Canada – BCLC goes live with IWG’s linked progressive jackpot e-Instants

By - 27 September 2021

Instant Win Gaming has delivered its linked progressive jackpots functionality to long-term customer, British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).

Sales from separate e-Instant games will contribute to a set of shared linked progressive jackpot prizes which are branded InstaJackpots BCLC. The integration strengthens the lottery’s PlayNow.com e-Instants offering.

Three in-game, instant-win jackpot prizes will be available for PlayNow players to win: a mini jackpot expected to be awarded multiple times each day, a mid-tier jackpot anticipated to be paid out twice per week, and a top-prize jackpot likely to be claimed twice per month. The actual frequency will depend on the volume of play.

The initial launch of InstaJackpots BCLC will see two e-Instant games from IWG’s content studio feature the linked progressive jackpots functionality, with more titles to follow over the coming months.

Recently, IWG were awarded a five-year contract extension by BCLC to continue providing its InstantGames to the lottery.

Rhydian Fisher, CEO at IWG, said: “Linked progressive jackpots bring another important dimension to the e-Instants gaming experience. By choosing to launch linked e-Instants under the InstaJackpots brand, BCLC and its PlayNow.com portal is establishing a strong brand connection across a variety of our games.

“We’re delighted to have extended our partnership with BCLC and provide the lottery with linked progressive jackpot e-Instant titles and look forward to developing even more content over the coming months.”
