The online casino industry is full of software developers that supply game content. Regrettably, many of these developers seem to be following a mould production approach in an effort to spit out games without much concern for features and quality.

Unlike many others, WMS Gaming are only interested in producing quality games and bringing innovation to an industry that is lacking new ideas and concepts.

The Company

During the past 60 years or so, gaming has inevitably undergone several significant changes. The travelling gambling machines of the 1940s were replaced by a city of land-based casinos known as Las Vegas in the ‘50s and ‘60s, with gaming eventually entering our homes before the turn of the millennium as Internet gambling boomed around the world.

What does this have to do with WMS Gaming? Well, they have been through it all. What started as manufacturer of pinball machines, it joined the reel-spinning market in 1994 providing slot machines and cabinets to traditional land-based casinos, and developed into a company that in 2010 started supplying online casino games for a rising iGaming market.

“In 2013, the company was acquired by Scientific Games Corporation, but still carries on producing proprietary and branded land-based games, as well as popular online video slots through its subsidiary Williams Interactive”.


WMS Gaming’s main headquarters are based in the US, but they have operational offices in the UK, a strategic location within the heart of the iGaming industry. The company is currently licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

The Software

WMS Gaming has been around for a while and has seen more than a few changes in technology throughout the years, and today it makes games using the latest software development technology. There are almost 40 casinos currently benefiting from the WMS product line in download mode for PC and Mac users and/or instant play mode via web browser.

WMS Gaming’s games collection is effortlessly integrated with most of the major software platforms available in the marketplace at present. The fair and secure random number generator (RNG) at the base of all of their games is tested and certified by the accredited gaming test labs at TST.

As site security is of paramount importance, the software is protected using front-line SSL digital encryption technology.

The Games

Right now the company’s full attention is on developing 3-reel classic slots, progressive slots and 5-reel video slots. The themes of the games cover a broad range, among which we can find branded games like Star Trek, The Wizard of OZ, Monopoly, Bruce Lee and Top Gun.

The games feature a variety of payline configurations, brilliant graphics, powerful video features, and lots of bonus games to keep players engaged. The company’s claim to fame is attributable to its inventive Hot Hot Penny bonus feature, which requires the player to make an additional side bet per line to activate and results in progressive hit frequencies that can bring significant returns.
