Groundbreaking partnerships of this kind are the driving force in continuing to move our industry forward, and we’re eager to see our Mobile on-Premise solution now live, helping elevate the gaming experience offered by tribal gaming operators. We also thank our integration partners that have been part of this journey, helping to deliver this innovation solution,” said Josh Morris, SVP iGaming Product & Technology at Anaxi.

Through this collaborative partnership with WinStar World Casino and Resort, Anaxi’s Mobile on-Premise solution brings three of Aristocrat’s famous Class II titles Mr. Money Bags, Polar High Roller and Hot Red Ruby, to the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma through a new digital experience.
