The deal features more than 2,000 VLTs in the US state

Bally Gaming has strengthened its outlook in the lottery sector by striking a deal to provide more than 2,000 video lottery terminals (VLTs) to the Oregon Lottery.

The Scientific Games subsidiary has submitted the product and software to the US state’s lottery and will begin shipping games later this year after completion of a field trial.

Scientific said that all games would be part of a multi-offering suite on the Bally Alpha 2 Pro V32 cabinet.  

“We are honoured to continue our solid relationship with the Oregon Lottery in this well-established and successful market,” said Derik Mooberry, Scientific Games group chief executive (gaming).

“Players in Oregon will now have an opportunity to experience a new robust suite of games and products, including player favourites on the eye-catching Bally Pro V32 cabinet.

“We continue to leverage our multi-channel content for the benefit of lottery markets in the US and Canada.”

Oregon began offering video poker machines in bars and adult-only establishments in 1992 while slots were also put in some 13 years later.

Revenues from video lottery games have dwarfed traditional lottery offerings in the state for more than 20 years, with 2013 figures showing that more than $1bn (€880m) was made on the former, with around $200m on the latter.

Scientific said that the 32-inch vertical HD video touch-enabled display of the machines is perfect for the games available.

A statement added: “The Bally Pro V32 will showcase high-performance game content on more than a dozen game titles, including Lucky Tree, Quick Hit Platinum, Cash'M If You Can, Texas Dice, and Jewel of the Dragon. Additional games will feature video poker and keno content.”
