IWG To Push Development In Belgium Through IGT Relationship

Through extending its relationship with International Game Technology (IGT), Instant Win Gaming (IWG) will push the next stage of digital lottery development in Belgium.

The National Lottery of the nation, Loterie Nationale, has awarded a three-year contract to IWG to produce its instant win material after a competitive procurement process.

Therefore, the manufacturer must incorporate its own Progressive Play Remote Game Server (RGS)–complete with a portfolio of more than 100 games–into Belgium’s current IGT network.

IWG previously collaborated with IGT to offer games to Norsk Tipping–the Norwegian state gaming operator that picked Optima as their sportsbook service provider–and Lotto New Zealand, with two more releases planned for the US before the end of 2019.

This latest deal shows the global content appeal from IWG, whose games are live with lotteries from British Columbia to Pennsylvania and from 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.”
