  LAS VEGAS,NV, Apr 08 (Marketwired) -- 
Aristocrat again sits atop the Goldman Sachs Slot Managers Survey. In the
2013 independent survey of slot managers from across the United States,
Aristocrat's popular Buffalo(TM) video slot was named the best game for
the second year in a row. 

    Additionally, Aristocrat's Wicked Winnings II(TM) and Tarzan(R) Lord of
the Jungle(TM) games were also ranked in the top 10 of all slot games.

    Aristocrat's Oasis 360(TM) was named the most widely used player tracking
system for the second year in a row. Oasis 360 is now monitoring devices
at 286 casinos in North America.

    "We are absolutely thrilled with the results of the independent Goldman
Sachs survey. Of course we believe we make the industry's best games and
casino management system, and when slot managers across the United States
confirm those beliefs, it is very exciting indeed," said Aristocrat
Americas President Atul Bali.

    The survey forecast that 2013 will be bright for Aristocrat, with
operators indicating they will buy at least the same amount from
Aristocrat this year as they did last year because of the high quality
game performance. The survey reads, "Looking at why some slot managers
plan to buy more Aristocrat games, 'performance' was the number-one cited
reason at 54 percent, up strongly from 32 percent last year."

    In the Systems area, Aristocrat was at the top of the list when asked,
"Which manufacturer do you plan on switching to?" Aristocrat topped all
competitors, cited by 36 percent of respondents. 

    According to the survey's methodology, the 13th annual slot manager
survey was based on interviews with slot managers from 130 casinos in 26
states. The survey was commissioned by Goldman Sachs and conducted by a
third-party market research firm. Calls were made over several weeks,
starting January 2, 2013, and ending February 21, 2013, for a total of
175 calling hours.
