PA Lottery Teams Up with IWG, Adds EZ eInstants Category to Its Offering

The first three EZ eInstants include Prospector’s Gold Rush, Firework Fortune Frenzy and Treasure Tomb, three titles with different themes and atmospheres

The Pennsylvania Lottery has enhanced its offering with new digital instant win games. Thanks to its partnership with Instant Win Gaming (IWG), the Commonwealth’s lottery will now offer a brand new category of eInstant games called EZ eInstants.

As the title of this category suggests, it would include easy-to-play and understand games that players can quickly pick up and enjoy. Offering simplified experience and instant payouts, the new games are sure to engage fans in the state.

Another thing that makes the EZ eInstants so popular is IWG’s InstantJackpot tech which incorporates a linked jackpot across all games, allowing players to compete for huge prizes.

The first three EZ eInstants include Prospector’s Gold Rush, Firework Fortune Frenzy and Treasure Tomb, three titles with different themes and atmospheres. Fans, however, can expect more titles to hit the market. Under the deal with IWG, the PA Lottery will be adding more games through the supplier’s InstantRGS server.

The New Games Will Channel More Players Toward the Lottery

Pennsylvania Lottery’s executive director, Drew Svitko, expressed excitement about the launch of the new category. He said that the new games will be a great addition to the broader PA Lottery portfolio, providing players with new experiences.

We have several EZ eInstant games in our future release plans and we cannot wait to see how players respond to this new category.

PGCB Fined an Operator over an Unlicensed Category of Wagers

Speaking of new gaming categories, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) recently issued a fine against Stadium Casino over an unlicensed category of wagering. The company, which owns and operates the Live! Casino property in south Philadelphia, has, according to the regulator, accepted wagers over the phone.

As a result of this violation, the PGCB slammed Live! Casino’s parent company with a $100,000 fine. In addition to that, three employees were terminated and had their licenses revoked by the PGCB. One of the patrons was also placed on Pennsylvania’s involuntary exclusion list.

Another category, namely skill gaming, remains a somewhat controversial matter. Pace-O-Matic, the creator of Pennsylvania Skill games, recently discussed the relationship between gambling and skill games and the future coexistence of the two verticals.
