Our Story

WMS has been a leader in interactive entertainment since Harry Williams founded WMS’ predecessor company in 1943. A Stanford University-trained engineer who devised the “tilt" mechanism for pinball machines, Williams changed forever the nature of pinball in America. The Company brought this spirit of innovation to the home video market in the 1980s and to the casino gaming industry in the early 1990s. Today, through its online interactive business, WMS is also developing products, services and end-to-end solutions that address global online wagering, casual, social and mobile gaming opportunities.


Today, WMS is a leading supplier of innovative gaming products and enabling technologies to casinos worldwide. The Company’s game portfolio includes many of the industry’s most popular games, including well-established proprietary titles such as Reel 'em In!®, Life of Luxury®, Zeus™ and Jackpot Party® themes, as well as licensed titles such as MONOPOLY™, THE WIZARD OF OZ™, THE LORD OF THE RINGS™, CLUE™ and THE PRICE IS RIGHT™ themes.

Over the last several years, WMS has emerged as the industry innovator in establishing new standards for casino gaming entertainment with the introduction of revolutionary technology platforms: Community Gaming®, Adaptive Gaming®, Transmissive Reels® gaming and Sensory Immersion gaming technologies.
