Lightning Link™ Lounge powered by Casino 360? opens at WinStar World Casino and Resort

Gaming lounge houses most Lightning Link games in one space across the globe

Thackerville, Oklahoma (August 25, 2017) – The largest collection in the world of one of gaming’s most popular titles is open at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Oklahoma. The Lightning Link™ Lounge powered by Casino 360? features over 150 Lightning Link units across almost 4,000 square feet in the London Gaming Plaza of one of the world’s largest casinos.

Jenny Cross said the overhaul of the existing Casino 360? area was a collaborative effort between the casino and Gaming Capital Group – a long-standing partner of the casino.

“Since its opening, Casino 360? had grown to be a popular area in the casino with its vibrant lighting and immersive experience,” said Jenny Cross, WinStar’s assistant general manager. “We wanted to continue the momentum of this particular gaming area. The opportunity to reinvent the space into the Lightning Link Lounge powered by Casino 360? was a way for us to continue our partnership with GCG and enabled us to continue creating that unique patron experience for which we are known.”

Melissa Cox, Gaming Capital Group’s VP of Marketing and Customer Relations, said the performance of Lightning Link games at WinStar as well as in other markets made the project a natural fit for the state’s largest gaming facility.

“Our partnerships with both Winstar and Aristocrat are very important to our operation. At GCG, it’s our mission to place the best product for our customers and we are very fortunate to have a product like Lightning Link to offer,” said Cox. “We are confident the Lightning Link Lounge will perform well and our team is very excited to see more themes like Lightning Link from Aristocrat.”

Aristocrat’s Lightning Link gaming machines have struck a chord with players around the world, continuing to grow in popularity since the product’s launch in 2015 and garnering multiple industry awards.

In 2017, Lighting Link was named Best Slot Solution at the Asian Gaming Awards. It was named the industry’s top performing game in the Premium Leased category in the EILERS-FANTINI Quarterly Slot Survey and was given the Platinum Award from Casino Journal’s Top 20 Most Innovative Products in 2015.

With this addition, WinStar will be the only casino in Oklahoma to offer an extensive collection of the Lightning Link games with 151 machines in the new lounge, along with the other 50 that will remain on the casino’s main gaming floor. The games will continue to keep players engaged with free games, Hold & Spin bonuses, and a single bonus spin that could award multiple progressives and bonus values.
