LAS VEGAS, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- WagerWorks, the online and mobile subsidiary of International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT), was officially crowned "Slot Provider of the Year" at the inaugural EGR b2b Supplier Awards in London.

With more than ten years of experience in the online gaming market, WagerWorks is the leading provider of online, mobile and iDTV game content. WagerWorks was also a finalist in the "RNG Casino Supplier" and "Mobile Supplier" of the year categories.
"The honor of having WagerWorks crowned 'Slot Provider of the Year' is a true reflection of the game expertise we have as part of IGT.

"Our games are continuing to perform at the highest level with more and more clients seeing the benefit of partnering with the best content supplier in the market."
The award was a perfect conclusion to a positive month for WagerWorks which has seen UK operator Sportech expand its current games portfolio with additional WagerWorks titles on its Game On, Football Pools and Vernons brands. Additionally, the first expansion into the UK land-based amusement sector with ThePalaces.com highlighted the versatility and appeal of WagerWorks games to all areas of the gaming industry.
