Pilot Games, a producer and operator of electronic pull tab games within regulated US states, has announced a multi-year partnership with the Minnesota Wild to support local youth hockey organizations and Minnesota charities with its latest pull tab game, Let’s Go Wild.

Co-Founder and CEO Jon Weaver said on the latest deal: “As we learned with our partnership with the Minnesota Vikings, there is a tremendous relationship between professional sports teams, their players, fans and charitable activities. By offering team-related electronic pull tab games to our library of over 70 titles we have created a new way to offer exciting and fun team-content to fans while raising awareness and money for local charities.”

Youth Hockey is an important part of Minnesota culture, with 260 sites in the Pilot network of over 1,400 bars using funds derived from e-gambling to support the sport.  

Weaver added: “The impact of COVID has been profound on community charities and Youth Hockey. The Pilot and Wild team is dedicated to supporting Minnesota Charities and Minnesota Youth Hockey.”

Bryan Bellows, Director of Corporate Partnerships for the Minnesota Wild, commented: “In working with Pilot, we have found an innovative way to both reach our fans and raise dollars for local charities. The Wild has been a proud supporter and partner of Minnesota Youth Hockey for the past 20 years and we encourage all of our fans to check out Let’s Go Wild.

The new game will go live effective from this month.
