shows to reappear on Twitch. The show will see three New Jersey-based streamers take part in a weekly live action casino show, broadcast via Twitch. The hosts will play a range of games available via PlayStar Casino, bringing the excitement of legal casino and slots to be played online to the masses in ‘The Garden State’ all in real time.
Fully PlayStar-branded, the show will see a trio of New Jersey-based influencers immerse themselves in exciting slots and casinos available on the PlayStar website. The show hosts will be allocated a budget for each show, which they can use to play a diverse range of products during the live stream.
“PlayStar Casino is excited to partner with SGG Media in allowing New Jersey casino enthusiasts to watch and play our online slots and games,” the Chief Marketing Officer for PlayStar Gaming Group AB, Jon Bowden, said. “We provide the excitement of live, legal, casino games to be played online by New Jersey residents while a large viewership can view the action in real time.”
This new show marks a new milestone for both PlayStar Casino and SGG Media. Back in October of 2022, live streaming platform Twitch. tv banned all United States gambling sites that aren’t gambling licensed in the United States. This new show will pave the way for future online casino streaming in the United States.
SGG Media launched its legal sports gambling streaming show, Live Drive, on October 1, 2023, to an audience of nearly 25,000 sports fan live viewers on Twitch, YouTube and other streaming platforms. That show was the first United States fully legal and licensed live sports betting streaming program.
“Our Casino Stream show is focused on being completely compliant with all state gambling laws,” the Chief Executive Officer for SGG Media, Troy Paul, said. “PlayStar Casino is a licensed New Jersey casino and we will only allow verified adult gamblers located in New Jersey to play. Our streaming show hosts bring the thrill of live bets and viewing big wins to our huge online audience.”
PlayStar Gaming Group AB (http :// www. PlayStar. com) offers a fully-licensed online casino in the United States. Managed by a team built exclusively from the most experienced talent in the industry across the United States and European Union, PlayStar Casino delivers a ‘casino first’ platform through award-winning slots, table games and promotions.
SGG Media (https :// SGGMedia. com) features 2,000 sports content creator/influencers with a combined social media following of over 60 million sports and gambling fans.
“We create a huge audience for our streaming shows by generating exciting social media posts and videos of electrifying sports and gambling action,” Paul said.
