EQL Games is bringing its online lottery offerings to Virginia.

The iLottery provider has partnered with NeoGames subsidiary Pariplay to provide the Virginia Lottery with a catalog of instant games. As part of the pact, EQL Games will leverage Pariplay’s Fusion aggregation platform to deliver games to Virginia players.

“As the Virginia Lottery’s newest online content provider, EQL is contributing to the expansion of our iLottery games portfolio,” said Virginia Lottery Marketing Director Scott Kenyon. “EQL Games’ platform allows us to access games from studios across the world, featuring game mechanics that support our ongoing strategy of acquiring new players and those looking for fresh, new gameplay experiences.”

EQL Games and Pariplay have kicked off their partnership by delivering Drop It!. The iLottery game, developed by Greentube, launched on March 21 in the Old Dominion.

Pariplay and EQL Games have been working together since 2023 to expand the reach of the Fusion platform. Last July, the two companies agreed to a deal to provide EQL Games’ iLottery titles to regulated states across America by integrating the content into Fusion.

“Our goal is to deliver lottery content that is novel, engaging, and profitable for lottery operators while making it available to as wide an audience as possible,” said EQL Games CEO Brad Cummings last year.
