Scientific Games and JACK Entertainment Partner at Three Ohio Casinos with New Systems, Games and Cabinets

Scientific Games Corporation today announced that JACK Entertainment LLC which was formerly known as Rock Gaming LLC, has chosen a comprehensive suite of Bally Systems™ solutions, 250 popular game titles and WMS® and Bally™ cabinet platforms for three Ohio gaming properties: JACK Cleveland Casino, JACK Cincinnati Casino, and JACK ThistleDown Racino.

Winning in a competitive bidding and selection process, Scientific Games will provide JACK Entertainment with its latest SDS™ slot-accounting solution, CMP™ player-tracking system, TableView ™ real-time table-management solution, and the Company's award-winning iVIEW™ Display Manager on-device messaging technology across each property's high-speed networked gaming floors.

The systems conversion project is already underway, and the BallySystems are slated to be fully installed and deployed at all three properties by June 30, 2016.

Scientific Games' systems will also connect JACK Entertainment's player-loyalty programs at JACK Cleveland Casino, JACK Cincinnati Casino, JACK ThistleDown Racino, and JACK Detroit Casino-Hotel Greektown, enabling the gaming operator to offer enhanced player recognition and rewards for patronage at and across all four properties.

"We chose Scientific Games because they are the leader in systems innovation," said JACK Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Matt Cullen. "We look forward to having the enhanced system in place, which will allow us to streamline our processes and operations."

JACK Entertainment will also purchase 250 new Scientific Games gaming machines including the ALPHA 2™ Pro Series™ Wave™ and Pro Series™ V32 cabinets supporting many of the Company's popular titles, including Quick Hit™ Wild Red Free Games Fever®, Any Bet Triple™ Quick Hit™ Blazing 7s™, Fu Dao Le™, Quick Hit Platinum® Blazing 7s™ Wild Jackpot™, and Dragon Rising®.
