The game includes a top prize of $250,000, three progressive jackpots (major, minor and standard) along with a 150 x max bet. The real Mission Impossible game uses a touch-screen LCD monitor, graphics from the GENX7 client and accepts bets as small as $0.05. The online version is available at a few casinos including Bet365, however it’s not quite the same as the original. The original game is only available in North American casinos.

History of Aristocrat Gaming
The first online slot machine ever built by Aristocrat Gaming was in 1953 and was founded by Len Ainsworth. The Ainsworth still owns a small but beneficial stake in the company and has been listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ALL) since 1996. Interestingly enough, while the family maintains a share in the original company, they’ve since moved on to become Chairman of a separate gaming company called Ainsworth Game Technology which is the developer of Ambassador and A560 gaming machines. Aristocrat’s original market was of course Australia but has since moved into Europe, North American and Asia. The brand is licensed to market their games in over 200 countries.
