Slot machine company hits jackpot in Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. — Aristocrat Gaming has broken ground on a new facility in east Tulsa.

The company builds a lot of the slot machines spotted in casinos. Their lineup includes Lightning Link, Dragon Link, Mr. Money Bags, and Hot Red Ruby. However, the company is quickly outgrowing their facility on E. Skelly Drive. So, they are upgrading.

The new facility near South 145th E. Ave. and Admiral will be 137,000 square feet of manufacturing space and offices.

“It’s not designed to build what our business requires and so we’re going to move out of that facility, and building a new one, we get to actually design it for exactly what the purpose is,” said Hector Fernandez, President of Aristocrat Americas & Europe.

The facility will primarily remanufacture slot machines for casinos across the world. Aristocrat Gaming has a presence in Europe, Latin America, and Australia.

The warehouse is expected to be completed this winter. The office is expected to open in the spring of 2022.
