Innovation and imagination across the range in Aristocrat Europe’s new Autumn releases

London, September 8th, 2008: Aristocrat Technologies has demonstrated its commitment to continuous innovation with the release of a new range of games for Europe. The Autumn 2008 collection includes eight new slot games, a fresh twist for Zorro® HyperlinkT and an exciting new feature concept, ‚Free Game BankT‘.

Dream of the Red Chamber

Offering players a new gaming experience and increased flexibility in their gaming technique, Free Game Bank is an original feature incorporated into Aristocrat’s latest XCiteT game, Dream of the Red ChamberT. When Free Games are awarded, players can choose to play them immediately, play some and bank some, or save them all for later use, whilst a unique Free Game on-screen meter and Stored Free Game screen allows players to keep track of their Bank tally. The feature is awarded on Dream of the Red Chamber when any three or more Pagoda symbols appear, with all prizes won during free games tripled.

The new range includes two further games being added to the XCite collection; 5 KoiT joins Aristocrat’s growing Power PayT portfolio and the 100 Line line-up is bolstered with the arrival of Heart of VegasT.

Another 100 Line game, Butterfly KissT is one of three product launches newly developed specifically for the hi-spec ViridianT/Gen7 platform, the others being Show Me The GameT (Power PayT) and Polynesian PearlT (Reel PowerT). The Autumn arrivals also add two proven Aristocrat titles to the Viridian library: Indian DreamingT (Reel PowerT) and the 50 Line game 50 LionsT.

The highly successful Zorro Link swashbuckling adventure has been updated to offer even greater variety: a new game, Zorro and Lady Rawhide, raises to four the number of playable alternatives on this XCite Hyperlink.

Customers are advised to contact their Aristocrat Regional Sales Manager to check the approval status of individual games within their respective territory.
