The Washington DC Lottery has moved to strengthen its online gaming offering, signing a content partnership with Greentube.

Terms of the partnership will see the DC Lottery roll out the supplier’s Drop The Balls title, becoming the first lottery operator to do so before the game is distributed to more US and Latin American firms.

A European firm and part of the Novomatic Interactive group of companies, Greentube developed Drop The Balls in response to ‘growing demand for innovative games’.

The supplier stated: “The launch of Drop The Balls marks another exciting milestone for Greentube USA, and the company is confident that the game will be a huge success with lotteries and players alike.”

Drop the Balls is a combination of pinball, pachink and bagatelle which Greentube expects to find popularity with DC Lottery players, particularly due to the physics simulation and graphics of the game.

In the game, players drop balls onto a playfield filled with obstacles and multiplier catchers, adding value to the balls as they drop. It is delivered to partners via the EQL RGS aggregation platform, which will continue to work with Greentube for further launches.

“The magic at the heart of this game is a physics simulation that makes all the action in the game look and feel realistic”, said Ben Sutherland, CEO of Greentube USA. “Drop The Balls is a game that lottery players of all ages will enjoy, and we are excited to be launching it with the Washington DC Lottery.”
