Wagerworks / IGT Software Review and Casinos List

IGT / Wagerworks

IGT was the first of the land-based gaming companies to release their games online. While this might seem great there is quite a big catch in the fact that a lot of countries are excluded from playing. The good news is that if you are in an allowed country you have access to some of the world's best games at some of the most solid online casinos.

Important : IGT casinos have a long list of restricted countries. They do not accept players from the USA, Canada or Australia. For other countries see the casino websites.

IGT Software Review

Wagerworks was launched in 2004 and saw the first of the Las Vegas casinos coming online with the Hard Rock casino opening with their software. Unfortunately with the US banned from playing the casino soon closed leaving a great software company with no online casinos.

In 2005, IGT stepped in and acquired the Silicon Gaming Group and with the purchase came Wagerworks. Quickly several online casinos launched with the software the biggest name being Virgin Casino - a brand made famous by Sir Richard Branson. Virgin Casino is still one of the biggest Wagerworks sites. In 2011 IGT combined Wagerworks into their main brand so now the online casino software is known simply as IGT.

Instead of going with a free download, Wagerworks casinos require no download to play. This means you can be playing online within minutes of visiting the casino web sites

The game range at Wagerworks casinos is growing slowly with one or two new releases each month. Some of the Vegas classics such as Cluedo, Monopoly, The Price is Right and Press Your Luck are already online as well as the highly popular Cleopatra, Cleopatra 2 and Wolf Run.

The casinos also have two of the IGT Mega Jackpots with the Monopoly and Cluedo progressive slots. In a bit an odd twist the jackpots are paid out in installments just like at land based casinos. This is unheard of online with all of the other software companies paying out progressives in a single payment.

The jackpots do start at a big £1,500,000 so they are quite attractive you just have to remember that if you win you will be getting paid over the next 20 years which is our opinion is not the greatest way of getting a jackpot win.

All Wagerworks casinos are strictly regulated and all games are required to show the exact payout percentage. This means that you can actually see and compare the pay out percentages for the individual slot games - something that you cannot do at a land-based casinos.

Every Wagerworks casino is well worth playing at. The strict licensing requirements mean that they are all top notch sites with fast payouts, great games, good customer support and of course big jackpots. The only catch is the big list of excluded countries including but not limited to the United States, Australia and Germany.
