IWG and Atlantic Lottery swap subcontract with direct agreement

IWG has signed a five-year deal to supply its InstantRGS and InstantGames to the Atlantic Lottery

Instant Win Gaming (IWG) has replaced a subcontract to supply eInstants to the Atlantic Lottery with a direct supply agreement.

The company announced that it has signed a new, five-year contract to provide its InstantRGS (remote game server) and InstantGames to the Atlantic Lottery.

IWG has supplied its products to the Atlantic Lottery since 2017 via a subcontract with its iLottery platform provider. However, due to the growth of its eInstant category, the Atlantic Lottery has now elected to contract directly with IWG.

The Atlantic Lottery is publicly owned by four Atlantic provinces and is the region’s only regulated online gaming and sports betting provider.

“Atlantic Lottery has been a valued partner of IWG for many years, and this new agreement will streamline the way in which we deliver and support our eInstants,” commented IWG CEO Rhydian Fisher. “AL’s decision to move to a direct contract is consistent with how the vast majority of IWG’s lottery partners contract with their critical suppliers such as IWG.”

According to IWG, a direct contract will assure greater self-sufficiency for the Atlantic Lottery when collaborating with IWG on game development. It will also “streamline” roadmap planning and deliveries, including day-to-day game operations and support.

“It is imperative to our business planning at Atlantic Lottery that we establish direct contracts with our primary eInstant suppliers. IWG has been a trusted supplier to us since 2017, and we’re excited to be taking our partnership forward with this new agreement,” added Atlantic Lottery Director of iGaming Product Robert Lalonde.

IGT to launch cloud-based games for Atlantic Lottery

IWG is not the only developer that has extended its partnership with the Atlantic Lottery Corporation this week.

IGT Global Solutions also announced that it had signed a five-year contract to deploy its advanced cloud-based RGS and at least 16 digital instant games each year.

Through the IGT’s RGS, the Atlantic Lottery will gain access to its portfolio of digital instant games and content which includes omnichannel games, licensed content, and progressive jackpot games.

The platform also provides cross-channel branding across retail and digital, supports a range of jackpot and prize pool configurations, offers various bonusing tools to enhance player engagement, and is designed for optimum performance and scalability.

The deal is the latest step in the long-running partnership between IGT and the Atlantic Lottery. It currently operates more than 6,000 video lottery terminals across four Atlantic Canada provinces using its advanced lottery central system, INTELLIGEN.
