Aristocrat Slots Online

If you've ever been to Australia and played a "pokie" (that's Australian for slot machines) you'll probably have slipped a few dollar coins into the slot of an Aristocrat machine.

Aristocrat have been around for decades, and while they've branched out into online slots and Vegas casinos of late, they will always be associated with the Aussie market.

Their portfolio is packed with interesting games, albeit titles that appeal to fans of classic-style slots mainly, and new games continue to come on the market.

About Aristocrat

Aristocrat began life making gaming machines for pubs around Australia during the 1950s. Len Ainsworth took full advantage of relaxed gambling laws in the country (slots were legalised in new South Wales in 1956) that allowed him to expand his machines around Oz.

The Clubman was released in 1956, a mechanical 'pokie' that shaped the way US slot machines would be produced.

Then, in 1964, Aristocrat entered the US market with machines in Nevada casinos and developed - a year later - the first video poker game with electronic parts.

Pokie machines are only a little part of the Sydney-based firm's output, however, with Aristocrat also producing industry-leading electronic roulette tables and network systems.

With the online casino boom beginning in earnest, Aristocrat moved into online slots, but by this point founder Len Ainsworth had departed the firm to start his own rival company - wait for it, Ainsworth.

In July 2014, the Aussie giant increased its already-impressive US machines output by acquiring Video Gaming Technologies for a reported $1.28 billion.

With the buy-out, the Sydney-based player tripled its business in that part of the world, with the firm's slot machines presence growing from 8,200 to 28,400 in North America alone.

It wasn't the firm's first foray into foreign investment, however, as a $180 million acquisition of Casino Data Systems in 2001 and moves into Japan and Russia followed. With the latest buyout, the world's second-biggest gaming manufacturer behind IGT got a little bit bigger.

Despite a fall in profits Down Under, Aristocrat continues to be the dominant force in Oz, accounting for half the number of pokie machines in the country.
