In 1996 it entered the Australian Stock Exchange ASX. Aristocrat is primarily present in Las Vegas casinos and worldwide, but only a few online casinos own their slot machines. In total, the Aristocrat solution is distributed in more than 240 jurisdictions and 90 countries.

They expand into the digital market and acquire Product Madness in 2013. Recently, the company is focusing on a new and much more sophisticated offering and even on the origin of the giant Aristocrat slot machines that can be found today in all physical casinos, the themes are those of cult series such as The Walking Dead named ‘Casino Product of the Year’ at the Global Gaming Awards, The Big Bang Theory or Game of Thrones.
