Aristocrat's Agassi Slots Approved

7 July 2005

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. today announced that Gaming Laboratories International, Inc. (GLI) approved its new Agassi penny slot machine for introduction into most Native American and riverboat gaming jurisdictions. The game is already starting to appear in Nevada casinos after its launch last month at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

"Our Agassi penny slot combines a sleek and sophisticated cabinet design with features to delight players, including dual monitors, frequent jackpots, a win celebration mode, and the same great entertainment value found in all of our low-denom games," said Kent Young, Vice President of Marketing for Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "It appeals to both repeat and tourist players and should perform extremely well in the riverboat and Native American casinos."

Aristocrat's Agassi slot machine features an upscale cabinet design with a 19-inch, flat-screen LCD monitor on the top box that incorporates the two progressive jackpot meters. Interactive colors and graphics animate and change during jackpot wins and bonus rounds.

The game includes a standalone, two-level progressive that delivers frequent jackpot wins. Players can add even more excitement by betting maximum lines and making an additional wager, which makes them eligible for one of four interactive, mystery bonus games incorporating multipliers, free games, and player's choice features.

"The top-box LCD monitor in the game's sleek cabinet celebrates jackpot wins to the player, inspiring play and adding excitement to the casino floor," Young said.

"The cabinet design, when combined with our bonus and progressive features and Agassi's globally recognized image, gives this game strong potential to perform very well for casino operators," Young said.

Aristocrat's Agassi penny slot combines Aristocrat's surefire math with a slot theme reflecting the celebrity personality of international tennis star Andre Agassi, only one of five men in the history of the sport to win all four Grand Slam tournaments (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the U.S. Open Championships). Agassi also won an Olympic gold medal for the U.S. in 1996.

"Aristocrat's game designers truly outdid themselves with the design and entertainment aspects of the game," Agassi said.

"We couldn't ask for a better partner than Andre Agassi, whose life epitomizes the kind of sophistication reflected in Aristocrat's video slots," said Gavin Isaacs, President of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "We worked closely with Andre and his team to ensure that this game met their high standards and reflected Agassi's reputation for excellence."
