BCLC inks tri-party deal to launch new slot via Light & Wonder

ReelPlay's 'global smash' game the first of several to go live

ReelPlay has made its first play on the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) platform after launching ‘Hypernova Megaways’ via Light & Wonder.

The online slot was first released in 2018 and has since become a ‘global smash’ according to Light & Wonder, which is delivering ReelPlay games to BCLC for the first time after forging a new agreement with its long-time partner.

Hypernova Megaways is the first of a number of scheduled ReelPlay deployments to BCLC’s content portfolio.

Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder, commented: “Having worked closely with ReelPlay for many years, we fully expect their extended distribution into BCLC to be a success for all parties and look forward to future ReelPlay releases across our network.”

Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming ecosystem – which also powered Fantasma Games’ entry into the Canadian gaming market last year – delivers more than 3,500 games from a global network of in-house and third-party game studios, all supported with a ‘comprehensive’ range of responsible gambling tools to help deliver a ‘safe and enjoyable gaming experience’ for players.

“Hypernova Megaways is one of the top performing slot games across the regulated North American markets,” explained David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay.

“Proudly first to market with innovative and inspirational concepts, ReelPlay is very excited to see the game arrive in another regulated market via our partners at Light & Wonder and expect the tri-party relationship to really flourish after this debut release.”

Meanwhile, BCLC was recently named as the newest member of United Lotteries for Integrity in Sports (ULIS), the organization formerly known as the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS).
