The online gaming division of Everi Holdings Inc., Everi Digital, has inked a content distribution deal with the Atlantic Lottery Corporation in Canada. Now, through the deal, the leading provider of iGaming casino titles will launch its world-class gaming products on the Crown agency’s regulated online platform for the Atlantic region.
Everi Digital is a renowned supplier of iCasino content and has established itself as one of the best in the business while touting a portfolio of more 50 exciting games. Besides the ALC, over the last three years, the company has also managed to strike deals for content distribution to even more Canadian jurisdictions such as British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec.
With the deal, Everi Digital’s two of the most recognized title within the gaming industry Atomic Meltdown™ and El Dorado the Lost City® are now live on ALC.ca for gamblers in the region to enjoy. Additionally, the company’s three-reel mechanical and video slot content has also been launched for the province of New Brunswick. All of the company’s iCasino content is delivered via its Spark Remote Game Server™.
David Lucchese, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Digital for the provider, stated that the collaboration with the ALC allows the company to expand the reach of its Spark RGS platform. He stated that the supplier’s influence continues to grow and secure even more players across the market it operates. He is also optimistic that the company will be able to further expand its presence in the Canadian markets.
The Crown corporation’s online platform is currently the only regulated online casino portal in the Atlantic region, which recorded some impressive performance for the 2020-21 fiscal year. The platform is experiencing rapid growth among gamblers, as it provides a safe and regulated environment for placing wagers, while simultaneously giving players access to responsible gaming programs and features.
Robert Lalonde ALC Manager, iGaming, commented that the Crown’s agreement with Everi Digital is another example of continued commitment to invest in its digital channels by bringing the provider’s premium portfolio of slot and video offerings. He says that the platform continues its growth and it is a part of the corporation’s modernization of player experience to stay competitive.
In order to provide even more variety for its many online patrons, the ALC signed a contract extension with International Game Technology’s subsidiary IGT Canada Solutions ULC. The agreement was sealed this September and through it, the provider IGT will continue to supply the Crown agency with casino products such as its state-of-the-art video lottery central system INTELLIGEN.
The two companies have been in a long-lasting partnership as their first one was inked back in 1982. The supplier has been providing the Atlantic region with VLTs since 1990, and in 2012, the companies agreed to a deal for the distribution of 1,612 VLTs to the Crown agency’s properties and for the replacement of the old and outdated ones.
