03/16/2012 : WHO IS WGS TECHNOLOGY?
Licensing mystery surrounds the software powering Liberty Slots
Players and affiliate marketers across several message boards are still investigating just who is behind the scenes at WGS Technology, a software provider that suddenly popped up late in 2011 with an almost totally uninformative website.
The website claimed that this previously unheard of developer had been in the internet gambling business for 14 years, boasted a games inventory of around 100 products, yet gave no information on its corporate ownership, location, facilities, history, game fairness testing or licensing affiliations. And the website was only copyrighted late last year.
Strangely….for a company claiming such a long history….WGS appears to have just one licensee – Liberty Slots. And that online casino has been spamming a wide range of players puzzled about where a newcomer like this obtained their details.
Support representatives of the online casino have hardly helped to instil confidence, telling inquisitive players that they did not know where the casino was based or even if it was licensed – all serious red flags to cautious and experienced online punters.
Observant posters have noted that the software looks very much like that of Vegas Technology, which appeared to shut down and leave the industry last year, along with the English Harbour online casino group .
Some confirmation of this is suggested by several affiliate marketers, who have claimed that WGS-Liberty bought the software from VT, although there is no record of such a deal in the corporate media reports, and that some of its employees were previously associated with English Harbour group and the now defunct Casino Coins.
It has been pointed out that the Liberty Slots site even looks like an English Harbour template.
In the absence of a display of some semblance of corporate integrity and basic information on the origins of WGS and Liberty Slots, speculation and increasingly negative comment continue to thrive, doing little to encourage savvy gamblers to put good money down at this intriguing operation.
