Bally has also signed an agreement to provide many of its latest slot games to the properties, including many fresh new titles featured on the new ALPHA 2 Pro Wave cabinet and powerful Quick Hit content on the ALPHA 2 Pro Curve cabinet.

Among the Bally licensed premium titles to be featured at Golden Nugget properties will be TITANIC, The Magic of David Copperfield, and ZZ Top Live From Texas.

We are proud to have Golden Nugget Atlantic City as the first online wagering customer of our open-architecture iGaming platform. Our partnership with Golden Nugget continues to drive our Systems and Interactive technology solutions towards our vision for a common single view of the player.”
