Meet The Company Formally Known as Vegas Technology Software
Meet Wager Gaming Technology – or WGS Technology, for short. They’re the company formally known as Vegas Technology Software, who was the company formally known as OddsOn.
Why does this matter?
Although I guess it doesn’t hurt to know the background of the companies handling your money.
But there’s nothing to see here. Nothing terrible or sinister to report. The English Harbour Group (the owner of Vegas Technology) simply closed in 2011, and a couple months later WGS started it back up.
And we’re here now to tell you what to expect if you decide to play at one of their casinos.
So let’s get to it.
Alright, What Games Can You Play?
One good thing that came from the closure and reopening of the company is the number of games you can play.
It got bumped up from 90 to 150. Not bad.
Players like WGS’ software because the games are quick, and are available by download, Flash (your browser) or mobile device.
The one complaint? The games look dull.
But that’s subjective. Who knows, you might really like the way they look. And besides, players say their games are like playing on a mixture of RTG and Rival Gaming.
Anyway, you be the judge. Here are some of the titles you can play.
Classic Slots – Cash Grab, Crazy Cherry, Double Gold, Triple Triple Gold, Liberty 7s, Red White and Win, Pay Dirt and Haunted Reels.
5-Reel Slots – Jester’s Wild, Funky Chicken, King Tiger, Dragon Master, Cool Bananas, Fat Cat, Doctor Love, Monster Money, Cherry Blossoms, Lucky Lady, Agent Cash, etc.
7-Reel Slots – Yes, these exist. There are two titles to play – Lucky 7s and Farming Futures.
Progressive Slots – There are 7 machines: Island Stud Poker, Progressive Blackjack, Pay Dirt (which sounds like an RTG title), Mega Money Mine, Red White and Win, Treasure Trail and Win Place or Show. Jackpots are currently valued anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000.
Side note: Apparently when English Harbour closed there was approximately $1.5 million in total jackpot money. However, when the company came back online there was significantly less money (there’s only $300,000-ish now, and none of the machines have paid out since they came back online). You have to wonder – where did that money go?
Table Games – This includes: Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Perfect Pairs Blackjack, Red Dog, 10-High Holdem Poker, Five Card Mulligan Poker, Casino Hold’em Poker, Downtown Vegas Blackjack, Craps, Progressive Blackjack, Classic Blackjack, American Roulette, European Roulette, Vegas Strip Blackjack, Atlantic City Blackjack, European Rules Blackjack, etc
Video Poker – This include single hand, multi-hand and 100-hand variations. Some of the titles you can play are: Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker, Double Joker and Tens or Better.
Other – Keno, Poker Slots, Bingo Bucks, Poker Dice and Dazzling Dice.
Mobile – This includes Dragon Master, Cash Grab, Jacks or Better, Vegas Strip Blackjack, Wheel of Chance (looks a lot like Wheel of Fortune), Amanda Panda and the Jackpot Journey (looks like Indiana Jones), Funky Chicken, Amazing 7s, Hot Roller, Fat Cat and Cool Banana.
A pretty decent selection of games.
I remember reading a review that said some of WGS’ titles obviously mirrored other licensed movie or game titles – but without the license. And that’s definitely the case for some machines, like Wheel of Chance or Amanda Panda.
Whatever, I’ll take it.
Wager Gaming Technology Casinos
I have good news.
There isn’t any rogue or not recommended casinos on CasinoMeister.com.
The tiny exception is GoldenCasino.com, once owned by Vegas Technology. They’re listed on Casino Meister for not listening to players’ complaints. That said, the website now is merely a bridge page to Liberty Slots Casino, so I don’t think you have anything to worry about.
Here are the 4 casinos powered by WGS:
- Miami Club Casino
- Liberty Slots Casino
- Lincoln Casino
- Intertops Casino – Doesn’t allow US players.
- Red Stag Casino – Coming soon.
According to my research all the US casinos are average at best. If you do decide to sign up to one, though, Miami Club is the slightly better option for Americans, while Intertops is the go-to choice for everyone else.
