There are many slot machines made by different companies but the machines in Bally’s Casino are the only ones made by the “Bally’s Technologies company”. “Bally’s technologies” was founded in 1986 as the “Advanced patent technology” company. The name was later changed to “Games of chance communication corporation”, when it was bought in 1996. In 2006 the name was finally changed into “Bally’s technologies company”.
However, the “Bally” brand has existed for many years since 1932, with a complex history of new organizations, mergers and dispossessions. “Bally” is rooted in the early Pinball games and later in slot machines, quickly merging into the hotel and gym industry.
Bally’s breakthrough came in the 70s, as it entered the casino business, when gambling became legal in New Jersey’s Atlantic City. So, on 29 December 1979, “Bally’s Park Place” hotel and casino was opened, attracting guests from America, Canada, and the world at large.
Of course, Bally went into the video game industry as well with advanced slot machines. The machine had many useful features such a 256 color range and the ability to play 4 musical sounds, wowing crowds around the world.
Towards the 80s, the gaming industry slowly changed in Canada as society changed with the times, and fans could find video games like Pacman and Space Invaders down the street without going abroad, making the casino industry struggle to keep gamblers interested. Many hotels were added to casino as well to entice travelers from afar to visit; MGM Grand Hotel and Casinos on the Las Vegas Boulevard and Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
The company kept growing and expanding its gambling and slot machines businesses and has gained a proven control in the field of casino games with gamblers coming from around the world, and Canada is no exception.
