Digital einstants supplier Instant Win Gaming (IWG) has released a new feature for its games called InstantReplay, allowing for its einstants games to feature second-chance prizes.
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) in Canada will be the first IWG partner to go live with an InstantReplay-enabled game with the holiday game Winning Tree.
Winning Tree features a progressive jackpot prize that is awarded through a second chance drawing. A defined portion of game sales funds a progressive jackpot prize. The jackpot prize is awarded in a second chance draw format. Each purchase of the game earns players entries into the second chance drawing.
InstantReplay is included within IWG’s InstantRGS (remote game server) allowing lotteries to launch the capability with no development support necessary at the ilottery platform level.
Rhydian Fisher, CEO at IWG, commented: “We see InstantReplay as a fantastic addition to a lotteries toolkit. Second chance drawings are especially well suited for traditional lottery players purchasing einstants for the first time.
“InstantReplay builds upon our recently released InstantPulse which updates einstant visuals at pre-set moments, and InstantJackpot which adds progressive jackpot prizes to einstants. Credit to the great team at BCLC for being the first to offer an InstantReplay-enabled einstant.”
Last month, IWG signed an extension to its partnership with the Michigan Lottery, ensuring the firm continues to provide the lottery with einstant games until the summer of 2026.
