Is Wagerworks anticipating a regulated market in the United States
10/29/09 – The latest press material from the UK-based online gambling software provider Wagerworks – a subsidiary of American gambling equipment giant IGT – provokes speculation that the company is optimistic about the chances of a more liberal and progressive Internet gambling policy evolving in the United States.
The material is an advisory that the company will showcase its products at this year's Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas…and that the emphasis in its exhibit will be remote gaming.
The theme will be "Taking Gaming to the Next Level", and WagerWorks will have on show products and brands migrated and adapted for online use from its parent IGT and sister company, Barcrest Group.
During G2E 2009, WagerWorks will present its latest online games incorporating unique game play and new levels of player excitement including Dungeons and Dragons: Crystal Caverns, Super Hoot Loot, Rainbow Riches Win Big Shindig, Transformers: Ultimate Payback and a full suite of mobile games including the recently launched Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold and Cleopatra .
Continued delivery of top tier partner agreements over the past year is testament to the reputation WagerWorks has gained in the marketplace as a game provider, offering streams of game content in interactive digital television, mobile gaming and internet gaming markets, the material claims.
Newly signed online partners include St Minver, Jenningsbet, Talarius and Entergaming with additional distribution agreements established with Finsoft and GTS. Existing online customers, Sky and Rank, have also recently integrated mobile content, making WagerWorks games available to an even greater numbers of online and mobile players across multiple platforms.
Commenting on the prospects for Wagerworks at G2E 2009, Oliver Lofthouse, Director and General Manager at WagerWorks said, "Our presence at G2E reinforces the reputation of IGT as a leading provider of innovative and technology-driven solutions in the gaming market.
"WagerWorks will have the opportunity to demonstrate its ability to offer great game content across multiple remote gaming channels. This is an exciting time for both companies as the remote gaming market evolves, and we look forward to meeting new and existing customers at this year's show."
