Beauty Comes in Small Packages
In the last three years, Pro Wager Systems’ focus has turned to HTML5, with the company releasing customisable video poker that’s optimised for desktop and mobile, whether viewed in portrait or landscape. At the same time, PWS have augmented their casino software with technology such as iDevAffiliate for affiliate commission tracking. With hosting provided by RackNation, one of the web’s leading hosting companies, Pro Wager Systems’ platform is lightning fast and ultra robust.
While the Ontario firm were working on perfecting their HTML5-based products, they didn’t neglect the Flash games that were once the default multimedia format used by casinos and indeed everyone else on the web. While many software developers limited their casino software to PC versions only, PWS were quick to roll out their multiplayer poker to both Mac and Windows users.
Traditional table games are bread and butter for Pro Wager Systems. They’ve been steadily refining their blackjack and poker software for years, and today the company offers a number of versions of these popular casino games. These are software-based games and not live tables such as those from Pragmatic Play, or the NetEnt live dealer casino games range.
Working with HTML5, PWS have developed multiplayer blackjack that enables 5 players to play together against a single dealer, mimicking a real life casino. The software can support tournament play and allows for customisable graphics. It’s naturally mobile optimised. PWS have developed two builds of the game, one for desktop browsers and the other for mobile.
Pro Wager Systems’ multiplayer poker software is available in HTML5 and also as a downloadable software version. Their take on the world’s most famous card game includes selectable backgrounds and animated 3D avatars that inject some character and personality into the game. Players can select from Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Omaha/8 and Razz as well as selecting single and multi-table tournaments. For the benefit of operators, PWS’ poker lobby is fully customisable. This allows casinos to stamp their imprint on the game from the moment it loads.
When you’re animating the whole thing, who’s to say poker has to be set in a stuffy casino? There are no limits to the potential settings, and PWS have pushed the boat out with their avatar poker tables. The Canadian company have fixed it so that players can experience poker in a prison, alley, picnic, loft and ballroom. There’s even the ability to customise the table graphics. Although Pro Wager Systems are fond of their avatar-based poker tables, they also have a photo mode, allowing players to upload an image for added realism.
Pro Wager Systems’ casino games aren’t limited to poker and blackjack: the firm are equally adept at slots and baccarat. The Canadian company’s HTML5 slots include 9, 15 and 25 payline versions. Because the graphics are fully customisable, it’s easy for operators to create their own branded games, with gaming symbols loaded from a directory. When custom graphics are combined with PWS’ slick animations and sound effects, the results are very impressive indeed.
Examples include Santa's Workshop, which as you can guess, is an online slot themed around Christmas
, while their Frankenslots game has a comic-horror style.
When it comes to bingo, PWS again work with HTML5 to ensure that their software is optimised for players on any device. The development team have gone to great lengths to ensure that the graphics and sound are of a similar calibre to the gameplay and features.
The firm have two versions of bingo: 90 Ball and 75 Ball. Both games accord to UK rules; PWS are also currently working on 80 and 30 ball versions. Players can choose from various modes including auto-daub, auto-claim and manual-dab. Each card denotes the number of calls that are left till bingo can be claimed. Players also have the ability to buy, zoom and scroll up to 100 cards.
While players are busying themselves with the pattern editor and hundreds of pre-designed patterns built into PWS’ 75 Ball Bingo, in the background advanced algorithms are supplying the operator with game and financial reports as well as player data. Casinos can schedule when they would like ‘live’ games to commence and can dispense special bonuses. There’s even an option to enable in-game advertisements, allowing casinos to further boost their revenue. Once again, PWS place the control in the hands of their clients, who are free to tinker with the layout, artwork, audio and caller’s voice as they see fit. New themes can also be released easily to commemorate holidays and other seasonal events.
Ever since Satoshi Nakamoto published his Bitcoin white paper, entrepreneurs have been alert to the potential for the digital currency to be used for gambling. PWS got on that bandwagon early, and have perfected their own Bitcoin casino software. Because Bitcoin obviates the need for casinos to find third party payment processors, its attraction is obvious.
Pro Wager Systems’ Bitcoin casino software is competitively priced, can be installed quickly and is highly customisable. PWS’ package includes a website, backoffice control panel, game server and games that work with Flash or HTML5. All the client needs to supply is a Windows server, domain name and Bitcoin wallet.
PWS in a Nutshell
Visually, their games, such as the Jungle Fever slot machine, aren’t the most beautiful or feature-rich, but Pro Wager Systems’ titles are proficiently put together and what’s more they work consistently well.
The company’s casino software will be of particular interest to clients considering launching their own Bitcoin casino. With PWS providing the complete system, the client is free to focus on what they do best – turning a tidy profit.
