Bally Technologies, a provider of slots, video machines, casino management, and networked and server-based systems for the global gaming industry, is to acquire Las Vegas-based Sightline Payments, a provider of payment solutions.
Payment processing will be a new product line for Bally, adding a line-up of Sightline Payment products.
Bally’s chief executive officer (CEO), Richard Haddrill, said: “Sightline Payments is our latest investment and continues to show our commitment to a comprehensive system product offering. Payment systems and gaming systems will continue to converge and incorporate privatised currency capabilities currently available in retail and online.
“Our iVIEW network has been architected to serve customers at any point of play or point of purchase, and the addition of Sightline’s product offerings to these distribution channels will make for a powerful suite of products for our customers,” Haddrill added.
