19 January 1999

ARIA Wireless Systems, Inc. (OTC BB: AWSI) has signed a contract with Autotote Lottery Corporation to supply wireless data communications networks for the Montana State Lottery.

The initial purchase calls for ARIA to supply approximately 200 intelligent radio modems and associated master stations to provide wireless connectivity for linking lottery terminals throughout the state. The lottery is expected to be operational by mid-year 1999.

"We are delighted to be selected as Autotote's provider of wireless systems for their newly-awarded Montana State Lottery," ARIA Vice President Michael Fetto said. "Aria's products provide reliable, cost-effective, secure transmission of financial transaction data in applications such as retail credit card, point of sale, ATM, electronic funds transfer and securities brokerage services. We now have specifically targeted our communications products toward the lottery and gaming industries where transactions from remote terminals to a host processor can be completed without a wired local-loop. We look forward to expanding our business into this growth industry."
