10/10/2012| 09:15am US/Eastern
Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: BYI), a leader in slots, video machines,
applications, and networked and server-based systems for the global
gaming industry, today announced it has reached an agreement to provide
its iGaming platform to Mohegan Sun's casinos in Uncasville, Conn. and
Wilkes-Barre, Pa., adding to the growing portfolio of online gaming
sites the Company develops for casino operators.
The agreement will enable Mohegan Sun to offer play-for-free online
poker in Connecticut and Pennsylvania in preparation for online wagering
regulation. Mohegan Sun selected Bally Interactive following a six-month
"We're thrilled to continue our successful partnership with Bally
Technologies," said Mitchell Etess, Chief Executive Officer for the
Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. "Our goal is always to provide our
guests with the best gaming and entertainment offerings, and we believe
iGaming is the next step in fulfilling the demand for regulated online
play when customers aren't able to be on property. Further, we believe
this exciting new offering will entice new players to visit our
properties and experience all that we have to offer."
Bally's iGaming platform offers casino operators a number of benefits.
The platform's open architecture enables operators to choose from
best-in-class content from a multitude of providers. Additionally,
content is hosted, limiting the infrastructure required. The iGaming
platform is also designed for mobile integration and is ready to
accommodate online gaming beyond poker, such as casino table games,
video slots, sports betting, and social.
Earlier this year, Bally Technologies became the first company licensed
in the United States as an interactive gaming system manufacturer and
"We are proud of our long-term strategic partnership with Mohegan Sun,"
said Bally Technologies' Chief Executive Officer Richard Haddrill. "This
partnership will demonstrate the advantages of having an open iGaming
platform, which allows for best-in-class content."
