The first slot machine based on electronic principles was created by Bally in 1964, the name of the slots was ”Money Honey”. With such a proven land-casino track record it wasn’t long before Bally Technologies turned its gaze toward the online gambling arena.
Raymond T. Malony founded Bally Technologies in 1968. Presently it has more than 3,500 employees and 25 offices sprinkled across the globe. Based in Las Vegas it’s the first publicly traded gaming company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). In 2014 Bally Technologies purchased scientific Games the company behind WMS Gaming and Barcrest.
”Few software companies can boast more than 80 years in the gaming industry. The Bally Interactive division supports mobile and Internet systems through its Bally Interactive and iGaming Platform.”
Bally is now the proud designer of a broad base of casino games that includes slots, table games, video poker, sports betting and specialty games like keno, bingo and scratch cards. The very first casino games to go online was back in 2013, its never looked back since then. There’s also a ‘Bally Platform’ which focuses exclusively on the burgeoning mobile casino market, the games are fully compatible with Androids, iPhones and tablet devices. The visuals of its online slot games are cutting-edge and they’re loaded with bonus features.

Online Slots Graphics and Animations
Bally’s transition from a land-based vendor to an online one has been met with strong opposition from the likes of NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, IGT, Play N’ Go, Quickspin and Betsoft. Suffice to say it’s a ‘Jungle Out There!’
So, what makes the vendor’s games so special? The games have built-in HD (High Definition) graphics, captivating themes based on contemporary life, historical figures and numerous others. Each game is further compliment by pin-dropping audio, free spins bonus rounds, high RTPs (return to player percentages), huge jackpots not to forget that they are highly entertaining too.
One online slots in particular that Bally is renowned for is its ‘Quick Hit Slots‘ (Quick Hit Black Gold & Quick Hit Platinum). Essentially they have a land-based vibe which further accentuates their popularity and charm.
Popular slots titles include Pawn Stars (based on the popular History Channel), NASCAR, Betty Boop’s Love Meter, Playboy Hot Zone, Lady Robin Hood and Thunderhorn just to name a few of many interesting titles. They’re kitted with a slew of bonus features but they’re high variance as well – Bally’s slots are volatile making them popular with high-staked players.
In summary. Bally Technologies’ game library now competes with the best. What makes it even more impressive is that it only entered the iGaming market a few years ago (2013). The only caveat is that it doesn’t spoil players for choice and players from the United States can’t play the games online. The upside to this is that the quality of the games are top-notch.
