Hypernova Megaways the first of a number of scheduled ReelPlay deployments to BCLC

Light & Wonder Incorporated (NASDAQ: LNW) has agreed to a new deal with ReelPlay to deliver its games to British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) for the first time.

ReelPlay’s global smash Hypernova Megaways is the first game launched and will be followed by more content as the agreement expands into new regulated markets.

ReelPlay debuted Hypernova Megaways in Europe in 2018 and added to the franchise with successful follow-ups Atlantis Megaways and Big Bucks Bandit Megaways. With slot games widely licensed across regulated operators globally, ReelPlay has since launched its Infinity Reels series of games and, most recently, 10K Ways, which debuted with the hit 10,000 Wonders 10K Ways.

The deployment extension into BCLC demonstrates Light & Wonder Incorporated’s support of independent studios such as ReelPlay.

“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,” Digital Partnerships Director for Light & Wonder Incorporated, Steve Mayes, said.

“Hypernova Megaways is one of the top-performing slot games across the regulated North American markets,” Chief Executive Officer for ReelPlay, David Johnson, said. “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 Incorporated and expect the tri-party relationship to really flourish after this debut release.”

The OpenGaming ecosystem delivers more than 3,500 games from a global network of in-house and third-party game studios with unrivalled ease of integration that is robust and secure. All games available through OpenGaming are supported with a comprehensive range of responsible gambling tools, helping to deliver a safe and enjoyable gaming experience for players.

Scientific Games Off to Epic Start With Launch of First GAME OF THRONES Lottery Scratch-off Game in the U.S.

Published

Colorado Lottery Winners Will Be Lucky Participants in THE SEVEN KINGDOMS EXPERIENCE Set to Take Place in Napa.

Scientific Games’ newest multi-state branded GAME OF THRONES Linked Games, developed in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment, has kicked off successfully with GAME OF THRONES branded instant scratch, Fast Play and iLottery games offering players the chance to win prizes instantly, plus an opportunity to win an experiential prize package, THE SEVEN KINGDOMS EXPERIENCE.

Inspired by one of the most-watched HBO television series of all time and set to captivate the GAME OF THRONES fandom, THE SEVEN KINGDOMS EXPERIENCE event will take place in a medieval-style castle winery in Napa Valley, California in 2025. Trip winners will be divided into seven “Houses”, such as House Targaryen, House Stark and House Lannister.

The event will include multiple rounds of brand-immersive games, giving trip winners a second chance to win their share of up to $7 million. The trip winners will get to cheer on their own “Champion” in a live jousting tournament, and one “Ruler” will be chosen from each house to play for prize money split amongst every member of the house.

The Colorado Lottery is the first U.S. lottery to launch a GAME OF THRONES-themed lottery Linked Game to give players in the state an opportunity to win the once-in-a-lifetime experience. The game achieved the highest first-week index of any of the Lottery’s $10 games launched in fiscal year 2024. It continues to lead, with four-week sales surpassing all other Colorado Lottery $10 games in fiscal year 2024 and most games in other price points, placing third behind a $20 and $50 game. THE SEVEN KINGDOMS EXPERIENCE has limited availability remaining for North American lottery participation, with most of the current trip winner spots filled.

Tom Seaver, Director of the Colorado Lottery, said, “Our players are very excited to play the GAME OF THRONES scratch game. It’s been a great addition to our game lineup, and as the sales numbers show, it is performing really well for us.”

According to Scientific Games research, the GAME OF THRONES brand resonates especially well with younger adult players.

Tina Hoover, V.P. of Licensing for Scientific Games, said, “Our teams are continually innovating to make every lottery winners’ event unique and exciting. We worked with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment to create an immersive GAME OF THRONES-themed winners experience and to deliver a top-notch winners’ event that we’ve refined over the past 17 years doing prize trips for more than 5,000 lottery players. Based on the response we have received and participation so far for THE SEVEN KINGDOMS EXPERIENCE, we are looking into a potential second trip opportunity.”

Scientific Games pioneered the lottery Linked Games concept in 2007 and games produced by the company offering the opportunity to win experiential prizes themed to brands like DEAL OR NO DEAL, MONOPOLY, THE PRICE IS RIGHT and WILLY WONKA represent more than USD$4.6 billion in retail sales to date.

With a portfolio representing more than 100 licensed brands, Scientific Games provides retail and digital games, technology, analytics and services to 150 lotteries in 50 countries worldwide.
