Aristocrat Launches Dragon Link, Buffalo RELM XL

Aristocrat Technologies has officially launched the Dragon Link progressive product in North America, and has launched new versions of its award-winning Buffalo brand on the RELM XL giant-format stepper cabinet.

A partner to the company’s super-hot Lightning Link, Dragon Link builds on that success in an all-new collection of games carefully designed to coexist with Lightning Link, and according to the company, the game is already receiving great customer support and player interest.

Dragon Link improves upon the innovative “Hold & Spin” mechanic found in Lightning Link to provide an exciting gaming experience using a common “Orb” trigger symbol that makes it simple for players to easily recognize the Hold & Spin trigger across all game themes. Plus, the Hold & Spin feature may be triggered in base or free games.

In a separate release, Aristocrat announced the launch of Buffalo Thundering 7’s and Buffalo Inferno, versions of the company’s industry-leading Buffalo game theme on the new RELM XL large-format stepper cabinet.

Standing nine and a half feet tall, RELM XL features an eye-catching mechanical wheel topper. RELM XL uses a unique 43-inch J-curved monitor with full touch-screen capabilities, large classic reel symbols, traditional wheel plex, stereo sound, and vibrant LED edge lighting.

RELM XL games are featured in a three- or five-reel mechanical reel set configuration for high-, middle- and low-denomination placements, and industry-first bulging reel sets. RELM XL houses a physical bell that celebrates big wins.
