Once again, the SlotsWise Gaming Awards will be used to recognise and celebrate pokies and developers that delivered the highest standards possible in the industry, while revolutionising it with unique game mechanics and brand-new features that have never been used before. The entertainment factor is, needless to say, a crucial criterion when choosing all the nominees that could win a prestigious SlotsWise Gaming Award in 2022.

SlotsWise has put its in-house team of experienced pokie gurus to serious work. Together, they looked into over 700 fresh pokies from 30 different software providers and gaming studios worldwide, reviewing the games and hand-picking the very best of them as nominees for important categories. Players are not invited to give their own opinion on which games and gaming studios should win the exciting awards.

Eleven Pokies Categories

The SlotsWise Awards cover 11 different categories. The game or provider that gets the most votes will be crowned a winner in the category in which they are nominated. All winners will be officially announced on December 19. TrueBlue Casino has its say here.
