               widescreen release across Europe
London, 30th November 2010


Aristocrat Technologies has brought forward plans to roll out its new VIRIDIAN™ WS
cabinet throughout Europe, announcing that virtually all new casino games shown at
the forthcoming ICE exhibition (25-27 January, Earls Court, London) will be presented
in the new widescreen format. The majority of games on stand 3415 will be available
for immediate release, subject to regulatory approvals.


First unveiled at the National Indian Gaming Association’s 2010 Tradeshow (San Diego) in April,
VIRIDIAN™ WS has made fanfare appearances at major trade exhibitions around the world,
including G2E Asia (Macau) in June, SAGSE (Buenos Aires) in October and culminating in its
primary presentation at last month’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.


Aristocrat’s General Manager – Europe, Daniel Lindsay stated: “European casino operators may
be the last geographical group to witness this phenomenon, but thanks to a major rescheduling
of our global development and manufacturing processes they will now be among the first to have
the opportunity of placing VIRIDIAN WS on their gaming floors, perhaps as much as six months
earlier than initially planned.”


Running on Aristocrat’s powerful GEN 7™ platform, the widescreen incarnation of the award-
winning VIRIDIAN™ series is designed to give players an amazing new gaming experience,
offering improved ergonomics, easier accessibility and larger screens.


Key features of VIRIDIAN™ WS include high resolution recessed 22-inch LCD monitors, a new
easier to reach location for card readers, a reduced belly area for improved leg room, enhanced
ambient lighting around the edge of the cabinet, a new upgraded sound system with speaker
location optimised for improved acoustic reception and a new 13-button low-profile button panel.


Aristocrat’s new Nteractiv™ LCD programmable button technology also provides an optional
extra to put more interactivity at players’ fingertips. The industry’s first full-colour LCD display
buttons can rotate messaging to attract players and deliver further instructions or simply wish
them luck when playing, whilst the Big Bash button can feature bespoke animations.

Daniel Lindsay concluded: “Our innovations for 2011 are not just confined to new hardware. We’ve
been building for the future and now we’re ready to unleash a dazzling array of new games and
exciting new game categories in Europe, the size and spread of which has never been seen before in
Aristocrat’s ICE portfolio. Furthermore, this new generation of games has one overriding advantage
over other offerings in the market; implicit within every game is one of Aristocrat’s core competencies
– a complex maths model that is second to none.”
