Wager Works Software Review

IGT is a known leader in gaming entertainment and is closely intertwined with WagerWorks success. WagerWorks was originally a subsidiary of slot machine giant Silicon Gaming. When IGT absorbed Silicon gaming, the WagerWorks team took it as a signal to strike out on their own, creating quality online gaming software that they could franchise to numerous online casino sites.

They were so successful at this that IGT came back into the picture, and in 2005 acquired WagerWorks to facilitate and expand the WagerWorks brand. WagerWorks online gaming software was placed in more and bigger online casinos than ever before.

Layout and Structure

Some casinos emphasize realism with their skins, while others try to advertise their brand as much as possible. The WagerWorks approach seems to be to stamp their casinos with a unique feel so that they are unmistakable as WagerWorks casinos.

The most highly trafficked of the WagerWorks casinos, 888.com/Casino On Net, actually has a circle of game icons, rather than a bar, with a little Flash movie in the middle. Selecting any of these icons brings the player to a game area, with specific, no-nonsense game icons. Players can roll over these icons to see the games of their choice in a special preview window provided for this purpose.


Game Graphics and Sound Effects


For an unforgettable video slots or video poker experience, WagerWorks is your casino. Exotic slot options like Knights and Maidens or Spider-Man are accompanied by thrilling game sounds, cool animations and well-rendered symbols.

The video poker options are great to look at, especially the almost overwhelming power poker, which allows players to play 50 full video poker hands at the same time. Table games like blackjack and roulette have pretty standard graphics and sound. They are not quite as impressive as the slots, but certainly good enough to get the job done.


Variety of Games

WagerWorks casinos has a number of fun slot games, like the aforementioned Knights and Maidens and Spider Man, plus Fantastic Four, Gold Medal Mania and Treasure Twirl. Video Poker options include the top favorites like jacks or better and deuces wild, as well as games like aces and face and the previously noted power poker. The full array of table games is also on the menu at a WagerWorks casino, meaning blackjack, craps, baccarat, Pai Gow poker, roulette and most of the rest.
