Bally, NY Lottery sign extension deal

16 April 2007

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Bally Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: BYI) announced today it has signed a contract extension with the New York Lottery, keeping the Company's revenue-share machines -- currently more than 6,300 statewide -- in operation through at least Dec. 31, 2010.

Presently, Bally is the highest-performing vendor on a per-machine win basis statewide, covering eight gaming facilities. Game performance has been boosted statewide by the recent introduction of more than 150 Hot Shot Progressive(TM) units, along with Quick Hits(TM), Fireball Frenzy(TM) and American Original(TM).

Bally is also benefiting by the recent opening of the Gotham Palace section of Empire City at Yonkers Raceway in suburban New York City. This new phase added 1,400 total machines and brought the total at Empire City to 5,478, of which 2,283 are from Bally. All of the Bally machines at Empire City are presented in a wide-screen video format, both upright and CineVision(TM) on the award-winning ALPHA Elite(TM) series of cabinets.
