Bally Technologies Gets Gulfstream Slots Contract

Edited press release

Bally Technologies has signed a contract with Magna Entertainment Corp. to provide a complete slot-machine accounting, casino management, and bonusing solution, and a wide variety of gaming devices, at Gulfstream Park.

MEC-owned Gulfstream in Hallandale, Fla., is scheduled to open its slots and entertainment complex in October. Gulfstream is planning to open with 500 slot machines--all to be equipped with the Bally iVIEW touch-screen displays--and expand to 1,500 devices early next year.

Bally Technologies recently announced a similar deal to serve as slots vendor at Philadelphia Park, which is awaiting a conditional license to install gaming machines in Pennsylvania.

"We conducted a very thorough competitive review of all of the leading systems suppliers and determined that Bally was our preferred vendor," Gulfstream president Paul Micucci said. "We're confident a combination of games and bonusing technology from Bally will attract players and provide visitors to Gulfstream Park an exciting and entertaining gaming experience."

Bally Technologies, based in Las Vegas, operates more than 345,000 slot machines and 625 casino, bingo, Class II, central determination, and lottery locations worldwide.
