What the hell has happened to WMS?

Or SG or whatever they are called now.

Are they deliberately trying to bankrupt themselves, at least from the WMS brand point of view. I used to really like playing their slots. Really good variety of ideas and variance. Since the move to HTML though they have gone to absolute sh1t and not just because of recent awful releases.

Firstly abaondon the auto spins. Yes I know they are not the only ones but I get very bored, not to mention repetitive wrist strain having to click every single bloody spin.

If that wasn’t enough it looks like they got a 5 year old to do the re-program. Awful looking, simple appearance on a lot of them. Terrible slow spins and I am not even someone who is a fan of turbo spins.

The final nail though has to be the showing of an outcome of a spin before the thing has completed or, in the case of Motezuma, before it’s even span in! I mean WTF! The latest is Dragons Inferno. Really like this game but the mystery of the replicating symbols is lost somewhat when it shows the winning amount immediately.

Seriously how can they balls this up so badly.

Yup couldn't be any worse, and why get rid of the autospin when everyone else still has it?

I think most WMS games where flash based. Since flash is being abandoned for many years they needed to port over their content. Maybe they got lowzy. I dont see many offers in online casino working with WMS these days. For that reason alone i stick to visiting landbased where they have these original slots as they where intented. Much better.

My experiences with Raging Rhino have been brutal as of late. Can’t even bonus nowadays. Endless dead spins, low paying wins and two diamond teases.

I especially hate some of the newer-ish games from WMS where there's like a "sidebar" on the right with the spin button. Every time you spin, the bar hides. Then after a spin, it slowly comes back. Not only the games do not have autospins but spinning the games is SO GODDAMNED SLOW that I'll die of old age before I get a bonus in them.

I only play WMS at land based casinos now where the games still are entertaining. Lower RTP might be a thing but at least they spin at a decent rate and quickspinning is possible, too. Plus imo a lot of good WMS games aren't even released online in the first place so there's that too.

Doesn't the removal of autoplay have something or another to do with the UK laws or something? Why do ROW have to suffer from that? Why aren't those options hidden only from UK players?

The only great thing so far when it comes to the games that are released now in Sweden is that I got the autospin button back for VWS games. I can play Rhino again :)
I hate the new version of Rhino since my eyes are hurting when playing it, but with autospin I don't need to look;)

They changed the math model for ruby slippers too

didn't play it as much as the other two but alas a shame to hear that also.

Very fair games and enjoyable in flash / pre maths change.

One of my favourite terms sprang to mind at the time "Why fix something which is not broken?"

Appreciate they had to upgrade due to flash becoming extinct but nothing wrong with the original mechanics which were around for years. Could have done a much better job with the programming, especially given the huge popularity of these titles.

Another prime example of GREED!

Good ol' memories. I really liked that site and it's so different from any others we have even right now with the ability we had to chat with other players and all that. The site-wide progressives too although I never managed to trigger them :(

WMS is dying man.
Voted them as best slots provider 3 years ago and look at them now.
Completely destroying themselves with utter rubbish remakes like Dragons Inferno not to mention their move to a new HTML platform which killed their slots like Raging Rhino and Montezuma for example.
Montezuma already stops the multiplier wheel and I know before the reels have spun whether I got a retrigger or not, aweful!!!

Hardly play them anymore.

Sad as they used to be one of my fave slots.

Meh, probably very popular in the UK but I never liked that place.
Hardly managed any WD's as their WMS slots had lower RTP settings due to the linked jackpots which I have never ever won.
I always thought of it to be a bit of a shady casino.
Sure they did pay out and had loads of fans but the low RTP settings put me off.

They offered bonuses fairly often and, while I can't remember the specifics, I think the bonuses were really good. Either they had no wagering or at least very low wagering. Plus a wide variety of WMS games. You know if you now go to any casino you probably can find Rhino and Monte right? Well WMS has so many more games in their repertoire but you can't find these games almost anywhere else. Some of them are found on Skill On Net sites, but not all even then. There's more to WMS than just Rhino/Monte but people don't even know those games exist because no one has them.
