Ron Harris

“We attended our first IGA tradeshow in 1997 and there is not a gaming tradeshow on this planet more important to Aries than the IGA annual tradeshow. IGA has served as a voice for tribal gaming enterprises since 1985 and works tirelessly to protect and advance the rights and interests of tribal governments involved in gaming. IGA Chairman Stevens’ hard work and dedication to the protection of tribal sovereignty is exemplary and we are proud to participate in IGA events.” – Ron Harris, CEO, Aries Technology

Aries Technology has drawn inspiration from the thriving multi-billion-dollar amusement industry, which targets audiences of all ages. By merging the appeal of slots for Boomers with the preference for skill/amusement games among Gen X and Millennials, Aries has aimed to establish a new product category that attracts a wider demographic, ultimately increasing casino incremental revenue.

Claw games rank as the top-selling amusement games sold globally and have proven to be fun for people of all backgrounds. Aries confirmed this by introducing the Xtreme Rewards Claw Redemption Center, doubling standard game coin-in when issuing tickets to play The Claw for additional prizes. At IGA 2024, Aries will introduce an exciting three-reel, one-line slot game addition to The Claw, along with a new display showcasing potential prizes, including new LAP/WAP progressive prizes.

Coin Pusher games rank second in global sales among amusement games, with the most ‘rabid’ player base in the amusement industry. At IGA, Aries will unveil an expansion of their Xtreme Fusion Coin Pusher 3 (CP3) games. The CP3 has attracted new, younger, and predominantly male players to the casino. With an average seat time exceeding one hour, it has proven the ‘rabid’ nature of pusher players. The CP3 is teaching this new younger demographic to enjoy slots while turning Boomers into avid pusher enthusiasts. At IGA, Aries will introduce a new CP3 game – Forbidden Jewels, which showcases a new four play collect and win feature.

Aries Xtreme technology has proven to increase casino incremental revenue by attracting a new and broader demographic. Xtreme Rewards and Fusion games are here to stay as a new ‘must-have’ casino gaming category.
