Once considered one of the best and most respected of the up-and coming casino software companies, Vegas Technology is no longer a major player in the industry. The summer of 2011 saw each of Vegas Tech’s casinos initially stop accepting American customers and then close their doors entirely. In 2012, Vegas Technology rebranded itself as Wager Gaming Technology, aka Wager Gaming Systems (WGS), and reentered the gaming market with a new casino, Liberty Slots Casino.
Vegas Technology was first launched in the late nineties as Odds On Software, making it one of the first software developers to emerge in the new industry. The company was later revamped and in 2005 became Vegas Technology, basing their operations in Antigua and Barbuda. Though not as large as some of the software developers, Vegas Technology is a fully accredited and compliant software developer with all the standard bells and whistles making up top-tier software platforms.
One thing that makes Vegas Technology stand apart from many of their competitors is that they own and operate the online casinos powered by their software platform. That gives Vegas Tech final say in all casino matters. For years, Vegas Tech had an open-door policy with the United States, allowing any of their casinos to operate in America. In 2011, though, facing uncertainty due to the legal issues surrounding unrelated online gambling competitors, Vegas Technology pulled its casinos out of the U.S. and later shut down its online casinos entirely.
After months out of the industry, Vegas Technology returned at the end of 2011 with a new online casino, Liberty Slots Casino. Like the previous casinos owned and operated by Vegas Tech, Liberty Slots is accredited with a Fairness Certificate bestowed by third-party testing house Jacobson Gaming LLC. The Certified Fair Gaming (CFG) Seal designates monthly audits are being fulfilled.
As for the playability factor, Vegas Technology is one of the fastest platforms out there. The graphics are sharp-looking, though not necessarily the best. There are now over 60 casino games available on the download version Liberty Slots Casino, with a smaller number available in no-download Flash. Vegas Technology offers a large selection of inexpensive slot tournaments, including freerolls, and the support staff is available 24/7. If Liberty Slots proves to be a successful endeavor, it is likely that Vegas Technology - as WGS - will wade deeper into the online gambling waters and begin launching more casinos.
