Wizard Gaming Left Without Clients After Online Casino All Star Slots switch provider
Gambling Online | August 12, 2009
Online gaming software provider Wizard Gaming have been dealt a major blow with the news that All Star Slots Â– currently their only major client Â– will move from their platform to that of Real Time Gaming.
Sam Busch, casino manager at All Star Slots, wrote to site members and affiliates informing them of the impending switch earlier this week and also listed the reasons why the casino found RTGÂ's offering far more attractive.
According to BuschÂ's letter, a larger range and variety of games Â– including dice and table games Â– more and better bonuses and improved payment and depositing options were the foremost reasons for them to make the switch to the new platform.
Operating on Wizard Gaming, All Star Slots offered just 20 games and one standard version of blackjack, compared with the 80 plus slots and the multitude of table and dice games that the site will now offer after signing up to RTGÂ's casino service.
WizardÂ's graphics and sound effects are still considered to be state-of-the-art, but the software provider has been slow to supply updates and has added only a few new games over the last year. Additionally, the company only funded two progressive jackpots Â– both of which were well under $10,000 Â– while RTG has several games at or around the $500,000 mark.
Whether this lack of progress over the past year was the driving factor behind the switch or whether there are behind-the-scenes business issues involved is yet to be disclosed, but certainly, with no casinos on their books itÂ's going to be a tough few months for Wizard Gaming.
