The rate of loyalty from members of PlayNow Casino is astounding. Yes, it is the only legal online gambling avenue for residents of BC, Canada, leaving them little choice, but beyond that, PlayNow Casino actually has a significant measure of favorable qualities. Those assets just got better with the extended partnership of the Canadian online casino operator, BCLC, and WMS Industries.
WMS has been supplying BCLC’s land-based gambling halls with slot machines for over 14 years now. The new deal inked between these companies will see WMS Gaming providing online slot machines to PlayNow Casino as well.
WMS Gaming currently supports 60 online casino slots, including a 6-title series of Star Trek video slots, its most popular series – Wizard of Oz and the new sequel, Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers – the Bruce Lee martial arts themed video slots and the mythologically omnipotent Zeus slots; just to name a few.
PlayNow Casino’s current line-up of games is already considerable. A non-conformist by nature, the operator employs multiple software platforms to provide a more versatile gaming experience to its members. The addition of WMS Industries’ online slots will further expand the BCLC’s roster. At present, PlayNow Casino offers 32 online slots, with pay-lines ranging from 1 to 30. Integrating the slots collection of WMS Gaming will drive the selection to nearly 100.
After working together for more than 14 years, the vice president of BCLC, Rhonda Garvey, commented on the intensified partnership with WMS. “Many WMS slot games have become player favourites in our land-based casinos,” Garvey said. “We are delighted to now offer our online players the opportunity to play the virtual version of WMS’ popular slot games.”
Another statement came in from WMS Industries President, Orrin J Edidin. “Players at BCLC’s casinos have loved WMS’ great gaming content for many years…” explicated the enthusiastic director, “…we are delighted to expand our relationship to bring this same level of excitement and entertainment to BCLC’s online players.”
If the WMS brand sounds familiar, it’s probably because the company has made headlines recently in the United States as well. Subsidiary of WMS Industries, WMS Gaming, received approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission back in September. Nevada is the very first state in the US to espouse a regulatory structure for legal online poker. WMS is obviously widening its borders in preparation for a much larger undertaking in the online sector of the gaming industry.
WMS Industries also made the news last week when a press release announced the newest seat on its board of directors; at the same time proving that a job at McDonald’s really does have potential for a highly successful future. Matthew Paul, the former Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of McDonald’s Corporation until he retired in 2008, had been an employing of the global food service franchise since 1993, working his way up to a head office in 2001. From flipping burgers to a seat on the WMS Industries Board of Directors; oh, the mysterious tapestries the threads fate do weave!
