Aristocrat’s Dragon Link™ Flies into North America with Great Customer Support

LAS VEGAS (December 20, 2017) – Aristocrat’s all-new Dragon Link™ game is breathing a fire of excitement on casino floors across North America. A perfect partner to Aristocrat’s global phenomenon Lightning Link™, Dragon Link builds on that success in an all-new collection of games carefully designed to coexist with Lightning Link, and the game is already receiving great customer support and player interest.

“The challenge with an incredible success like Lightning Link is how do we take it up a level. With Dragon Link, we took the very best parts of Lightning Link and the very best parts of what we do well at Aristocrat, and created an experience that players are going to love,” said Jon Hanlin, Aristocrat’s VP of Commercial Strategy – Gaming Operations

Dragon Link was named to Casino Journal’s Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Awards for 2016 and features player-selectable multi-denominations of 1c, 2c, 5c, 10c, $1, and $2 which appeal to a wide variety of players and allow operators the flexibility of expanding floor placement options.

Dragon Link improves upon the innovative Hold & Spin™ mechanic found in Lightning Link to provide an exciting gaming experience using a common “Orb” trigger symbol that makes it simple for players to easily recognize the Hold & Spin trigger across all game themes. Plus, the Hold & Spin feature may be triggered in base or free games.

Adding to the fun, Dragon Link’s grand jackpot is a linked progressive, while standalone jackpots give players a chance to win smaller-sized progressives more quickly and more often.

Dragon Link’s game titles are each heavily designed with distinctive Asian themes, and all Dragon Link titles maintain the same denomination options and use the same common trigger symbol across all titles. However, like Lightning Link, the uniqueness in each game comes from the different Free Game features, enabling players to play each game and find their favorites.

A unique, industry-first LED sign package creates a stunning gaming destination on the floor.
