Here is the Shortlist for the Slot of the year award, sponsored by Table Trac, Inc.
  • Gaming Arts - Thor’s Thunder - Thor's Thunder is a beautifully designed game with robust, fast, dynamic and entertaining character-driven gameplay. This action-packed base game Cash on Reel instantly pays to player when Thor lands on the middle reel. There are up to 25 free games with Thor permanently fixed to the middle reel. These 4 levels of fast hitting jackpots are scaled by the player's bet, with a top award of 2000x the player's bet. Thor's Thunder is offered on the sleek VertX Grand cabinet. A variety of placement configurations are available including round 3-pods, 4-pods and back-to-back 4-packs, 6-packs, and 8-packs, triangular and rectangular 6-pods, and 2-pack and 3-pack placements. 
  • Eclipse Gaming Systems - Big Shake Neon - The Big Shake Neon slot game offers an unprecedented gameplay experience featuring an engaging arcade-style coin-pusher and perceived skill bonus that challenges and excites players. This 3-reel slot transforms the player experience as players take control of the coin wall chutes during the Rapid Fire Bonus to collect prizes. To add immersion, the player can choose their favorite soundtrack from three unique playlists to enjoy during gameplay on this '80s-themed game.
  • Aristocrat Gaming - Jackpot Carnival - Jackpot Carnival, which is a game originally released a few years ago, was brought back with new functions and features. It remained the top new premium game for 4 months. Jackpot Carnival, available on the Neptune Single Cabinet, is paired with Aristocrat’s player favorite titles Buffalo, Timberwolf, and Power of 88. The Clown features returns alongside an all new Hammer Bonus which replicates one of the test-your-strength hammer contraptions at carnivals.
  • IGT - Prosperity Link - IGT’s Prosperity Link is a high-performing MLP video slots game introduced in 2022 to global success, and consistently ranked in the top three on Eilers list of Top Indexing New Premium Games. The game integrates popular gameplay mechanics and achieved high scores in IGT’s extensive test bank program to deliver player excitement with multiple free games bonuses and the lock and respin bonus. Prosperity Link is available in four Asian-inspired titles packed with vibrant graphics.
  • Light & Wonder - Huff N’ More Puff - The chart-topping Huff N’ Puff franchise returned to huge success. With an added Wheel feature, Huff N’ More Puff gives players a gripping chance at multiple Free Games features, credit prizes, or one of the two progressives. The game’s fun aesthetic and thoughtful take on Hold & Spin mechanics have players flocking to it regularly. Huff N’ More Puff debuted in the #1 spot in the Top Core Game category.
  • Konami Gaming - All Aboard - Since the debut launch of All Aboard Dynamite Dash and All Aboard Piggy Pennies, Konami has released nearly a dozen different versions of All Aboard - adding more original base games, high-denomination editions, and even an All Aboard multi-game edition. The All Aboard game series has demonstrated exceptional player popularity which continues to grow to date.
  • Zitro - Mega King - Featured on the ultra-slim Allure Glare cabinet, Mega King is a multi-game progressive link offering 4 unique game titles, colorful themed graphics, and the popular bonus link that players love. Players can activate the “energy boost” feature, which transforms into a higher frequency of prizes and grants access to the bonus jackpot. Mega King is hugely successful across international markets and is a huge hit across LatAm. Hundreds of cabinets of the multi-game were installed in the past 12 months across Big Bola, Grupo Caliente, and Winpot venues in Mexico.
  • Bluberi - Devil’s Lock - The base game employs a five-by-three reel array, with 15 individual reels and 40 pay lines. The wild Devil symbol and his teasing laugh may appear anytime and unlock prizes and jackpots directly on reels. Any devil symbol landing on the reels can randomly unlock one of two “Pig Pots,” which each award six free games. Devil’s Lock is featured on Bluberi’s Novus Series b49 cabinet. 
  • Velvix - Forgotten Treasures - Featured on Velvix’s premium CurlX cabinet, Forgotten Treasures is one of the company’s most unconventional slot titles. At face value, Forgotten Treasures has the look of a traditional pirate-themed slot game. With 40 lines, the game sees players chase the title's single most exciting feature. The “free games” feature is activated by collecting five or more scatters, each containing a multiplier value listed on them. The player then gets to select the order the multipliers are awarded during the feature. This means the player can weigh all of the larger multipliers at the start of the free spins or decide to set the bigger action toward the end of the free game. For the first time, players are put in charge of their own destiny.
  • Everi - Combo Cash - Everi’s Combo Cash Series features two distinct base themes – Rockin’ Reels and Secret Treasures. Both themes introduce COMBO CA$H, a fun, new twist on the player-favorite Win What You See feature, which was made popular by Everi’s stepper games Cash Machine and Gold Standard Jackpots. In Combo Cash, players landing a “$” symbol in the base games will unlock the COMBO CA$H feature, which spins to award big prizes up to $20,500. The Combo Cash series is featured on Everi’s new Dynasty Vue cabinet.
