Australian and New Zealand pastime for more than
50 years. Poker machines positively contribute
to these economies; they provide revenue which
is poured back into local communities, provide
tens of thousands of jobs locally and are responsibly
enjoyed by many people. In this heavily regulated
industry, IGT ensures strict cooperation and compliance

Industries Inc: A Snapshot (Of The Company Currently
Going Legal On PartyGaming)...
Industries Inc. was formed in 1974 and achieved
great success in the pinball, video arcade and
home video game markets. With a demonstrated track
record as a company that could "make great
games", video and software technology, and
manufacturing facilities all in place, WMS' foray
into gaming was a natural progression for the
corporation. WMS Gaming Inc. started out in the
video lottery terminal (VLT) business in 1991.
The company created, manufactured and placed VLTs
in jurisdictions throughout North America. Once
successfully established in the video lottery
market, WMS Gaming moved into the casino gaming
business with the introduction of a video poker
game. A year later, the Company unveiled a complete
line of technically advanced upright slot machines.
In 1997, the company premiered what would be,
and still is, its most successful video slot machine
to date, Reel 'em In®. This multi-coin, multi-line
game offered tons of bells and whistles for the
slot player. In an effort to produce an enhanced
playing experience, WMS Gaming installed full
color high-resolution screens in its games, created
full color, detailed graphics, provided an entertaining
game theme with many betting options, and increased
the hit frequency. These features translated to
tremendous player acceptance, increased play and
therefore, increased earnings. Since 1998, WMS
Industries has been engaged entirely in the manufacture,
sale, leasing and licensing of gaming machines.
WMS Industries Inc. is traded on the New York
Stock Exchange (symbol: WMS). The Company's subsidiary
