Light & Wonder Signs Canadian Distribution Agreement

Gaming supplier Light & Wonder, Inc. has agreed to a new deal with ReelPlay to deliver its games to the 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’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,” said Steve Mayes, digital partnerships director at Light & Wonder.

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