Virginia Player Clinches U.S. iLottery Record Win in Multi-State eInstant
Instant Win Gaming (IWG), a reputable iGaming supplier specializing in eInstant games for NASPL/WLA-member lotteries, has announced a record-breaking $1.9 million prize win from its Mega Money Jackpots, a multi-state eInstant progressive jackpot.
The significant win, which took place in Virginia, now holds the distinction of being the largest eInstant prize in U.S. iLottery history.
Remarkably, within a span of under four months since its launch on July 11, the Mega Money Jackpots in both Pennsylvania and Virginia have produced four millionaires. Individual wins from this jackpot across the two states include prizes of $1.9 million, $1.8 million, $1.3 million, and $1 million. Collectively, over 85 players from these lotteries have clinched Mega and Minor jackpots, with the total winnings surpassing $7.6 million.
The success and allure of IWG’s Mega Money Jackpots are evidenced by the frequency and magnitude of these wins. To support the progressive prize, specific eInstant games from involved lotteries contribute a minor fraction of their sales, while IWG efficiently manages the distribution of the jackpot prize funds.
Powering the multi-state eInstant progressive jackpot is IWG’s InstantJackpots, functioning entirely within IWG’s InstantRGS (remote game server). This system necessitates no developmental support from the iLottery platform providers of the participating lotteries. Furthermore, the versatility of this setup allows any new lottery to integrate into the system, irrespective of their iLottery platform provider.
Jason Lisiecki, EVP Global at IWG, said: “Many congratulations to all the Mega Money Jackpots winners! It’s fantastic to see the positive impact that Mega Money Jackpots has already had since going live less than four months ago. Credit to both Pennsylvania and Virginia lotteries for pioneering the industry’s first multi-state eInstant progressive jackpot, which is regularly awarding life-changing moments to many of their lucky players. We look forward to expanding the Mega Money Jackpots program and creating many more millionaires.”
