Highlights

  • Several weeks after announcing a partnership with BetMGM Casino, Aristocrat pitches a new tent with FanDuel.
  • New exclusive games to arrive this year courtesy of Anaxi, the online real money gambling subsidiary of Aristocrat.
  • Popular games like Buffalo, Lightning Link and Choy’s Kingdom to feature on FanDuel’s gambling platforms.

Aristocrat Gaming has taken another bold step to bolster the expansion of Anaxi, its world-class online real money gaming business, across Michigan markets. Back in February, the company announced that it was partnering with BetMGM, allowing the casino operator to host its products. The partnership made BetMGM Casino MI the first operator to feature Anaxi’s products in North America.

Since then, Anaxi has agreed to deals with Caesars Casino MI and, now, it has completed talks with FanDuel Casino. Anaxi will be adding all of its impressive casino titles to FanDuel’s catalog while plans for exclusive products are underway.

Stakeholders Deem Partnership Between Anaxi and FanDuel as Fusion of Powerhouses

Aristocrat Gaming is one of the world’s most renowned suppliers of slot games, with its products available across more 326 gaming jurisdictions. In October 2022, the company launched Anaxi, its real money gaming subsidiary at the Global Gaming Expo. Since then, the brand has made its entry into the US, starting with BetMGM and Caesars Casinos.

Anaxi recently announced that it was adding FanDuel to its online casino partners in the US. This partnership means FanDuel casinos in Michigan, New Jersey, West Virginia and Pennsylvania will now host world-class slot releases from Aristocrat and Anaxi.

Principal officers of both companies have lauded the partnership deal, describing it as an exciting milestone. The Managing Director of FanDuel Casino, Asaf Noifeld,  said the partnership is “an exciting moment in gaming and entertainment, bringing two powerhouses together: FanDuel and Anaxi.” Similarly, the Executive Vice President of Anaxi, Cath Burns, remarked that “the launch of [our] iconic Aristocrat content on FanDuel’s platform is an exciting partnership and moment for Anaxi as [we] look to create seamless entertainment experiences for players.”

Anaxi’s Buffalo Slot, Other Popular Releases Now Available on FanDuel Casino

The historic partnership between Anaxi and FanDuel will see the latter company gain access to a catalog of games consisting of top titles from Aristocrat’s 60-year operation. Over the past three decades, Aristocrat Gaming has focused on developing online slots with outstanding graphical quality and varied themes. Players get the pick of the litter from fruit machines, adventure, animal and mythological themed-slots.

Some of the most popular slots that are now available on FanDuel Casino Michigan include Buffalo, Lightning Link, Timber Wolf, Dragon Link and the 5 Dragons series. Anaxi and Aristocrat Gaming also have several table game variants, ranging from online roulette, baccarat and blackjack,  which will be coming to FanDuel Casino Michigan.

As part of the partnership, Anaxi will also launch special Aristocrat games  during the year. The partnership presents the perfect opportunity for Aristocrat Gaming to expand its customer base and continue the development of games for clients with varying tastes. In the same way, FanDuel is increasing the range of options for its players in Michigan and beyond.
