Flamingo Installs 'Mind Play' sci-fi BlackJack Tables

Bally Gaming and Systems, a business unit of Alliance Gaming Corp. announced today that Flamingo Las Vegas, a Caesars Entertainment, Inc. resort, has agreed to purchase the Company's MindPlay MP21 table-game management technology and will convert its entire blackjack operation to MindPlay tables.

Flamingo's decision to upgrade all 36 of its blackjack table games to MindPlay followed the successful conclusion of a six-month marketing field test and technology and performance review of the MindPlay table management system.

With MindPlay, for the first time, accurate player tracking is available on table games in real time, as it has been on slot machines. MP21 gives "real-time" information on items such as time played at the game, actual amount wagered and win/loss amounts. This makes the rating and evaluation of a player accurate and therefore comping programs vastly more effective in targeting dollars to valued players.

"We continue to build momentum with our MindPlay technology and we're pleased to have partners like the Flamingo and Caesars Entertainment and thank them for embracing a new technology that benefits both players and operators alike," said Richard Haddrill, President and CEO of Alliance Gaming.

"This was an intensive evaluation with some truly impressive findings," said Rich Soltys, Senior Vice President of the Bally Systems MindPlay product group. "The MindPlay optical bet recognition exceeded 99.98 percent accuracy and 99.9 percent uptime in this long-term live test. We're very pleased with the results and excited to offer a product that brings both a high level of performance and reliability with an affordable price. We think this test clearly demonstrates the competitive advantages our customers will experience through proven results from a live pit."
