Aristocrat Launches Zorro Penny Slots

17 August 2005

LAS VEGAS –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Aristocrat Technologies continues to expand its Hyperlink(R) progressive slots portfolio with this summer's widespread introduction of a Zorro(TM)-themed local-area penny progressive offering a $50,000 top jackpot award. The linked progressive was recently approved by Gaming Laboratories International, Inc. for introduction into most river, land-based, and tribal gaming jurisdictions nationwide.

"Our customers have been eagerly anticipating the introduction of another Hyperlink theme that promises to offer the same kind of proven performance inherent in our other Hyperlink products such as Millioni$er(R), Peli Legendary Goals(TM), Cash Express(R), and Jackpot Carnival(R)," said Kent Young, Aristocrat Technologies' Vice President, Marketing. "Generations have admired the honorable principles of the masked hero who personifies action and altruism. We think casino operators will benefit from his cross-generational appeal."

Aristocrat's Zorro linked progressive combines two highly successful Aristocrat game concepts -- Hyperlink and the Bonus Bank. When wagering an additional, 10-credit ante bet, players are eligible to win one of six bonus features, which include the four Hyperlink jackpots. The first three Hyperlink jackpots are progressive while the top jackpot is static at $50,000 and can be won on any game at any time. Once a player enters into the Hyperlink jackpot cards feature they are guaranteed to win one of the four jackpots, adding excitement to their game play.

Any one of the six random bonuses, including the Hyperlink jackpot cards feature, is awarded when Z-O-R-R-O is spelled in any position on the screen through the use of overlay symbols on top of certain Ace, King, Queen, and Jack symbols.

Aristocrat augments its exciting Zorro bonus package with two unique Zorro-themed MKVI(TM) 20-line penny slots, Zorro and Zorro Unmasked, featuring high-resolution graphics and an enhanced sound package.

Aristocrat has enhanced Zorro's game play excitement by offering Zorro in a complete package that includes themed chairs and attractive signage. The eye-catching plasma sign enhances floor presence and player anticipation by celebrating wins and playing compelling, full-color story animations of Zorro's adventures.
