Did you know that slot machines are referred to as “pokies” in Australia and New Zealand? It is a strange name we know but it is just a short way of abbreviating the term poker machine. One of the biggest players in the Australian pokies market is Aristocrat. In fact, they are second only to IGT for being one of the largest pokies manufacturers in the world. The company is also known as Aristocrat Slots and it is a public Australian company with its headquarters in Sydney. To date, the company has over 60 years experience in the industry and employs over 2,200 staff all across the globe.

A brief history of Aristocrat

The company was founded by Len Ainsworth back in 1953 when he started to produce pokies and slot machines. As technology improved, progressive jackpots were introduced and reels expanded in slot machines, this enabled Aristocrat to start manufacturing more and more slot machines in Australia as well as the rest of the world. They are so big in Australia that all you need to do is walk into a pub or club anywhere and you will easily find a few Aristocrat Pokies. These machines are so popular because of the nice payouts of the games and the exclusive features that some of the games offer. Another reason why they are loved so much is because they are really easy to play and they do not feature any detailed instructions or flashy symbols. All you need to do is just spin those reels and that is all there is to it.
