Alliance Gaming Corp. reports that its Bally Gaming and Systems unit
plans to display 111 unique game titles on a variety of slot machine platforms
at Global Gaming Expo, including a revolutionary new wide-area progressive link
and a wide variety of themes that showcase licensed titles.
The “BALLY LIVE!” theme will
be used to showcase the 129 machines and 111 unique titles that Bally Gaming and
Systems plans to display. Celebrities and other special guests will be “on
stage” throughout the show.
“Our game pipeline is starting to
flow at full speed and we are continuing to build upon the successes of the past
12 months by capitalizing on the significant improvements in our game
development and engineering departments,” said Robert Miodunski, president
and chief executive officer of Alliance Gaming. “The past year has
demonstrated that we are indeed producing new games across all platforms that
appeal to all segments of the market, both domestically and
One of the most notable new gaming
products that will be launched at G2E, Cash For Life is a unique wide-area
progressive link that offers players the opportunity to win a minimum of $1,000
a week for the rest of their lives. The Cash For Life concept will be featured
on both reel-spinning and video platforms in a variety of high-profile game
themes. Another distinctive feature of Cash For Life is that players will be
able to play for the top progressive reward across different denominations.
“Cash For Life is truly a
breakthrough concept that will revolutionize the way players can win a top
progressive award,” notes Mickey Roemer, senior vice president of Sales and
Game Development of Bally Gaming and Systems. “Previously, winners of major
progressive jackpots could only take either a lump-sum payment or receive an
annual annuity. Who wouldn’t want to get a check for $1,000 each and every week
for the rest of their lives?”
One of the first marquee games
scheduled to be unveiled as part of the Cash For Life progressive link is based
on one of the most popular TV game shows of all time: Concentration. Featuring
Bally Gaming’s technologically advanced EVO VIDEO interactive platform,
Concentration will offer players all of the excitement and suspense of the
original TV show that challenged contestants to match key parts of a puzzle for
valuable prizes. Another new Cash For Life game will showcase well-known game
show host Bob Eubanks.
There will also be a Cash For Life
game with a Blues Brothers theme, one of four Saturday Night Live titles that
will be on display along with the Coneheads, Church Lady and Hans and Franz.
Bally will also introduce two new
games featuring comedians Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. Their likenesses will be
featured on a new reel-spinning slot entitled Joker’s Wild and a new EVO VIDEO
game called Last Resort.
