They are one of the few software providers that still allow players from the United States to play. They offer 8 video poker games in both single and multi-play formats.
The best game to play at WGS casinos is the full pay Jacks or Better which has a pay back of 99.54. In addition to single and multi-hand they also have Bump It Up versions of Jacks or Better and Joker Poker. The Bump It Up games are are very similar to IGT's Multistrike games and offer multipliers of X2, X4 and X8.
WGS are the only software provider that we have found that offers video poker tournaments. These tournaments offer a great chance to get more play for your money and win prizes.

Odds on Gaming was established in 2003 by the now closed English Harbor Group after they switched from Microgaming software. The group ran several popular casinos including English Harbor Casino, Caribbean Gold and Super Slots which all closed in 2011.
In 2005 the software was renamed to Vegas Technology and received a major upgrade with over 100 games and all new video poker options. The company was then acquired by Wager Gaming Systems who have continued to upgrade and improve the software platform.
Today, Wager Gaming Systems (WGS) casinos feature all of the video poker variations listed above as well as a full suite of casino games including table games and a vast selection of slot machines. They also have some of the best tournaments available online including freeroll and buy-in options.
