MGW learned today that International Game Technology and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation are touting the Canadian debut of IGT’s Powerbucks.
The offering, we’re told, is North America’s first omni-channel progressive prize pool jackpot.
Powerbucks links the jackpot pool from the land-based Powerhits slot games at BCLC’s 33 gaming facilities, with the mobile and desktop versions of the game found on Play Now in British Columbia and Manitoba.
IGT says it has worked closely with BCLC for 19 years to deliver innovative and dynamic casino-style games.
“Powerbucks delivers a whole new jackpot experience to Play Now players that is unique in North America,” said Monica Bohm, BCLC Vice President of eGaming. “Players can play Powerbucks for a chance to win jackpots of $1 million or more anytime from their mobile devices, home computers or local casinos.”
“The introduction of new, innovative products, such as Powerbucks, helps BCLC deliver the very best in gambling entertainment to British Columbians while benefiting communities across the province,” adds Brad Desmarais, BCLC Vice President of Casino and Community Gaming.
