ARISTOCRAT CREATES A ‘DOLLAR STORM’ AT GLOBAL GAMING EXPO By John G. Brokopp The annual Global Gaming Expo, the largest exposition of its kind, was held last month in Las Vegas. It is an opportunity for gaming developers, researchers, and manufacturers from around the world to get together for networking and to unveil their new product lines. The Expo also gives casino-goers a sneak peek at the new games and technologies that will be appearing on gaming floors across the nation in the near future. One booth that is always high on the list of attendees to visit is Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., creator of the some of the most prolific, imaginative, and engaging slot games found in casinos around the world. It seems Aristocrat never disappoints with the show-stoppers it unveils, including such iconic games as the wildly popular “Buffalo” franchise and most recently the

“Lightning Link” concept that has taken slot floors by storm. This year is no exception with the launch of the next revolution of “hold and spin” in the premier of “Dollar Storm”, yet another evolution of “Lightning Link”. “We’re excited to unveil Dollar Storm as the next evolution of slot play that sets Aristocrat apart in game development,” said John Hanlin, vice president of commercial strategy for Aristocrat Gaming Operations. “Dollar Storm combines the best award-winning aspects of both Lightning Link and Dragon Link, adds new titles, more denomination choices, and a $50,000 ‘rapid hit’ multi-site progressive for great jackpot action. In short, Dollar Storm incorporates all the attributes our players love with new enhancements sure to excite them.” Dollar Storm, which debuts in Aristocrat’s revolutionary MarsX cabinet with modular, interchangeable features to amplify game play, will offer five levels of progressive jackpots. At locations where the multi-site jackpot is available, the progressives can be won on any bet on any denomination played, an industry first. Four new games will be included in the Dollar Storm library, including “Emperors Treasure”, “Caribbean Gold”, “Egyptian Jewels”, and “Ninja Moon”. Each of them features a unique spin on the popular “free games” bonus.

Another new game Aristocrat is unveiling in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products is “Crazy Rich Asians”. It is heavily themed with sights and sounds from the 2018 blockbuster movie of the same name. Aristocrat has also licensed “Star Trek: The Next Generation” from CBS Consumer Products. “We are big fans of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, and our design and development teams have taken that inspiration and combined it with their passion for play,” Hanlin said. Slot fans will also be delighted to see their beloved Buffalo slot game introduced in the MarsX cabinet with “Buffalo Gold Revolution”, which integrates progressive jackpots into the Buffalo Gold brand for the first time, plus the addition of a bonus wheel.

ENTERTAINMENT John Michael Montgomery Friday, Nov. 8

Part of the ‘90s wave of honky-tonk hitmakers that ushered country music to new commercial heights, John Michael Montgomery made his name primarily as a romantic balladeer. Yet, despite his contemporary leanings, his vocal style remained cemented in country tradition. He started performing with his father’s band when he was just five years-old, and spent his youth performing in the local honky-tonk circuit until he was discovered at his favorite venue in Lexington, Ky. Montgomery released his debut album in 1992, and has since had more than 30 singles on the Billboard country charts and seven No. 1 hits including “I Love the Way You Love Me,” “I Swear,” “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)” and “The Little Girl.” Doors open at 7pm and show begins at 8pm. Tickets for Montgomery’s performance start at $25.

Paquita La Del Barrio Saturday, Nov. 30

Grammy nominated ranchera singer, songwriter and actress Paquita la del Barrio is taking the stage Nov. 30. Revered as a feminist icon, many of her most notable songs take a stance against Mexico’s male culture, making her wildly popular among female audiences. Her knack for storytelling and emphasis on body language and facial expressions paint a narrative that accompanies her anthology in such a way that is completely unique to her. Some of her most well-known hits include “Rata De Dos Patas,” “Cheque en Blanco” and “Tres Veces Te Engañe.” Doors open at 7pm and show begins at 8pm. Tickets for Paquita La Del Barrio’s performance start at $39.

NOVEMBER 2019

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19) The planet Mercury retrogrades in your house of finances helping you go examine past financial transactions. Stay conservative with you own spending but be open to new investments and business ideas. Check on flights and hotels as you will feel the urge to get out of town around the holidays.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19) Full Moon influences on the twelfth help you focus on future and long-term aspirations. This is not the time to stay stuck in the present but instead pull out your “bucket list” and get going! You will examine new ways of attracting more income that will coincide with having more free time.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 - MAY 20) You have been searching for the elixir of life and this month you may find it as you begin exploring the depths of your spirituality. The full Moon puts you out front on the social scene, networking and connecting with potential creative partnerships. Favorable Uranus steers you in a new life direction.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 19) The new Moon in Sagittarius on the 26th is the best time to make decisions about getting ahead professionally. The planet Mars begins causing some havoc on your health and daily operations at work around the 19th. It is important that you be vigilant and take your time on how to proceed.

GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 21) Mercury’s retrograde motion in Scorpio until the 20th is favorable for job hunting and straightening out any loose ends in your career. If you want to get a head start by making plans for the coming year just keep them flexible for some exciting job offers in December. Pace yourself and health rebounds.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20) Solar and lunar vibrations align in your ninth house helping you expand your mind and improve your skills. This is an empowerment cycle where you will also feel the need for growth and mental and spiritual stimulation. Take time to explore options before you make any major decisions on the 20th.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 22) You’ll be scratching your head looking for innovative ideas to increase resources. Avoid feeling stress during this transition and ask an earth sign to give you insight. This is a cycle of strategizing until you get all your plans organized and then make your moves. Expect a shift in our personal life.

A cosmic door opens presenting opportunities to purchase a new home or financing to decorate your current residence. Expect a call from the past. VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22) The Scorpio planets picks up the pace of everyday affairs as travel, communication, education and family endeavors take center stage. The planet Venus spotlights your income sector and increases social and romantic encounters. You will begin new projects as you feel more productive at work. LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 23) The planet Venus gives you a boost in the nick of time causing many wonderful events to begin falling into place. Look for good fortune and prosperity to counteract any difficult situations you’ve been wresting with. It’s time to explore your hidden potentials, image and start re-inventing yourself. SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 21) Happy Birthday Scorpio! The Cosmic alignment in your sign points to focusing on any personal goals you are planning in the coming year. The Mars transit on the 19th also helps you get in touch with enjoying the simpler things in life like hiking, exercising, or internet shopping. Watch details. SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21) The new Moon in your sign on the 26th ignites a cycle of privacy allowing you to heal and restore your energy before your birthday month. Spend some time alone or with someone special before you get too busy. Try not to allow distractions to get in the way of replenishing yourself holistically.
