42 views 6 minutes read

In the Eilers-Fantini report for March, new-ranked games by High 5 Games or White Hat Studios dominated the list of top-ranking titles.

The top three games in terms of gross gaming revenues remained the same from February. This was also true for the charts that show the suppliers, with Games Global closely competing against the big three – Evo, IGT, and Light & Wonder.

The research firm’s newly-launched Canadian Report continues to grow. It reveals a close race between Play for the top supplier spot and IGT.

US Performance

The Eilers/Fantini March breakdown begins with the GGR top 10 chart. Almost all of the games that made up last month’s list were in the same order, but in different places.

IGT Blackjack, and Cash Eruption swapped places on the top chart in March. Cash Eruption took the top spot with a share of 2.71 percent of GGR. Blackjack was second with 2.45 percent.

Anaxi, the online version of Buffalo continued to be a high-performer. It achieved consecutive third places with 1.89% of GGR.

The only other game that broke into the Top 10 was Games Global’s Fire and Rosesjoker, which took the fourth spot with 1.18 percent of GGR. IGT Cleopatra climbed from seventh to fifth place in February.

Slots dominated the list of the 25 best-performing games, accounting for 16 of them. The rest included five titles from live casino, 3 table games, and 1 video poker game.

Cash Eruption is ranked second, and IGT Blackjack remains in the top spot.

The rest of the top 5 saw a slight shift, Evolution’s Live Dealer Speed Baccarat leapfrogged AGS to claim the third position, while the latter settled for the fourth.

Live Dealer Lightning Roulette by Evolution climbed from sixth place to fifth, as Blazing Bison Gold Blitz of Games Global fell from fifth to 18th position.

The games by GGR chart also showed that this title was a big loser. It had fallen from 4th to 10th position with a GGR drop of 1.36 to 0.92 percent.

The charts for slots show that IGT Cash Eruption remained at the top, followed by AGS Capital Gains, and 88 fortunes, from Light & Wonder, rose to take third place, thanks to a drop in Blazing Bison Gold Blitz from third place to tenth.

The rest of the five spots were occupied by Jin Ji Xi Endless treasure, which climbed from fourth to third, and IGT’s Cleopatra, which jumped ten positions from fifteen to five.

The number of studios represented in March dropped slightly. While 12 companies were present on the February top 25 slot chart, only 11 appeared this month, including High 5 Games, Playtech Reel Play Greentube, and White Hat Studios.

The top two games in the latest game ranking are Anaxi’s Buffalo Gold Collection, and AGS Platinum 8x8x8x, in the first and second places, respectively.

IGT’s new rankings for Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Double Red Hot Sevens have taken the bronze medal, while Games Global’s Gold Blitz Fishin Pots of Gold has dropped to fourth place.

The top 5 was rounded off by High 5 Games’ latest East Asian slot, 88 Drums. This finished ahead of White Hat Studios, branded Peaky Blinders Jackpot Royale.

Slots dominated the charts for the second consecutive month. All 25 of the games in the chart were slot games.

Evolution topped the charts as usual with 19.5% of GGR. IGT, Light & Wonder and their respective sports ranked second and third, respectively, with 17.6 and 14.6%.

Games Global, which remained fourth, gained ground on the three major suppliers. Its share of GGR rose from 9.7 percent in February to 9.9 percent.

In contrast, IGT and Light & Wonder have 86 percent slots while Evolution has 85.6 percent slots.

Slots remained dominant when examining the overall games, gaining a percentage of 91.6. Table games, on the other hand, only accounted for 3.5 percent.
