Bally Technologies Signs Deal with Boyd Gaming

11 April 2006

LAS VEGAS – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Bally Technologies (NYSE: BYI) announced today it has signed a contract with Boyd Gaming Corp. (NYSE: BYD) to provide complete casino management, slot accounting and bonusing solutions across all Boyd Gaming properties nationwide in an agreement that is structured to provide standardized technology for a total of approximately 30,000 slot machines at 19 casino properties in six states.

The agreement calls for a transition of existing Bally systems to a common Bally CMS®/SMS® solution at multiple Boyd Gaming locations and the competitive replacement of systems technology at The Orleans Hotel and Casino, the Barbary Coast Hotel and Casino and the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino, all in Las Vegas. The deal also includes the installation of Bally iVIEW(TM) interactive touch-screen displays on slot machines at both The Orleans and the Gold Coast. Boyd Gaming is already live with a combined total of nearly 5,000 iVIEWs at the South Coast Hotel and Casino and the Suncoast in Las Vegas.

Where approved and allowed by the appropriate regulatory body, Boyd Gaming will also offer its players Bally Power Rewards(TM) from the suite of Bally Power Bonusing(TM) products and have the option to purchase additional bonusing technology. Already live at four Boyd Gaming properties, Bally Power Rewards creates a player-centric bonusing environment that provides an enhanced level of rewards and excitement for Boyd Gaming casino guests.

"The operational benefits of standardizing our systems technology enterprise-wide will be substantial," said Chris Gibase, Senior Vice President Operations of Boyd Gaming. "And this agreement with Bally will also create some exciting benefits for our guests, including improved player's club offerings and an expanded level of bonusing events and other player rewards. Stability is one of the primary reasons we selected Bally systems."

"Boyd Gaming has always been one of our most important partners as we have grown into the world's No. 1 gaming systems company," said Ramesh Srinivasan, Executive Vice President of Bally Systems. "Our Bally team is dedicated to ensuring that this agreement provides Boyd Gaming the technology to improve efficiencies while giving players a better overall experience."

Along with Bally Power Rewards, another bonusing technology contemplated for expansion among Boyd Gaming properties is Bally Power Winners(TM). It is expected that all of the upgrades and installations covered in the agreement with Boyd Gaming will begin immediately and be substantially completed by summer of 2007.
