Evolution and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) have joined forces again to launch Mega Ball in Canada, marking the first time the game has gone live in North America.
The live-streamed studio game combines ‘familiar bingo-style game mechanics with lottery bouncing balls’ and sees players try to get as many cards per line as possible.
The game has proved popular outside of North America and Evolution is hoping that success can be translated in a new market, with Mega Ball now appearing in Canada from a studio location in Vancouver.
Jeff Millar, COO of North America at Evolution, commented: “Our partnership with BCLC has continued to grow successfully, and the addition of Mega Ball to its vast portfolio is another milestone in our road of cooperation.
“Mega Ball is uniquely suited for North American lotteries, and we’re delighted to be providing it to BCLC and look forward to future developments.”
Under the terms of the deal, BCLC becomes the first Evolution client in North America to launch Mega Ball from a North America-based studio.
Mega Ball comes as an addition to BCLC’s extensive online game portfolio available across Canada, which includes multiple live table games and Evolution’s Dream Wheeler, available via PlayNow.com, Canada’s largest regulated online gambling website operated by BCLC.
Dan Beebe, COO at BCLC, added: “We believe the interactive features and exciting mechanics of Mega Ball will be an instant hit among PlayNow.com players.
“This is another layer of excitement we get to add to PlayNow.com’s portfolio, as we continue our strategic focus to provide players with truly authentic and entertaining online gambling experiences.”
