EQL Games recently unveiled an unparalleled gaming experience with the debut of its omni-channel Team USA games, exclusively tailored for the Virginia Lottery. Whether purchasing a Team USA scratcher or playing the Team USA iLottery game online through the Virginia Lottery’s website or mobile app, players can get into the spirit of the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games leading up to opening ceremonies later this month in Paris.

“We are excited for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 in July and the launch of these two engaging lottery products. The Virginia Lottery is among the most innovative lotteries in the world, and it has been a pleasure collaborating to bring these two games to market.

“The opportunity to offer games that align with the start of the Olympics and Paralympics only happens every two years, and the Lottery saw this as a great chance to engage with fans. EQL and 916 Gaming have created fantastic games that our players can enjoy as they cheer on Team USA athletes,” said Virginia Lottery Director of Marketing Scott Kenyon.
