WMS Industries Incorporated, an American slot machine and lottery designer and manufacturer, has released a statement that its subsidiary, WMS Gaming Incorporated has been given an interactive gaming manufacturer and service provider licenses by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

WMS Industries which is based in Waukegan runs developer Jadestone, JackpotParty.com’s internet casino and the Facebook app which is a Lucky Cruise slot-like app that uses credits instead of real money. They said that the interactive gaming licences will allow it to collaborate with gaming operators that are based in Nevada so that they can bring online poker to all those who live in the Western state.

“The granting of WMS Gaming’s 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 Edidin, President for WMS Industries.

“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.”

The state of Nevada has lately become the first state to adopt statues and make a regulatory framework for online poker in the US.  Also, the Nevada Gaming Commission unanimously authorized WMS Gaming’s application.

“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,” said Edidin.

“Nevada is a recognised 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.”
