“We are excited to announce an iGaming platform partnership with Bally Technologies which will provide more outstanding benefits and entertainment options for our loyal patrons,” said Conrad Punta del Este Resort & Casino General Manager Juan Eduardo Garcia. “Even more exciting is the fact that this online gaming platform will be offered internationally from our property in Uruguay, strengthening the link between the casino and our overseas customers.”
Through Bally's open iGaming Platform, Enjoy will offer their players online play-for-free poker, slot, and table-game content. This best-in-class content is provided by Bally as well as a number of other top content providers partnering with the Company. As a first step, the online games will be available at the OVO Nightclub & Dayclub, a sophisticated space in the hotel that will open in December.
“The online games will allow us to have a fluid communication with our customers when they return to their home countries, which will increase customer loyalty,” said Garcia. “Also, people who have not visited our facilities may use the platform to redeem bonuses for services that will draw them to Uruguay to live the Conrad experience.”
The online gaming offer will consolidate Conrad as the leading entertainment complex in Latin America, while helping to transform Enjoy into one of the top casino chains and entertainment centers globally.
Bally Technologies' Vice President of Business Development John Connelly said: “Our iGaming platform provides a number of advantages for Conrad Punta del Este. They will have the ability to utilize the technology to drive additional revenue to the property by enabling guests from around the world to stay in contact with the casino while playing for fun and earning exciting rewards. Bally will be providing a wireless and Internet infrastructure to enable a seamless gaming experience across multiple distribution channels.”
