Quoted from DennisDodel:

These are all of the games listed on the IPDB that have slot machine reels.

Unfortunately that list is far from complete.
An early EM flipper pin with multiple slot reels on the PF was BLY Wild Wheels in 1966.

Quoted from Pinball-is-great:

This summary sheet of pinball milestones was being handed out at Texas Pinball Festival (or Houston Arcade Expo) last year or 2 yrs ago. I believe Mr. Dan Ferguson was handing out pinball info during his e-m pinball machine trouble shooting class.

A couple of possible errors in the list
GTB changed over to metal legs in mid 1956 with Auto Race, followed by Register and Flag Ship and Rainbow in 1956
Bally still continued to use wooden legs for all pins and bingos released in 1957. WMS did change over to metal legs in early 1957 with Arrowhead.
Also a little misleading when it states Williams increased the flipper size from 2 inch to present day 3 inches in 1968,
when in fact WMS Hayburners II in Aug 68 did experiment with 3 in flippers, but WMS continued to use 2 inch flippers on about 5 games in late 68 & early 69 until PostTime in April 1969 when they made a more complete switch to 3 inch flippers on all games there after. (albeit Suspense had both 2in and 3in flippers).
