‘Aristocrat On Demand’ Launched in Venice

Europe’s oldest casino hosted the launch of Aristocrat’s thick-client downloadable gaming solution, Aristocrat On Demand, with more than 60 initial titles.

Casinò di Venezia, the oldest casino in Europe, will become the first venue on the content to offer Aristocrat On Demand, the thick-client-based downloadable gaming solution from slot manufacturer Aristocrat Technologies.

The initial installation, due to go live in early June, will comprise 20 gaming machines each capable of hosting any of over 60 current library games, with more titles scheduled to be added to the roster over the coming months.

“Our regular players have a great affinity for Aristocrat games,” said Casinò di Venezia Gaming Director Stefano Silvestri, “with some of our best-performing slots including some of the older classics, the more recent Wonder 4 Multi-Play series and right now the latest E Series entertainment 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 throughout the calendar, all carried out quickly and remotely to save time and to maximize the experience for our players. The thick client aspect is also important for minimizing machine downtime, with game play able to continue even in the case of network interruptions.”

Donal Maguire, Aristocrat’s sales and marketing director for Europe, added, “Italian market leader Casinò di Venezia has always been attentive in reviewing the latest solutions in the market to better satisfy their customers. 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 favorites to the very latest titles, around a third of which are not even available in the regular European catalogue, adding even greater exclusivity.

“We are delighted that the world’s oldest casino, established in 1638, has shown such a pioneering vision to spearhead this new technology and we look forward to working closely with Casinò di Venezia to maximize its full potential.”
