A considerable part of this process was the brand-new set of SlotsCalendar Awards, for which you, the player, voted over the month of April!

The result was an amazing level of involvement that we can credit to our user base’s desire to express their opinion. Furthermore, we did well by our promise and selected a winner from among the voters on the 8th of May, 2024.

You voted for your favorite brand in each of our award categories, and now we have the final results. It’s time to unveil our winners and provide a few explanations about some of their outstanding traits!

Game Studio of the Year – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play continues to consolidate its impact on the iGaming industry by combining consistent output with creative prowess. In an industry with such acerbic competition, we can say that that prevailing is much more than a menial task. There is a lot that goes into creating high-powered games, and Pragmatic seems to have cracked the code.

Game Studio of The Year

Its influence goes well beyond slot machines, as the studio’s reach also delves into live gaming. The company has a distinctive style, takes inspiration from many thematic fronts, and involves its own marks of innovation. Pragmatic Play games are among the most popular options in most online casinos, including those that feature among our laureates.

At the end of the day, the players who actually enjoy the games have the final word. The studio’s popularity speaks volumes about its products. Moreover, the same users, those of you who voted, have chosen to make Pragmatic Play the inaugural Game Studio of the Year at the SlotsCalendar Awards 2024! Our congratulations to Pragmatic!

Game of the Year – Gates of Olympus (Pragmatic Play)

A game aggregator like us could only do right by creating this category. You voted for the outstanding game of the year, showcasing that qualitative slot creations can go a long way. Inspiration, production thoroughness, and the right creative choices can be of great effect when combined correctly.

Game of the Year

Pragmatic Play did a wonderful job with its 2021 release when it launched Gates of Olympus. It took the beloved theme of Greek mythology, combined it with a high volatility level, an above-average RTP (96.5%), and landed on a hit.

The slot is dynamic, grand in its presentation, and has remained at the top of most popular slots over the last 3 years. Furthermore, its status as the winner of the Game of the Year SlotsCalendar Award proves how beloved it is among you – the players! Our congratulations to the winner!

Rising Star – Dawn of Kings (Hacksaw Gaming)

The Rising Star Award is a distinction that we envisioned as a way to highlight the ascension in popularity of a specific casino game. Our selections were a combination of newer games that started to rack in numbers, making them instant favorites for this award.

Rising Star

Your pick was Dawn of Kings – a slot that launched not even a full month before the opening of the voting. This aspect makes its victory particularly impressive, showcasing that the right creation formula can lead to soaring results.

The game capitalizes on the popularity of the adventure genre, Ancient Egyptian tomb raiding, and a set of impressive animations and user experience elements. Its high volatility and great RTP metrics prove that Hacksaw Gaming’s creation has burgeoning success in its hands! Our congratulations to this year’s rising star!

Casino of the Year – Pin Up Casino

Pin Up Casino is the grand winner of the Casino of the Year award, surpassing its competitors in what appeared to be a tight race. The casino is an all-rounder whose advantages are instantly recognizable. Moreover, its player-centric attitude towards gambling services proves that the brand is in a fantastic position to continue consolidating its profile.

Casino of The Year

Pin Up Casino has an excellent reputation that marries our expert opinions with your own player perspectives. This casino brand is an especially powerful situation due to its outstanding game collection, mobile adaptability through a dedicated app, and plenty of juicy bonuses!

We, the SlotsCalendar personnel, hold the brand in high regard and find the results to be a natural crowning of an online casino that has earned all its flowers. Despite being associated with a less-reputed governing authority (Curaçao’s Antillephone NV), Pin Up has proven to be a safe gambling platform.

We would like to extend our congratulations to Carletta NV, the owners of this brand. We hope that the casino’s operations will continue to thrill players as much as it has!

Live Casino of the Year – Ice Casino

Ice Casino is one of the brands that was in contention for every casino-related award. According to your votes, the casino’s primary advantage among its peers was its live dealer game collection. Despite the fact that slots are ever-popular in online gambling, live casino games are still beloved and highly popular in the iGaming sector.

Live Casino of the Year

What makes Ice Casino’s live game collection so appealing is its sheer volume. It features live dealers from a significant number of providers. This allows you to choose from different experiences, betting levels, and varied presentation modules. The collection features numerous games with varying formats.

Brivio Limited, the company behind Ice Casino, invested significantly in this casino dimension. The results speak for themselves, proving that a great product can satisfy an audience when its favorite gaming type runs on sound operating principles. Congratulations to Ice Casino for becoming our inaugural Live Casino of the Year!

Best Bonus Selection – Verde Casino

Despite being the most recently released casino brand among the winners, Verde Casino has imposed itself as a desirable option in this entertainment sector. Under the guidance of Wiraon BV, this 2022-launched brand has quickly risen up the ranks and made a name for itself.

Best Bonus Selection

We can safely say that Verde Casino checks the boxes of a qualitative casino. While its Curaçao licensing is not the most trustworthy, the casino shines through its game collection, language availability, customer support, and other aspects.

However, this casino brand’s crowning achievement is its promotional makeup. As a result, Verde Casino won your votes and was a well-deserved winner of the Best Bonus Selection award. 

Its offers tick off the boxes for both casino and sports incentivization. Moreover, its bonuses provide options for new and existing players alike. Its bonus collection is a streamlined selection of offers that provide comprehensive rewards for all user categories. Congratulations on a well-deserved victory for Verde Casino!

Responsible Gaming – Betsson

Betsson is a veteran brand that has been in the midst of online gambling since 2001. As a result of its experience, it learned how to create a safe and supportive platform for its players. It’s highly commendable when a casino brand employs its own experience efficiently.


As an MGA-licensed platform, Betsson proves that it knows what it takes to help its users be careful in their approach to gaming. Not only does it promote responsibility, but it also allows providing the resources for such a set of actions.

Playing here will allow you to implement an impressive number of measures that will set clear parameters for your gambling experience. You can set up notifications on your gameplay time, set limits for deposits, self-assess, and self-exclude entirely.

It seems that Betsson has continuously helped you to play responsibly, as proven by the results of this vote. We would like to congratulate Betsson, the winner of the Responsible Gaming award, and thank them (and the rest of the nominees) for pushing for a safe and responsible place for players!


In our final words of this award season, we’d really like to thank our users for believing in our desire to reward the best brands in online gaming. Our choice to do it according to your votes has proven that the players understand which iGaming product does its job best.

We also want to give another set of proverbial applause to the big winners of the SlotsCalendar Awards 2024! Furthermore, we’d like to congratulate the winner of the iPhone 15 as well! Your contributions are greatly appreciated, and your effort is already set in stone.

Naturally, this is but the beginning of the prestige building of these awards. Until next year, continue to enjoy yourself and play responsibly! We’d like to hear your opinions next year as well!
