Kaminkow Joins Aristocrat

Aristocrat Leisure Limited announced that Joe Kaminkow, who headed game development at International Game Technology during that manufacturer’s total dominance of the slot market, has joined Aristocrat’s U.S. subsidiary, Aristocrat Technologies, as senior vice president of game development.

During two separate stints in charge of game design at IGT, Kaminkow was responsible for producing a slew of slot games that have become legendary in the industry, from the most popular TV and movie-themed games of the early 2000s like The Price Is Right, The Beverly Hillbillies, Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Star Wars series to games during his more recent stint including the Center Stage movie-style setup for Batman and American Idol, to Sex and the City, Ghostbusters and The Twilight Zone.

Aristocrat is bringing in Kaminkow to further an effort to boost its stable of recurring-revenue games. The company recently enhanced its creative talent pool with exclusive third-party appointments of Daniel Marks and former Aristocrat game designer Scott Olive.
