Bally Technologies settles with gaming regulators, agrees to $125,000 fine


Slot machine maker Bally Technologies Inc. settled a 28-count complaint with state gaming regulators on Monday, agreeing to pay a $125,000 fine and admitting to each of the allegations that it failed to register employees with the state.

Bally waived a public hearing on the matter. The settlement has to be approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

The Gaming Control Board filed the complaint against Bally on Christmas Eve. Nevada law requires an employee to be registered with the state before working in gaming operations.

Most of the counts claimed that registrations were a few weeks or months late.

A majority of the employees cited in the complaint were engineers.

The 25-page complaint noted that Bally paid a $65,500 fine in 2008 for failing to register 56 gaming employees.

Bally CEO Ramesh Srinivasan signed off on the complaint for the company.
