888 Holdings Teams Up With WMS Gaming to Dominate USA!888 Holdings has just announced that it had managed to create a deal with the American gambling company WMS Gaming regarding the provision of online poker software and gaming services to US clients. Renowned European online gambling and software provider 888 Holdings announced today that it formed a partnership with the US venture WMS Gaming. The deal will permit WMS Gaming to acquire quality online poker software solutions from the renowned European company. WMS will then be able to resell these products to its current US land-casino customers. US brick and mortar casinos will then be able to offer play money online poker services to their player bases. After online poker will become legal in the States, then they could immediately switch to real money gameplay as well. In order to prepare entering the US online poker market, both 888 Holdings and WMS Gaming have applied for an online gambling license in Nevada. The Nevadan Gambling Commission has not yet approved these applications but it’s expected it will do so in the near future. 888 Holdings CEO Brian Mattingley commented the following: “WMS is one of the main gaming suppliers in America, with a network of relationships with land-based operators that is second to none.” “The combination of 888’s cutting edge online poker platform and WMS’ customer relationships, marketing and distribution capabilities, provides the opportunity to build a substantial online presence.” WMS Gaming President Orrin Edidin commented that he believes this strategic partnership with 888 Holdings will highly benefit his company. He based this on the long-time experience of 888.com in the online poker business, which will enable WMS to offer the most comprehensive online poker platform solutions in the States. 888 Holdings is one of the biggest online poker and online casino companies that operate in Europe. 888 Holding’s two main brands are 888 Casino and 888 Poker. The venture uses a proprietary software platform which creates a completely unique online poker and casino gaming experience.
