IWG launches industry first Rollover Jackpots
24 Jan 2018
The insured jackpot mechanic can be applied to any IWG game, and the first Rollover Jackpots game is set to be launched in Q1 by two European tier one operators.
The beauty of Rollover Jackpots is that it isn't reliant on liquidity from the partner operator in the form of either a lottery or commercial brand.
The insurance-based solution can create larger prize pools for individual operators than what the more common networked jackpots found in online slots can provide.
Rhydian Fisher, CEO at IWG, said, "This is a really important step in the lifecycle of IWG. The growth in instant win games over the past few years has been incredible, yet Rollover Jackpots is the first product to offer such massive prizes.
"Players demand huge jackpots these days as they dream about that life-changing win, so Rollover Jackpots really provides that mass market appeal. As a brand it has huge flexibility and enables us to compile a suite of fun, entertaining and popular games with the added carrot of these giant prize pots."
Over the past 12 months, IWG has signed deals with some of the biggest commercial operators in the sector, including Foxy Bingo, GVC, Mecca Bingo and William Hill Casino.
It has provided a full online instant win service to lotteries for over 15 years, producing more than 250 high quality instant win games. IWG was crowned online lottery supplier of the year at the 2017 EGR B2B Awards.
