Bally Technologies buys 14 acres for expansion, eyes site for new HQ

Slot-machine maker Bally Technologies has bought almost 14 acres of land in southwest Las Vegas, with plans to turn the former headquarters site of a rival into its own home base.

Bally spent $5 million for the land near Sunset and El Camino roads just north of the 215 Beltway, according to CBRE Group broker Greg Tassi, who represented the company.

Tassi said in a news release that Bally plans to build office and industrial buildings on the site, which is adjacent to Shfl Entertainment’s former headquarters.

Bally bought the casino supplier formerly known as Shuffle Master last year for about $1.4 billion, right around the time Shfl’s new 130,000-square-foot building opened.

The campus will likely become Bally’s corporate headquarters, spokesman Mike Trask said.

The company has about 1,200 local employees. Its current headquarters, at Bermuda and Sunset roads across from McCarran International Airport, is about 5 miles east of the Shfl property.
