LAS VEGAS, Oct. 11 // -- Bally Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:BYI) announced today that Empire City at Yonkers Raceway in suburban New York City has officially opened with 1,873 video gaming machines, of which 920 were supplied by Bally.
Today's opening at Yonkers Raceway also marks the debut of Bally's new ALPHA Elite cabinet series. Of the 920 Bally machines, 647 are the new ALPHA Elite V20 cabinets with a 20.1-inch wide-screen liquid crystal display (LCD). The upright ALPHA Elite V20 was inspired by the popularity of Bally's 26-inch wide-screen CineVision(TM) cabinet. The majority of the other 273 Bally machines at Yonkers Raceway are displayed as CineVision games.
Several new Bally game themes are making their New York Lottery debut at Yonkers Raceway, including Fixin' To Win(TM), Win Win Situation(TM), Green Machine(TM) and a variety of multi-level progressives such as Wall Street Winners(TM), New York Gold(TM), Blazing 7s(R) and Quick Hit(TM). The progressives are displayed on overhead large-format LCDs powered by another new Bally technology, Sign Studio(TM), an advanced media player that gives gaming locations the ability to present high-definition animated graphics and an enhanced level of game-related content scheduling.
A second expansion at Yonkers is expected to add 495 machines by the end of the calendar year and the third expansion early next year will bring the total number of machines to more than 5,475, of which 2,823 will be supplied by Bally.
