Bally Technologies doesn't just make games

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- One of the largest technology companies in Southern Nevada is hiring and giving and growing.
Bally Technologies already employs about 1,000 people. And while they are focused on technology, they never forget about the people who call Las Vegas home.
And it is that business approach that is making Las Vegas a better place to live.
Bally Technologies turns out about 125 to 200 slot machines every day. That is about 20,000 per year.
The slot machines are then shipped all over the world including South America and Macau.
Their newest machine features a NASCAR theme. It is the first officially licensed sports game to hit the casino floor and features five NASCAR drivers including Jimmy Johnson and Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
But, cool games are only part of the company's story. The other part is cancer.
Employees volunteers at Camp Cartwhell, give generously to the Childhood Cancer Foundation, and even shaved their heads in a recent fundraising effort.
Bally's Senior Vice President Bruce Rowe lost his best friend to cancer and sits on the boar of the Childhood Cancer Foundation.
So, Bally Technologies supports cancer patients and their families while also looking to develop the next big game.
