Bally Technologies' annual Systems User Conference is the Company's premier event for customers who want to get the most out of their investment in Bally's technology solutions. The two-day event celebrates a decade of Bally Systems User Conferences and is highlighted by hands-on training, technology and product sessions, real-world customer case studies, workshops, a partner expo and exhibits, and multiple networking and social events.
“Driving Innovation,” this year's conference theme, demonstrates how Bally's trailblazing technology solutions can connect invitees' entire gaming world.
“We're honored to host our conference for the first time ever on the East Coast with Mohegan Sun, one of the largest casinos in North America and a casino operator that has embraced Bally's many systems solutions and has been on the cutting edge of using our new technology,” said Bally Technologies' Bruce Rowe, Senior Vice President of Sales Support and Customer Consulting.
Over the past month, Mohegan Sun has used Bally's technology solutions to power three GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Titles. Using Bally's iVIEW Display Manager™ (DM) player-user-interface display combined with the Elite Bonusing Suite™'s DM Tournaments™ solution for floor-wide slot tournaments, Mohegan Sun broke two world records April 27, 2013 for the “World's Largest Slot Tournament” and “The Most Slot Machines Running the Same Game Simultaneously.” Two weeks later, using Bally's Elite Bonusing Suite Virtual Racing NASCAR® technology, Mohegan Sun achieved a third world record May 11, 2013 for the “Most People Playing a Casino Virtual Racing Game” with 4,230 players selecting their favorite NASCAR driver and cheering him across the finish line for free-play prizes.
Attendees of Bally's Systems User Conference 10 will participate in online events, use the UC10 mobile concierge application for information and fun, and experience the excitement and anticipation of DM Tournaments, Virtual Racing NASCAR, and other promotions live at Mohegan Sun – solutions that gaming operators are using to drive coin-in, carded play, new player's club signups, and tremendous levels of excitement and anticipation.
“This conference is an event that every casino operator can benefit from and take away vital information to help them connect their entire gaming enterprise, from land-based systems and gaming machines to mobile applications and free-play websites − to the inevitable advent of online and mobile gaming,” Rowe said. “Bally offers tools and experts to help casinos connect it all, ensuring one view of the patron and maximum return-on-investment.”
The Systems User Conference 10 keynote speech will be delivered by NFL Hall of Famer Howie Long, one of football's best defensive linemen who spent his entire 13-year career with the Los Angeles Raiders and helped the team to a Super Bowl XVIII win by posting a career-best 13 sacks and registering five Super Bowl tackles. After his football career ended, Long has continued his success as an actor and one of the top NFL analysts.
