Bally announces Fantasy Springs contract

Slot and system manufacturer Bally Technologies, Inc. announced that it has signed a comprehensive contract with Fantasy Springs Resort Casino near Palm Springs, California, to provide bonusing technology, a table games management solution and 2,000 iVIEW slot machine displays.

    The iVIEW displays in all of the casino’s slot machines will allow Fantasy Springs to offer its players “Bally Power Winners,” a configurable random progressive jackpot technology that rewards players using their player’s club cards.          The iVIEW displays will also allow Fantasy Springs to become the first casino in the world to launch “powercash,” a patented technology that will change the way players access their funds on the casino floor.

    The first product from a joint venture with Cash Systems, Inc. and Scotch Twist, powercash will work with Fantasy Springs’ Bally Power Bank technology to enable casino patrons to enroll in the casino player’s club program and to access funds from their desired credit, debit or checking accounts while sitting at the gaming device.

    Players will be able to request funds from the designated financial account, transfer those funds into their player’s club account and then transfer credits down to the gaming device.

          Fantasy Springs’ contract with Bally also includes the TableView technology from Bally Table Management Systems, allowing the casino to utilize automated pit tracking at its 40 table games.
