With over 1,100 slots and live casino games released in 2023, there’s no way you could play ‘em all, which means some smokin’ good games have probably passed you by. In my last OJO Show of the year, I run down the top slots and live casino games released in the last 12 months including my games of the year, and my provider of the year.

It’s been an incredibly fertile year in the live dealer category, with games like Gonzo’s Treasure Map and Jumanji The Bonus Level Live breaking new ground, while Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack and Red Door Roulette take much loved games and make them even better.

Choosing standout games from the 1,000 or so new online slots released in 2023 is a different story, and I’m sure you’ll have your own view. Games like Massive Gold, Queen of the Pyramid Fire and Roses Joker will have their fans, and Rising Rewards has been another highlight for me.

But instead, I narrowed my Best Slot of 2023 down to 2 games, one from ELK Studios and one from Relax Gaming, that are hard to argue with. No spoiler this time – just listen to the show and see what you think!

Your fave games of 2023

We asked you for your hot take on the year’s best slot or table game, and we got some interesting replies! One of two old classics in there. Love that shoutout for bingo too. But from this totally unscientific research, it sounds like Breaking Bad has been the hit we knew it would be.

That’s it from me for 2023, a storming year for game development where Live Game Shows just got better and better, and slot studios produced some truly stunning efforts that will no doubt still be played in a year’s time.
