WMS CEO Brian Gamache

Just days before the recent IGE show in London, slot manufacturer WMS Gaming announced it will start online gaming operations in the U.K. in 2011.

WMS will start in the U.K., a regulated online jurisdiction, and if all goes accordingly, eventually branch out into other regulated markets.

Brian Morgan, the new executive director of online gaming for WMS, said, “We are the leaders in casino innovation and we want to leverage that insight online. We will only trade in markets where e-gaming is expressly legal, but there is plenty on our radar, and we will expand market by market.”

“WMS will debut its capabilities and solutions that harness the scale of the internet to pursue online wagering opportunities in the United Kingdom,” WMS Chairman and CEO Brian Gamache said in a statement.
