Taking center stage in Macau will be 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.

Michael Jackson is represented exclusively for licensing by the Bravado International group.
Grease, inspired by Paramount Pictures’ 1978 American musical film about two love-struck teens in a 1950s high school, is Bally’s first double-play game, featuring two, 25-line games - enabling the player to play two games at once. And Betty Boop’s Fortune Teller, the new companion game to the hit Betty Boop’s Love Meter, offers an unprecedented 15 bonuses at any bet. Fortune Teller also features the U-Spin fortune wheel, and an innovative U-Choose bonus that gives control to the players, letting them pick their preferred bonus.

Market-oriented game content
The company will exhibit a large number of Asian-themed titles including Blazing Dragon, Moon Dynasty, Rainbow Dragon, Tiger Treasures and Lucky Dragon on the sleek Pro V22/22 cabinet. Additionally, the games Sakura Festival and Dragon will be showcased on Bally’s imposing Pro V32 cabinet. And lastly, for the award-winning Pro Curve cabinet, featuring the industry’s only curved LCD to emulate spinning reels on a video slot; G2E Asia visitors will experience the titles Beijing Treasures and Great Wall of China among others.
It will also showcase the Golden Empire and Jeepney Joyride mystery progressive links. Golden Empire and Jeepney Joyride were developed locally for the Macau and Philippines gaming markets respectively. These mystery links feature themes targeted for the region and enable players to win one of the three or four randomly triggered progressive jackpots, depending on the operator’s configurations. Golden Empire and Jeepney Joyride link over standalone video slot machines allowing jackpots to be triggered randomly during game play; no max bet is required to win one of the progressive amounts.
Arcade-like play mechanics
Another highlight of Bally’s exhibit will be the award-winning game Fish’n for Loot and Total Blast. These exciting new games introduce Bally’s U-Shoot virtualshooting gallery bonus-game play mechanic in which the player touches the iDeck to create weapons for “shooting” at targets on the main game screens.
Likewise, Bally brings the arcade favorite SKEE-BALL to casinos in Macau on the Pro V32 cabinet. The game 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 bonus reels. At the end of the song, the reels are spun to reveal the base-game prize.
Powerful floor-wide player experience
Asia-Pacific casino operators will experience the innovation with live demonstrations of iVIEW Display Manager (DM), an interactive communication tool used by players and controlled by the gaming operator. This picture-in-picture style player-user-interface is backward compatible on any gaming device with a touch-screen display, and provides a way for casino operators to present self-service player-account access, marketing messages, and secondary bonus games on the main game screen – without interrupting play.
Another show-stopper will be Bally’s Elite Bonusing Suite (EBS), which, when combined with the iVIEW and iVIEW DM player-user-interfaces, adds dramatic new levels of excitement and anticipation to the slot-play experience. The EBS applications delivers floor-wide, interactive promotions, second-chance-to-win events, and the ability for players to earn valuable rewards, all without interrupting play on the base game.
The Bally Mobile team will also be on hand to give live demonstrations of the company’s cloud-based custom mobile apps and mobile websites for casino patrons and internal-facing apps for casino employees.
