Bally Expands Operations in Nevada

Slot and system manufacturer Bally Technologies announced that it has leased approximately 77,000 square feet of additional office space in Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada, creating new corporate campuses to accommodate company growth.

According to Bally Chief Operating Officer Gavin Isaacs, the company has added 36,000 square feet of space in Las Vegas, relocating 175 game development, advanced development and project management employees to the former Carter Burgess building on Bermuda Road.

“The property is leased over a long-term basis, which, including options, spans more than 20 years,” Isaacs said. “Along with a smaller building across Bermuda Road housing about 100 employees, we truly have created a Las Vegas campus environment in a great location in the Hughes Airport Industry Center five minutes from the airport. Recent upgrades to the landscape and main lobby are being followed by remodels of our showrooms and customer conference center during the early part of fiscal 2010.”

In Reno, a new 41,000-square-foot facility adjacent to Bally’s existing facility will provide more work space for R&D, customer service, product management and technical support and administrative personnel. The new space will provide Reno employees a campus-style environment similar to Las Vegas.
