During 2002, an extraordinary range of Aristocrat games was released to global markets. Aristocrat’s successful games software strategy is based on two key elements: the Company’s exciting bonusing products (Hyperlink™, Mr. Cashman™) and its portfolio of innovative and successful stand-alone games. ‘Specialty’ products: Bonusing brilliance! Hyperlink™ continued to outperform the competition in virtually all of the venues in which it is installed. In particular, Hyperlink™ has proved successful in the United States where it continues to win over players and customers. Mr. Cashman™, launched in the United States during 2002, is also performing well and is proving as successful in the United States as it has been in Australia. Mr. Cashman™ was named as one of the top twenty ‘most innovative gaming products’ by Casino Journal ® during the year. Two entirely new bonusing products, the 50 cent/one dollar King Cashman™ and the 5/10 cent Lucky Devil™, were released in Australia during the year and are currently being rolled out in other jurisdictions. Outstanding ‘stand-alone’ games! Aristocrat’s game designers developed and launched a record number of imaginative new stand-alone games during 2002 including a new range of 25 line games which proved particularly successful wherever installed. These included Diamond Eyes™, Black Brumby™ and Peacock Magic™. Other successful stand-alone games launched during the year included, Queen of the Nile Special Edition™, Venetian Nights™, King of the Nile™, Helen of Troy™, Mystic Mermaid™, and Big Red™. The Reel Power™ games, Choy Sun Doa™ and Snap Shot™, were released in Australia during 2002 and have performed exceptionally well. Reel Power™ games permit players, if they wish, 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. Breakthroughs! A number of entirely new ‘breakthrough’ game concepts were developed during the year. These included Crazy Balls™, Arishinko™ and King Penguin™. In Crazy Balls™, balls purchased by the player (a maximum of twenty) drop past a series of obstacles and diverters to land in buckets and other collection devices that determine the outcome (for example, balls landing in ‘bonus spinner’ may trigger additional balls or bonus prizes). 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. King Penguin™, an entirely new 20 line game concept, was released in NSW in December. The King Penguin™ game revolves around an interactive Big Freeze™ ‘top box’ feature board game (similar to traditional ‘board game’ concepts). Aris
