WMS Granted Nevada Interactive Gaming Licenses

WMS Gaming Inc., a subsidiary of WMS Industries Inc. (NYSE:WMS), a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of games, digital gaming content and gaming machines to the worldwide gaming industry, announced today that the Nevada Gaming Commission unanimously approved WMS for both an interactive gaming manufacturer license and a service provider license in the State of Nevada. The interactive gaming licenses enable the Company to partner with Nevada casino operators to provide online poker to players.

Nevada is the first state to adopt statutes and develop a regulatory framework for online poker in the United States, and the Nevada Gaming Commission is the first regulatory agency to award statewide online gaming licenses.

“The granting of WMS’ interactive gaming licenses in Nevada is an important milestone in the initiatives we’ve undertaken to support our casino customers’ online gaming entertainment needs,” said Orrin J. Edidin, President of WMS. “We can now offer casino operators in Nevada an online, real-money poker platform along with a comprehensive, industry-leading suite of white-label, casino-branded interactive play-for-fun gaming entertainment products and managed services. These products and services are fully expandable to provide a proven foundation for the eventual transition to other online real-money gaming capabilities, when it becomes legally enabled in other markets.

“Just as WMS has a legacy of developing innovative products to meet our customers’ in-casino needs, we are committed to offering our customers the interactive products and services they need to provide their players a great online gaming entertainment experience, support their unique brand online and establish a strong distinctive online gaming community,” Edidin added. “Nevada is a recognized leader in gaming regulation and is moving consistently forward with rules and regulations for interactive gaming enablement and we are looking forward to providing our customers in the state with industry-leading products and services in a safe and secure online environment.”
