ajor Viridian releases will include: Bank Buster, Aristocrat’s third Gen 7-dedicated Hyperlink boasting six bonus features and a four-level jackpot; Sky Heroes, a new XTreme Mystery theme resplendent with a new range of signage; and the new Double Standalone Progressive bonus game, Banana King.
A further 15 games are being introduced across the Viridian range at IGE, catering for a multitude of titles including Power Pay, Reel Power and 50, 100 and Multi Line. Aristocrat’s XCite library also gets a boost with nine new games added across the portfolio, including the Double Standalone Progessive Mr WOO Moonlight Market, featuring a two-level jackpot and bonus features.
Aristocrat’s commitment to developing games tailored to the specific needs of individual jurisdictions will be even more apparent than in previous years with a number of models aimed at Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom making their debuts, alongside Series 3, which has been gaining momentum in several territories, especially in south east Europe.
Following the successful London Show debut of Aristocrat Europe’s sister company in January 2008, Aristocrat Technologies Africa will have an enhanced presence this time around, introducing four new LPMs for the South African market, as well as the latest Smart card technology developed by its own R&D division established last July.
Looking ahead to IGE ’09, Daniel Lindsay, General Manager – Sales & Marketing Europe, said "Aristocrat began 2008 by launching one of the most exciting innovations in years. On the back of this, our development team has spent the last 12 months building an extensive library of world class games not only for Viridian, but also for the ever popular XCite range, as well as territory specific models.” He continued: "Aristocrat is the world’s second biggest producer of casino slot machines, with an unsurpassed level of expertise in delivering quality games with reliable performance. We remain committed to working closely with our customers to ensure that their players are kept entertained with new, exciting and vibrant game content. To that end visitors to our IGE stand will be spoilt for choice.”
Stand 3410 will also be the IGE home of PokerPro, PokerTek’s market-leading fully electronic poker table distributed exclusively by Aristocrat outside of North America, as well as ACE Interactive, which will be demonstrating TruServ, its new true Server Based Gaming (SBG) system on both the Viridian platform as well as its new Indago iVT cabinet.
