COMPANY: Founded in 1953 in Sydney, Australia, Aristocrat Leisure Limited has spent five decades pioneering a distinctive brand of gaming entertainment. With more than 50 years of industry experience and a global staff of more than 2,000, Aristocrat Leisure Limited has built on its Australian market leadership and reputation to become a premium supplier of ground-breaking technology and services to the international gaming industry. Aristocrat Technologies Inc. is the U.S. subsidiary of Aristocrat Leisure Limited.

Aristocrat Technologies designs and markets gaming machines, progressive systems and the Oasis Casino Management System. Las Vegas is the location of Aristocrat’s North and South American operations.

NEW GAMES/PRODUCTS: The most fun games and the best system you need to help you build your casino for the future will be on display at NiGA’s Indian Gaming 2010 trade show in Aristocrat’s booth, #919. Aristocrat will help you construct the perfect blend of video and stepper products, all supported by the most evolved system, Oasis 360™, in the industry.

Aristocrat is refocusing its global energy on North America, bringing even more excitement, fun games and system capabilities to tribal casinos across the continent. Visit Aristocrat’s booth and see Beat the Bandits™, Jeff Foxworthy’s™ Redneck Rumble™, Kentucky Derby™, Beijing Bonanza™ and XRP RFX™.

Among Aristocrat’s newest titles to be shown are Jackpot Manor™, and Money Tree 2™.

In Jackpot Manor™, Manor, the newest GEN7™ video slot title from Aristocrat, players will find scary ghosts, ravens, bats and black cats roam the manor and around the tombstones out front.

This new game is available as a 50-line game or a 100-line game, in either one credit buys 1 line or one credit buys 2 lines configuration. Regular play is fun enough, but in Jackpot Manor, there are twists and turns waiting with every spin.

First, three Gate symbols trigger the Feature of Fate! Players choose their fate by touching one of 20 Question Marks to reveal a credit value, a Key or a Tombstone. If a credit value is revealed, the player wins that credit value. If a Key is revealed, they win the Jackpot Manor Free Game Feature. If a Tombstone is revealed, they win the Tombstone Bonus.

In the Jackpot Manor Free Game Feature, six free games are won. A glimmering candelabra displays the current multiplier for the free spins, and more free spins can be won during the feature. If three Gate symbols appear during the feature, then the player moves on to the Feature of Wealth. There, a selection screen will appear with 20 Question Marks. The player selects one of the Question Marks to reveal the credit value won.

In the Tombstone Bonus, a new selection screen will reveal 16 Tombstones. Touch a Tombstone to reveal credits, a multiplier or a Key. Skull & Crossbones are randomly buried along with four of the credit values, and the player collects awards until one of the Skull & Crossbones is revealed, winning all accumulated credit values multiplied by any multipliers found. If the Key was found, the Jackpot Manor Free Games Feature will immediately follow the completion of the Tombstone Bonus. Multipliers apply to credits won in the Tombstone Bonus only.

Aristocrat’s Money Tree 2™ is richly appointed with private jets, mansions, champagne, gold coins and, of course, money! Money Tree 2 is the first 13-button game on Aristocrat’s Gen 7™ platform, and it also features a 10 credit ante bet, which means players can supercharge this money tree with the power of Aristocrat’s Power Pay™.

Money Tree 2 has a rewarding bonus feature that gives players more choice in how they play their feature games. When 3 or more COIN appear, the player moves to a second screen feature where they can choose how they would like to play their bonus games; a less volatile option of 20 free games with x2 win multiplier, 15 free games with x3 win multiplier or an average volatile option of 10 free games with x5 win multiplier; 5 free games with x10 win multiplier; or a highly volatile option of 3 free games with x15 win multiplier. During the free game feature a BILL and/or COIN results in a random prize of 50, 20, 15, 10, 5 or 1 multiplied by the credits.

When a player chooses Power Pay, an optional +10 credit ante bet, a player gets a chance to win the “Shake The Tree” feature. A win occurs when playing Power Pay and three or more BILL appears. Players are awarded between 7 and 12 free games and a bonus spin. The number of BILL collected during the free game is added up to 15. For the bonus spin, each BILL collected will fall onto the reels and turn into a BILL symbol, substituting for all symbols except COIN. Money Tree 2 is available in two max bet options of 200 and 400.

COMPANY: SPIELO is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of high performance and innovative gaming machines, game software and central system solutions for government sponsored and commercial casino operators worldwide. Based in Canada, SPIELO holds 115 gaming licenses in jurisdictions throughout North America and Europe. SPIELO is 100 percent owned by Lottomatica Group, a market leader in the Italian gaming industry, one of the largest Lottery operators in the world based on total wagers, and a leading provider of lottery and gaming technology solutions worldwide. SPIELO is also an affiliate of GTECH, a leading gaming technology and services company.

SPIELO poised to enter Nevada gaming market

SPIELO has achieved a major milestone in its 20-year history. Earlier this year, the Nevada Gaming Commission unconditionally granted SPIELO gaming manufacturer and distributor licenses. The company expects to introduce its products to the Nevada market in 2011 after receiving the required product approvals from the Nevada Gaming Board’s Technology Division.

“By holding these licenses, SPIELO will be in a position to bring its cabinets, platforms and games, which have been successfully deployed in other jurisdictions, to the strategically-important Nevada market,” said SPIELO President and CEO Victor Duarte.

“Casino operators in the state will see great benefits from SPIELO’s two decades of experience delivering innovative, player-tested products.”

SPIELO intends to distribute its products, including the performance-driven prodiGi Vu™ cabinet, the powerful new sensys EP™ platform, and a library of compelling games, in Nevada through its affiliate, ATRONIC Americas.

ATRONIC Americas has held Nevada gaming manufacturer and distributor licenses for ATRONIC products since 1998. ATRONIC will maintain its licenses and continue to support its products currently operating in Nevada.

Established in June 1990, SPIELO has grown to become a world leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of high performance Electronic Gaming Machines (EGMs), games, systems and services. It has more than 30,000 gaming machines installed in 21 gaming jurisdictions throughout North America and Western Europe.

SPIELO’s winning track record can be attributed to both its superior customer service and its innovative products. Its current product line includes upright and slant top cabinets, the WinWave Vu™ VLT, and the prodiGi Vu, a cabinet aimed at both the government-sponsored and commercial casino markets. Combined with exciting player-driven games, these products meet or surpass industry standards on performance and reliability.

SPIELO’s core business is the government-sponsored gaming market, but following GTECH’s acquisition of SPIELO in 2004, it has expanded its expertise in the commercial casino sector. Since then, SPIELO games have been deployed in more than 120 casinos in North America.

In 2008, GTECH completed its acquisition of ATRONIC. ATRONIC brought a strong portfolio of licensed products, linked and wide-area progressive solutions, and a worldwide distribution network.

On the central system side, SPIELO has provided the most secure gaming systems with unparalleled support. As a result, it has won nine of the last 11 government-sponsored central system procurements. Recently, it was awarded the Maryland central system, and just went live in Kansas. SPIELO, together with GTECH, bring extensive and relevant customer experience as well as financial strength to support the installation and operation of central systems for gaming machines.

In 2006, GTECH Holdings Corporation was acquired by Lottomatica S.p.A. SPIELO is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lottomatica, one of the world's largest commercial lottery operators and a market leader in the Italian gaming industry. Lottomatica is majority owned by the De Agostini Group, a century-old publishing, media, and financial services company.

SPIELO is also a platinum member of the Gaming Standards Association™, and supports open industry standards such as Game to System® (G2S®) and System to System® (S2S®) protocols.
