ts adjacent booths number 3540 and 3655 cover a total of 245 sqm and will feature an impressive showcase of video slots; reel-spinning slots; wide-area progressives; specialty games; licensed titles; multiple systems products and platforms for international markets; group-play games; advanced slot and systems bonusing technology; system-based games and Networked Floor of the Future technology.
“The depth and variety of new, best-in-class video and stepper slots we are presenting at this year’s IGE show underscores our commitment to aggressively expand our presence in the international gaming market,” said Gavin Isaacs, Bally Technologies’ Chief Operating Officer. “This is further demonstrated by the opening of our new European headquarters in Amsterdam, new offices in Slovenia and South Africa, and our expanded operations in Buenos Aires, Argentina to serve the growing Latin America market.”
An array of specialty games and an assortment of new video slots will be featured at Bally’s IGE booth. One of the highlighted game concepts will be new Power Strike series. This is an exciting new concept in progressive video slots that allows operators to build in the retail cost of a luxury item– such as a motorcycle, boat, car or vacation holiday– into the actual game math itself, allowing the cost of the item to be configured into the top jackpot award as if it were cash.
Additionally, it will feature new games that build upon the success of the popular Quick Hit five-reel steppers, including Quick Hit Golden Bell, Quick Hit Wild Blue, Quick Hit Wild Red and Quick Hit White Fire. The success of the Quick Hit Platinum games on the dramatic V32 vertical upright video slot will also be highlighted with the new Quick Hit Diamonds games: Quick Hit Diamonds Wild Blue and Quick Hit Diamonds White Fire.
A new variation of the successful Power Progressives games will be spotlighted in IGE booth with the international debut of the new Power Progressive Platinum on the V32 with three new game titles: White Gold, Double Wild Ros and Rich and Famous. Other Power Progressive titles on display will include Double Dynamite, Wild Winners and 5X 10X. Bally will also spotlight Single Roulette and Double Zero Roulette on the ALPHA Elite V32 platform and Tower of Power.
It will introduce its new DualVision multi-player gaming platform based on the company’s popular CineVision gaming cabinet. It features a single, segmented video display, bench seating for two, and a common bill acceptor specifically designed for “couples” or “friends” play. The cabinet on display will feature the new Two for the Money game.
One of the more significant games on display at Bally’s IGE booth will be the new suite of Bally’s groundbreaking GameMaker HD multi-game platform on the ALPHA Elite V20/20 video platform. This new version of this award-winning multi-game product features a unique game set designed especially for international gaming markets.
A seductive new addition to its blockbuster lineup of Playboy-branded games will be new Playboy video slot, which will be featured on V32 video slot platform, featuring an eye-popping 32-inch vertical touch-screen video display. The game showcases a bevy of beautiful Playmates in its eye-catching bonus round.
Bally will also highlight a series of new “bankable” slot collections designed to take the guesswork out of having to bank games on the casino floor. Designed to work together as a theme for maximum profitability and impact, these packaged games include the Monkey series that capitalizes on the popularity of Bally’s top-performing Golden Monkey video slot. Game titles in this series include Monkey’s Fortune, Golden Treasures and Magic Monkey. Other examples of bankable games include the Armada Series, consisting of Armada England and Armada Netherlands and the Treasures Series, featuring such titles as Savannah Treasures and Arctic Treasures.
The firm will demonstrate a variety of systems products designed for international gaming markets. “We continue to strengthen our leadership position in providing Systems solutions to the global gaming industry and have taken solid steps toward becoming a world-class technology provider,” said Ramesh Srinivasan, Bally Technologies’ Executive VP Systems. “We are achieving significant market-share gains in Europe, Macau, South America, the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands because we offer a system solution for every market and every size of gaming operation.”
Central to Bally’s systems showcase will be live demonstrations of Bally Business Intelligence, a powerful data analytics and visualization solution. This advanced application allows casinos to analyze and visualize data gathered throughout their operation to gain a better understanding of their customers through improved knowledge, data, and reporting on gaming floor performance; player and game interaction; player behavior and trending; and player loyalty and value.
Bally’s MCC Systems group, based in Nice, France, will demonstrate its comprehensive slot accounting and slot management systems. The company will also display Multi-Connect, the new internationalized SDS on Microsoft Windows, and Casino Marketplace (CMP) systems.
As part of its iVIEW player network, Bally will showcase its award-winning iVIEW Display Manager, which allows gaming operators to create a picture-in-picture player window on the main game screen, the top game display, and even the overhead display. This is done through the iVIEW processor rather than the game processor, which would require separate regulatory approvals and complex development and integration efforts.
Also on display will be Bally’s G2S-compliant Download Configuration Manager, which allows casinos to download and configure its cabinets with new game content as well as adjust a wide variety of game configurations including denomination, minimum bet and hold percentages.
