Wild Toro from Elk Takes Game Of The Year Honour

The Game of the Year category at the EGR Operators Awards is always one to watch, and this year, the award was even more highly anticipated because of the sheer quality of the games that have been released by various software developers in 2017.As perhaps something of a surprise to some, who may have assumed that the award would go to a software giant such as NetEnt or Microgaming, it was, in fact, Elk Studios who took home the online casino version of an Oscar, thanks to their excellent Wild Toro slot.Wild Toro from Elk Takes Game Of The Year Honour

Serious competition

This is no small win for Elk Studios, obviously, the prestigious nature of the award itself is huge, but it becomes even more impressive when you realise that, in order to win the award, they beat the likes of Microgaming’s epic Jurassic World, Quickspin’s stunning Sakura Fortune, the heavenly Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood from NetEnt, and the insanely popular Age of the Gods from Playtech as well as a host of other top-quality slots from the 13 strong shortlist.

About the slot

If you are yet to have tried Wild Toro (and, one assumes, there will be many people who are going to seek it out to try now after seeing the award result), this five-reel slot with 178 interconnecting paylines is based around a heroic bull and his battles with an evil matador.Wilds and walking wilds adorn the reels in the base game, while re-spins and free spins are also on offer to help create some big wins on this fun and colourful slot, that has one of the catchiest theme tunes in online casino history!This is a huge win for Elk Studios, and a surprise to many, but there is no doubt that the award is well deserved.
