Launched in late 2008, Wizard Gaming is one of the "newer" refreshing faces to grace the online gambling sector. Online Casino Suite was very excited to first hear about Wizard Gaming, and following our in-depth review, which included a one-on-one interview with one of Wizard Gaming's founders, we are happy to report our excitement has not subsided one bit. That said, here's the scoop on the fast growing Wizard Gaming Software.
In development since the 4th quarter of 2006, Wizard Gaming's entrance on the gaming scene in 2008 was certainly a timely one. With a handful of new online casino licensees opening their doors just at the same time Microgaming announced they would be leaving the U.S. market, Wizard Gaming has helped fill the giant void left by Microgaming casinos. In other words, Wizard Gaming casino's possess all of the necessary credentials and backend components for securely and efficiently processing funds from U.S. citizens. Furthermore, Wizard's primary focus is on the slots player - a longtime casino favorite of the U.S. online gambler. In fact, Wizard's slot games aim to be second to none amongst other online casino software providers, and have thus far proven to set a new precedent in slots game play.
Security and fairness is ensured with a software license through the Curacao Gaming Control Board (under the Netherlands Antilles government), as well as an RNG Certification through Australia based iTechLabs. A premiere online gaming software testing house, iTech Labs has been white-listed by the UK Gambling Commission and is able to test software platforms according to standards imposed by the Isle of Man's 2001 Online Gambling Regulation Act, Gibraltar's 2005 Gambling Ordinance, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and the aforementioned UK Gambling Commission. Continued monitoring of the RNG source code signature ensures no alterations are made. To see for yourself, view the Wizard Gaming RNG certificate published on the iTechLabs website.
Possessing all the credentials necessary for guaranteeing a safe and fair hand at each and every online casino licensee, Wizard Gaming also deserves praise for the innovation of the software platform itself. As mentioned, Wizard Gaming's specialty is slots. Consequently, a diverse selection of 23 slots awaits players on the front end. These include sixteen 5-reel video slots - some of which offer bonus rounds and free spin features - two progressive jackpot 5-reel video slots (Trust Fund Baby and Opulence), and four classic 3-reel slots. Table game fans need not fret, for Wizard is poised to release a Blackjack game near the end of 2008, as well as video poker, craps, roulette, baccarat and keno by mid-2009.
To say that Wizard Gaming is a player-focused company is an understatement. Version 3.0 of their software platform was launched based on direct player feedback and includes new and improved audio assets, fantastic spin animations and new scatter/wild symbol animations. Players will also appreciate the transparency of Wizard's software platform. All financial transactions and detailed game play are logged and recorded for each player's perusal. Furthermore, the bonus management system is as equally transparent. In fact, it's the most transparent and efficient bonus manager we've seen. No more second-guessing about the terms and conditions governing your bonus because it's all laid out for you in an innovative and user-friendly format. Online Casino Suite has seen the prototype of this system at Wizard Gaming's first casino licensees and we were very impressed to say the least.
From the looks of it, the gaming community at large is impressed as well. Two online casino licensees were launched within weeks of the software debut - and there's more to come. Player feedback has also been overwhelmingly positive. The fact that Wizard Gaming decided to keep players in the loop right from the start of launching their software is a testament to this up and coming software developer. Here at Online Casino Suite, we will certainly be on the lookout for new licensees and more innovations from Wizard Gaming Software.
