10 December 2003

LAS VEGAS – (Press Release) -- Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., a Las Vegas-based provider of gaming machines and casino management systems, announced today that the Nevada Gaming Commission has granted approval for the Company to place its Millioni$er Hyperlink(R) progressive slot link in Nevada casinos.

The Company also announced an agreement with Coast Hotels and Casinos, Inc. in which Aristocrat will place its Millioni$er games into Coast Casinos' four Las Vegas valley casino properties for 45 days prior to the game's release to other Las Vegas locals casino properties.

"We're thrilled to give Coast's players the first chance to play Millioni$er, the only penny game in the industry that offers players the chance to win up to $1 million in Nevada," said Gavin Isaacs, President of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "We're looking forward to collaborating with Coast on marketing and promotional programs as they launch this groundbreaking new product."

"Aristocrat's Millioni$er game offers the fun and excitement that our players demand, especially the anticipation of four different jackpots and the chance to win a $1 million jackpot," said Marcus Suan, Coast Casinos' Vice President of Slot Marketing. "We're very pleased about this partnership with Aristocrat and the opportunity to be the first to offer such an innovative product to the growing segment of penny slot players."

Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. also announced that its Millioni$er progressive was approved by Gaming Laboratories International, Inc. (GLI), the gaming regulatory lab which tests and certifies numerous types of gaming equipment and systems for over 25 North American jurisdictions, including most Native American casinos, riverboat casinos, and gaming properties in several Canadian provinces.

Aristocrat's breakthrough Millioni$er progressive features a patented touchscreen-based, second screen with four different jackpot levels that can be triggered randomly during play on any of four base games that are part of the Millioni$er package. Players that win the grand jackpot will receive $1 million in Nevada and $500,000 in GLI jurisdictions due to GLI jurisdictional requirements.

Millioni$er is the fourth product in Aristocrat's successful series of Hyperlink progressives. The Company also offers Cash Express(R), Cash Express Penny Train, and Jackpot Carnival(TM).
