Castle Hill Gaming is a relatively small, privately owned company that entered the market in 2015. It supplies land-based casino games in the United States. Both parties reacted differently to the signed agreement.
Aristocrat Tehnologies President expressed his satisfaction with the result:
This agreement reaffirms the commitment of VGT and Aristocrat to protect our intellectual property, including VGT’s Class II portfolio. We will continue to be proactive and aggressive in protecting our assets.
While the representative of Castle Hill Gaming has a different opinion:
We are amazed at this result of David’s struggle against Goliath. I believe that VGT and its parent company, Aristocrat, wanted to knock us out of business because they saw us as a threat to competition. Our games are on par with their games in many of the casinos where we compete. But we survived, thrive and enter new markets like Historical Horse Racing.
