Aristocrat Awarded Contract for Icahn Gaming Properties

9 July 2002

LAS VEGAS--(Press Release)-- Aristocrat Technologies Inc. has been awarded a contract for the installation of its OASIS casino management system in Icahn Gaming's Las Vegas properties, including Arizona Charlie's West, Arizona Charlie's East and the Las Vegas Strip's famous Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower.

The installation at Arizona Charlie's East replaces another manufacturer's system and will monitor 950 games. The system will include Aristocrat's sophisticated Quickets Ticket-In/Ticket-Out and Personal Banker technology.

Installations at Arizona Charlie's West and Stratosphere Tower will upgrade existing OASIS systems from current DOS platforms to a more advanced Windows operating platform. The upgrade also brings Quickets and Personal Banker to the properties. Installation is set to begin in September.

"We have had recent tremendous success with our OASIS products in Las Vegas and across the United States, and we are proud to welcome these three properties into the OASIS family," said Mark Newburg, president of Aristocrat Technologies Inc. "A year ago, we predicted great things for OASIS, and we are delivering on those promises."

Speaking for Icahn Gaming, Vice President of IT Leslie Ruthe said, "We have been pleased with the performance of OASIS in the past, and we are excited about the possibilities the new platforms bring to us. Particularly exciting is the move to cashless gaming. Cashless is clearly the future of the industry, and we are thrilled with the potential the OASIS solutions bring to the properties."

The OASIS casino management system utilizes the popular Windows operating platform and advanced electronic monitoring equipment to collect, integrate, analyze and report information on player and gaming machine activity. OASIS enables operators to link all of their data centers together, including casino, hotel, food and beverage, and point of sale.

Aristocrat Technologies Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of global gaming leader Aristocrat Leisure Limited, is responsible for all North and South American operations from its headquarters in Las Vegas. Aristocrat offers a diversified product line that reaches into virtually all facets of the casino floor.

In addition to both video and stepper slots, the company provides casino management systems, multi-site progressive (MSP) systems, progressive jackpot meters and casino signage.
