Aristocrat's "Michael Godard's Rockin' Olives" Video Slot to Make Atlantic City Debut at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

Michael Godard to Appear at August 11 Premiere

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - Aristocrat Technologies' Michael Godard's Rockin' Olives™ video slot game has become a sensation across North America, winning the hearts of players and creating even more fans for America's best-selling artist, Michael Godard. Now the video slot is coming to Atlantic City, making its premiere at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on August 11.

While the slot rocks the casino floor, a welcome celebration will take place in Borgata's famed rock-and-roll tequila bar, Gypsy Bar, starting at 8 p.m. that night. Godard will be mingling with the crowd, while alt-rockers Kristen and The Noise perform live. The experience is complete with complimentary Three Olives cocktails, along with giveaways throughout the night. The event is open to all casino guests age 21 and over.

Michael Godard's Rockin' Olives is a new video slot game from Aristocrat, based on Godard's world-famous olives. Michael Godard's Rockin' Olives tells the story of the ultimate rock concert, complete with guitar and drum-playing olives and sexy strawberry fans. Godard hand-painted each frame of each reel.

Michael Godard's Rockin' Olives is housed in Aristocrat's award-winning VERVEhd™ cabinet. Sleek, modern and a work of art in itself, the cabinet completely changes the game forever with twin 21.5" HD monitors, panoramic digital audio, Nteractiv™ LCD buttons and revolutionary ergonomic design that is dramatically more comfortable for players.

About Michael Godard
Michael Godard, known as the "Rockstar of the Art World," is a global, top-selling artist, creator and philanthropist. His world of art invites viewers into his lighthearted perspective of life, with animated olives, grapes and dancing strawberries. His unique portrayal of fun is an exciting combination of imagination and subtle humor -- it's a re-definition of art as something that can come with a punch line. Michael dedicates a portion of the proceeds from his artwork to causes he believes in. Through these efforts and his imaginative, playful artwork, he lives the philosophy of making an impact on everyone he meets. In true rock star fashion, Michael's got a huge fan base -- one that includes movie stars, rock stars and private collectors.
