Virginia Lottery debuts its second progressive jackpot-enabled e-Instant
Instant Win Gaming (IWG) and the Virginia lottery have released the Company’s second InstantJackpots-enabled e-Instant, Jackpot Payout. This launch of Jackpot Payout builds on the partnership between the Virginia Lottery and IWG. The Virginia Lottery and IWG made history last year by becoming the first in the U.S. to offer a jackpot enabled e-Instant.
Jackpot Payout features two instant-win progressive jackpot prizes – the Grand Jackpot and the Swift Jackpot. The game combines a traditional key number match mechanic with bonus rounds, offering the opportunity for players to win fixed prizes, as well as the chance to unlock the jackpot awards.
The buzz of a growing top prize, as is already well established with lottery draw games, is proving to be equally appealing to e-Instant players. Jackpot Payout follows IWG’s previously released Jungle Tumble Jackpots with both games incorporating rolling progressive jackpots. However, each is structured to target different player segments. Whereas Jungle Tumble Jackpots is designed to award its progressive top prize monthly, Jackpot Payout is optimized to award its rolling mid-tier prize multiple times each day.
All IWG jackpot-enabled games are completely contained within the supplier’s InstantRGS (remote game server). This ensures that lotteries can launch these e-Instants with no development support required at the iLottery platform level.
Rhydian Fisher, IWG CEO, said: “We’re very proud of our partnership with the Virginia Lottery. And, we’re thrilled that they have elected to launch Jackpot Payout, the latest game from IWG to feature our InstantJackpots technology. Jackpot Payout builds on the huge success of Jungle Tumble Jackpots and we cannot be more excited to see how players in the Commonwealth respond to our latest release.”
Rob Wesley, Director of Digital at Virginia Lottery, said: “We are expecting strong results with the launch of Jackpot Payout, our second e-Instant game featuring progressive jackpot prizing. This game will be a great addition to our growing e-Instant portfolio, providing additional variety and expanding on the progressive jackpot category.”
