Scientific Games and Loto-Québec have extended their partnership by launching prominent gambling brand AGS’s Canadian debut via SciGames’ OpenGaming platform.
AGS is a Las Vegas-headquartered gaming equipment supplier that provides cabinets, games, proprietary table games, and other equipment.
It is now bringing its interactive department’s online social and iGaming offerings to Canadian consumers.
Scientific Games’ OpenGaming System will have access to 3,000 gaming titles from the industry’s leading third-party providers as well as Scientific Games’ in-house games.
The first AGS title available via Loto-Québec will be Rakin’ Bacon!, a fantasy pig-themed game which features the golden pig in a coin-filled room and offers cartoon-like animations for players, with the inclusion of responsible gaming tools that ensures player safety.
Executive Vice President of Operation at AGS, Matt Reback, said: “Launching in Canada is the next step for AGS and our aim to bring our content to the widest audience and we are thrilled to have Rakin’ Bacon as the first title to go live with Loto-Québec and we are looking forward to seeing our games resonate with Canadian players.”
Stéphane Martel, Acting Senior Director, Products and Innovation at Loto-Québec, described the agreement as another great example of the crown corporation’s successful relationship with Scientific Games.
Commercial Director for Canada and Latin America Digital at Scientific Games, Marc Crean, welcomed its newest partner in the face of AGS to the company’s Open Gaming system and in the country. He predicted the supplier’s content will be a “massive success” among Loto-Québec’s users.
This is the latest expansion move from Scientific Games. In recent weeks, the company has also acquired sports betting player engagement specialist SportCast, agreed a multi-year deal to exclusively distribute titles from developer Pixiu Gaming in North America, and launched Novomatic Interactive division Greentube in Canada via a partnership with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).
