31 May 2006

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Bally Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: BYI) announced today it has signed a contract with Lincoln Park, a subsidiary of BLB Investors, LLC whose owners are Waterford Development Group, Kerzner International, and Starwood Capital Group, to provide an advanced suite of Bally Power Bonusing(TM) products and up to 4,752 iVIEW touch-screen displays for all of the Video Lottery Terminals planned for the Lincoln Park racino in Lincoln, R.I.
