Last week Bally Technologies Inc announced it has obtained initial agreements with Italian concessionaire B Plus Giocolegale Ltd to provide 1,000 games for the nascent Italian video lottery (VLT) industry, bringing Bally’s total initial agreements to the provision of 4,600 gaming devices in the country. To date Bally has entered into long-term agreements with three of Italy’s largest concessionaires − B Plus, HBG Group, and Sisal Slot − to provide VLT devices for the new video-lottery programme being implemented throughout Italy in public venues. Bally expects to begin delivery in mid-calendar year 2011.
Alessandro La Monica, Chief Executive Officer of B Plus commented, “We look forward to a long relationship with Bally. We believe Bally’s premium brand name and state-of-the-art technology solutions will create unique excitement in our casinos throughout Italy.”
“B Plus offers Bally access to the largest concessionaire in the exploding Italian VLT market, with high-quality operations throughout the country,” said Gavin Isaacs, Bally’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are optimistic that this initial order of 1,000 units will cement our long-term relationship and lead to further expansion of our partnership.”
With a 78-year history as one of the world’s leading developers of innovative gaming devices, Bally brings a new level of cutting-edge games to Italy’s VLT market, including the only mechanical-reel games for video lottery, and exciting features for players such as progressive jackpots, mystery bonuses, and game-in-game features.
In addition to innovative games, Bally will draw upon its expertise in central determination and VLT markets to provide a server-based central control and monitoring system designed specifically for Italy’s VLT program. The company also differentiates itself with unique and dramatic game cabinets, including the ALPHA Elite V32 with its 32-inch vertical touch-screen display; and the Digital Tower Series, reaching nearly seven feet tall and highlighted by dramatic top-box bonus features.
