Evolution to Launch Mega Ball in North America

A First For The Canadian Market

On March 21st 2023, Evolution, the award-winning game creator and game changer announced that an agreement had been struck with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) to launch their exclusive Mega Ball live casino bingo game for players in Canada. 

The agreement sees the introduction of the renowned game to the North American market, marking another stage in Evolution and BCLC’s long-lasting partnership. As part of the agreement, BCLC will become the first Evolution client in North America to launch Mega Ball from a North American-based Studio. This presence of game-style online entertainment from Evolution’s studio in Vancouver will be a first for the Canadian market.

Mega Ball comes as an addition to BCLC’s vast online game portfolio available across Canada, which now includes multiple live table games and the Dream Wheeler by Evolution, both available to play via PlayNow.com, Canada’s largest regulated online gambling website operated by BCLC. 

What is Mega Ball?

Mega Ball is a merging of a live casino gameshow and online bingo, delivering a unique, super-fast and fun bouncing ball game with massive multipliers.

Unlike traditional bingo game, Mega Ball has the potential to create big winners over two rounds and thanks to the inclusion of the bonus round, players also have the chance to win even more cash prizes!

As ever, it’s all about those bingo lines; the more you get, the more you win! A lottery style terminal with suction tube will pull 20 random numbered balls (from 1 to 51) in an exciting live casino environment. Matching numbers will be marked of tickets automatically…

…and when the last ball is drawn, a Mega Ball multiplier between 5x and 100x is generated and the whole studio lighting is completely transformed to build a sense of excitement and anticipation. If said Mega Ball completes a line, the player’s winnings are multiplied accordingly. Where else would you find multipliers of up to 100,000x on a bingo game?

Jeff Millar, Chief Commercial Officer of North America at Evolution, said: “Our partnership with BCLC has continued to grow successfully, and the addition of Mega Ball to its vast portfolio is another milestone in our road of cooperation. Mega Ball is uniquely suited for North American lotteries, and we’re delighted to be providing it to BCLC and look forward to future developments.”

Dan Beebe, Chief Operating Officer at BCLC, said: “We believe the interactive features and exciting mechanics of Mega Ball will be an instant hit among PlayNow.com players. This is another layer of excitement we get to add to PlayNow.com’s portfolio, as we continue our strategic focus to provide players with a truly authentic and entertaining online gambling experiences.”
