LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bally Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: BYI), a leader in slots, video machines, casino-management, interactive applications, and networked and server-based systems for the global gaming industry, today announced it has reached an agreement to provide its iGaming platform to Mohegan Suns casinos in Uncasville, Conn. and Wilkes-Barre, Pa., adding to the growing portfolio of online gaming sites the Company develops for casino operators.
The agreement will enable Mohegan Sun to offer play-for-free online poker in Connecticut and Pennsylvania in preparation for online wagering regulation. Mohegan Sun selected Bally Interactive following a six-month review process.
Were thrilled to continue our successful partnership with Bally Technologies, said Mitchell Etess, Chief Executive Officer for the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. Our goal is always to provide our guests with the best gaming and entertainment offerings, and we believe iGaming is the next step in fulfilling the demand for regulated online play when customers arent able to be on property.

Ballys iGaming platform offers casino operators a number of benefits. The platforms open architecture enables operators to choose from best-in-class content from a multitude of providers. Additionally, content is hosted, limiting the infrastructure required. The iGaming platform is also designed for mobile integration and is ready to accommodate online gaming beyond poker, such as casino table games, video slots, sports betting, and social.
