The British Columbia Lottery Corporation will launch ReelPlay's Hypernova Megaways and more online slots.

Light & Wonder has made a new deal with ReelPlay to deliver its games to British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC). Hypernova Megaways, debuted in Europe in 2018, will be the first ReelPlay game to launch, with more games planned to follow as the agreement expands into other regulated markets.

The Hypernova Megaways franchise also includes follow-up online slots Atlantis Megaways and Big Bucks Bandit Megaways. ReelPlay has also launched an Infinity Reels series of games, as well as its 10k Ways series that includes 10,000 Wonders.

David Johnson, CEO of ReelPlay, said, “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.”

Light & Wonder continues to support independent studios, such as ReelPlay, by delivering to BCLC. Other recent Light & Wonder partnerships have included Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians’ casinos in California, Gift & Go technology platform and Blueprint Gaming.

Light & Wonder’s OpenGaming ecosystem delivers more than 3,500 games from a global network of both in-house and third-party game studios. All games available through OpenGaming have an integrated range of responsible gambling tools.

Steve Mayes, Digital Partnerships Director at Light & Wonder, said, “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.”
