It comes as no surprise that the Guns N’ Roses slot has won the Game of the Year award at the eGR Operator Awards 2016. Those who have played this slot know why it was picked as the top game this year.
NetEnt’s Guns N’ Roses Comes Out on Top
Guns N’ Roses is the first of the three slots in the NetEnt Rocks trilogy. The other two slots are Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead. Guns N’ Roses was released amid much excitement at the beginning of the year on January 21st, 2016. The game gained instant popularity with players not only because of the good music, but because NetEnt gave players the chance to experience the rock band in the form of a quality slot.
The slot game was released simultaneously for both online players in the instant play format, and for NetEnt Touch mobile players. The game was designed using HTML5 technology. Guns N’ Roses is not only the top slot this year, it appears to be the most popular NetEnt slot release of all time.
NetEnt’s Guns N’ Roses slot was one of 12 games nominated for the Game of the Year award at the 12th annual eGR Operator Awards. Last year, NetEnt also won the Game of the Year award for the popular slot game Spiñata Grande. The digital entertainment company has created a number of excellent slots this year with Guns N’ Roses topping them all.
The Chief Executive Officer of NetEnt, Per Eriksson, commented on the exciting win: “It’s an incredible achievement to win Game of the Year for the second successive year and we’re incredibly proud of the achievements of Guns N’ Roses. It has been NetEnt’s most ambitious project to date, so we’re delighted that our hard work and endeavours have paid off. We couldn’t be happier to top a really strong field.”
