Aristocrat Hires Former IGT Developer

Aristocrat and International Game Technology are fierce competitors in Australia’s poker machine market – but IGT has always managed to stay one step ahead, especially in the online and social gaming worlds. Now, Aristocrat has the chance to close the gap, as the company has just hired one of IGT’s lead developers, Joe Kaminkow.

Known as an innovative thinker , Kaminkow is responsible for the development of some of IGT’s most popular branded slots games. Titles like Ghostbusters and Sex and the City would never have been released had it not been for Kaminkow’s hard work and pioneering vision.

“We look forward to Joe’s contribution as we take another step up in our ability to grow”, says Aristocrat CEO Jamie Odell.

Aristocrat has 50 years of experience in the land-based gambling market, and the company has a good grip on what it is that classic pokie players want. Now, as the electronic gaming market continues to expand, it is time for Aristocrat to update its approach to modern gaming. Since branded slots are the next big thing in the online and land-based poker machine market, Kaminkow can certainly help ensure that Aristocrat begins developing games that appeal to the taste of modern gamers.
