Bally Launches Interactive Website, Windows-Based SDS

Slot manufacturer Bally Technologies announced the launch of a significantly enhanced and redesigned corporate website,, to better serve the evolving needs of the global gaming industry.

“Customer feedback played a big role in developing our new website,” said Dan Savage, Bally’s vice president of marketing. “It was of paramount importance that we give our customers the online tools they need to make their job easier. That’s why we focused on creating more robust and user-friendly features such as advanced search capabilities for par sheets, SMI numbers, and other key information our customers need to access online.”

In addition to a new graphical look and feel, the revamped website also features enhanced presentation of the latest stepper and video-slot portfolio, including a “Games Showroom” with game-play videos. There also is a comprehensive systems section with information on all Bally Systems products as well as professional services and training programs.

Bally also announced the release of a new Windows-based version of its flagship SDS slot management and accounting system.

The new version of SDS supports the Microsoft Windows software platform, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and an entirely new, streamlined and easy-to-use Windows-based graphical user interface.

The new system, called SDS Version 11.0, has been submitted to regulators in Nevada, and according to the company, it should be generally available to operators in the spring. According to a company statement, “SDS Version 11.0 will deliver flexibility, easy maintainability, internationalization, and horizontal and vertical scalability that will make systems administration easier for any size of casino operation.”
