EquiLottery Games, the North American live sports lottery game developer, has announced an agreement with Major League Baseball that will see it launch a new officially-licensed lottery draw game, Baseball Bucks.
Under this multi-year agreement, Baseball Bucks will feature the official brand marks of MLB and the 30 MLB Clubs. Financial terms have not been disclosed.
EquiLottery Games CEO Brad Cummings said: “We are pleased to be working with one of the most iconic leagues in professional sports worldwide.
“We have already hit the ground running and the early response from lotteries to Baseball Bucks has been exceedingly positive. I want to thank MLB for being exceptional to work with through this process as we develop a game that will increase the engagement with baseball across the US while also returning more money to the good causes lotteries support. As with all of our games, Baseball Bucks is designed to be a win for all parties involved.”
Kenny Gersh, MLB executive vice president, gaming and new business ventures, said: “We are always aiming to work with partners who share our goal of providing innovative ways for fans to engage with live games.
“Baseball Bucks is a completely new gaming opportunity for lottery players and baseball fans. We’re looking forward to working with Brad and EquiLottery Games to bring Baseball Bucks to as many jurisdictions as we can.”
