Just a little more than year since lightning first struck in Mexico, Aristocrat’s Lightning Link game has risen to the top and is now one of the most popular casino games in the Mexican market.

“We are delighted with the strong performance of Lightning Link in Mexico and look forward to releasing additional game titles to ensure our customers have more choice and the very best product available” said Carlos Carrión, sales and operations director for Mexico.

Lightning Link is popular with players and with casino operators throughout Mexico, and this success mirrors the game’s popularity in gaming jurisdictions around the world. For example, in the U.S., several casinos have created “Lightning Link Lounges” – spaces on the casino floor dedicated exclusively to Lightning Link games. Lightning Link is a progressive accumulated system that combines multi-denomination, games of 25 or 50 lines, plus a progressive accumulated by bank and by machine to prizes fixed jackpots. The four games currently available in the Mexican market are Magic Pearl, High Stakes, Sahara Gold and Happy Lantern.

Building on the success of these four titles, Aristocrat anticipates releasing four additional titles in Mexico in the coming months. The new titles Best Bet, Moon Race, Heart Throb and Tiki Fire will give players additional entertainment options.
