The gambling downturn has hurt slot-machine makers as well. With revenues constrained, casinos have been looking for ways to cut costs. Lowering capital expenditures on new slot machines was one of the ways casinos went about this, ultimately creating a very soft market for companies like Bally Technologies Inc. The near two year slump on new slot machine sales has been very difficult for the sector that depends on sales for a portion of its revenue. The sector typically does share a portion of the gambling revenues each machine takes in, so if the recovery continues and Americans continue gambling there may be light at the end of the tunnel.
