WMS Combines Mechanical Reels With Multi-Games

WMS Gaming Inc. has released a new “for sale” gaming machine that utilizes its proprietary Transmissive Reels gaming platform. It is the first mechanical reel machine to offer multi-game features, and will also allow operators to utilize networked, served-based gaming on mechanical reel machines.
Players will be able to choose from four unique games, each with its own unique pay table and bonusing.
Orrin J. Edidin, president of WMS, commented, “With the launch of this new product we are expanding our for-sale product offerings while continuing to demonstrate execution against our multi-year product plan whereby we use our foundational technologies for server-enabled gaming in advance of the launch of networked systems.”
The Transmissive Reels gaming platform combines the traditional mechanical reel slot machine with video capabilities, utilizing the WMS’ CPU-NXT2 operating system.
