It seems that Aristocrat are in the process of porting some of their land based casino slots into the online environment. I noticed yesterday that two of their games, Queen Of The Nile II and Zorro are now both available at Bet365 GamesÂ (see 2012 update below). And I’ve heard that Lucky 88 and Where’s The Gold are due at any time too. (Update, Feb 2013: Some 25 games from Aristocrat are now available to play online. Check out the full list here with details on where to play them).
Both of these games are true to the land-based originals. Aristocrat slots have a certain old-skool charm about them and they are instantly recognisable by the uniue 10-J-Q-K-A symbology they use along with the sounds and that familiar bell when the bonus feature triggers.
Aristocrat are following in the footsteps of IGT andÂ WMS and with Novomatic recently launching their popular land casino slot machine, Book Of Ra,Â it was only a matter of time before Aristocrat followed suit. I would expect to see a whole raft of Aristocrat slots follow suit including (hopefully) the very popular 50 Lions / 100 Lions slot. I wouldn’t be surprised if they bought the 50 Dragons slot online too as it’s very popular with Asian gamblers alledgedly. It’s all over Macau anyway as I can testify from my last visit there!
Update Feb 2012: Aristocrat now have 10 slot machines online, some of which are at the aforementioned Bet365 Games and others (including 50 Lions and 5 Dragons) at Money GamingÂ and Mecca Bingo. They plan to have 30 slots online by the end of 2012 at these websites and through other deals.
