Aristocrat's Tarzan Lord of the Jungle Slot Makes S. Dakota Man Nearly $280,000 Richer Instantly

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - Tarzan swung in and dropped more than a quarter million dollars on a royally lucky man playing Aristocrat Technologies' new Tarzan® Lord of the Jungle™ video slot this past weekend. Ralph Watts of South Dakota was playing the new Tarzan Lord of the Jungle slot game at the Royal River Casino & Hotel in Flandreau, S.D., when he hit the grand progressive jackpot for $279,439.19!

Watts had only played about $80 before a regular Friday out turned into what he called a "Happy Day!" It's unclear if his win was accompanied by his version of the Tarzan Yell™.

"Players across the U.S. absolutely love Tarzan Lord of the Jungle," said Dallas Orchard, Aristocrat V.P. of Gaming Operations. "Casinos across the country who have Tarzan are reporting record response to the game, and tell us repeatedly it has become an instant player favorite."

Aristocrat's Tarzan Lord of the Jungle video slot game brings the myth and fantasy of the famous tale to life with dazzling graphics, stereo sound, seven high-hit frequency bonus features and a four-level progressive with a giant top jackpot of $250,000!

Tarzan Lord of the Jungle is a fast-paced penny video slot, configured as a 30 line + 20 credit ante bet game with a 50-credit minimum bet and a 150-credit maximum bet. The big screen style action stretches top to bottom on Aristocrat's incredible VERVEhd™ monitor, named one of the "Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Products" by Casino Journal magazine. VERVEhd's 31.5" portrait monitor dramatically showcases Tarzan Lord of the Jungle's GEN7X™ capabilities in high def (1920x1080) graphics, 3D panoramic digital audio and player-adjustable sound. The action extends right to players' fingertips thanks to Aristocrat's amazing Nteractiv™ LCD Programmable button technology.

Tarzan Lord of the Jungle has four progressive jackpots that include Mini, starting at $10; Minor, starting at $30; Major, starting at $500; and Grand, starting at $250,000. Tarzan Lord of the Jungle's exciting bonus features include: Tarzan, Stampede, Kerchak Free Games, Monkey, and Progressive Wheel.
