Aristocrat will be showcasing some of its strongest performing Asian concepts at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming trade show in London.

Aristocrat is taking some of its best performing Asian titles to Europe, with the recently released Dragon Link to make its debut at ICE in London from 6 to 8 February.

Dragon Link is an evolution of Aristocrat’s groundbreaking Lightning Link series, which was the company’s first progressive range with player-selectable denominations – providing instant customization for players of all levels. Displayed in an Arc Single portrait-screen form, Dragon Link will launch at ICE with four Asian-themed base games – “Autumn Moon”, “Golden Century”, “Happy & Prosperous” and “Panda Magic” –   all supported by a choice of eye-catching LED sign packages.

The Dragon Link series is also one of a number of Aristocrat creations to have adopted Lightning Link’s popular “Hold & Spin” feature, including the Mighty Cash series which will appear at ICE showcasing titles “Zorro”, “Ted”, “Elvira” and “Pan Am.” In “Hold & Spin”, players have three free spins in which to collect at least one of 15 available coins – each bearing a credit win – with the three free spins reset each time at least one coin is collected and the grand jackpot won if all 15 are collected.

Asian themes aside, Aristocrat will be displaying its newly licensed Flame55 cabinet at ICE – a sleek and elegant large format cabinet featuring a 55-inch portrait doublecurved screen.

Flame55 is available in standalone and beacon carousels and will showcase its launch title, themed on three-time Grammy award winning pop music superstar Mariah Carey.

“Mariah Carey” is a single-site progressive entertainment game with raised volatility and mechanics derived from other proven Aristocrat titles including “Lightning Link”, “Buffalo Gold” and “More Chilli.” In the the Flame55 pipeline is a sequel to the highly successful title “Game of Thrones” and a new title based on the HBO powerhouse series, “Westworld.”

“Aristocrat is packing more layers of rich content and features into an expanding portfolio of games, supported by our popular and proven mechanics,” said James Boje, Aristocrat’s Managing Director – EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). “We’re delighted to be delivering customers products that perform and we look forward to offering them even more choice and sharing our vision of the future at ICE 2018.”
