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 announced that it will exhibit a large selection
of innovative gaming solutions at the FADJA trade show in Bogotá,
Colombia, April 11-12. This will be the fourth consecutive year Bally
has showcased its games and systems solutions at the South American show.
“We are extremely excited to showcase our new world-class licensed
brands and award-winning systems solutions in South America,” said Bally
Technologies’ Senior Director of Latin America Ricardo Regner.
“Attendees will experience our new compelling game content, trailblazing
play mechanics, and floor-wide bonusing applications that deliver an
incomparable entertaining experience across the casino floor on games
from any manufacturer.”
Bally will exhibit 30 unique game titles and a wide array of
cutting-edge systems technologies in stand #52.
Taking center stage is Michael Jackson King of Pop, which features one
of the most widely beloved and influential artists of all time in an
exciting, music-filled game on Bally’s new Pro Series™ V22/32 cabinet
with the custom, Pro surround-sound chair. Offering everything from
mystery wilds bonuses and free games bonus events and featuring hit
songs Bad, Beat It, Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, and Smooth
Criminal, this game is highlighted by a U-Spin™ Platinum Record
Bonus and video clips showcasing the performer. Michael Jackson is
represented exclusively for licensing by the Bravado International Group.
Inspired by Paramount Pictures’ 1978 American musical film about two
love-struck teens in a 1950s high school, GREASE
is Bally’s first double-play game, featuring two, 25-line games –
enabling the player to play two games at once. GREASE also fully
utilizes Bally’s iDeck™ touch-screen button deck in the “Dance Off” Free
Games feature in which players “dance” on the iDeck to win additional
free games or credits, and in the “How Cool Are You?” bonus in which the
player selects from one of four cars on the iDeck and the car moves up
the ladder; the winning character indicates the player’s “coolness”
factor and awards one of the four progressive jackpots or credit values.
Bally will display the award-winning Fish’n
for Loot™ and Total Blast™ on the Pro™ Upright cabinet. These
exciting new games introduce Bally’s U-Shoot™
virtual-shooting gallery bonus-game play mechanic in which the
player touches the iDeck to create weapons for “shooting” at targets on
the main game screens.
Also being shown is the arcade favorite SKEE-BALL® on the Pro™ V32
cabinet. The game, which recently won a Slot Floor Technology award for
innovation, includes a bonus feature in which players touch and slide to
throw the SKEE-BALL®, winning “tickets” that enable them to “Pick a
Prize” on the game that reveals credit awards.
All That Jazz™, also featured on Bally’s Pro V32 cabinet, has a
revolutionary iDeck feature called U-Play™, in which players touch and
play virtual piano keys. Players attempt to follow a melody by playing
the piano keys. Every note is converted into numbers which populate four
