WMS has been around for a long time, and developed a reputation in other areas of "amusements" before venturing into the field of online gambling. The company has exhibited much craftsmanship in designing slot games for the land-based sector, and now is bringing that over to its collection of online slots as well.
WMS stands for Williams Manufacturing Company, and that is the origin of this organization back in 1943. Pinball machines were their stock-in-trade at first, and years later this outfit morphed into a business that dealt with lottery terminals and slot machines. Of course, land-based casinos became the major clientele, and there were many terrific components of the catalogue that were enjoyed by casino goers. As the industry began to move online, with a potential reach to a lot more players, the WMS emphasis began to gravitate in that direction. So online versions of their slot games were devised, or new ones were conceived, and they were not necessarily looking to share all of it through licensing, so they created their own casino, JackpotParty.com, to serve customers in the United Kingdom.
Their casino became a showcase, and they come in a number of different categories, all of which show something very unique about this company and their online slot design. For example, there is a "Spinning Streak" series of machines that make entire reels wild and then continue to spin the rest of the reels, creating some very interesting winning situations. Then there is a very interesting concept called "Cascading Reels," in which the reels don't spin, but new symbols just sort of "cascade" onto them. And I-Play slot games take on a life of their own, as they literally incorporate some kind of story into the whole slot game, where you have an objective and your mission is to accomplish that objective, or super-objective, as it were. These slots include the Egyptian Riches and Enchanted Dragon offerings.
If there is a common theme with the slot game collection, it is to offer the customer something that is new and innovative, but with enough real staying power in terms of efficiency that it is not looked upon as a novelty. And the way they deal with the other games is far from mundane as well. One of the interesting variations on blackjack is called "Super 21," where the player can get paid extra for totals of 21 that consist of five or more cards, or natural blackjacks that consist of cards of the diamond suit. With baccarat, Pai Gow Poker and roulette, as well as other games, WMS has more than enough to outfit any class operation.
