The EGR Operator Awards are the most popular and the most prestigious in the industry. The awards for 2017 were announced on October 26 at a glittering function held at Grosvenor House in London. There are several categories of awards including for the Casino Operator of the Year and Mobile Casino Product of the Year.

However, the most popular award is for the Game of the Year. This award recognises the game studio or operator that has produced the stand-alone game that has made the biggest impact during the year. For 2017 the Game of the Year award went to Elk Studios for the online slot game Wild Toro. You can play this game at reputed online casinos like InterCasino. Elk Studios prevented NetEnt from completing a hat trick. NetEnt had won the award for Spinata Grande in 2015 and Guns N Roses in 2016.

Wild Toro is a 5x4 video slot with 178 paylines. The high paying symbols are exquisitely crafted and include rose, orange with dagger and hand fan. The low paying symbols are gold silver and bronze coins. The top payout is 1000 times the line bet for five roses on an active payline. The symbols can appear stacked on the reels leading to multiple winning combinations in the same spin. The game logo is the wild symbol. It, however, does not substitute for the two special symbols.

The Toro is a walking wild symbol. If it lands on the reels in the same spin as a Matador, then it will move horizontally and or vertically destroying all Matador Symbols. It will leave in its trail regular wild symbols. Payouts will be awarded after all Matador symbols are eliminated. The Matador can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. Three Matador symbols trigger the Matador Respins Challenge. You are awarded 3 respins to start with. Matador symbols are sticky during the respins and each additional symbol adds one respin. The respins can end prematurely if Toro appears on the reels.

Wild Toro faced stiff competition from several other fantastic slot games. The Age of the Gods series from Playtech that replaced the Marvel superhero slots was a strong contender. The live casino game Dream Catcher from Evolution Gaming has brought something new for live casino players. NetEnt was attempting for its third successive win in this category with Red Riding Hood: Fairytale Legends. The other nominees included Jurassic World from Microgaming, Queen of Gold from Pragmatic Play and Sakura Fortune from Quickspin.
