Digital e-instants supplier Instant Win Gaming (IWG) has launched its linked progressive jackpots functionality with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).
Sales from separate e-instant games will now contribute to a set of shared linked progressive jackpot prizes which are branded InstaJackpots BCLC, boosting the lottery’s PlayNow.com e-instants offering, reports SBC’s Lottery Daily.
Three in-game, instant-win jackpot prizes will be available for PlayNow players to win: a mini jackpot expected to be awarded multiple times each day, a mid-tier jackpot anticipated to be paid out twice per week, and a top-prize jackpot likely to be claimed twice per month. The actual frequency will depend on the volume of play.
InstaJackpots BCLC’s initial launch will see two e-instant games from IWG’s content studio feature the linked progressive jackpots functionality, with more titles to follow.
Rhydian Fisher, CEO at IWG, commented: “Linked progressive jackpots bring another important dimension to the e-instants gaming experience. By choosing to launch linked e-instants under the InstaJackpots brand, BCLC and its PlayNow.com portal is establishing a strong brand connection across a variety of our games. We’re delighted to have extended our partnership with BCLC and provide the lottery with linked progressive jackpot e-instant titles and look forward to developing even more content over the coming months.”
IWG’s linked progressive technology is contained within its InstantRGS (remote game server), providing a seamless launch process with no additional development support required at the iLottery platform level.
IWG is a leading supplier of e-instant and instant games to numerous lottery corporations and earlier this year was awarded a five-year contract extension by BCLC to continue providing its instant games to the lottery.
