“This acquisition reflects an important milestone in Aristocrat’s commitment to provide an end-to-end solution for our customers,” he added.
Commenting on the deal, Phi Gaming’s president and chief executive Diallo Gordon said: “We are grateful to Aristocrat and will deliver simple, useful, and amazing products to the Oasis 360 portfolio.”
