Company Leverages Strong Performance to Highlight Innovative Technology and Showcase New Reel Power(R), Super Reel Power(TM), Hyperlink(R), and 50 Line Game Titles

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Coming off its strongest half year of revenue in Company history, Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. today announced that it will display a standout array of gaming machines and technology at the 2005 Global Gaming Expo September 13-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Approximately 70 percent of the games in Aristocrat’s booth, #1213, will be approved in one or more U.S. gaming jurisdictions.

“Our G2E exhibit is going to look like the casino floor of the future, featuring our new five-reel stepper series, a range of double standalone progressive games, downloadable technology, and a new, 100 percent cashless slant-top cabinet among over 150 game titles,” said Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. President Gavin Isaacs. “The new games and game concepts on display demonstrate our commitment to continuing to provide casino operators with high-performing games that entertain players.”

In addition to an impressive array of new games, Aristocrat will exhibit its downloadable games technology. Aristocrat’s downloadable package allows gaming operators to instantaneously change from one Aristocrat game to another through a server-based content delivery system and measure game performance in real time using Windows(R)-based software applications. The top-box art in Aristocrat’s downloadable slot cabinet changes to the new game artwork simultaneously.

“This truly puts control in the hands of gaming operators, who can continuously monitor coin in and win-per-unit and quickly alter their floor mix based on this performance,” said Robert A. DelRossi, Aristocrat’s Vice President, Global Systems and Networks. “Our focus is on the customer — the gaming operator. Our strategy is to deliver the performance analysis tools they need to both manage yield and provide a superior customer service experience for their customers. At the same time, we intend to keep things virtually transparent to the player, who can enjoy the same great gaming experience they do today.”

Also among the standout products in Aristocrat’s 8,100 square foot booth will be its new line of double standalone progressive games, featuring dual monitors and two tiered progressive jackpots. The games’ sleek and sophisticated cabinet features a 19-inch, flat screen LCD monitor in the top box that display the progressive jackpots. Titles on display will include Zorro(TM), Corrida de Toros(TM), Big Red(TM), Agassi(R), and The George Lopez Game(TM).

Also featured will be Aristocrat’s new five-reel stepper portfolio. Combining the familiarity of a stepper game with a 20-line, five-reel video- style format, these new games bridge the gap between stepper and video play. Aristocrat is offering its new five-reel steppers in popular and proven titles

taken directly from its MKVI(TM) video library, including Geisha(TM), Sun and Moon(TM), and Eagle Rock(R).

Other innovative products debuting in Aristocrat’s G2E exhibit include:

* Xtreme Mystery(TM), a progressive-controlled mystery jackpot. At G2E
Aristocrat will introduce its first Xtreme Mystery game, Gold
Fever(TM), which adds excitement by revealing the casino-selectable
mystery jackpot in the 19-inch LCD top box.

* The Crown slant-top cabinet, a streamlined and modern design with
ergonomic features and an enhanced printer display. The Crown slant is
Aristocrat’s first cabinet designed without a hopper, making it 100
percent coinless.

Aristocrat adds high-denom progressive to Hyperlink line

Joining Aristocrat’s Hyperlink family of linked progressives are several new products that will be highlighted at G2E, including:

* Scorchin’ Fortune(R), a four-level local-area progressive designed for
high-denom play. The race-car themed Scorchin’ Fortune features
Aristocrat’s MKVI(TM) Classics five and nine-line base games Wild
Cougar(R) and Black Panther(R).

* Aristocrat’s new multi-site progressive, Loco Loot(R), which utilizes
Reel Power(R) base games and features a top-box LCD that displays the
jackpot levels and offers custom animation.

* The Zorro(TM) Hyperlink local-area progressive, offering a static
$50,000 top jackpot award on each 20-line Zorro-themed base game. A
10-credit ante bet increases a player’s chance of winning one of the
four jackpots.

* 25-Line Cash Express(R), adding more lines and more excitement to
Aristocrat’s standout Hyperlink local-area progressive.

Company adds numerous new titles to MKVI(TM) portfolio

Aristocrat will also spotlight a number of new additions to its extensive portfolio of low-denomination, standalone MKVI(TM) video slots.

“We continue to refresh our large portfolio of standalone MKVI(TM) video slots with a number of new titles, all on display in our booth,” said Kent Young, Aristocrat’s Vice President, Marketing. “The majority of these games are low-denomination titles featuring our proven math and high-performing style of game play that offers a winning experience to gaming operators and players alike.”
