Research Companies: Aristocrat Leisure Limited
Gaming machines from Aristocrat Leisure appeal to both the idle rich and not-so-rich. The company ranks as the world's #2 manufacturer of slot machines (after International Game Technology ), supplying clubs, hotels, casinos, and bars in nearly 60 countries with casino games and gaming systems. Aristocrat also makes and sells accessories, such as LCD signs, used by casinos.
The company acquired Las Vegas-based casino information systems maker Casino Data Systems (now Aristocrat Technologies ) in 2001. The family of founder Leonard Ainsworth owns about 40% of Aristocrat through a variety of trusts.
