Thursday, October 4, 2012 : ARISTOCRAT LAUNCHES TRIBAL ONLINE CASINO
 
nLive virtual casino to act as powerful marketing tool
 
Gaming solutions provider Aristocrat has launched a new nLive virtual casino for tribal terrestrial operation Island Resort Casino which is wholly owned by the Hannahville Indian Community, a federally-recognised Potawatomi Indian Tribe residing in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan State.
 
Island Resort Casino is a long-time partner of Aristocrat and the company's terrestrial casino solution Oasis 360, it is the first to contract for an nLive site and is the first to go live.
 
The nLive online play-for-fun offering at casino.islandresortandcasino.com offers heads-up or multiplayer Texas Hold'em poker games, new and classic Aristocrat slot games and multiplayer skill-based games on PC and mobile platforms.  The site will also utilise nLiveLink which links the online casino to the land-based casino via the property's existing Oasis 360 casino management system.
 
Aristocrat VP of System Sales and Marketing, Kelly Shaw said: "The Hannahville Indian Community is a visionary tribe, and the Island Resort Casino is a stand-out leader in tribal country. The tribe looked to us to create a solution to be a strong marketing tool to drive players to the brick-and-mortar operation, and we are confident that the powerful combination of the nLive virtual casino and the nLiveLink player rewards link will do exactly that."
