Instant Win Gaming (IWG) will drive the next phase of online lottery growth in Belgium through an extension of its partnership with International Game Technology (IGT).
Loterie Nationale, the country’s National Lottery, has handed IWG a three-year contract to deliver its instant win content following a competitive procurement process.
The supplier will, therefore, be integrating its own Progressive Play Remote Game Server (RGS) – complete with a portfolio of over 100 titles – into the existing IGT platform in Belgium.
IWG has previously partnered with IGT to provide games to Norsk Tipping – the Norwegian state gaming operator which has selected Optima as its sportsbook platform provider – and Lotto New Zealand, with two further launches planned for the US before the end of 2019.
This latest deal demonstrates the global appeal of content from IWG, whose games are live with lotteries from British Columbia to Pennsylvania and the UK to New Zealand.
Rhydian Fisher, IWG CEO, said: “The opportunity to work with the team at Loterie Nationale, one of the world’s leading lotteries, is hugely pleasing and very exciting for us. The lottery’s plans to innovate, entertain and grow online are amongst the most inspiring we’ve seen, so we’re very much looking forward to the partnership.
“Winning an opportunity like this through an open and competitive RFP process is a source of great pride for the whole company. With our partners at IGT, we’ll work tirelessly to help Loterie Nationale attract new players, entertain existing players and ultimately generate funds for good causes in Belgium.”
Kevin Van Belle, Strategy and Change Management at Loterie Nationale, added: “Partnering with IWG is an important step for us as we ramp up our efforts to further evolve our games offering.
“The IWG portfolio is a proven success in other national and state lotteries. We’re confident in IWG’s expertise in delivering quality and reliable instant win games and excited about the prospect of innovating together in the coming years.”
