Instant Win Gaming (IWG) will launch its first linked progressive jackpot e-instant game in the US, with Virginia Lottery becoming the first state to take part in the rollout.
Virginia Lottery will offer separate e-instant games that share the same progressive jackpot prize, branded “Big Money Jackpots”.
Jackpot prizes will be linked and accumulate from sales across various e-instant games. Three Big Money Jackpots are on offer and will be won based on their size: the mini jackpot around twice per day; the medium-sized jackpot won around twice per week, and a larger jackpot won twice per month.
Two games titled “Cash Buster Multiplier” and “Prospector’s Gold” are on offer to Virginia Lottery customers, giving them the opportunity to win the progressive jackpots. There are plans to add further titles from IWG’s portfolio over the next few months, with the company’s InstantJackpot module compatible with any of its games.
Rob Wesley, Director of Digital at Virginia Lottery, commented: “We are excited to unveil our new linked progressive jackpot e-instants offering, which adds to our growing progressive jackpot e-instant portfolio. Our first two stand-alone progressive jackpot e-instant games have consistently been in our top-performing games ranking.
“We have high hopes for this launch, and as always, we look forward to partnering with IWG on all of its upcoming innovations.”
Virginia Lottery holds the reputation for being the first US state to introduce igaming products, having launched IWG’s InstantJackpots module at the beginning of the calendar year.
Rhydian Fisher, CEO of IWG, added: “Big credit to the fantastic team at the Virginia Lottery, who have become history makers once again, this time by being the first to offer linked progressive e-instants.
“We are so proud of our partnership with the Virginia Lottery and look forward to helping them grow their ilottery portfolio for years to come with innovative and exciting products.”
