Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., the United States subsidiary of Aristocrat Leisure Limited (ASX: ALL), plans to showcase 140 new games and new gaming technology at the 2003 Global Gaming Expo (G2E).

Among the new offerings is its new licensed video slot Jeff Foxworth You Might Be A Redneck If ”¦, and a patented new Hyperlink progressive called Millioni$er that offers players the chance to win $1 million on a penny slot game.

To help launch the slot, comedian Jeff Foxworthy will make a guest appearance in Aristocrat’s exhibit on Tuesday, September 16.

"We have never launched such a large portfolio of games and systems technology, with over 70 percent of the games already approved and available for sale on the show floor," said Gavin Isaacs, president of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc.

The Jeff Foxworthy slot is the company’s first foray into licensed, branded games. The video slot is a hysterical, five-reel, 20-line game based on the famous comedian’s humor. The game features Foxworthy’s voice and likeness combined with an array of fun symbols including an outhouse, moonshine jug, beer can, and a vintage pickup truck.

ARISTOCRAT will launch new Jeff Foxworthy slot at G2E.

Through an ante bet random trigger Jeff Foxworthy’s face can appear to offer players one of five different bonus games.

Another exciting product slated for launch at G2E is Aristocrat’s newest Hyperlink progressive product, Millioni$er, which Âí­offers players the chance to win $1 million on a penny slot.

Millioni$er can function as both a single-site and wide-area progressive link. Like Aristocrat’s other Hyperlink products, Cash Express and Jackpot Carnival, the patented Millioni$er concept is featured on proven MKVI video slots and offers plenty of interactive game play with random bonuses, a high-hit frequency, and patented touch-screen-based second screen bonuses featuring spinning coin animations.

On the heels of its highly successful Mr. Cashman bonus game released at the 2002 G2E, Aristocrat will introduce for the first time its newest bonus game, Lil’ Lucy, a devilishly cute character who, through an ante bet random trigger can appear after any game to give players’ credit meters an extra boost.

Aristocrat will also release three new titles on its Reel Power concept, a globally patented unique game concept where players buy reels instead of lines. Reel Power games permit players to open up all visible positions on all bought reels to act as the payline so that 3, 4, and 5 of-a-kind wins can be won in a scatter formation and more coinciding wins can occur. Joining Aristocrat’s Reel Power series are Ruby Magic, Queen of Atlantis, and Whales of Cash.

Aristocrat created most of its groundbreaking gaming products such as Reel Power specifically for the growing penny slot market.

"Over 50 percent of our games on the G2E floor will be in the one-cent denomination, a direct reflection of the industry’s move to penny slots as a way to increase time on device and create more winning excitement for players," KentYoung, vice president of marketing, said.

At the 2003 G2E show Aristocrat will introduce another breakthrough video game concept ”” Arishinko ”” which blends the excitement of pachinko-style game play with the best features of traditional slot games. In Arishinko balls are launched, one at a time, to land in a prize bucket to trigger bonus prizes, multipliers, or entry into a second screen feature.
