Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Australia-based Aristocrat Leisure Limited, is venturing into the North American market in a big way.

Already the number two slot maker behind IGT, Aristocrat has launched more than 140 new games this year, many of them on the cutting edge of slot technology.

Its newest game is a video slot called Jeff Foxworthy You Might Be A Redneck If.

"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," said Gavin Isaacs, president of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. "Our game development teams have outdone themselves this year with an array of exciting games, progressives, and a full portfolio of value-added products, much of it developed in the United States specifically for the American market."

The Jeff Foxworthy You Might Be A Redneck If 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. Through an ante bet random trigger Jeff Foxworthy’s face can appear to offer players one of five different bonus games.

"Aristocrat has always been successful at creating its own ”˜brands’, such as our highly recognizable Mr. Cashman and our Cash Express Hyperlink," said Kent Young, vice president, Marketing. "Now we’ve expanded our own brands with Foxworthy, a name which enjoys widespread recognition and appeal."

Another exciting product from Aristocrat is its newest Hyperlink progressive product, Millioni$er, which offers 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 platforms 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, Aristocrat also introduced 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.

Featured on a selection of MKVI base games, Lil’ Lucy promises plenty of gaming action with five random, second-screen bonus games, a high-hit frequency, and incredible graphics.

Aristocrat also released three new titles on its Reel Power concept, a globally patented unique game in which 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.

Even though Aristocrat is know for and pioneered the video slot technology, it is still a leader in stepper slots. New stepper titles include Ducks In A Row, Liberty Bell, Bar Hopper, Mo Money, Monster Cash, and Make a Winner. The Company will also showcase five new poker games.
