Scientific Games Corporation has announced that its SG Digital division has signed a fresh agreement with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC), with the operators seeking provisions of an expanded sportsbook solution over a multi-year period.

The BCLC, who has utilised the OpenBet sportsbook for multiple years, is to receive a full upgrade of its digital sports betting solutions courtesy of the refreshment of its long-standing Scientific Games relationship.

Amongst the upgrades are, improvements to live betting, a streamlined cashout experience, and additional promotional capabilities, which are pencilled in for launch by the end of 2018.

Keith O’Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook and Platforms at SG Digital, said, “Together, SG Digital and BCLC will drive the Canadian market to a new sports betting era. We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with a longstanding and respected operator in the online space. Our OpenBet products are a perfect fit for BCLC, and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

This latest agreement follows a recent link-up with the Pennsylvania Lottery, which allows consumers within the state to access iLottery and mobile games for the first time via the new PA iLottery solution.
