BCLC and IWG Introduce Set for Life on PlayNow.com, Bridging Retail and Online Play
British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) in collaboration with Instant Win Gaming (IWG) has launched Set for Life on PlayNow.com. This addition enhances the igaming arena by integrating a renowned retail brand into the online space, catering to both in-store and online players in British Columbia.
Set for Life holds the distinction of being the inaugural B.C.-exclusive instant brand to feature an annuity prize. Both online and retail versions present players with the enticing Set for Life grand prize of $1,000 weekly for a duration of 25 years. On the PlayNow.com platform, players are afforded the flexibility to select their preferred game skin, each echoing the imagery seen in its retail counterpart.
Currently, Set for Life can be accessed on PlayNow.com not just in B.C., but also in Manitoba, showcasing BCLC’s advanced igaming platform’s reach.
Understanding the importance of omni-channel eInstants in the igaming landscape, IWG emphasizes their capability to replicate the thrill of in-store games in a digital setting. By integrating Set for Life online, both BCLC and IWG take pride in transitioning a widely recognized retail brand to the digital realm, enabling players to potentially achieve their long-sought dreams. Since their collaboration commenced in 2018, over 70 titles have been rolled out by IWG in partnership with BCLC.
