Slots maker Wazdan has partnered with the team at SiGMA to sponsor four of the hottest categories of the Malta Gaming Awards.

The fifth edition of SiGMA will take place between the 28th and 30th of November at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta’ Qali. Positioned at the cutting edge of a very competitive industry, it has evolved into the definitive iGaming showcase. SiGMA 2018 will welcome over 400 sponsors and exhibitors, 200 industry-leading speakers and a record-breaking 12500 attendees from over 80 countries, solidifying its reputation as a staple on the global iGaming calendar.

Malta Gaming Awards is one of the biggest rating events in the industry. This third edition has three unique features: entrants must have a strong Malta connection, all proceeds from the event will go to charity and the Awards will be held during Malta Gaming Week. Guests of honour include H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the President of Malta, and world-famous Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja.

Wazdan is sponsoring four awards in total: Fastest Growing White Label, Sports Book Operator, Careers Programme, and Multi-Product Provider. This sponsorship reflects the dynamic slots maker’s industry commitment.

Wazdan has picked up a number of awards this year, winning the award for ‘Online Casino Innovator 2018’ at the Central and Eastern Europe Gaming Conference (CEEGC) held in Budapest and ‘Hot Product’ Award at G2E Asia. The company also won ‘Start-up of the Year’ at Malta’s iGaming Excellence Awards 2018 and was shortlisted for EGR Awards and SBC Awards 2018.

With intensive investment and effort in R&D, the company hopes to unlock additional areas of play while providing partner casinos and aggregators with a range of added-value features which impact positively on the bottom-line. Part of this quest is to make players’ game sessions longer and to deliver tools to partners which will allow them to attract players with Wazdan proprietary games.

Wazdan is positioned at the forefront of the slots industry with a suite of ground-breaking technology, the world’s first Volatility Levels™, Energy Saving Mode, Double Screen Mode and Unique Gamble Feature which are central to the company’s mobile and player-friendliness.

Head of Sales at Wazdan Andrzej Hyla says: “Wazdan is a key partner for operators and aggregators, therefore we decided to sponsor categories that are close to our heart. Our ‘Passion for Games’ is reflected in all we do, and that’s why we put our energy behind the Malta Gaming Awards. It’s not just a way of giving back, it’s our way of saying that we respect the industry that inspires us.”

Our goal is to always provide our customers with superior solutions that deliver standout value in the most competitive regulated territories, and I anticipate even greater success for both companies as the latest chapter in the Bethard story unfolds.”

Erik Scarp, CEO of Bethard, added: “Our partnership with SBTech has been a significant growth driver for the business across key markets, and I’m delighted we have agreed a long-term extension in line with our rapid expansion into a host of new and emerging territories.
