PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)




The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense



The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and



The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.




State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


Bally Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby requests an extension of time to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2006 (the “March 31 Form 10-Q”).  As previously disclosed, the Company was unable to file the March 31 Form 10-Q by May 10, 2006, without unreasonable effort or expense, primarily because the Company has determined that it may be necessary to make additional adjustments to the Company’s previously reported results.  The additional adjustments, if any, would be primarily related to the timing of revenue recognition and would generally shift revenue from earlier periods to more current periods.  The Company will not be in a position to file the March 31 Form 10-Q, or its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2005, until the Company, with the assistance of its outside consultants, completes a review of the transactions giving rise to the possible adjustments, as well as assesses the impact of any adjustments determined to be necessary.  The Company continues to dedicate significant resources to the review described above, and to the preparation and finalization of all three filings.
