sky-betting-gaming-wms-online-content-agreementSky Vegas Casino and Williams Interactive LLC (WMS) have announced that they are going to enter into an online content licensing agreement. An agreement that will give Sky Vegas Casino access to the WMS library of slot machine games for the desktop and mobile gaming platforms. The agreement is made possible by the partnership that exists between Sky Vegas Casino and gaming & software supplier OpenBet. Ostensibly, OpenBet integrates the WMS’ online content onto their platform, which is then used by Sky Betting & Gaming.

As we approached the end of 2012, Sky Vegas Casino announced it was going to join the trend and turn mobile. The new Sky Vegas mobile casino was launched to the delight of its customers. Those customers will be even more delighted with the news that variety is on its way courtesy of WMS.

 “We are delighted to add the WMS gaming content to our online casino. 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.” Said Samuel Downey, Head of Casino and Games at Sky Betting & Gaming.

Sky Betting & Gaming, a subsidiary of BSkyB, won the 2012 Operator of the Year award bestowed by eGaming Review magazine. The collaboration with WMS will see the Sky Vegas brand offering proven WMS titles such as THE WIZARD OF OZ, Reel ‘Em In and Jackpot Party.

 “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. The agreement again highlights the growing momentum we are generating in expanding the worldwide audience for our gaming content. I’m confident that our industry-leading content will provide excitement and great gaming experiences to the Sky Vegas online community and that together we will achieve great success in the years to come.” Said Orrin J. Edidin, President of WMS Industries and CEO and President of Williams Interactive.
