Streamers, game studios & operators – there’s a Slot Tournament happening at the CasinoBeats Summit and it’s going to be epic.
The CasinoBeats Summit has always been the go-to event for everything casino-related. Last year, we put a greater emphasis on casino streamers, recognising their vital role in the industry. This year, our conference team has decided to take it a step further by transforming this concept into an exciting slot tournament.

What sparked the idea for a Slot Tournament?
To sum it up, it’s a process involving three key parties, each reaping different benefits.
→ What better way to explore and test new titles than by letting the pros handle it? That’s exactly what’s happening at CasinoBeats Summit, where a selection of top casino streamers will be playing various new games, set to be released exclusively at the Summit. They’ll showcase these games to their network of players, providing insightful discussions on the advantages, disadvantages, and their overall thoughts on each game.
→ This is where the game studios come in. In a market where multiple new slot games get released every month, standing out is key. The Slot Tournament at CasinoBeats Summit presents an opportunity for the studios to spotlight their latest creations. By debuting their games at the Summit, they can leverage top streamers to introduce these games not only to a wide audience but also to the attending operators, effectively doing the heavy lifting for them.
→ The benefits extend to operators as well. In a market flooded with slot offerings, choosing the right ones for their player base can be daunting and time-intensive. By attending the CasinoBeats Summit operators can streamline this process. They can send their Casino or Product Managers to follow the slot tournament, making it easier to identify which new titles are most suited to their players’ preferences and needs.
- The STREAMERS who participate in the Slot Tournament get to show off their skills not just to fans, but to big game studios, operators, and those major affiliates who might be scouting for new talent. This is their chance to land some sweet deals.
- The GAME STUDIOS that are ready to launch their latest game with a real splash can do so by teaming up with these streamers. The streamers will introduce these cool new games to their followers and also catch the eye of operators looking to buy.
- And here’s the deal for OPERATORS – this whole setup makes their life a whole lot easier. They get to sit back, watch these streamers do their thing, and figure out which game is going to be the next big hit for them.
Where & When?
There will be a dedicated stage at the Networking Lounge on the exhibition floor at the InterContinental Hotel. The tournament will run across the two main Summit days (May 22-23).
Natalie Lees, Senior Conference Producer at SBC:
“If you’re a streamer eager to showcase your talent not just to your followers but also to prospective collaborators, we invite you to join us. We’re building a community for streamers ready to unleash their potential; expect a gathering of numerous industry players, making our Slot Tournament the perfect stage for you to shine.
“Moreover, you’ll have the chance to be among the first to explore and share new game releases with your audience, who, as we know, are always on the lookout for the next big thing.
“If you’re interested in this opportunity or know someone who might be, please get in touch. Let’s come together to amplify our presence and make a stronger impact at industry events.”

- For Streamers: A Chance to Get Recognised at the Game Developer Awards
The participating casino streamers are also invited to apply for one/or more of the Game Developer Awards categories, specifically designed to celebrate the best streamers. In the past, we’ve only had the ‘Streamer of the Year’ category, but starting this year, to mark the increased presence of streamers at the CasinoBeats Summit, we’re excited to add two more categories to the mix:
- Next-Gen Streamer of the Year (celebrating up-and-coming casino streamers)
- Responsible Streamer of the Year (dedicated to celebrating those casino streamers who demonstrate a positive impact on the casino gaming industry)
Winning an award like this is a testament to the quality of the steamer that you are, so please make sure to enter here.
- For Game Studios: A Chance to be Voted at the Studio Behind the Best New Release
Apart from streaming your titles for two days, at the end of the second conference day, the participating streamers will have the opportunity to vote for the best new release. This means that as a game studio, if your slot impresses the real pros, you could celebrate the release in the best possible way – by winning an award. The winner will be crowned at the Game Developer Awards, and the result depends SOLELY on the votes of the streamers, so there’s no need for separate entry.
