Aristocrat, Australia’s leading slots developer and a major power around the world, has announced that their unique On Demand platform for casino games will be launching in Europe in June and they have chosen Italy’s Casino di Venezia as the venue.
Donal Maguire, Aristocrat’s Sales and Marketing Director for Europe, commented on the launch, saying: “We are delighted that the world’s oldest casino, established in 1638, has shown such a pioneering vision to spearhead this new technology. It now becomes the first casino in Europe to install Aristocrat On Demand, with its ever expanding game library incorporating a broad cross-section of games from old favourites to the very latest titles, a third of which are not even available in the regular European catalogue.”
If you’ve never seen the On Demand platform before and you’re an Aristocrat fan then you’re definitely in for a treat as it features virtually every game that they have ever made and you can access some old favourites or the biggest and best new releases through a single machine. Indeed, many of the games in our thorough Aristocrat section here at Mr Gamez will be available for play, ranging from all-time classics like Queen of the Nile and Choy Sun Doa to lesser known but equally excellent games such as Pompeii and Big Ben. As noted in the commentary, there’ll even be some games that European players have never encountered before, ensuring that the likes of the entire Nile series with follow up games like King of the Nile and Love on the Nile will be fully suited to the new hardware.
The launch at Casino di Venezia will incorporate all manner of different titles across an initial installation of twenty machines. The managers at the casino will be able to decide on a cabinet by cabinet basis exactly which games appear, with the content being pre-loaded on their own servers. New releases can be added quicker than ever before, with the content being delivered across online platforms as soon as they are available, effectively bringing the casino up to speed with the biggest and best online operators in terms of release schedules.
The cabinets are more than capable of running any of Aristocrat’s games and players can look forward to everything from the Reel Power series to the Mega Pay and Legends ranges, with full functionality always on offer thanks to the unique touchscreen interface.
Stefano Silvestri, Gaming Director at Casino di Venezia, also commented on the launch, saying: “Our regular players have a great affinity for Aristocrat games. To be able to add more playing positions of these popular games at peak times with just the press of a few buttons is a win-win scenario. It also brings us the opportunity to call up specifically themed games for events and promotions. The thick client aspect is also important for minimising machine downtime, with gameplay able to continue even in the case of network interruptions.”
The last part of the comment is particularly crucial as the new machines only rely on a network connection when loading new content. Otherwise, game data is stored locally and can be called upon at any time with no problems.
Of course, if you’re in Europe, then you will be well aware that the chances are that Aristocrat slots are available online, with many of the games offered on the new cabinets already available. We’ve got a full selection here on the site, and we’ll show you the very best places to play with just as much choice as any land based casino! Even if there isn’t an online version of your chosen game or you happen to be in one of the blocked territories, it is no problem at all as we’ve also compiled the very best alternatives to each one, drawing on the gameplay, theme and features to identify the best online slots for any taste! Be sure to check them out in the Aristocrat slots section right here at Mr Gamez.
