Bally Technologies and SHFL Entertainment recently announced they're teaming up on a line of online table games. The content will run on SHFL's iGaming platform. This is the first step in helping Bally set up to offer online poker through its Golden Nugget casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and the properties they own through American Casino & Entertainment: Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin, Nevada, Charlie's Casinos in Arizona, and Stratosphere Casino Hotel in Las Vegas.
With the partnership between Bally Technologies and SHFL, they plan to release free play and real money online poker, table games, slots, sports betting, and social gaming. This is the first step in Bally's GoldenNuggetPoker.com site. They're focusing on four of their most successful games to start: Casino War, Let it Ride, Three Cared Poker, and Texas Hold'em.
The success of these online games does depend on how the new online poker bill does with the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Recently Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator Jon Kyl admitted they're less confident about their bill making it through Congress.
Bally Technologies started in the 1930s. Today, they're a leading creator of progressive and video slot machines, as well as i-slots and mobile games. They also manage a number of casinos in the United Sates. You can learn more about their casinos and games at BallyTech.com.
SHFL Entertainment is the newly renamed Shuffle Master Inc. Their company's foundations start in 1982. The company started out creating a machine that would shuffle cards for you, and they've expanded a lot since then. The card shuffler machine was the invention of a truck driver who helped casinos beat the card counters who were playing the system. That idea turned into a million dollar industry. From there, SHFL expanded into developing table games and electronic table games. Some of their biggest online table games include Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold'em.
