Gambling supply firm boasts it is now fourth largest in its sector

The Australian gambling supply company Aristocrat is now fourth largest in the world in the digital social gaming sector, according to a report by the Australian Associated Press news agency, commenting on the company's remarkable international growth, with revenue two years ago tenth among its rivals, rising to fifth by September 2016.
This week the company confirmed its earlier corporate guidance that normalised profit growth of 20 to 30 percent for the full year to September 30 will be achieved.
Addressing the Aristocrat agm this week, outgoing CEO Jamie Odell said that the company's digital social gaming business includes the Heart of Vegas suite of games, and Cashman Casino which was launched in December 2016.
He revealed that Heart of Vegas was the third-highest grossing social casino app, with revenue growing by 82 percent and profits by 127 percent.
Last November Odell caused some consternation among shareholders when he announced his intention to step down in February 2017 after successfully helming the group since 2009.
Odell said that the group's performance in the first four months of the current fiscal year has been strong, and that regulatory approval has been achieved for his replacement, Trevor Croker, to assume chief executive responsibilities starting March 1 2017.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
