Sonic the Hedgehog is a 1997 Sonic-themed slot machine game produced by JPM International. The graphics and music are taken from Sonic the Hedgehog. This includes the music for Green Hill Zone and the opening music for Sonic 1 and Sonic 2. The buttons allow the player to spin, bank, collect, and bet various amounts on the wheels.

AWP stands for "Amusement With Prizes", a popular type of slot machine in European arcades.

Sonic takes the game style immortalised in Rollercoaster to new heights, with all the authenticity of the worldwide video game to offer top entertainment to the player. The reel game uses nudges and bonuses to keep interaction high - strategy in the feature helps prevent an untimely end. Value for money in terms of frequency in the feature is unprecedented. This is the reason for its success, especially in arcades.
