Aristocrat Game Approved by Mississippi Commission

10 February 2005

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. today announced that its industry standout Cash Express Hyperlink progressive game was recently approved by The Mississippi Gaming Commission for introduction into one of the United States' largest gaming jurisdictions.

"We're absolutely thrilled about this key approval which will allow us to offer gaming operators in Mississippi the Cash Express Hyperlink four-level random progressives that are already popular with players across the country and have become a phenomenon because of their high performance and player appeal," said Gavin Isaacs, President of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "This approval is particularly significant because it introduces our Hyperlink product to the Mississippi market and also paves the way toward additional Hyperlink product approvals including Millioni$er(R), Penny Train(TM) and Jackpot Carnival(TM).

Cash Express debuted in the United States in 1992 and is widely available in Nevada, California, Indiana, Detroit and most Native American casinos nationwide.

In Cash Express, a random trigger signals the train whistle to blow during play on Aristocrat's MKVI(TM) base game. The lucky player is transported into the second-screen bonus with five spinning reels. The player touches a button to stop each reel, which reveals a number. The numbers are added together to accumulate the score and the score determines which of the four levels of jackpots are won. Once in the bonus round, a player is guaranteed to win one of the four progressive jackpots.

Aristocrat Technologies' Hyperlink progressive suite of products includes Cash Express; Cash Express Penny Train; Jackpot Carnival; and Millioni$er, which offers players the chance to win up to a $1 million jackpot on a penny slot.

"Our Hyperlink products have been extremely well received across the country with both repeat players and tourists," said Kent Young, Aristocrat Technologies' Vice President of Marketing. "Players love the excitement and entertainment generated by the four-level jackpot combined with a strong Aristocrat MKVI(TM) base game. And we package the product with customized slot bases, chairs, and plasma screens that offer 3-D graphics and high-tech sounds that only add to the fun of playing the game."

Young said that as a result of Aristocrat's tremendous success with its Hyperlink series, the Company will introduce two additional Hyperlink games this year -- Pele Legendary Goals(TM) and Zorro(TM).
