Slot makers increase investment in R&D

(Macau).- With casinos demanding more advanced, networked, interactive and centrally managed slots, manufacturers are boosting their budgets for research and development, according to the Macau Business January 2011 issue.


lots are constantly evolving and manufacturers need to keep up, says Bally Technologies’ Asia-Pacific vice-president, Cath Burns.

“It’s necessary to reinvent yourself over and over again, and companies like Bally spend a lot of money hiring people just to think about where to innovate,” she says.

In the third quarter of 2010 alone, Bally spent us$ 21.4 million on research and development, 10 % more than a year before. The sum was equivalent to 13 % of the company’s third quarter revenue.

IGT spent us$ 52.7 million on research and development in the same period, 2.3 % more than a year before.
