Aristocrat were a bit late to the party to be honest, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. While IGT and Novoline had their games up and running online some time ago, Aristocrat slots only started to appear in 2011. But, when you consider where they are found in land-based casinos and which countries ban online gambling you can kind of understand why there wasn't perhaps such a rush to get out there.

For example, Aristocrat pokies are very popular in Australia but Aussie players are blocked from Aristocrat games online because of local laws. The same situation applies in the USA while in places like England, where online gambling is perfectly legal and regulated, Aristocrat games are hardly known! All this will change in time of course and regulated online gambling seeps out around the world.

100 Lions Slot

As for the online games themselves, this site has already gone into detail on the 50 Lions slot but there are several other interesting Aristocrat titles online. Most can be found at Bet365 Games incidentally and the roster includes "Queen Of The Nile 2", "Where's The Gold", "Red Baron", "Big Ben", "Choy Sun Doa", "Werewolf Wild" and "Zorro" right now.

November 2011 heralded the launch of "5 Dragons", "Dolphin Treasure" and the original "Queen Of The Nile" slot game at both MoneyGaming and Mecca Games (slots section of Mecca Bingo). 2012 also saw the arrival of the 50 Dragons online slot and it’s possible we might see the 100 Lions slot at some point in the future too.

The look and feel of the online versions of Aristocrat's slots is identical to the land based slot machines you see, right down to the way the reels click as they land. They have an old-school feel to them - partly because they are older games - but that is all part of the charm and they are very popular for a reason. Aristocrat slots are currently developed under licence for online play by two developers: GameAccount and Next Gen Gaming.
