Muckleshoot Selects Bally; Mohegan Adds Bally Tables

Game and system supplier Bally Technologies announced two developments last month that highlight the strengths of the company following the SHFL entertainment buy.

The company announced that Washington state’s Muckleshoot Casino has selected its suite of networked system products for its casino floor.

Muckleshoot will deploy Bally’s iVIEW Display Manager (DM) with Elite Bonusing Suite (EBS) across more than 3,100 video gaming machines to provide its guests with player-centric bonusing events including Virtual Racing, U-Spin Bonusing and Virtual Racing NASCAR.

With iVIEW DM, casino operators can present self-service player-account access, marketing messages and secondary bonus games on the main game screen, without interrupting play. iVIEW DM is backward-compatible on most gaming devices with a touch-screen display.

EBS, when combined with iVIEW DM, has been proven to increase coin-in, carded play, new card signups, and time on device at casinos across North America.

The property will also use Bally’s SDS slot-management system, its business intelligence application to analyze and visualize data, and Servizio, a suite of mobile service solutions that increases efficiency and enhances services for players.

In Connecticut, Bally announced that it has partnered with Mohegan Sun to create the world’s largest single-property table-game progressive link.

Bally’s new Game Manager 2 software will be used to track progressive jackpots on 43 tables across Mohegan Sun’s three casinos: Casino of the Earth, Casino of the Sky, and Casino of the Wind. The Mohegan Sun upgrade marks the installation of the greatest number of table-game progressives Bally has performed in North America.

Game Manager 2 enables multi-level jackpots and multiple fully configurable reserve pools, allowing players to compete for multiple real-time incrementing meters with just one wager. The product was developed by SHFL entertainment, which was acquired by Bally in November 2013.
