Bally Technologies signs tribal gaming deal; Olson-Reyes honored

Bally Technologies Inc. has signed a deal to provide its iGaming platform and mobile platform to the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. The tribe operates three casinos in Washington – Mill Bay, Okanogan Bingo and Coulee Dam.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed Wednesday. Based in Las Vegas, Bally will provide each property with online free-for-play poker, slot and table games content.

The company’s platform will allow Colville Tribal Casinos to offer custom iPhone, iPod and Android apps.

“This partnership represents the first iGaming agreement announced in the state of Washington and we are confident our award-winning technology will make a significant and positive impact in numerous areas of their business,” said John Connelly, vice president of business development at Bally.

Meanwhile, Laura Olson-Reyes, senior director of corporate marketing and communications with Bally, earned a 2012 Great Women of Gaming “Proven Leader” award from casino Enterprise Management magazine.

The “Proven Leader” category honors women who have worked in the gaming industry for at least 10 years.
