(Photo: Business Wire) The casino will be providing its loyal guests with several exciting EBS applications, including Virtual Racing™ NASCAR®, Virtual Racing, and DM Tournaments™. Apache Casino Hotel is the first property in Oklahoma to feature a combination of trailblazing applications. “Bally's EBS applications will bring extra excitement to the casino floor,” said Randall Sanner, General Manager of Apache Casino Hotel. “These tools will give our guests yet another reason to visit our property. We are delighted to be the first in the state to offer these thrilling second-chance opportunities to players. Additionally, the ability to add EBS floor-wide gives us the opportunity to expand offers to any game on the casino floor.” Bally's Virtual Racing promotional tool has already been a huge hit, creating floor-wide excitement on casino floors across America, driving coin-in, carded play, new player's club signups, and tremendous excitement. Virtual Racing NASCAR takes it to the next level by enabling players to select one of eight famous NASCAR drivers: Clint Bowyer, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin, or Martin Truex Jr. from the touch-screen on the iVIEW™ or iVIEW Display Manager™ (DM) player-user-interface. Players choose their favorite driver and cheer him across the finish line. DM Tournaments is the ultimate form of community gaming, enabling casino operators to almost instantly turn slot machines on their casino floor into tournament games – with no device downtime or lost revenue. The tournaments are displayed on Bally's iVIEW DM player-user-interface. Last February, DM Tournaments powered the world's largest slot tournament at Pechanga Casino & Resort in Temecula, Calif., drawing crowds of thousands and creating frenzied excitement across the casino. “We are very proud to partner with Apache Casino Hotel in implementing Elite Bonusing Suite systems solutions,” said Bally Technologies' Vice President of Services and Support Sridhar Laveti. “It is especially exciting that casino patrons in Oklahoma can now experience the fun and excitement of events like Virtual Racing that offer second ways to win and increased anticipation during game play.” About Bally Technologies, Inc.
