ank is one of the UK’s largest land-based casino & bingo hall operators with a successful online gaming business across multiple branded websites. Rank Group also operates a number of land-based bingo clubs in Spain through Top Rank España.
Rank has launched online the first of Aristocrat’s market-leading online slot games, ‘50 Lions’, which is the first of several games being developed and distributed by GameAccount Network in partnership with Aristocrat. Certified as being fully AGCC compliant, the online game ‘50 Lions’ relies on Aristocrat’s land-based math’s models optimised for online play, graphical and audio assets to re-create exactly the compelling land-based slot game experience for a new generation of players. Featuring auto-spins, manual bash buttons and pixel-perfect game play, the online version of ‘50 Lions’ offers online players unique new functionality unavailable in land-based casinos.
Dermot Smurfit, GameAccount Network Managing Director commented, “This collaboration has empowered Aristocrat to play a strong role in the development process, ensuring their compelling land-based slots games are brought online to their required quality levels. Through development of the Aristocrat slots content into the GameAccount Network Internet Gaming System, we can act as a single point of distribution onto gaming websites licensed in Alderney, Gibraltar and (in due course) in Italy’s burgeoning online Casino Games market.”
“GameAccount has developed an innovative approach to re-creating land-based casino slot games online. I’m confident the high quality Aristocrat product proposition will find a ready audience online.” said Julian Graham-Rack, International Director for Rank Interactive.
Gillian Findlay, Aristocrat’s GM for Online Gaming commented, “We are pleased that Rank’s customers will have access to our classic slot games. The first of these, ‘50 Lions’ is an iconic gaming brand, with proven performance in land-based casinos around the world, which has been enhanced for online play. This is the first of a number of the world's greatest casino slot games that we’ll be bringing to online players”.
