The launch marks NPi’s first draw games integration in North America
LANSING, Michigan, July 6, 2021 /CNW/ – NeoPollard Interactive LLC (“NeoPollard Interactive” or “NPi”), jointly owned by Pollard Banknote Limited (“Pollard Banknote”; TSX: PBL) and NeoGames S.A. (Nasdaq: NGMS), is pleased to announce that through its partnership with Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (“AGLC”), lottery players in Alberta now have the convenience of purchasing draw-based lottery games online.
Launched on May 20, 2021, AGLC’s new draw-based games expand on the existing portfolio of online games available on PlayAlberta.ca and includes popular Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) games such as Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, Daily Grand, Western Max, Western 6/49, and the Extra. With NPi’s intuitive user interface for draw-based games, players are offered two options to build and purchase their lottery tickets—selecting individual numbers or randomly picking numbers by choosing ‘Quick Pick’.
“We are excited to activate draw-based games in Alberta through an integration to WCLC’s draw-based games system. This expansion of AGLC’s selection of online games will give lottery players the ability to conveniently purchase and play their favourite games anytime, anywhere,” said Liz Siver, General Manager of NPi. “The addition of online draw-based games will provide AGLC with a robust, competitive gaming option while generating additional net income for the province’s General Revenue Fund, which supports programs and services relied upon by Albertans.”
In addition to an engaging array of top-selling eInstant games, AGLC’s draw-based games represent the third content integration powered by the company’s leading technology platform, NeoSphere. Previously, NPi worked with AGLC to introduce casino games and live dealer games on PlayAlberta.ca. Additional integrations, such as sports wagering, are expected to launch later in 2021.
