Aristocrat Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Contract for OASIS System

5 November 2001

LAS VEGAS, Nevada --(Press Release)--Nov. 5, 2001-- Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. today announced a multi-million dollar contract for the installation of its OASIS casino management system at the three largest casinos in Mesquite, Nev., all owned and operated by Diversified Interests of Las Vegas.

The OASIS system will be installed at the Oasis Resort & Casino, the Casablanca Resort Hotel & Casino, and the Virgin River Hotel & Casino and Bingo. The first installation is planned for the Oasis casino and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The installations will displace two other casino management systems and will monitor more than 2,400 games at the three casinos.

``En route to selecting the OASIS system, we evaluated a lot of casino management systems,'' stated Randy Black, Sr., chairman of the board of the privately held Diversified Interests. ``In the highly competitive gaming industry, you need to be able to pinpoint the trends established by your customers and be able to react at the drop of a hat. Each system has its advantages, but we found the features in this particular system met our specific needs.

``Our goal in choosing OASIS was to provide us with a competitive edge in marketing and, hopefully, to raise customer satisfaction with better service,'' explained Black. ``We look at ourselves as a viable gaming alternative to Las Vegas. Just because we are in a small town doesn't mean that we don't have to be just as good, if not better, than our big city or small town competitors to attract and keep our customers.''

``The selection of a casino management system is one of the most critical for a casino and we appreciate the vote for the OASIS system,'' said Mark Newburg, president of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. ``As this contract underscores, OASIS is deployed not only for accounting and other administrative functions, but also for player marketing solutions.

``As we continue to expand on our leadership role in the systems arena, we focus the OASIS system on delivering the features that produce these added value components for the casino. Today, this includes providing the latest innovations for cashless casino solutions, which provide both better player satisfaction and associated cost-savings,'' concluded Newburg.

One of the latest OASIS innovations is its Quickets(TM) redemption capability for ``ticket in/ticket out'' validation, which is already installed at more than 20 casinos around the U.S. In total, more than 140,000 gaming machines in more than 125 casinos across North America are now being monitored by OASIS systems.

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. .
