Slots Temple Awards honour the movers and shakers in the industry, as voted for by the players

Leading free online slots platform Slots Temple has announced the winners of its inaugural Slots Temple Awards, with Pragmatic Play’s Big Bass Splash taking the prestigious ‘Game of the Year’ accolade.

The goal of the awards is to honour the most exciting, inventive games of the year, as voted by Slot Temple’s thriving community of bona fide slots fans. And Big Bass Splash, Pragmatic’s explosive, feature-rich sequel to the hit fishing game Big Bass Bonanza, took the top spot hook, line and sinker, with an extraordinary 23.2% of the vote. Honorable mentions go to two Relax Gaming titles, second-placed 4 Secret Pyramids and Money Train 3, in third.

Relax can console itself with the fact that more a third of slots fans voted it ‘Best Studio’, while its title TNT Tumble won the ‘Best Tournament Game’ award.

Slots Temple offers free-to-play slots tournaments for real-money prizes and has built up a highly engaged community of players that competes for leaderboard wins and bragging rights.

In short, they know a thing or two about slots, and Slots Temple players voted Virgin Games as ‘Best Casino’, praising the wealth of games on offer and its impressive welcome bonuses.

Players were also wowed by Big Time Gaming’s Millionaire Mega Rush, which won the Innovation Award for its highly inventive Mega Trail mechanic.

Fraser Linkleter, CMO at Slots Temple said: “Congratulations to all our winners and a special thank you to everyone who took part in the voting. It’s been an amazing year for slots, with so many studios out there really pushing the boundaries, creating games with stunning audiovisuals and so many innovative new features and mechanics. We wanted to honor them in the best way possible — by letting real slots fans have their say on the industry’s real standout performers this year.”
