Live5 grows presence in Canadian market with Loto-Québec deal

Slot developer Live5 has strengthened its presence in the Canadian market after securing a new deal with state lottery operator Loto-Québec.

As part of the agreement, which has been facilitated by SG Digital and its OpenGaming product, Live5’s Billy Gone Wild slot title will be made accessible to players in the region for the first time ever.

Lloyd Butler, CEO of Live5, said: “We have ambitious global expansion plans as we move into the second half of the year and are delighted to have entered the Canadian market with Loto-Québec.

“Canada is an exciting and thriving market and we look forward to seeing Loto-Québec customers play their first spins on Billy Gone Wild.

“This is just the start of our plans for Canada and we look forward to launching with more operators over the coming months. We will also deliver more titles to Loto-Québec.”

Billy Gone Wild is the developer’s adventurous farm themed slot where players are met by a ‘whacky’ goat before playing various features, including wilds, free spins and re-spins.

Live5, which initially focused on the UK market, has its eyes set on expanding into new markets around the world.

Dylan Slaney, SVP Casino at SG Digital, added: “It’s fantastic to see OpenGaming play such an important role in enhancing Loto-Quebec’s online casino offering with the launch of Live5’s content.

“Our Open Gaming System  continues to provide lotteries such as Loto-Québec with access to a platform rich in quality games, including Billy Gone Wild. We’re delighted to have facilitated Live5’s entry into Canada and look forward to expanding its reach further through OpenGaming.”
