Nuworks Gaming

Published: 07/01/2013

Up until a few years ago, if one had to name a “bad boy” among gaming software developers, Real Time Gaming (RTG) was always first on the list. Since 1999, they went against the grain, giving casino operators the ability to adjust game parameters, including payout rates. When the U.S. government introduced a ban on Internet gambling in 2006, RTG was the first company to thumb their nose at the regulations and welcome displaced American players.

But when Real Time Gaming was sold in 2007 to Hastings International B.V.—a Curaçao-based licensee in the Netherlands Antilles—times began to change. The company appeared to be going straight, improving its reputation by hiring Central Disputes System (CDS) Corporation to act as the exclusive mediator between players and licensees of the RTG gaming platform, and getting its software certified as fair and random by Technical Systems Testing (TST). What happened to RTG’s renegade spirit?

Never fear—it is alive and well and living in RTG’s new sister company, Nuworks Gaming. Established in 2011, Nuworks has picked up where RTG left off, welcoming U.S. players and cleverly concealing its home page from the view of American authorities who might otherwise want to put a halt to its online operations.

In fact, if one did not know better, it might be tempting to say that Nuworks is really just the wily wolf RTG in sheep’s clothing. The software downloads come from Hastings International. The RTG copyright notices have been seen on several Nuworks related web pages. And the lobby configuration used for at least two Nuworks casinos is virtually identical to an RTG lobby, including the cashier facility.

However, there a differences, too—enough to validate the claim that Nuworks is, indeed, its own company and the new “bad girl” on the block. Her first two casino clients were BuzzLuck Casino licensed in the Netherlands Antilles and Lucky Club Casino, apparently operating out of Vanuatu in the Caribbean. Both sites have been accredited by CasinoMeister as legitimate gaming sites.

Since then, two more gaming venues have been added to the Nuworks portfolio—Slot Madness Casino out of Puerto Rico and Belgado Casino, based in the Netherlands Antilles. Can the proximity of all these clients to the home of Hastings and RTG be a mere coincidence?

Clearly, however, there are some very pronounced difference between the new software being rolled out through Nuworks and the offerings found on traditional RTG sites. Video slots, in particular, show a departure, with fresh themes and new progressives like African Skies and Monster Millions leading the way. There are plenty of table games, including Blackjack, Baccarat, Let ‘em Ride (Progressive) and Tri Card Poker. Crisp, clean graphics and fast play add to the attraction.

According to sources, Nuworks has already become a member of the Interactive Gaming, Gambling and Betting Association (iGGBA) and the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC). Customer service for the sites is being provided by the Jackpot Capital Group, along with marketing support. And TST is certifying the fairness of the software.

If nothing else, the Nuworks client sites are very international. Toll-free numbers with US-style 800 prefixes are available for customers who require assistance by phone. BuzzLuck Casino has a U.K. mailing address, while Lucky Club Casino has a dot-eu suffix for its email contact address.

Despite a relatively small number of games (just 60 in total at BuzzLuck), there is a touch of innovation present that will be of interest to many players. On a high-speed connection, individual game downloads take only about a minute. Once downloads are completed, instant play is possible thereafter.
