  • WMS Industries è una azienda statunitense, produttrice di macchine da gioco e per l'intrattenimento. Fondata nel 1943 da Harry E. Williams come Williams Manufacturing Company, è diventata Williams Electronics Inc. nel 1974, e WMS Industries, Inc. dal 1987: WMS è una abbreviazione di Williams.L'azienda è celebre per la sua produzione di flipper, ma anche per diversi videogiochi arcade, quasi tutti presentati durante la cosiddetta età dell'oro: fra questi ultimi Defender, Joust, Robotron: 2084.Ad oggi, la casa produce esclusivamente macchine per il gioco d'azzardo come slot machine e video poker, sotto il nome dell'etichetta WMS Gaming.

  • WMS Industries, Inc. is an American electronic gaming and amusement company with development facilities in Chicago, Illinois. In 2013, it became a wholly owned subsidiary of Scientific Games. The company's main operating subsidiaries are WMS Gaming and Williams Interactive. WMS traces its roots as far back as 1943, to the Williams Manufacturing Company, founded by Harry E. Williams. However, the company that is known today as WMS Industries was formally founded in 1974 as Williams Electronics, Inc.Williams initially was a manufacturer of pinball tables. In 1964 Williams was acquired by jukebox manufacturer Seeburg Corp. and reorganized as Williams Electronics Manufacturing Division. In 1973, the company branched out into the coin-operated arcade video game market with its Pong clone Paddle Ball. In 1974, Williams Electronics, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware as a wholly owned subsidiary of Seeburg and replaced the previous entity. In 1987, Williams changed its parent name to WMS Industries, Inc. when it made its public offering. WMS is a shortening of Williams, which it also selected for its NYSE ticker symbol. In 1988, it acquired competitor Bally/Midway, which it spun off in 1998, together with its video game business. It closed its pinball division in 1999.WMS entered the reel-spinning slot machine market in 1994, and in 1996, it introduced its first hit casino slot machine, Reel ‘em In, a "multi-line, multi-coin secondary bonus" video slot machine. It followed this with a number of similar games like Jackpot Party, Boom and Filthy Rich. In 2001, a glitch was uncovered in the company's software that allowed players to earn credits on some machines without paying for them. The industry leader IGT also sued WMS for patent infringement related to its reel-spinning games, winning a judgment that required WMS to limit the flexibility of its line of reel-spinning games. By 2001, however, the company introduced its Monopoly-themed series of "participation" slots. Since then, WMS Gaming has continued to obtain licenses to sell gaming machines using several additional famous brands, including Top Gun, The Wizard of Oz, Star Trek and The Lord of the Rings. WMS Gaming introduced a new video operating platform, CPU-NXT, in 2003. It employed a faster, more open architecture that took advantage of the economies of scale enjoyed by Intel and other PC component vendors.The company continues to sell gaming machines and to market its participation games. In 2013 Scientific Games acquired WMS Industries and its subsidiaries.
