The oldest providers of online casino games have no more than two decades of history, but the WMS is one of (if not the only one) the notable exceptions. WMS is the successor of Williams Manufacturing Company. The latter was founded in the distant 1943. In 1974, Williams Electronics Inc became known as the creator of arcade video games and pinball machines. It was among the publishers of several generations’ favourite Mortal Combat. In 1994, the company made a foray into the slots production and started manufacturing gambling products for land-based gaming parlours.
The year 2013 was a major turning point in company’s history as WMS merged with Scientific Games. Up to date, WMS is one of the independent SG subsidiaries, and it distributes its products across land-based and online gambling hubs.
Today you can find WMS-powered slots at the Las Vegas Strip casinos and at the largest online casinos. Elvis: The King Lives, OMG! Kittens, Monopoly, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, The Wizard of Oz, Bruce Lee: Dragon’s Tale are among players’ favourites.
Apart from slots, WMS also takes pride in having an extensive Video Poker Blackjack, Baccarat, and Roulette games library.
In most cases, the WMS games are SG-branded.
WMS Games Design and Features
Design wise, the WMS games remind us of the Realistic titles. They are somehow basic and yet amusing in their own way. Although there are hundreds of games featuring 3D graphics and a whole lot of fancy features, the WMS games remain popular among players because of the intricate storylines, unique characters and in-game features giving them a chance to trigger exciting bonus rounds.
The WMS slots are in the med to high volatility spectrum, so players can expect some solid wins, especially if a free spins or bonus round is activated.
The WMS slots may look outdated at first, but if you spin the reels a few times, you will see that they have some modern, cool features.
The transmissive reels is a WMS-patented technology that projects graphically rich video content over mechanical reels on a touch screen to maximise players’ experience.
The WMS games are available in instant play mode i.e you will not have to download a casino client. You just need to open an account or log into your existing one and start playing.
WMS Games for Mobiles
The WMS games are fully compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac-run devices. At the time of writing, not all WMS slots are playable on smartphones but the company is working hard to bring most titles to mobiles. So, if you have a favourite WMS slot and you cannot find it when you load a WMS casino via your smartphone, chances are that the slot is not available due to technical reasons.
The WMS games might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are an avid slots fan, it would not hurt to try some of the above-mentioned titles, even for the sake of making a comparison between the branded WMS titles released several years ago, and the titles of the new king of branded slots – NetEnt.
