Aristocrat Technologies Awarded Iowa Casino Contract

14 March 2006

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Las Vegas-based Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. announced today that it was awarded a contract to provide its OASIS(TM) Casino Management System for the April 2006 opening of Peninsula Gaming's new Diamond Jo Casino in Worth County, Iowa -- the first of four new casinos in Iowa to open under the state's gaming expansion.

Along with an OASIS system, Aristocrat Technologies will provide 100 gaming machines for the opening of the new 60,000 square foot, 500-game casino, resulting in a 20 percent presence of Aristocrat's latest slot technology including Reel Power(R), Money Honey(TM) and Mr. Cashman(R) Bonus Bank games and MKVI(TM) standalone games.

Aristocrat already provides games and the OASIS Casino Management System at Peninsula Gaming's other two casinos -- the Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, Iowa and Evangeline Downs Racetrack and Casino in Opelousas, Louisiana.

"We are thrilled about having such a large presence of Aristocrat games on our casino floor," said Jonathan Swain, Chief Operating Officer of Peninsula Gaming Company, LLC. "Aristocrat's high volatility, low-denomination model has proven to be the right formula for our player base and the Company's games continue to be among the top performers at our operations."

"We are equally excited about implementing a new OASIS system, which has demonstrated to be both reliable and innovative at our other two casinos," Swain said. "Aristocrat technology advancements such as PersonalBanker(R) and Marketing Manager(TM) will allow us to attract new customers and maintain the loyalty of our current customer base."

"Aristocrat is honored that Peninsula Gaming chose the Aristocrat OASIS system for its premier new Diamond Jo Casino," said Gavin Isaacs, President of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "We appreciate our long-standing relationship with Peninsula and look forward to implementing our latest games and systems technology at Iowa's newest showcase property."
