Particularly good news this week trending on casino news headlines is the announcement that Aristocrat Technologies has not only secured the rights to develop a Crazy Rich Asians pokie, but that the developer will be showing the new game at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E). The game was developed in partnership with product owner Warner Bros Consumer Products Incorporated.
But better even is the fact that Aristocrat’s VP of Commercial Strategy and Gaming Operations, namely Jon Hanlin, also made use of the official Tuesday press release in order to confirm that not only will players be offered a sneak peek at Crazy Rich Asians at the Aristocrat expo stand (stand 1133), but that they will be in position to feast their eyes on an entire selection of Warner Bros-licensed pokies, including The Big Bank Theory, A Christmas Story, Mad Max: Fury Road and Westworld.
There’s No Folly In Youth
Crazy Rich Asians proved a royal hit at the box office and is a study of true raw filmmaking talent on the part of young US film producer Jon Chu. Warner Bros has made an announcement of its own regarding Aristocrat having re-themed the idea into the shape of a pokie and has said that it was exceptionally pleased to discover that the end-result includes various themes that run like threads through the initial motion picture. The connection between the movie and the new game is strong, and it’s the type of redevelopment that creative genius is made of.
Players who happen to be fans of any particular television show or storyline want to see the idea be brought full circle into a pokie. When the theme is solid and in line with the original idea is when a smash hit online pokie is conjured into existence. We’ll be damned if we don’t hear a great deal more about the game during the months ahead.
Showing Off Industry’s Best
G2E is currently underway and is again hosted inside of the massive Sands Expo & Convention Centre. The expo will span 3 days in total and attendees will be able to feast their eyes and minds on some of the best content to have come from the inner-workings of the online casino games industry over the course of recent months.
The expo every year attracts the who’s who of the casino and gaming development world. Aristocrat certainly falls into this category.
