American gambling company Bally Technologies has announced that it has acquired internet gaming company Chiligaming.
A spokesman for Bally Technologies said that Chiligaming's business to business internet gaming platform will allow for casino operators to have a quality application for paid or free play games. Operators will also have the ability to integrate the system into Bally's slot management and casino management systems.
Bally Vice President of Business Development John Connelly commented on the acquisition, saying “This acquisition provides an open, cloud-based platform for Bally Technologies to offer an integrated traditional and online casino solution to operators worldwide."
“Equally as important, Bally Technologies has also obtained an experienced team of industry veterans from within the online gaming industry, which will help our customers optimize their use of this platform.”
Chiligaming CEO Alexandre Dretfus also issued a statement, saying “I’m very proud of this agreement between our two companies. We are excited to develop our technology, knowledge, and experience with Bally to bring the best value for land-based casinos.”
Bally's acquisition of Chiligaming is the latest move that the gambling giant has taken in order to enhance its electronic gambling portfolio. Recently the company purchased a Remote Game Server as well as MacroView Labs, the gambling industry's largest provider of mobile apps and websites .
