Malta-based companies among EGR Award winners
The EGR Awards 2014 held last night at The Pavilion, Tower of London, saw quite a few faces hailing from the remote gaming industry base in Malta, including the likes of Simon Hammon (NetEnt), Angelo Dalli (in picture) (Bit8), Olga Finkel (in picture) (WH Partners), Philip Kellin (LeoVegas) as well as representatives from Pentasia.
After an exquisite gala dinner, the evening’s master of ceremony, stand-up grizzled comedian Henry Paker, kicked off the awards that saw none less than 39 awards being dished out.
In an interview with SiGMA, Angelo Dalli, winner of the Software Rising Star award, had these words to say; “The Software Rising Star award is the gaming industry’s recognition of Bit8’s innovative and fresh solutions and service processes around it that we have rapidly built up in a very short time. Our disruptive Artificial Intelligence solutions have started to make a tangible impact on the industry that is slated to ignite a new wave of nimble operations using our platform to gain competitive advantage.” He went on to elaborate, “As one of the new breed of gaming software companies Bit8 is at the forefront of providing flexible solutions that allow operators to customise their offerings without sacrificing their individual marketing style and preventing brand dilution, which is often the case experienced with tools that do not allow for a modular and customisable approach.”
Parliamentary Secretary (Government of Malta) Jose Herrera said that the results obtained in the EGR Awards 2014 show the importance of the industry in the local context; “Thus, as the person politically responsible from this industry, I’m doing my utmost to keep it sustainable both in terms of promotion but also from the legislative point of view”.
