Aristocrat Leisure Limited

Aristocrat Logo

Aristocrat Leisure Limited is one of the two largest
manufacturers and designers of slot machines in the world.
They’ve been releasing games since the early 1950s, and their
refusal to settle for the status quo has led to numerous
industry awards, legions of devoted fans, and a staggering
number of cash payouts.

No matter where you travel in the word, there’s a good chance
that you’ll come across one of their products. So we start this
page with a look at how where their global presence stretches
too. We then cover their American presence in detail. This
includes a list of states where they aren’t operational due to
legal restrictions, and information on several of their most
popular games found in American casinos. We’ve explained how
their offerings vary in different regions too.

Also on this page is some background information on the
company, including a list of the current Board of Directors, and
details on the mobile versions of their games.

Aristocrat’s Global Presence

According to their official site, Aristocrat has a
significant presence in each of the following regions.


Following the 1999 purchase of ALI Gaming Solutions,
Aristocrat Africa came into existence. In less than two decades,
they’ve grown to capture the largest share of the South African
video market.


Based in Las Vegas, Aristocrat Technologies Inc. is
responsible for designing, manufacturing, marketing, and selling
games to the North American and Latin American market.

Australia and New Zealand

This makes sense considering that Aristocrat is an Australian
company, and their global headquarters are located in the Sydney
suburb of North Ryde. They’ve been traded on the Australian
Stock Exchange since 1996.

Asia Pacific

Based in Macau, this branch of the company is responsible for
creating new games for the Asian market, as well as dealing with
casinos and customers from Japan to Macau.


Aristocrat Online provides new content and old favorites to
online and mobile players. Aristocrat Lotteries supplies
interactive video terminals for operators.


Based in the New Delhi suburb of Noida since 2010, the Indian
Development Centre focuses on research and development to
provide land-based and online games to customers around the

States, you’ll find plenty of land-based locations to enjoy the
latest releases from Aristocrat.

following states (according to data provided by the official
Aristocrat U.S. homepage):

  • Hawaii
  • Washington
  • Utah
  • Texas
  • Nebraska
  • Montana
  • Kentucky

Aristocrat Slots for American Players

If you find yourself inside an American casino, there’s a
good chance that one or more Aristocrat slots are within walking
distance. In order to make your search easier, we’ve put
together this list of some of the titles available to U.S.


The 2012 comedy introduced us to a talking teddy bear
who’s rude and crude, and the slot adaption manages to capture
its irreverent charm while offering up a number of ways to walk
away with cash. The title character makes an appearance about
every 14 spins, and his arrival includes additional bonus
symbols, wild reels, multipliers, and free credits. The base
game has six features to enjoy, and they’re packed with clips
and quotes from the film. Thanks to nine bonus games and the
spinning Wonder Wheels, you’ll also have a good chance at
winning one of the progressive jackpots.

Game of Thrones

While this adaptation doesn’t contain the
graphic violence and gratuitous nudity that the HBO series is
known for, it still manages to entertain thanks to dramatic
music, epic battle scenes, and, of course, dragons. Travel north
into Winterfell for a chance to win free spins and watch the
reels grow to 134 paylines. Choose a dragon egg to receive a
bonus multiplier on subsequent spins. Fight the Battle of
Blackwater Bay to unlock free games on a new set of reels. In
addition to clips and characters from the show, the player is
given the chance to walk away with a progressive jackpot that
would make even a Lannister jealous.

A Christmas Story

This slot is an adaption of the 1983
holiday classic about cute little Ralphie and his quest to get a
Red Ryder air rifle for Christmas. Aristocrat has done a
wonderful job of transforming the film into game form, and an
almost dizzying array of elements from the movie have been
included. Watch Ralphie’s dad contend with the furnace or
weather an assault from the Bumpus hounds. Meanwhile, our young
hero gets dressed up in a pink bunny suit, takes on Black Bart
and his marauders, and even gets his mouth washed out with soap.
Each of these elements includes some new way to win, including
wilds, expanding reels, free spins, and multiple progressive

Britney Spears

The blonde songstress has been entertaining
listeners for over 15 years, and now she’s brought her concert
to the casino floor. As you attempt to win a single site
progressive jackpot that’s worth at least $10,000, the
Grammy-winning performer will strut her stuff in video clips and
sing hits such as “Toxic,” “Hit Me Baby One More Time,” and
“Oops I Did It Again.” In addition to two base game features,
the game includes four bonus features such as “Toxic Picks” and
the “Baby One More Time” wheel bonus.

Batman Classic

In the 1960s, Adam West and Burt
Ward made a splash in the corny TV sendup of the comics
featuring Batman and Robin. Now their brand of campy fun has
come to the casino floor, thanks to a 25-payline slot with a
maximum wager of 250 credits. Enjoy clips from the show and the
memorable theme music, all while contending with comical
villains such as Riddler, Catwoman, and Joker. Denominations
range from a penny to five cents, and this entitles you to a
dedicated wheel, bonus wheel, and even a series of thrilling
mini-games. Kapow!

Superman the Movie

Based on the 1978 Christopher Reeve
superhero movie, this game allows players to wager up to 250
credits in denominations of one, two, or five cents. Images of
Gene Hackman (Lex Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) flank
Reeve about the main screen, and these are interspersed with a
trio of “wonder wheels” that can be activated for greater
winnings. Wild symbols can turn up at any time, and the five
progressive jackpots offer payouts that are out of this world.
As an added touch, each seat is emblazoned with Superman’s cape,
so you’ll look like a costumed crimefighter when you’re sitting
down to play.

The Big Bang Theory

Based on the popular TV show about a
bunch of nerds and one really hot blonde, The Big Bang Theory
features all your favorite characters from Penny to Raj. No
matter what the time or wager, there’s always a chance of
triggering one of ten mystery bonuses. A series of big bonus
wheels always seem to be spinning, and there are unique features
like the Friendship Paradigm, the Large Hofstadter Collision,
Koothrappali Scavenger Vortex, and Mystic Warlords of Ka’a.

The Walking Dead

Named Casino Product of the Year in 2014
by the Global Gaming Award, this slot is based on the hit AMC
show about a zombie apocalypse and those who must contend with
both the living and the dead to survive. Includes three base
game features, reel growth, wild symbols, three bonus features,
all your favorite characters, and lots and lots of zombies.

The Rolling Stones

If you enjoy classic rock ‘n roll, then
you’ll be tapping your foot the whole time this game is
underway. Featuring the legendary British band, the game calls
on players to sit in an immersive iChair and witness the sights
and sounds of Mick Jagger and company. Four interactive bonus
features include Steel Wheels, World Tour Picks, Band Member
Bonus, and Start Me Up free games. The game doesn’t
include all of their many hits, but it does have enough to make
this one of the most rockin’ games on the casino floor.

Can De Paris

Set in Paris and featuring just a touch of
naughtiness, this game features expanding reels than can
increase the screen up to 500 paylines. Win multiple jackpots
during the same feature with three bonus features, and the
four-level progressive allows players to win a series of
impressive cash prizes. My favorite is the Can Can High Kick
Bonus, in which beautiful dancing girls appear, kick the reel
area to greater heights, and change one to four reels into wilds
in the process.

Tarzan of the Apes

Feel the excitement and danger of the
jungle in this innovative game from Aristocrat. Two base game
features include the Stampede Remix and Tarzan Wild Swing. The
Tarzan Wheel Bonus offers a chance to win progressives, credits,
or two additional features. Watch Tarzan battle gorillas or
leopards on his quest to find a city of gold, and, of course,
you’ll be able to hear his famous jungle yell.

Tarzan and Jane

Tarzan and Jane – Love is in the air in this sequel to Tarzan
of the Apes, and you’ll have a chance at a $100,000 top prize
just for risking 150 credits. Players get to oversee two sets of
reels, one named for Tarzan and the other for Jane Porter. Eight
bonus features are guaranteed to hit at a higher-than-average
frequency, and there are also two bonus wheels, a four-level
progressive, and an exciting wild play feature.


Superman – The Man of Steel takes on Lex Luthor in this story
ripped straight from the pages of the comics. Recognizable
elements such as kryptonite and Lois Lane show up on the reels,
and the size of your wager can range from 50 to 2500 credits. If
you choose the maximum level of risk, the game features Lex
Luthor as the main character and offers a top payout of $2.5
million. In addition, there are expanding wilds, free games, and
expanding reels.

Dragons on the Lake

Dragons on the Lake – Created with a definite Chinese theme,
this slot challenges players to head out on the lake to compete
in a race. You’ll be piloting a craft that looks like a dragon,
and capturing flags along the way allows you to move up to a
higher level of progressive jackpot. Get three dragon symbols on
the base game to trigger a special feature, and players even
have the ability to choose the number of free games (which
determines the volatility level).

Let’s Make a Deal

Based on the hit CBS game show hosted by
Wayne Brady, this slot delivers the same action without all the
annoying commercials. Seats feature surround sound and rumbling
effects during specific times of the game, and there’s a base
jackpot worth $250,000. Thanks to the five-level progressive,
however, the winnings can go even higher. Base games include
“Wild Wayne Bonus” and “Wild Box Multiplier,” and there are a
total of eight to enjoy.

Buffalo Stampede

Buffalo Stampede – Part of the Buffalo game series, this
five-reel slot improves on the original by offering a two-level
progressive jackpot, expanding reels, free games, and an
innovative betting structure. The video scenes featuring a
massive herd of stampeding bison are especially impressive.

Aristocrat in the Asia Pacific Market

While some slot machine companies offer the same games across
the world, Aristocrat long ago figured out that customer
preferences tend to differ by nation. That’s why their catalogue
is always expanding, and games found in one corner of the globe
may be substantially differ from another locale.

As an example, take a look at a few of the popular titles available for the Asia Pacific market:

  • 50 Dragons Deluxe
  • Fortune King Deluxe
  • 5 Koi Legends
  • King’s Dynasty
  • Jade Mountain
  • White Tiger

While all the games offered in this part of the world aren’t
patterned around Asian beliefs and legends, they do play a
significant role. This is just further evidence of Aristocrat’s
commitment to meeting customer needs and being savvy enough to
recognize cultural differences.
