In May 2022, Aristocrat announced it would launch its online casino business by the end of 2022. In October that year, it was rebranded as Anaxi, the real-money gaming (RMG) division of the company. 

The company has developed a system called Reel Power, which allows players to buy reels instead of lines, winning combinations in the standard configuration.

Aristocrat's most prominent products are game setups that place large progressive jackpots over a number of machines, including the Lightning Link series. Aristocrat has licensed branded areas at several North American casinos dedicated exclusively to these machines.

The company also has a number of distribution partnerships, including with Sammy Corporation in Japan and with Inspired Entertainment, to bring its virtual sports experiences to the National Football League.

Additionally, in the US, Aristocrat has licensed titles at Grand Vision Gaming of Montana for use on video lottery terminals.

“I look forward to continuing the progress made to modernise the [gambling] industry and make responsible gaming a signature priority.” Trevor J. Croker
