The awards are out, so no more guessing! But you have some good point here I would like to comment.The other thing I really like about 3Dice is the no affiliate program. It stands to reason without having to pay affiliates that 25% to 35% commission.....that money gets kicked back to players, in one form or another. Overall, a really good business model.
Worst Software - It's a tossup for me between Rival and TopGame.
Best New Game This Year - Toss up for me between the Stickshifter slot at 3Dice and Hellboy. Love em both. Stickshifter is completely original and Hellboy is just a really cool game IMO.
That's all I can think of for now....really looking forward to Bryan's choices. It's always a great read.
The no affiliates strategy from 3Dice is interesting and very beneficial.
Also I have never received any affiliate spam promoting 3Dice.
But I guess their unique software gives them that competition advantage
compared to MG casino #143.
I like Rival software, and it seems your problems are with casino managers and not the software provider?
Unfortunately there was no best game award this year. I would also have voted
for Hellboy IF they had replaced the boring 'picking' feature with something more interesting. So Stickshifter would have been my pick.
