BUSINESS WIRE – Bally Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: BYI) (“Bally” or the “Company”) earned three honors in the 2015 Gaming & Technology Awards, including top spots for two of the Company’s game and table product innovations.

The Pro Wave 360° cabinet won first place for “Best Slot Product” and Safe-Bacc won first place for “Best Table Game Product or Innovation.” In addition, Mobile Credits won second place for “Best Consumer Service Technology.”

With these latest honors, Bally has earned more than 80 awards for gaming innovation over the past four years, more than all its major competitors combined.

No other gaming manufacturer won more than two honors in the Gaming & Technology Awards, which are sponsored by Global Gaming Business magazine and recognize industry-leading technology and innovation. The submissions were evaluated by a panel of expert judges from across the casino gaming industry.

“It is an honor to win first place in two of the four categories because it demonstrates that we are committed to developing differentiated products that meet the needs of operators and players,” said Derik Mooberry, Bally’s Senior Vice President of R&D. “The Pro Wave 360° takes our award-winning Pro Wave cabinet to a whole new level, Safe-Bacc increases security on the popular game of baccarat, and Mobile Credits makes it easier for players to fund their gaming by allowing them to load credits from their mobile device. We believe these award-winning products elevate the gaming experience and offer more profit potential to our customers.”

The Pro Wave 360° redefines community-style gaming with its circular display featuring five Pro Wave cabinets and five 40-inch video toppers forming a 360-degree video display for a towering centerpiece reaching 10 feet tall. The configuration synchronizes audio and visual events for a community gaming experience in which players share the joys of winning and bonuses together, while their play and coin-in stay separate.

Safe-Bacc is a revolutionary new product that combines Bally’s best-in-class automatic shuffling, card reading, and scoring technology into one solution that increases game speed and improves security on baccarat tables. Safe-Bacc delivers cost savings by eliminating the need for additional security features, pre-shuffled cards, and the multi-layered security checks that casinos currently perform while delivering cards to their tables.

Mobile Credits revolutionizes slot play by enabling players to fund their gaming directly from their mobile device. This next generation of funds management removes the need for players to visit an ATM or carry vouchers around on the casino floor, increasing potential coin-in by reducing the time spent away from a slot machine.
