Games That Connect With Your Players
Bally's TITANIC video slots deliver a fully interactive and cinematic experience centered on the iconic star-crossed lovers from James Cameron's TITANIC, one of the highest-grossing films in history. Featuring scenes from the film and music from the blockbuster phenomenon, TITANIC integrates many of Bally's proven play mechanics, three mystery features, and a wide-area progressive top award. The main attraction U-Spin™ Bonus Wheel, resembling a ship's helm, awards credits as well as one guaranteed feature – Heart of the Ocean Free Games, Make It Count Free Games, or The Safe Bonus.
The Magic of David Copperfield
The world's greatest illusionist delivers an extraordinary experience in The Magic of David Copperfield video slots, featuring Mystery Wild Reels™, Magic Mystery Wilds™, and a life-changing wide-area progressive top award. Magical bonuses are unleashed through the “Death Saw”, which awards credits, the progressive jackpot, Flying Free Games, or Levitation Free Games showing incredible video of illusions from Copperfield's legendary performances.
ZZ Top Live from Texas
Classic rock meets modern slot play as the famous American blues-rock trio delivers a host of bonuses, play mechanics, and progressives in ZZ Top Live from Texas. The game awards Just Got Paid mystery credit prizes or wheel spins to win credits or one of three free-games bonuses − Live from Texas, Sharp Dressed Man, or Cheap Sunglasses. Three any-bet progressives add to the excitement. ZZ Top Live from Texas headlines some of the band's greatest hits, including Sharp Dressed Man, Cheap Sunglasses, Just Got Paid, Legs, and Gimme All Your Lovin' as well as loads of concert footage that will keep players rockin'.
Grease™ Pink Ladies™
Rizzo, Frenchy, Marty, and Jan deliver the power of “pink” in this nostalgic trip back to the 1950s at Rydell High School – featured in the hotly anticipated sequel to Bally's Grease video slot game. Grease Pink Ladies features three bonus experiences, random wilds, multipliers, and a gigantic top award. Players experience the Pink Rules, Hand Jive Kisses, and Frenchy Heartbreaker bonuses, complete with clips and music from the 1978 film.
New and Proven Platforms Connect Exciting Gameplay with New Play Mechanics
Bally's game portfolio for the Pro Series™ cabinets again expands as Bally unveils a host of new games featuring engaging play mechanics, clever themes, and animated graphics that deliver an exceptional play experience. More than 260 of these games and more than 10 new play mechanics will be revealed at G2E for the global Class 3, Class 2, central determination, lottery, and video-lottery markets.
Taking center stage at the show are two new additions to Bally's Pro Series™ cabinet family – the groundbreaking ALPHA 2™ Pro Series™ Wave with the industry's first 40-inch concave LCD, and the Pro V55 Jumbo platform, a nine-foot stunner with a breathtaking 55-inch vertical touchscreen display.
Bally Systems Connect Players to Excitement, Rewards, and Faster Service
At G2E 2013, Bally showcases a variety of its advanced systems solutions that not only increase revenue operating efficiencies and drive floor-wide excitement, but connect players to rewards and promotions through multiple channels – land based, mobile, and online.
Bally Enterprise Progressive System™ Lets Casinos Easily Manage Progressives
A highlight will be the Bally Enterprise Progressive System™ (BEPS), enabling casinos to manage and audit their progressives from one central location. Secure, robust, and easy to use – BEPS is perfect for replacing or consolidating existing progressive system and controller offerings into one powerful system.
Continued Excitement with Elite Bonusing Suite™ (EBS)
Adding excitement and activity to Bally's Systems exhibit will be the award-winning Elite Bonusing Suite, including Virtual Racing™, Virtual Racing NASCAR®, and DM Tournaments™, which have powered five world record-setting events. At this year's show, Bally unveils a new addition to its EBS portfolio − Bonus Tournaments™. This pioneering DM Tournaments feature enables casinos to run floor-wide tournaments in which both the base game and the tournament game can be played at the same time, ensuring that there is no interruption in player-wagering activity.
Super Slotline™ Puts Advanced Applications on Legacy Networks
Before the pioneering Super Slotline, casinos with serial floors were unable to use advanced technology such as iVIEW Display Manager™ (DM) and EBS to run powerful, floor-wide promotions and events that drive increased coin-in, new player's club registrations, tremendous player excitement, and even power world records. At G2E, casino operators with legacy networks will see first-hand how they can easily convert to high-speed Ethernet networked floors that enable the use of the latest in powerful floor-wide technologies.
Service Tracking Manager™ Improves Patron Service via Mobile Interface
Visitors to Bally's exhibit will get hands-on experience with Service Tracking Manager™ (STM), a leading-edge automated dispatch system that interfaces with handheld smart devices such as the iPhone® and iPad® for faster routing of casino floor personnel to patrons. At G2E, new STM features on display will include Jackpot Processing, which enables casino staff to verify and redeem jackpots at the machine. Also new − the Patron Registration feature allows casino staff to register new players on the floor by scanning their ID and giving them a players-club card instantly.
Bally Interactive Connects Players to Casino at Home, Work, and on the Go
Bally's i-Gaming and mobile solutions are designed to give casinos a single view of the player across online, mobile, and traditional brick-and-mortar gaming platforms and provide complete cross-platform gaming experience for both free play and wagering.
At G2E 2013, Bally will showcase its full suite of interactive solutions including the integration of traditional land-based and iGaming systems for enhanced cross-platform bonusing, player tracking, and business intelligence; the Bally iGaming Platform for Internet and mobile casinos; and the Bally Mobile Platform for concierge casino apps and mobile websites.
Casino operators will experience Bally's open iGaming Platform, which enables casinos to choose from best-of-breed play-for-free and wager-based poker, table games, video slots, bingo, and sports betting content from some of the most popular and proven content vendors in the industry, including more than 12 of Bally Technologies' own popular and proven land-based games.
Single View Connects Back-End System with Mobile, iGaming Platforms
At G2E, Bally executives will share their vision of the connected casino through the integration of Bally's core casino systems and player-tracking systems with its secure and regulated cloud-based iGaming platform and mobile platform. This enables Bally to deliver a single view of the player at the casino, at home, online, or on the go – enabling casinos to view, track, reward, and communicate with their patrons regardless of which channel they are using to experience the casino.
