"We will show a variety of new game titles designed to deliver high performance in the rapidly growing and vitally important Native American gaming market," said Gavin Isaacs, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Bally Technologies. "This venue also gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our Networked Floor systems solutions, many of which are already available to gaming operators."

Bally Technologies will display a variety of innovative games and new titles including:

Million Degrees(TM) -- This wide-area progressive is designed exclusively for the Class II Native American gaming market to offer players the chance to win just short of $1 million. Class II players will soon be able to play four linkable multi-level progressive games, featuring five jackpots and a top award that could yield $999,999 with the maximum bet wagered.

Reel Money(TM) -- Bally's Reel Money low-denomination stepper features a five-level progressive jackpot with a top award that starts at $25,000. The game plays like Bally's highly successful Hot Shot Progressive(TM), with a guaranteed winner in the bonus feature.

Seven-Reel Stepper -- Also on display at Indian Gaming '08 will be two new Bally seven-reel stepper games -- Bonus Frenzy® Freegames and Fortune 8's(TM) -- on Bally's CineReels(TM) reel-spinning platform, the first gaming device in industry history to offer seven electro-mechanical reels.

ALPHA Elite(TM) Bar Top -- This game's configuration offers an ergonomically designed game module engineered to easily fit standard bar-top configurations. The ALPHA Elite Bar Top features a 20-inch, high-definition widescreen LCD display and touch-screen interface.

"We are strongly committed to developing and providing the most advanced games and systems for Native American gaming operations," Isaacs said. "We recently signed major system agreements with MGM Grand at Foxwoods and Mashantucket Pequot tribal officials, as well as the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Pechanga Resort & Casino, Spotlight 29 Casino, and Fantasy Springs Resort, to provide our industry-leading technology."

Isaacs added, "The large portfolio and diversity of new game titles that we are showcasing reflects our goal to continue delivering high-performing game content for our Native American customers in the Class III, Class II, and tribal lottery space. We greatly appreciate these partnerships and will continue to work hard to deliver products that add significant value."

Bally Technologies will also showcase a variety of its latest server-ready systems solutions including:

iVIEW Display Manager (DM)(TM) -- This provides gaming operators with picture-in-picture capability on any game display associated with any manufacturer's gaming device, which allows casinos to cross-promote sister properties and maximize company-wide promotions and special events. Unlike other companies' solutions, iVIEW DM displays content through the iVIEW processor rather than the game processor, which eliminates the need for separate regulatory approvals and complex development and integration efforts.

Bally Business Intelligence Solution(TM) -- This system contains the Data Analysis Dashboard and Data Visualization modules that connect player data with individual game data. This provides slot and marketing managers with insights about how their patrons interact with the gaming floor.

Bally Power Bank(TM) .- This cashless feature, in conjunction with Cash System's powercash(TM) technology, enables player's club members to access funds from their credit, debit, or checking account while sitting at the gaming device.

Bally Live Rewards(TM) -- This is a server-based, second-way-to-win bonusing system that rewards players with unique bonus games customized to a player's session wagering pattern.

Bally Technologies' newest table-game technology, TableView(TM), will also be on display, showcasing a real-time table rating and player-tracking system that ensures table-game players get the same recognition and rewards as slot players. Developed on the powerful Microsoft®.NET framework, TableView replaces the manual rating process with an easy-to-use touchscreen, allowing floor operations staff to enter real-time player ratings, request chip fills and credits, input table closers, issue player comps and markers, and change the table shift.

Bally Technologies' executives are also presenting on three of the conference's much-anticipated panels. Tom Doyle, Vice President of Product Management, is participating on the April 21 session "Improving Your BSA Anti-Money Laundering Program from 1-4 p.m.;" Derik Mooberry, Vice President of Systems Sales-Western Region, will address "Promotions and Bonusing Technology" on April 22 from 9-10 a.m.; Greg Colella, Director of Product Management, and Bryan Kelly, Vice President of Technology, will provide their insights on the "Future of Slot Technology" April 23 from 2-5 p.m.
