Not often someone in the slot machine industry gets a gong in the Queen's honours list, but I just came across an article about Len Ainsworth getting an award in last year's Queen's Birthday Honours list. He received one of the top honours given to Australians (Member of the Order of Australia). Unusually, whereas most billionaires (Len is now worth $4 billion, having given his family his first 1.5 billion years ago) get their awards by giving lavishly to charity (which Len does by the way) his award citation reads, "for significant service to business and manufacturing", as well as "community service". Good for Len, you can't help but like him. He's been putting the public's money in his pocket for 70 years yet the Aus public loves Uncle Len. Now 95 he's announced he's cutting back work to 3 days a week. For more on Len's history go to this link http://www.penny-arcade.info/the-aristocrat-collection
