LAS VEGAS, April 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rocket Games, the leading independent online social casino gaming company, received an honorable mention in the Best Social Casino Operator category at the prestigious annual iGaming North America (iGNA) Awards, held in Las Vegas in early April.
Posting industry-leading revenue growth of over 500% year-over-year in 2015, and recently recognized by industry experts Eilers & Krejcik Gaming as the breakout social casino developer of 2015 through their leadership position in the rapidly growing classic 3-reel mechanical slots genre (3RM), Rocket Games was judged by a panel of experts to have demonstrated considerable innovation in growing the overall social casino market.
Said Alex Pratt, Managing Director of iGaming Business: "Social casino is a very competitive segment in gaming, with many well-capitalized and entrenched businesses, so what Rocket Games has accomplished over the past 12 months has been particularly impressive. Growing as big as they did as fast as they did, without the backing of external investors or the resources of an established land-based operator, that was the foundation for our recognition of Rocket Games."
Nominated alongside DoubleDown Casino, Playtika and Zynga, the award for Best Social Casino Operator of 2015 ultimately went to MyVegas, with Rocket Games finishing in a very close second place, ahead of last year's winner, Playtika, in third.
"We are humbled to be recognized alongside such industry giants," said Niko Vuori, Chief Operating Officer of Rocket Games, who was in Las Vegas to receive the award. "It has been an incredible year for Rocket Games, but we are just getting started. Our 2016 goal is to cement ourselves as undisputed leaders in the 3RM genre, and to outgrow the market again."
