Instant Win Gaming (IWG) has gone live with OLG, completing the integration of its remote gaming server, InstantRGS, and delivering its suite of games to the state-owned corporation.
After securing a supply contract earlier this year, IWG began an integration process through the last few months, which has now been completed, meaning OLG players can now access the former’s suite of einstants via the InstantRGS.
Furthermore, IWG is intending to deploy its InstantJackpot and InstantLink technologies to bring progressive jackpot prizes across its in-house developed titles. Under the provisions of the deal, OLG would have access to games that incorporate InstantPulse, allowing it to update instant visuals.
Andrew Darley, OLG Senior Director, icasino & ilottery, said: “As the iGaming open market heats up in Ontario, offering our players IWG’s variety of einstants is an important strategic move for us which will help differentiate OLG.ca in the marketplace.
“We are excited to continue to grow our customer base with IWG’s products because 100% of OLG profits are reinvested back into the province. So, when you play OLG.ca, you play for Ontario.”
After securing AGCO licensing, IWG is now live in 28 lottery markets globally, and holds a strong position in the Canadian sector, active in eight provinces including with Atlantic Lottery Corporation, British Columbia Lottery Corporation and Loto-Quebec.
Rhydian Fisher, IWG CEO, said: “Following recent regulatory changes within Ontario, partnering with OLG is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us. Given IWG’s track-record for delivering top-selling einstants to lottery players across North America, we are confident that our games will resonate with lottery players in Ontario as well.
“We have exciting plans to help OLG truly differentiate itself as the single lottery operator in the province.”
