An online content licensing deal has been clinched between WMS Industries subsidiary Williams Interactive LLC and Sky Betting & Gaming, thanks to which SkyVegas will be able to offer its customers access to WMS' web-based slot games and mobile gaming platforms.
Some of the games are extremely popular slots titles, such as THE WIZARD OF OZ™, Zeus™, Reel 'Em In® and Jackpot Party®. The WMS’ content will be available on SkyVegas thanks to OpenBet’s Remote Gaming Interface (RGI) which is incorporated into the OpenBet platform used by Sky Betting & Gaming.
Discussing the potential of such a deal, Orrin J. Edidin, chief executive officer and president of Williams Interactive, said: “Sky Vegas is a leading casino operator in the UK interactive gaming market and has a growing community of online players. The inclusion of WMS slot content on their desktop and mobile platforms represents another premier endorsement of our content, games and online gaming capabilities."
Samuel Downey, head of casino and games at Sky Betting & Gaming added: “Being able to offer the popular slot content from WMS to Sky Vegas players has been a top priority for some time. In land-based casino environments, it is common to see players standing in line for a chance to enjoy the great gaming entertainment WMS is known for and we are very happy to now offer these great player experiences online for our customers. As WMS games become available online, I expect they will quickly become new favorites of our players."
