Williams Interactive LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Chicago-based WMS Industries, has been selected by the Delaware State Lottery to supply its popular slot games to players visiting online casinos in the state. The company’s games will be available subject to successful contract negotiations with the Delaware State Lottery.
Online players visiting Delaware State Lottery online casinos will have the chance to play many of WMS' popular slot games, such as THE WIZARD OF OZ Ruby Slippers, Invaders from the Planet Moolah, Reel 'em In! and Super Jackpot Party themes, in addition to original Williams Interactive content like the recently released KISS: Shout it Out Loud! theme built on WMS’ Colossal Reels game engine and BRUCE LEE built on WMS’ Money Burst game engine. The Williams Interactive game portfolio features a wide variety of play mechanics designed to target many different player preferences, to cater to a large number of player segments to best serve the needs of online customers.
Once the online site is launched, the games will be accessible for play through the Williams Interactive remote game server integration capability, which currently provides millions of European online casino players. The games would be integrated into the recently announced online gaming platform provided by Scientific Games and 888 Holdings.
The lottery evaluation committee's approval of Williams Interactive as a game content provider followed a competitive selection process designed to identify the most capable providers suitable to serve the needs of the Delaware Lottery.
The first U.S. state to implement comprehensive intrastate iGaming legislation, including slots, poker and bingo, Delaware has long been an industry model for state-regulated gaming. This is another example of Delaware's leadership in protecting state-sponsored gaming to maximize tax revenues for its citizens. The Delaware Lottery will be the sole regulator of real-money internet gaming for the state with the games branded and marketed through the State's three casinos.
“Players at Delaware’s casinos have enjoyed WMS gaming content for years, and we are thrilled to bring this same level of excitement and entertainment to Delaware’s online players between casino visits,” said Orrin Edidin, president of WMS Industries and CEO and president of Williams Interactive. “We feel that the convergence of player experiences between land-based and online gaming is a key factor to success in the future of our industry, and by leveraging our vast portfolio of proven game themes and play mechanics we have the perfect mix of games to cater to a wide array of player preferences. The expanded availability of our proven online gaming content is a great endorsement of our content and approach to services and solutions and in the rapidly evolving iGaming industry.”
