Aristocrat was named Land-Based Industry Supplier of the Year in the 2020 Global Gaming Awards. This was the second consecutive year Aristocrat was named Land Based Supplier, and it was part of a collection of awards the company won to kick off G2E 2020.

Aristocrat’s global land-based gaming business has a fresh new face.  Now known as Aristocrat Gaming, this new identity expresses all the vibrancy of their industry, and the energy and excitement of their market-leading gaming portfolios.

Launched in mid November 2020, Aristocrat Gaming’s bold new name and logo supported by fresh and innovative creative collateral and customer communications. 

Slot of the Year for its high-energy Dollar Storm

Aristocrat’s highly anticipated evolution of the industry’s best two products, Lightning Link and Dragon Link, is here. Dollar Storm rolls in at a lower cost and more rapid hitting MSP that will drive excitement with players. Inspired by Lightning Link and Dragon Link, it has a WYSIWYG jackpot structure and incorporates high denomination options with 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, 25c, $1, $2, and now $5! The forecast gets even better with next generation LED animating signage and sound.

In the surface Dollar Storm looks a lot like any other Lightning Link series game, but there’s a few distinct differences, most notably the addition of a Super Grand progressive.  Here the Super Grand jackpot, another linked jackpot that sits above the standard Grand in this game format.

If you land a Super Grand Chance ball as part of a hold and spin feature, you have a chance, proportional to your wager size, to win a Super Grand jackpot. If you don’t win, the ball will become a four-figure dollar amount: $1,000, $1,500, $2,000 or $2,500. So landing that symbol will never be a bad thing.

However, there has been a change to how various balls can drop as a result of this addition. The highest non-progressive prizes cannot appear at the same time as a Super Grand chance. So if a 250x or 200x credits ball appears, you cannot win a Super Grand chance, or vice versa, because only one of them can appear per hold and spin. This means the biggest of the balls cannot attract more of them.

Best Guest Health & Safety category for its IN THE CLEAR solution

At the GGB Gaming & Technology Awards, Aristocrat won gold in the Best Guest Health & Safety category for its IN THE CLEAR solution.  The company also won silver in the Best Slot category for its fast-riding Cash Express Luxury Line.

Prior to G2E, Aristocrat’s B2B Social Gaming and TrackIt for Tables were named to Casino Journal’s Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Product Awards for 2020. Additionally, Aristocrat’s Buffalo Chief and Crazy Rich Asians slot games were named to the “Top Slots of the New Model Year” list in “Frank Floor Talk” in CDC Gaming Reports.

According to Aristocrat Americas President Hector Fernandez “The world’s best products are created by the world’s best employees, and we are thrilled that the industry has so broadly recognized our teams’ efforts,” “Each piece of hardware, game, and customer experience solution we create is to help our customers entertain their guests, and we are honored to be recognized for bringing joy to life through the power of play.”

 Obviously we hope to see many new and fantastic games from Aristocrat in 2021 and more feathers to its cap.
