Del Lago Resort & Casino in Seneca County received a handful of top honors in a gaming magazine's annual reader survey. 

Strictly Slots, a magazine founded in 1998 that focuses on slot machines and video poker games, announced that del Lago won four first place awards in its 17th annual "Best of Slots" survey. 

Del Lago won for best reel slots, best 50-cent slots, best high-end slot area and best comps, according to the magazine. 

The casino also received honorable mentions in 11 categories, including best overall casino, friendliest casino and casino where you feel luckiest. The casino's Players Club also earned recognition in the best slot club category. 

Jeff Babinski, executive vice president and general manager of del Lago Resort & Casino, noted that the awards were based on feedback received from the magazine's readers. 

"In less than one year our nearly 2,000 slots have proven to be a fan favorite as we truly appreciate the praise from our guests and Strictly Slots magazine," Babinski said. "We continually listen to our guests' requests and ensure that we offer the latest and greatest in slots and we are thrilled that they recognize our efforts." 

Del Lago opened Feb. 1 with 2,001 slot machines. In the months that followed, the casino reduced the number of slot machines to provide more space for table games. 

According to del Lago's latest report filed to the state Gaming Commission, the casino has 1,956 slot machines and 99 table games.
