The opening of these two new slot areas – filled with games Win-River players love – is a fantastic way to start our 28th anniversary celebration."

Here’s to 28 more years of fun!" said Jon Hanlin, Aristocrat’s senior vice president of commercial strategy and business analytics.  

Lightning Link and Dragon Link are global sensations, and their popularity led Aristocrat to create the Lounge and Den concept, where players can easily enjoy a high concentration of their favorite games all in one destination on the casino floor.

Since its launch in 2015, Aristocrat’s multiple award-winning Lightning Link struck a chord with players around the world and has grown in popularity year after year.
