The award-winning global games technology company, Inspired Entertainment Inc. has signed a three-year contract with Société des casinos du Québec Inc. commonly known as Loto-Québec. They will supply Virtual Sports, Interactive Casino Content and Server Based Gaming systems to Canada’s provincial lottery operator. The international producer and supplier of online software from the US, in an almost unprecedented decision, signed a deal that authorizes them to provide and operate gaming products in the Canadian territory of Quebec in the 3rd quarter of 2019.
Inspired’s full iGaming portfolio will be made available on LotoQuebec.com, their official website. It will include their online slots, table games and virtual sports on demand, which has been taking the world by storm. Some of the provider’s titles soon to be launched on the website are; 1st Down Slots, the first slot title to feature virtual football clips, Maximums Soldier of Rome, Book of the Irish and many others. The residents of Quebec will benefit from this substantial addition to their lottery operator’s game offering.
Plug N Play is the name of the virtual sports platform that is sure to be one of the biggest hits of all. It was launched at ICE in early 2019 and promises to widen Loto Quebec’s audience considerably. Due to the fact that Loto Quebec’s online gaming site is entertaining, high performing and has a user-friendly interface, they expect it to be a perfect fit with the Plug N Play product.
The General Manager for E-Commerce at Loto Quebec, Julie Benoit, commented that they were looking forward to a library of fresh on-demand and scheduled sports games in addition to the well-known casino games, which would further enhance the growth of the Canadian Loto company thanks to this lucrative collaboration.
Brooks Pierce, from Inspired Entertainment, said that they were delighted by the integration of their two companies and that it would further strengthen their position in Canada. He also mentioned that Loto Quebec were leaders in Canadian gaming and were key to their expansion into the North American market. He went on to add that they were eager to offer Canadian gamblers something new and different from what they had been used to.
At the time of writing this article, Inspired was worth a total of $US2.5 Billion, a growth of 3.9% on the previous year. Canada is a divided market similar to the US, which means that each state has to decide what form of gaming they will allow in its territory as there is no government centralization.
