Nevada is the first state to adopt a statute allowing interactive gaming and
the first state to adopt regulations for online gaming of any kind.

“This is a historic day for Bally Technologies, for Nevada, and for the gaming
industry,” said Bally Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer Richard Haddrill.
“We are very grateful for the Board’s recommendation and are excited about
being the first company recommended by a U.S. state for licensing to offer
online gaming products and services.”

Haddrill added, “We are proud to achieve yet another milestone in our 80-year
history and look forward to further supporting our Nevada casino customers
with our technology in this exciting arena.”

At the NGCB’s meeting today, board members unanimously recommended Bally
Technologies for a license to act as an interactive gaming system manufacturer
and service provider. This will enable Bally to provide business-to-business
iGaming solutions for the state’s casino operators, including wager-based
online poker.

The NGCB’s recommendation is scheduled to be reviewed by the Nevada Gaming
Commission during its June 21, 2012 meeting, where a final decision will be
made.

If approved, Bally Technologies will offer its iGaming platform technology and
content to casino operators to enable them to provide online gaming to their
players. Bally’s iGaming platform’s open architecture enables operators to
choose from best-of-breed content from a multitude of providers. The iGaming
platform is also designed for mobile integration and is ready to accommodate
online wagering beyond poker, such as casino table games, video slots, bingo,
and sports betting when authorized.
