IGT and BCLC Debut Powerbucks Omni-Channel Jackpot in Canada with Powerhits Prize Pool Up to $1 Million
We just recently reported that IGT signed an extended contract with the Florida Lottery, and now the gaming provider announced the debut of their Powerbucks product with the British Columbia Lottery. Powerbucks is the first omni-channel progressive prize jackpot in North America. It is linked to the jackpot pool from Powerhits, land-based slot games at 33 different gaming establishments. Powerhits is also available via desktop and mobile on the British Columbia and Manitoba gaming site.
International Gaming Technology has worked close with the British Columbia Lottery for more than 15 years to deliver and offer innovative casino style games. IGT started offering their online games to the Canadian’s first online regulated site back in 2010. The launch of Powerbucks is a great milestone for IGT.
David Flinn, IGT Regional VP, Canada commented that,
“IGT is pleased to partner with BCLC for the Canada debut of Powerbucks. Powerbucks extends IGT’s legacy in developing omni-channel products that push the envelope of innovation and transform the way players enjoy gaming entertainment.”
Monica Bohm BCLC Vice President for the eGaming division added to Flinn’s comments saying,
“Powerbucks delivers a whole new jackpot experience to PlayNow.com players that is unique in North America. Players can play Powerbucks for a chance to win jackpots of $1m or more anytime from their mobile devices, home computers or local casinos.”
