Over the last 60 or so years, the gaming has gone through numerous major changes. What started as traveling gambling machines in the 1940s, turn into a city of land-based casinos called Las Vegas in the 1950s and 60s.
With the turn of the century, a new revolution started as Internet gambling exploded around the world. Now consider this. WMS Gaming has been there for all of it. What started as an entity content with providing slot machines and cabinets to brick and mortar casinos, evolved into a company, that as of 2010 started providing online casino games for a growing iGaming market.
Note that WMS Industries Inc. is now part of the Scientific Games Corporation, since the acquisition in 2013.
WMS Gaming's main headquarters are located in the US, but operational offices were opened in the UK to be near to the pulse of the iGaming industry. The company is currently licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gaming Commission.
This is a company that has seen more than its fair share of changes in technology over the years. Today, WMS Gaming creates its games with the most recent in software development technology. This has allowed casino owners to share the company's games with players in a variety of formats. There are over 35 casinos currently using the WMS product line in download mode for PC and Mac users and/or instant play mode with a web browser.
WMS Gaming's portfolio of games are easily integrated with most, if not all of the most popular software platforms currently being used in the marketplace. All of the company's games are built around an embedded random number generator (RNG) that has been tested and certified as fair and safe by the independent testing labs at TST. With site security being of the utmost importance, the software is protected by the latest in SSL digital encryption technology.
At this point in time, the company's sole focus has been on developing 3-reel classic slots, progressive slots and 5-reel video slots. The games cover a wide range of themes, including branded games like Star Trek, The Wizard of OZ, Monopoly, Bruce Lee and Top Gun.
The games come with various pay-line configurations, excellent graphics, exciting video features, and plenty of bonus games to keep players motivated. The company's claim to fame comes from its innovative "Hot Hot Penny Feature," which prompts the player to make an additional side bet for the opportunity to activate escalating hit frequencies that can bring big returns.
WMS Gaming is a games developer that’s been in this industry since 1943. In 2013, the company was acquired by Scientific Games Corporation, but still continues to produce proprietary and branded land-based games, as well as popular online video slots through its subsidiary Williams Interactive.
