Updated on

Scientific Games Corp. agreed to acquire Bally Technologies Inc. for about $3.3 billion, excluding net debt, buying up a bigger rival as consolidation in the slot-machine industry accelerates.

Scientific Games, controlled by billionaire Ronald Perelman, will pay $83.30 in cash per Bally common share, according to a statement. That’s a premium of 38 percent over Bally’s closing price yesterday.
