WagerWorks is a unique online casino games software supplier in two respects. It is the only major software supplier to have a base in the land slot machine sector through its holding company IGT. WagerWorks allows gaming operators to pick and choose games from its portfolio and offer them to players alongside games of other software providers.
As is the case for all software providers the focus of WagerWorks online casino games is on slots. Two types of slot games dominate. One is progressive slots and the other is branded slots. Leading the progressive jackpots is the MegaJackpots network consisting of Monopoly, Cluedo and Cleopatra. This network has a reset value of £1.5 million, the largest in the industry. The most popular slots from WagerWorks are associated with leading global brands. Foremost among them is Hasbro the multinational toy company. Monopoly and Cluedo are the most well known board games. WagerWorks online slots based on these games are under license from Hasbro. TRANSFORMERS is also licensed by Hasbro. The Dungeons and Dragons slot games with their wizard characters are licensed from Wizards of the Coast Inc.
WagerWorks slot games have some very innovative features. Some of the games have a feature called jackpot accumulators. Whenever these appear on the reels the jackpot amount increases. The accumulated jackpot is then up for grabs in the bonus round. A recent WagerWorks release is Noah’s Ark. This has a feature called split symbols. Some symbols appear as two on the reels making it possible for winning paylines to have up to 10 symbols.
The next category of online casino games from WagerWorks is table games. Here the focus is on blackjack, roulette and poker based games, but baccarat and craps are offered as well. The popular land casino variants of roulette and blackjack are offered. What distinguished WagerWorks from other software suppliers are the innovative unique variants of these games. Double Bonus Spin Roulette has an additional yellow well on the wheel and if the ball falls in this then the player gets bonus payouts through a free spin. 3 Wheel Roulette and Roulette with Hot Streak Bonus are other innovative variants. The branded Double Attack Blackjack is licensed by Nu Games. In this game players can double their wager after seeing the dealer’s up card.
The WagerWorks portfolio is wanting on video poker games. The attraction is the series of video poker variants labeled Phantom Belle. In these games and unseen phantom wearing gloves deals the cards across the table. This makes a welcome change from the standard presentation of the other online gaming software providers.
WagerWorks offers more fixed odds games than any other software developer with the exception of Playtech. Most of these games are in the Hi-Lo format. In these games the player has to predict whether the next outcome will be higher or lower than the previous one. WagerWorks has put this game in the context of a number of interesting themes. Mel’s Hi-Lo Golf has numbers from 1 to 50 being generated after Mel’s golf strokes. Down the Hatch Hi-Lo has a beer drinking theme, while Underground Hi-Lo features the London tube railway.
WagerWorks casino games can be played at Alderney licensed Virgin Casino.
