|GameAccount, the world's largest provider of networked person-to-person (P2P) games, achieved the accolade of 'Innovation of the Year' at the 2006 eGaming Review Awards.|
The award is a major achievement considering the presence of gaming giants Blue Square, Extrabet and Gala Coral as the other nominees for the prestigious title.
Dave McDowell, co-founder and Chief Operations Officer of GameAccount picked up the honour, awarded for their skill-based duplicate blackjack tournaments.
Dave McDowell, said, 'This product suite deserved this recognition from our peers and proves that we can successfully launch one-of-a-kind profitable products that are instantly relevant to casino players worldwide. Everybody knows how to play Blackjack and everybody knows that over time the house will always beat you. GameAccount Blackjack is a sophisticated product tailor-made for hi-rolling veterans and new players alike, offering major money-making opportunities in our networked tournaments.'
Kevin Dale, GameAccount CEO, said, 'GameAccount set out to offer the eGaming market something new and refreshing. Players tired of the house edge in casino blackjack can now be retained or re-activated with the fundamental and compelling value proposition: play blackjack against other players, not the house.'
