Bally Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby requests an extension of time to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006 (the “June 30, 2006 Form 10-K”).  As previously disclosed, the Company has determined that its June 30, 2005, 2004 and 2003 financial statements included in its June 30, 2005 Form 10-K must be restated.  The Company expects to file the amended June 30, 2005 Form 10-K on or about September 29, 2006.  As a result, the Company will be unable to file its June 30, 2006 Form 10-K or its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended September 30, 2005, December 31, 2005 and March 31, 2006 until this restatement is filed.  The Company continues to dedicate significant resources to completing both the restatement and the June 30, 2006 annual financial statements and the fiscal 2006 quarterly financial statements.

Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed ? If answer is no, identify report(s).












o Yes    x No








Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?












x Yes    o No








If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.




For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2005, the Company previously reported a net loss from continuing operations of ($20.3) million or ($.40) per diluted share on revenues of $484.0 million.  On August 28, 2006, the Company announced that it would restate its 2005, 2004 and 2003 financial statements and that these financial statements should no longer be relied upon.  It currently expects to file the restated financial statements on or about September 29, 2006.  Although the Company expects significant changes between the Company’s results of operations for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006 as compared to the restated results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2005, the Company cannot make a reasonable estimate of the changes between such fiscal years until the Company has completed the restatement discussed above and the preparation of the financial statements for the 2006 Form 10-K.  As previously disclosed, the Company did not achieve its 2006 profitability objectives due principally to lower gross margins on game sales related to introductory pricing and the manufacturing costs of its newly commercialized slot machine platforms that remain in early deployment, high legal and accounting costs associated with ongoing litigation and restatement activities, increased interest costs, non-cash inventory obsolescence charges and the acceleration of depreciation on legacy daily fee games.
