International Game Technology and ReelPlay, in addition to the consistently performing Evolution and Light & Wonder, are the notable takeaways in June’s Eilers-Fantini Online Game Performance Report.

The form sees its Blackjack Poker and Pairs and Blackjack games sandwich L&W’s 88 Fortunes slot in the overall gaming charts for the months, with two of the aforementioned three titles also featuring on the podium on a gross gaming revenue basis. 

This sees the Blackjack table game take the gold with 4.9 per cent of total GGR with 88 Fortune’s 2.6 per cent scooping the bronze. Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette claimed silver with three per cent.

On a slots basis, Bonanza and Extra Chilli by the Evolution owned Big Time Gaming closed in second and third place, behind the aforementioned 88 Fortunes. IGT’s Blackjack Surrender was the biggest mover after surging from 333rd place to 21st.

Top Game Ranks – Slots

Rick Eckert, managing director of slot performance and analytics at Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, noted: “Today we published the Eilers-Fantini Online Game Performance Report – June ’22. This month we introduced the Top Games by GGR. Leading the ranks this month are IGT’s Blackjack, Evolution’s Live Dealer Roulette, Light & Wonder’s 88 Fortunes, Evolution’s Blackjack, and IGT’s Cleopatra. 

“These rankings are differentiated from our index ranks by weighting indexing by each online casino estimated GGR vs traditional indexing where all sites are equally weighted.  

“Additionally, games from Everi Holdings, AGS – American Gaming Systems, ReelPlay, and High 5 Games were all represented in the top 25.”

Furthermore, the latest iteration also features rankings based on the latest entry into the igaming scene across Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia.

On an overall basis, the 10,000 Wonders 10k Ways by ReelPlay and L&W’s Hurricane Horse Coin Combo slots finish first and third, and are split by Design Works Gaming’s Break the Bounty LuckyTap instant win title. DWG’s 10x Fortune closed the latest slots rankings in third.
