When it comes to casino software providers, the variety is huge, there are so many options these days that makes a player sometimes get lost in the endless amount of games out there, this is why WGS software is so loved, they keep things simple.

Background and history

WGS (Wager Gaming Technology), is one of the oldest online casino software providers. It started out back at 1996, yes that long! and was called Odds On Gaming, this software catered a few online casinos including English harbor which had also developed its own casino software.

On 2003, English harbor casino and Odds On merged into Vegas technology software and ruled the market for the next 5-7 years with stunning game technology and high popularity among the players (especially the U.S players).

On the 2011 Black Friday, where key gaming management people were arrested, poker and casino domains were seized and bank accounts were frozen, Vegas technology decided to shut down their operations.

All casinos running on Vegas technology software were closed and remained closed to this day, however, the software didn’t die, it was bought by Wager Gaming group, known as wager gaming technologies which is currently active with a few casinos.

WGS software Slots

WGS slots are pretty old fashioned compared to the new high-tech casino software providers; bonus stages are pretty lame, the videos are backdated for the about 10 years ago, and the slot vary between 3 reel and 5 reel slots, hardly the star on the gaming industry.

On another note, the strength of WGS is not in its graphics and elaborated games, it’s actually quite the opposite, simplicity of the slots is the key factor, this is the reason why players keep coming back, they just love the good old fashioned slots, they don’t really care about the amazing features of the new slots versions.

Some of the best popular slots ever are with WGS, like the 3 reel Triple flaming 777, or the 5 reel Monster money slot.

Wager Gaming Technology Software

Stated here a few times, the WGS software is a bit outdated, however it does apply for all operating systems, Mac and windows (all versions). It has flash version without the need (no download) as well as download version, in which the players will have to download a small file (file is tiny, about 1 Mega, will not take too much space).

The highlight of WGS are the tournaments, to this day, none of the worldwide respected casino software providers had managed to get to the Wager gaming quality of tournaments. There are multiple tournament options, an open for all tournaments or restricted ones for VIP’s. Some of the tournaments are free and some take a small admission for entrance, with the ability to rebuy chips just like in real tournaments.

In big tournaments, there are some satellite tournaments which proceed the big event so only the best can play and win big.

Security and Safety

Most of the WGS technology casinos are currently running some sort of a 3rd party audit to make sure there is a random fair play. some of the casinos are offering the TST sign of honest casinos, and of course the RNG (random number generator) for fair odds of winning vs. losing.

You can also find in most of the casinos which operate with WGS SSL and encryption as accustomed in this industry as well as a clear finance view of deposits and withdrawals.
