The worldwide gaming innovator showcased nearly 300 games, cutting-edge systems technologies, and interactive solutions at G2E.
With a history dating back to 1932, Las Vegas-based Bally Technologies unveiled new world-class licensed brands, lots of new and compelling game content, several trailblazing new play mechanics, and new floor-wide bonusing applications.

Offering everything from mystery wilds bonuses and free games bonus events featuring Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough, Billie Jean, Beat It and Smooth Criminal, this game is highlighted by a U-Spin Platinum Record Bonus.

Floor-wide Player Entertainment: Slots 2012 IGT Bally
Featured prominently in Bally’s line-up is the 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 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.

Bally’s Elite Bonusing Suite (EBS), when combined with iVIEW DM, adds dramatic new levels of excitement and anticipation to the slot-play experience. The EBS applications deliver floor-wide, personalized promotions, second-chance-to-win events, and the ability for players to earn valuable rewards, all without interrupting play on the base game.

These interactive solutions enable players to spin wheels, select and root for their favorite contest-driven car or horse, get instant rewards on their birthday, and participate in instant floor-wide slot tournaments. Two new EBS apps created by Bally are Power Progressive Payline and Power Progressive Strike.
