Anyone who’s spent an appreciable amount of time on a real-life casino floor will be familiar with slots made by Wagerworks. Like their fellow land slot maker Barcrest, they’re owned by renowned gaming giant IGT, though they were initially owned by Silicon Gaming. Wagerworks offer casino, slot and bingo games though nowadays their online presence has been somewhat diluted with the likes of Playtech and Microgaming pushing for increased market share.
Wagerworks’ 2d games often seem outdated in comparison to the state of the art 3d, branded offerings from the aforementioned companies, but that would be a highly-skewed comparison as anyone who really know their stuff will tell you. Wagerworks have decades of accumulated wisdom about what makes slot players tick, from their experience on real casino floors, and their games – whilst superficially less sophisticated than those of their peer group do in fact contain gameplay structures that make for a more enjoyable, addictive and immersive experience than those of their competitors.

Wagerworks most popular games
Wagerworks also know what the UK market wants, and have an unbeatable collection of games branded with imagery and sound from many of the nation’s favourite games and TV shows: The X-Factor, Monopoly, Deal or No Deal, The Price is Right and Family Fortunes have all been given the Wagerworks treatment and the Monopoly game is the highest-grossing slot ever on a UK bingo site. These games follow the UK pub fruit machine formula more faithfully than any other, with boardgame-style circular features and double-up options that have been bringing pleasure to millions for decades.
The company is based in Nevada with offices in Reno and Vegas, though they also have offices in every continent and employ 5,000 people in total; CEO duties are currently undertaken by Patti Hart and with a listing on the S&P 500 Index, Wagerworks are still a huge player in the online gaming world.
Flagship games include some legendary titles that even the most casual gamer will be familiar with: Cleopatra is the most popular slot of all time, period. Whilst it does more justice to the perennial Ancient Egypt theme than any other slot before or since, it’s not until you start playing this slot that it works its magic on you thanks to its gameplay mechanics and carefully-thought out peaks and troughs of dramatic tension.
Wagerworks behind Rainbow Riches slot
You’ll also find the definitive Irish Luck Game at Wagerworks casinos in the form of Rainbow Riches, and if you think that this company are not capable of anything visually innovative then check out Siberian Storm with its unusual take on the all-ways slots theme, or Da Vinci Diamonds, the world’s first falling block game.
Their games may not be the flashiest, or contain your favourite movie characters – but any serious gamer will speak of Wagerworks in glowing terms, so dismiss them at your peril.
