BALLY MANUFACTURING CORPORATION ANNOUNCES EXPANSION OF TUNICA DOCKSIDE CASINO

    CHICAGO, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Bally Manufacturing Corporation (NYSE: BLY) announced today that it was expanding the size of its dockside casino currently under construction in Tunica, Miss. (near Memphis, Tenn.) by 20 percent to 36,000 square feet from the previously announced 30,000 square feet.  The redesign of the project provides additional casino gaming space without significantly impacting the project's cost which is estimated at $30 million.  Bally's Tunica casino is planned to open in late 1993 and construction is proceeding on schedule.
    The company also announced that it has decided not to proceed with a previously announced dockside casino project in Biloxi, Miss., citing uncertainty of an opening date due to litigation pending with respect to possession of the property and other matters.
    The company continues to actively pursue casino gaming ventures in other jurisdictions.  Bally is moving forward on plans for a riverboat casino operation and complex in downtown New Orleans, La., for which it has received a Preliminary Certificate of Approval from the Louisiana Riverboat Gaming Commission.
    Bally Manufacturing is one of the world's foremost operators of casino hotels and fitness centers.
