WMS Gaming Inc., a subsidiary of WMS Industries Inc., says that its Adaptive Gaming products – STAR TREK and Reel’em In Compete to Win games – have generated an average of approximately 2,000 new, unique player log-ins per day. Currently, more than 260 casinos have Adaptive Gaming products installed on their slot floors.
WMS’ Adaptive Gaming platform is built on the company’s wide-area network capabilities. The STAR TREK branded series of games allows players to "boldly go where no one has gone before" as they earn medals that unlock new STAR TREK episodes, allowing them to progress through a dynamic storyline where they can save their progress and pick up from where they left off during their next casino visit. WMS recently introduced the fifth episode for the STAR TREK series.
The Reel’em In Compete to Win game, which combines both the Adaptive Gaming system with the WMS Community Gaming foundational technology platform, features a competitive element never before offered in a slot machine. Players select from four characters to compete for a grand prize in an exciting fishing contest, and those winning the largest prize within a casino and nationwide are recognized on leaderboards displayed on high-definition monitors.
This summer, WMS plans to introduce the next-generation version of the Adaptive Gaming platform with games based on the popular entertainment franchise, The Lord of the Rings. This series will feature a new "epic" gaming experience that takes Adaptive Gaming to the next level as players embark on a journey based on the storyline of the motion picture trilogy and collect miles along the way to unlock new and exciting elements of the legendary adventure.
