Bally technologies the slot machine marker has acquired a license to develop online gaming systems in the state of Nevada. The company request was approved by a three member panel after an hour long hearing. According to the Las Vegas review journal which first broke the news, this marks the first time that a license had been approved in the state of Nevada by the Gaming control board.
Bally technologies chief executive officer Richard Hadrill was in cloud nine when he had that the company request had been approved.
“This is an historic moment for our company, the state of Nevada and the gaming industry. We are thankful to the Board on for its recommendation as we become the first company to be recommended by to offer gaming services and products”
Bally technologies will however have to wait until the 21st of June when the Nevada gaming commission will make if final decision regarding the license. If the license is approved by the commission as highly expected, Bally will have its technology tested to confirm if it meets the laid out standards.
If they are approved, the onus will now be on Bally to form partnerships with the local Nevada casinos as they will not be allowed to run independently. Bally has already hit the ground running and it has already signed a partnership agreement with the Golden Nugget Casino. To acquire the license, Bally paid $125,000. The next company to have its request for a license approved is the International Game technology.
