Best New Slot Machine

Bally Technologies’ Skee-Ball is a five-reel, 40-line video slot that plays like a standard spinner, but its bonus feature sets it apart. Using a touchscreen interface, the player controls a little red ball on a digital mock-up of the longtime arcade favorite. Players win tickets for their rolls, then “redeem” them for prizes, which turn into credits. It’s a nostalgic look back using the latest in technology, and a glimpse into the future of (partially) skill-based slots.
