Looks like a really great numbers for them, obviously they're one of the companies involved in both online and land based sectors so from the statements above I left with an impression they would think and develop more and more the digital sector of their business.

Wow, I was stunned at the numbers in the article, so I search for some information on Aristocrat.
And I found out that this company is the second biggest in land casinos, and also found out many game that I played and lost before. I lost a lot 😀

No wonder about the numbers above 🙂
