New York-listed Scientific Games has launched a new online subscription program for the Western Canadian Lottery Corporation (WCLC).

Subscription Spot is now available via the WCLC website and allows players in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, as well as the Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, to purchase lottery games online.

“This is a major milestone and big success story for WCLC as it is our first offering of an online purchase methodology for lottery products, supporting our plans for modernization through digital channels,” said WCLC vice president of marketing Brad Wiebe. “The subscription system provided by Scientific Games is strategic to our growth as we enter an entirely new digital era for WCLC and our players.”

WCLC’s new digital initiative is powered by Scientific Games’ player account management (PAM) platform, with lottery players able to purchase subscriptions for Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, Daily Grand, Western Max, Western 649 and Extra games for up to 104 drawings.

“Scientific Games is extremely pleased to evolve our lottery systems and services in a manner that supports WCLC's long-term strategic plan and facilitates continued, responsible growth across its business to generate maximum proceeds for the governments it serves,” said Scientific Games Canada account director Byron Bridger. “This is another great example of Scientific Games’ focus on omni-channel solutions that modernize the way lottery products are sold.”

In addition to central gaming systems technology, PAM platform and online subscription program, Scientific Games also provides WCLC with a sports betting solution and Scratch’n Win instant games.
