Vegas Technology Australia – A Premium Software Provider
Vegas Technology was once known as OddsOn which was a division of English Harbour, they are now WGS Technology. In 2005, they scooped up the Gambling Online Magazine ‘Top New Casino Software’ award making heads turn in the online casino software industry at that time.
Over the years however, the company branched out to provide services to the US which led to its demise. This software provider saw a few troubles in its existence before recovering its reputation.
The Downfall – Vegas Technology
In 2006, a rigged video poker game had gamblers losing twice as much as they would win which is seen as impractical on a coin flip. The company said that this was an honest error on their end and many online casinos let it pass.
There were also concerns around the use of customer data which belonged to Casino Coins. The email started going out shortly after English Harbour closed. It was rumoured that this was a strategy to avoid paying a revenue share.
Certified Fair Gambling audited their games very closely after this happened to see that their games were honest and fair. This happened on a monthly basis, major game analyses were conducted and the results published on their site. This restored players’ trust in Vegas Technology.
After this gruesome period, Vegas Technology got a chance to redeem themselves. They now have over 100 slot titles. They also have awesome video poker titles, Blackjack, Roulette, Casinos Hold ém Poker, Craps and more. They have download and instant play versions of their software offering easy navigation.
Vegas Technology now focuses on multi-player tournaments with games that offer the tournament mode option. These games come with a guaranteed winnings and several tournaments with ‘free roll’ which is great for new players to get some practise. They have been under the name, WGS Technology since 2011 and have been under new management ever since.
