Wednesday February 20,2013 : WMS IN B2B AGREEMENT WITH SKY
Sky Vegas to carry WMS digital slot content
WMS Industries subsidiary Williams Interactive LLC has inked an online content licensing agreement with Sky Betting and Gaming which will provide SkyVegas.com with access to WMS' online library of web-based slot games and mobile gaming platforms.
Sky Betting & Gaming will feature the full catalogue of WMS' digital slot content, including THE WIZARD OF OZ™, Zeus™, Reel ‘Em In® and Jackpot Party® games on Sky Vegas.
WMS’ premium slot content will be available for SkyVegas.com players on both desktop and, following its anticipated launch, mobile platforms later in 2013.
The inclusion of WMS’ content on SkyVegas.com is made possible via OpenBet’s Remote Gaming Interface (RGI) which is incorporated into the OpenBet platform used by Sky Betting & Gaming.
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."
“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," added Samuel Downey, head of casino and games at Sky Betting & Gaming.
