Evolution is launching its Mega Ball offering for players in Canada after reaching an agreement with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation.

BCLC is the first Evolution client in North America to launch Mega Ball from a studio based on the continent, with the game-style online entertainment coming from the producer’s Vancouver studios, featuring a live game presenter.

Adding to BCLC’s online game portfolio on PlayNow.com, Mega Ball is described as a “one-of-a-kind, fast-paced game show, amalgamating a series of exciting features and mechanics” and has already provided a “thrilling entertainment experience” for players outside of North America. 

“We believe the interactive features and exciting mechanics of Mega Ball will be an instant hit among PlayNow.com players,” stated Dan Beebe, Chief Operating Officer at BCLC.

“This is another layer of excitement we get to add to PlayNow.com’s portfolio, as we continue our strategic focus to provide players with a truly authentic and entertaining online gambling experiences.”

The addition of Mega Ball builds upon an existing partnership between Evolution and BCLC, as the operator launched Canada’s first regulated live casino when the supplier’s studio began operations in 2018.

Jeff Millar, Chief Commercial Officer of North America at Evolution, added: “Our partnership with BCLC has continued to grow successfully, and the addition of Mega Ball to its vast portfolio is another milestone in our road of cooperation.

“Mega Ball is uniquely suited for North American lotteries, and we’re delighted to be providing it to BCLC and look forward to future developments.”

Last month, Evolution extended its partnership alongside Flutter Entertainment after agreeing to the provision of its entire live casino service with Sky Betting & Gaming.
