LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bally
Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: BYI), a leader in slots, video machines,
applications, and networked and server-based systems for the global
gaming industry, today became the first company to receive an
interactive gaming supplier license from the Nevada Gaming Commission.
Nevada is the first state to adopt a statute allowing interactive gaming
and the first state to adopt regulations for online gaming of any kind.
“We are grateful to the State of Nevada for this opportunity,” said
Bally Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer Richard Haddrill. “We look
forward to Bally expanding its leadership role in this exciting new
arena of online gaming.”
At a meeting today, commissioners unanimously approved Bally
Technologies for a license to act as an interactive gaming system
manufacturer and service provider. This enables Bally to provide
business-to-business iGaming solutions for the state’s casino operators,
including wager-based online poker.
Bally Technologies is offering its iGaming platform technology and
content to casino operators. The Company’s iGaming platform features an
open architecture, which enables operators to choose from best-of-breed
content from a multitude of providers. The iGaming platform is also
designed for mobile integration and is ready to accommodate online
wagering beyond poker, such as casino table games, video slots, bingo,
social, and sports wagering when authorized.
Bally expects to make incremental investments in its interactive
division during fiscal 2013 and beyond to ensure leadership in
business-to-business iGaming support for the casino industry.
