Foxwoods, OLG Pick Bally Systems

Slot, table and system supplier Bally Technologies reached agreements with two gaming entities for use of its proprietary systems.

The company announced an agreement with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) to provide the central casino gaming system solution throughout the province.

In conjunction with the OLG’s modernization, OLG will be implementing Bally’s system technology to align and comply with “Conduct and Manage” responsibilities under Canada’s Criminal Code, and implement enhanced responsible gambling tools to the casino gaming facilities and operations across Ontario.

“It’s an honor to continue and expand our partnership with OLG to provide leading technology gaming systems throughout the province,” said Bally Technologies Senior Vice President of North American Sales and Corporate Marketing Robert Parente. “This agreement demonstrates our continued commitment to the needs of the Canadian gaming market, and we are very excited about working together to help OLG fulfill its modernization.”

Later in the month, Bally Technologies announced that Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino will utilize the Bally Mobile Concierge. The agreement is part of a continuing partnership between Bally and Foxwoods.

“We are excited to use Bally’s mobile platform to offer outstanding new benefits to our customers,” said Brian Charette, Foxwoods’ vice president of information technology. “Bally is a great partner that worked with us to create a custom app that will enable us to engage and market to our patrons before, during, and after their visit.”

Bally’s cloud-based mobile platform enables casino operators to create and easily update special content and offers, and immediately distribute the information to targeted potential customers. Bally has created more than 150 features for casino operators to incorporate into their apps, allowing them to entertain, educate, interact, market, and learn from their guests and players.

Guests at Foxwoods can use the cloud-based mobile app to book shows, make restaurant reservations, check player club point balances, view promotions, and much more. The app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and other devices.
