Aristocrat has built on its presence in the Mexican gaming market with the opening of the first Lightning Link Lounge in Latin America, at PlayCity Casino Andares in the city of Guadalajara.

An exclusive area with the PlayCity venue has been dedicated to the 32 gaming machines connected under the Lightning Link Lounge concept. The Lightning Link system offers a progressive accumulated prize as well as fixed prizes, all with patented game mechanics.

“Lightning Link has proven to be the best product on the market during the last year, consolidating with all types of players and in different regions of the country, so we want to offer the concept of Lightning Link Lounge to our players to be at the forefront of the gaming industry,” said Kevin Rosenberg, director of business development at PlayCity.

Alvaro Nores, vice president for Latin America at Aristocrat, added: “We appreciate the confidence and support of PlayCity in the launch of the first Lightning Link Lounge in Mexico, we believe it will be the first of many in the entire region.”

PlayCity has also committed to install 250 Lightning Link game machines in its 17 rooms around the country.

“Our commitment to the Mexican market is to offer the best gaming experience and for that we are convinced that this concept will be well received by the players and will make Lightning Link Lounge the favourite and most visited place in the casino,” said Carlos Carrion, director of sales and operations for Aristocrat in Mexico.
