Aristocrat is set to move closer to the heart of London’s ICE show, relocating to a central position in ExCeL’s South Hall. Stand #S5-150 will offer visitors the opportunity to see an even broader range of the latest market-leading gaming content and innovative hardware solutions drawn from the Company’s extensive global portfolio, carefully selected for diverse markets across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Spearheading Aristocrat’s licensed collection will be Dragon Link™. This Arc™ Single-housed evolution of Lightning Link™ has been wowing players in Australia, the Americas and France, and is now set to roll out across Holland and other EMEA markets. On display will also be the unique Dragon Link Den 12-machine carousel.
Further Dragon Link upgrades for 2019 include a new family of games featuring a Big Symbols free games mechanic, as well as a range of base games with multi mid denominations for privée areas. Maintaining further support for the gaming world’s most popular Hold & Spin game series, new Lightning Link titles include Eyes of FortuneTM and Dragon’s RichesTM, featuring expanding wilds during free games.
On the back of tremendous success in North American casinos, the metamorphic Gold Stacks™ 88 Link becomes available in the new Helix™ XT portrait cabinet and welcomes two new unique base games, Prosperity Pig™ and Tiger Reign™ to its library.
Another highly innovative hardware concept, Helix™ Tower will see two new linked concepts added to its collection. Wonder 4 Spinning FortunesTM brings another of Aristocrat’s mega brands, Wonder 4TM, to the big screen. Linked for the first time, the renowned multi reel set game is boosted by strong legacy titles and a wheel feature delivering free games, super free games and jackpots. Also making an EMEA debut, Dragon Tower JackpotsTM is an Asian-themed game developed by the same studio that created the popular Mighty CashTM Big Money.
The flame55TM cabinet, with its distinctive 55-inch double-curved 4K portrait screen and eye-catching LED carousel and illuminated sign package, benefits from the addition of two more knockout themes offering further support to the recently released Game of ThronesTM Fire & Blood. Another HBO series blockbuster comes in the form of Warner Bros.’ WestworldTM, combining sci-fi desert adventures with a host of proven game mechanics. Celebrating 10 years of one of Aristocrat’s most iconic North American brands, BuffaloTM Diamond brings together progressive free spins, jackpot wheel, retriggers, multipliers and an all new reel matrix for the wildest Buffalo experience to date.
A mixture of licensed and proven proprietary brands also make up the range of new titles designed for the Arc™ Double platform, with The Big Lebowski™ Slot Game joining other newcomers 5 DragonsTM Grand and Wild Lepre’Coins™ Pot of Gold, the latter inspired by the hugely popular Extra Bonus Wilds™ game, Wild Lepre’Coins™.
One of Aristocrat’s most popular gaming operations titles on Verve™ hd, Tarzan™ Lord of the Jungle™ has now been upgraded and adapted for deployment on the Arc™ Single form factor. This mid-high denomination standalone progressive offers configurable multi-denom options along with an entertaining jackpot chase experience, powerful free games and wheel feature.
James Boje, Aristocrat Managing Director, EMEA, said: “Continuing our globally adopted theme ‘It’s all about what’s inside’, we will be sharing a stunning line-up of what’s next for gaming floors in 2019. More games will be on display than ever before, spanning all product segments. With a vast array of premium large format platforms introduced over the last 12 months, it’s vital that customers can see as much as possible of the output resulting from year-on-year investment in design and development.”
