Slot manufacturer’s application uses G2S protocol

WMS became the first company to receive approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission for a networked gaming system and remote configuration and download application using the Gaming Standards Association’s award-winning G2S protocol.

The approval for WMS’ WAGE-NET (Wide Area Game Enhanced Network) system follows completion of a successful Nevada field trial at the Bellagio hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

The WAGE-NET networked gaming system, designed to comply with GSA’s standards, is a suite of multiple system applications and platform technologies that will increase the operational efficiency and revenue-generating capabilities of gaming floors at casinos.

 “WMS’ WAGE-NET system was intuitively easy to install and performed all the capabilities that were expected. The WMS team provided excellent support and service throughout the entire field trial,” said Justin Beltram, vice president of slot operations at the Bellagio. We look forward to participating with WMS in future trials as they enhance the system and add new features and functionality.”

WMS President Orrin J. Edidin noted that working collaboratively with the team at the Bellagio during the successful field trial was an outstanding experience.

"We are readying additional capabilities to offer customers an even richer solution of applications and products for their gaming floor, including our Portal Technology Platform and Account Based Wagering System, both of which were demonstrated last month in Las Vegas at the Global Gaming Exposition, as we proceed on our path to ultimate commercialization of the WAGE-NET system in fiscal 2010.”
