Best of Slots 2013

This year, 2013, for the 13th time, we published questionnaires asking readers of Strictly Slots to choose their favorites—the casinos with the best slot experience, and what they thought were the best slot and video poker games, broken into categories to reflect the diversity of the slot floor itself.
And, for the 13th time, our readers responded, which leads to this full report of the “Best of Slots,” according to those who know best: our readers.
This is one of the most important issues of Strictly Slots every year, not just for the readers, but for the casino operators who buy the slots and the slot manufacturers that develop them.

Casino operators, likewise, pay attention to player tastes when buying the slots. This issue tells them that and much more. It’s not what they think that drives the innovation to create new slot games. It’s what you think that matters.
Thanks to all of our readers for responding to the survey, and for making it possible for us to publish the most comprehensive snapshot anywhere of all that is great in the world of slots.
And the winners are:
