Aristocrat Online Casinos

aristocrat technology softwareAristocrat Technologies Inc. is the online division of Aristocrat Leisure, an Australian slot machine manufacturer based in Sydney. Aristocrat was founded by Len Ainsworth in 1955, when legal gambling was done in poker clubs. Aristocrat pokies (slot machines in Australia) were the dominant gaming machines in Australia until the 1990s, when IGT Australia began to make inroads. In the 90s, Len Ainsworth was diagnosed with cancer and retired to let his children run the company. When the diagnosis proved wrong, he founded Ainsworth Gaming Technology (AGT), which remains a rival of Aristocrat to this day.

Through aggressive acquisitions and strategic partnerships, new Aristocrat CEO Jamie O’Dell has made the company a global competitor, with major assets in the online, mobile, tribal, and social gaming niches. This article discusses Aristocrat Technologies, the online and mobile gaming wing of the company. As of 2016, Aristocrat is licensed in over 200 jurisdictions and operates in 90 countries worldwide.

Players might be frustrated that they cannot find Aristocrat pokies online. That’s because the company works through partnerships and subsidiaries, so their games are often listed as belonging to those companies. The Game Account Network and NYX Gaming are two examples of such partnerships.

Game Account Network (GAN) Partnership

In 2011, Aristocrat signed a deal with Game Account Network (GAN) for online distribution. Game Account Network is London-based and focuses on person-to-person games of skill. It is active in over 130 countries and has licenses in most European countries which allow online gaming.

GAN software is used in 18 sites, so players can search for Aristocrat Online Casino games on any of the sites below. Most of these sites cater to Italian gamblers, though some are active in Germany. One is active in the licensed New Jersey online gambling market.

NYX Gaming Partnership

In 2013, Aristocrat signed a similar deal with NYX Gaming, a developer based in Stockholm, Sweden. NYX Gaming received the right to distribute 8 video slots to online and mobile casinos, so you’ll find a good amount of Aristocrat online pokies in casinos using NYX Gaming software.

Aristocrat Leisure Timeline

Aristocrat Leisure began 63 years ago, so it has a long and storied history. Below is a timeline of the company, along with its greatest innovations and achievements.

1953 Aristocrat is founded.
1958 Aristocrat releases two online pokies, Slimline and Sheerline, which were the first slots with fully lit reels and scorecards.
1960s Aristocrat began to expand into the European gaming market.
1983 In 1982 and 1983, the virtual reel was invented. This had a profound effect on electronic gaming machines (EGMs), because it dispensed with clunky (electric-powered) mechanical reels and allowed for much bigger payouts.

1987 Aristocrat produces Microstar II, the first spinning reel video machine.

1996 Aristocrat was approved for operations in South Africa. Offices were opened in Peru and Colombia, too.
2000 The company was approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission, allowing Aristocrat to begin operations in Las Vegas. It created Casino Data Systems (CDS) for its US operations.
2003 Aristocrat debuts the first of its popular 50-Line poker machines, 50 Lions. This would be a huge success for the company.
2005 Aristocrat opens offices in Macau.
2005 Buys a portion of PokerTek Inc, the U.S. company which invented PokerPro for table poker.
2009 Facing struggles due to the Global Recession of 2008-09, Jamie Odell is appointed the new CEO. He focuses on a “Play-to-Win” strategy for growth.
2013 Aristocrat acquires Product Madness for its online, mobile, and software applications niches. See the Aristocrat Mobile Software Review to learn about Product Madness and Heart of Vegas.
2014 Aristocrat bought Video Game Technologies (VGT) for $1.3 billion, which develops Class II gaming machines. The VGT purchase allowed Aristocrat to expand into Native American tribal casinos in North America.
2015 Aristocrat partnered with Chinese designer International Game Systems (IGS) to produce the FaFaFa mobile app technology.
