LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE)-- Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., a Las Vegas-based provider of gaming machines and casino management systems, announced that it has signed a contract to provide its OASIS(TM) Casino Management System to Norwegian Cruise Lines Corporation (NCL) to link and monitor activity on 1,000 gaming machines in five onboard casinos.

"We're thrilled to have been selected as NCL's casino management system provider for five of its casinos with the Casinos at Sea membership program," said Gavin Isaacs, President of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "NCL has dramatically enhanced the gaming experience for their passengers and we're proud to be partners with them as they utilize our technology to offer even more player benefits and rewards."

"Over the past few years we've really stepped up our player loyalty and promotions programs on our Casinos at Sea, and installing the advanced technology of Aristocrat's OASIS is the next step in our evolution," said Dana Leibovitz, Senior Vice President of NCL Corporation.

Under the contract, Aristocrat will provide its most advanced technology including the OASIS Quickets(TM) ticket-in/ticket out system to enable cashless wagering.
