LAS VEGAS (March 16, 2021) – Lightning is striking twice in Mesquite, Nevada! Aristocrat Gaming™ and Mesquite Gaming have launched two new Lightning Link Lounges™ at CasaBlanca Resort, Casino, Golf & Spa and Virgin River Hotel & Casino, bringing with them a storm of fun for every casino player.
Each Lightning Link Lounge is a dedicated area of the casino filled exclusively with Aristocrat’s player-favorite Lightning Link™ slot game. The Lightning Link Lounge at CasaBlanca opened March 10 with 20 games, and Virgin River’s Lightning Link Lounge opened March 11 with 24 games.
“Mesquite Gaming and Aristocrat have a built a long-time partnership and their Link games have been very popular with our players,” said Chris Lazzara, Vice President of Marketing and Advertising for Mesquite Gaming. “The new lounge spaces will create even more excitement on our slot floors at both locations.”
The concept for Lightning Link Lounges was born from player demand. “From the minute Lightning Link first hit the casino floor in Australia, it became a global sensation. Here in the States, we have worked with our customers from coast to coast to launch Lightning Link Lounges, all in response to player demand,” said Jon Hanlin, senior vice president of commercial strategy and business analytics.
Aristocrat’s Lightning Link is a prime example of the company’s innovative spirit and its game play set new industry standards. Since its launch in 2015, the multiple award-winning Lightning Link struck a chord with players around the world and has grown in popularity year after year.
Lightning Link was created specifically to appeal to all types of players – frequent players and more casual gamers, those who like a jackpot experience, as well as those who prefer a more entertaining experience.
