LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Leading casino systems supplier Aristocrat has secured a new, major contract that will bring its recently released online play-for-fun solution to tribal gaming for the first time. Aristocrat will be developing a complete virtual casino site for long-term Oasis 360™ systems customer Island Resort & Casino.
