Aristocrat Gaming Expands to Québec: A New Era in Lottery Market



Aristocrat Gaming’s Strategic Move into Québec’s Lucrative Lottery Market

In a landmark announcement, Aristocrat Gaming, renowned for its innovative gaming solutions, has secured its much-anticipated entry into the Québec video lottery terminal (VLT) gaming market. This strategic partnership with Loto-Québec signifies Aristocrat Gaming’s commitment to expanding its global footprint and offering its acclaimed gaming experiences to new audiences.

Aristocrat’s Entry into Québec’s VLT Sector

Stéphane Fraser, EVP and COO of Gaming Establishments at Loto-Québec, has confirmed the collaboration with Aristocrat Gaming. This partnership grants Aristocrat access to Québec’s thriving VLT market, setting the stage for the distribution of its cutting-edge video lottery hardware and games starting in early Summer 2024.

A Diverse Portfolio of Games

Aristocrat Gaming’s initial launch in Québec includes an exciting lineup of 10 games, featuring popular titles such as “Bao Zhu Zhao Fu Red Festival” and “Fire Light.” These games will be showcased on the innovative MidKnight X Upright cabinet, promising an engaging gaming experience for players.

Kurt Gissane’s Vision for Expansion

Kurt Gissane, CRO of Aristocrat Gaming, emphasizes the significance of entering the Québec market. This move not only showcases Aristocrat’s dedication to exploring emerging segments but also enables them to introduce award-winning products to new demographics. Gissane expresses enthusiasm for establishing a long-term relationship with Loto-Québec.


Broader Reach in the Gaming Industry

Aristocrat Gaming’s entry into Québec follows its recent success in the US with the launch of NFL Super Bowl Jackpots. These NFL-themed slot machines, resulting from a collaboration with the National Football League, symbolize the company’s ability to blend popular culture with gaming innovation.

Cashless Gaming Trial in Australia

Further showcasing Aristocrat Gaming’s industry leadership, the company, alongside partners such as eBet, IGT, and Light & Wonder, has received conditional approval for an extended cashless gaming trial in New South Wales, Australia. This trial, involving nearly 4,500 electronic machines, aims to evaluate the impact of cashless gaming technology on player behavior and attitudes.


Aristocrat Gaming’s foray into Québec’s VLT market marks a significant milestone, reflecting the company’s strategic growth and diversification. As Aristocrat continues to innovate and adapt to changing market dynamics, its partnership with Loto-Québec and ventures in other global markets underscore its commitment to revolutionizing the gaming industry. This expansion not only strengthens Aristocrat’s position as a leader in the gaming sector but also promises to enrich the gaming experience for players across different regions.
