Congratulations to our friends over at 4ThePlayer, who deservedly picked up the prestigious Innovation to Slots award at the recent EGR event in London. What makes the win so impressive for the team is that they successfully beat off huge competition from iGaming giants and other leading FTSE 250 companies.
But this win was always on the cards, especially for a gaming provider that dedicates its time to innovation and delivering the latest in player-oriented gameplay. Despite the big-name competition, everyone at Slots Temple always had the belief the 4ThePlayer team would pick this one up. Just one look at the recent games coming out of its studio shows why it came out as the overall winner.
More interesting is the finer detail of the EGR’s Innovation award. Not only did the 4ThePlayer team have to show innovation in development and delivery, but also slot concept ideas, user experience, product differentiation and understanding what casino players want from their slots gameplay. On top of that, the award was based on commercial success, which is glaringly obvious over the last several releases.
Our Favourite 4ThePlayer Slots
4 Fantastic Fish is excellent example, and games like this have helped catapult the 4ThePlayer team into the big league. You can find 15 games already in the casino space from this provider. This recent award will only spur them on to create more slots, be more innovative, and deliver more entertaining experiences that focus on the players.
After all, that is exactly what has put the team in this current award-winning position. Focusing on the players has always been the aim, and hard work is finally paying off.
Amazing Player-Focused Features
This unrelenting focus on the player is the key factor in picking up the award, which is understandable due to the fact the team are all slot players themselves. Various features have been created in the back rooms of the studio, including Big Reel Portrait Mode, Future Power, and Win Time.
These features allow players to enjoy more of the mobile screen (up to 70% over the typical 20%) when playing slots, unlock in-game enhancers, and immerse themselves in timed free spin bonus games rather than spinning a set number of spins. These are all major innovations in pushing the slot game forward as they break boundaries in what a slot can do.
We could go and wax lyrical about 4ThePlayer all day long. Not every day do you see a game studio making so many major improvements on our beloved slot game. It's great to see the team getting recognised on the big stage, but this EGR award is not alone on the shelf in their office. The team took bronze for 90k Yeti Gigablox in the ‘Slot Collaboration of the Year’ and was named the winner for ‘Outperforming Small Game Studio of the Year’ at the Casino Beats Game Developer Awards just a few weeks ago.
A Big Congratulations!
Congratulations to the team at 4ThePlayer. But we have a feeling they will already be working on yet more innovative slot ideas to build on this recent success. We look forward to playing more slot releases from this talented studio in the future!
