BALLY ON 'SHORT-LIST' FOR CASINO LICENSING APPROVALS IN MISSISSIPPI ACTION ACCELERATES MOMENTUM TOWARD 1993 NEW CASINO OPENINGS

 CHICAGO, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Arthur M. Goldberg, Chairman, chief executive officer and president of Bally Manufacturing Corporation (NYSE: BLY) announced today that both of Bally's license applications for its two recently announced dockside casino projects in Mississippi have been selected for priority review by the Mississippi Gaming Commission.
 Mr. Goldberg said, "Bally's selection by the Mississippi Gaming Commission paves the way for our Tunica project to be one of the next operating casinos in the Memphis market and the opening of Bally's Biloxi casino as soon as construction can be completed."
 As one of only five casino companies licensed in both Atlantic City and Nevada, we believe that Bally will qualify under Mississippi's strict regulatory standards for licensing," added Goldberg.
 Bally has commenced construction of its new casino in Tunica, Miss., 35 miles south of Memphis. Construction of the casino for the Biloxi project is scheduled to begin the end of this month.
 In addition to the Mississippi projects, Bally is in both formal and informal proposal stages with respect to several other casino gaming opportunities in other jurisdictions.
 Bally Manufacturing Corporation is one of the world's foremost operators of casino hotel resorts and fitness centers.
