The Enigmatic Liberty Slots Casino OnlineBy: Fabian Rictor, Tuesday March 20th 2012

It is human nature to be attracted to the mysterious and this applies to the online casino industry as well. But one has to be extremely careful because such an attraction can at times prove fatal. This is exactly what is being said about a new online casino that was launched late in 2011 under the name of Liberty Slots. The first two things that players should check at new online casinos are the licensing authority and the software provider and the Liberty Slots online casino web site does not identify any of the two.
However, several online casino industry forums have identified the software provider as WGS Technology. Though the name has not been heard of in the online casino industry before, the web site of the software provider claims to have 14 years experience and a portfolio of 100 games. The web site has been copyrighted in 2011, which is unusual for an Internet based company of 14 years standing. The web site of WGS Technology provides almost no information. Even critical information like corporate ownership, location, history, games list and fairness testing certification are missing. There is an online e-mail form mainly for licensing enquiries.
To add to the mystery is the fact that a 14 year old gaming software provider has only one licensee – Liberty Slots online casino. The Liberty Slots web site offers some more details than the WGS Technology web site. It provides a complete games list, a January 2012 certificate of game fairness from Certified Fair Gambling and a link to its Slots Vendor affiliate program. The games list is identical to that of the software provider Vegas Technology, which also used the services of Certified Fair Gambling to audit its software. The Liberty Slots web site looks very similar to that of English Harbour online casino. The online tournaments and promotions are also very similar.
The English Harbour group that was powered by software from Vegas Technology suddenly went of the market following the Black Friday indictments in the USA in April 2011. In fact all Vegas Technology online casino groups shut shop. The rumors in the online gaming industry state that WGS Technology bought the software from Vegas Technology. This would account for the similarities described above. The puzzling aspect is that there is no report of such a deal in the media. The question being asked is why all the secrecy if the deal was above board. There is nothing new and nothing wrong in software products changing ownership.
If this was not enough to bring out the red flag rogue casino alerts there is more to come. Liberty Slots online casino has been spamming players in the online casino industry. The players have expressed puzzlement and consternation at online casino forums as to how Liberty Slots got hold of their e-mail addresses. An even more disturbing issue is that members of the customer support team are being vague and evasive on crucial issues. They have been unable to tell the players where Liberty Slots has been licensed or if it has been licensed at all.
The saga of Liberty Slots is a text book case of how to identify a casino that exhibits all the signs of going rogue. Whereas one does not have sufficient evidence to convict and punish the new online casino and its software provider, the players would be better off giving Liberty Slots a wide berth.
