Bally Technologies has landed an enterprise-wide, multi-year contract with the Seminole Tribe of Florida to deploy its SDS Windows slot-management and slot accounting system at six casinos in Florida by the end of the 2011 calendar year.

Bally will upgrade the Seminole Tribe of Florida with the latest version of SDS for Windows, which provides gaming operators with a competitive and scalable slot-management system using a modern architecture, delivers flexibility, easy maintainability, horizontal and vertical scalability for any size of casino operation, and advanced reporting for all legacy and new games including multi-game, multi-denom, bonusing, and cashless.

In conjunction with the Seminoles’ installation of SDS, the products that they will be using include Bally’s new soft GMU feature, which uses the iVIEW communication board for interfacing with the slot machine for all gaming transactions, thereby reducing the hardware required for operating the slot floor. This is another advancement in Bally’s philosophy to provide casinos with a one-wire integrated solution for their system network architecture where possible, and increases operational efficiency since content can be downloaded from a central location, rather than the labor-intensive task of upgrading each gaming device.

The Seminole operation consists of more than 10,000 slot machines at six casinos throughout Florida: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Hollywood; Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – Tampa; Seminole Casino Brighton; Seminole Casino Coconut Creek; Seminole Casino Hollywood; and Seminole Casino Immokalee.
