International Game Technology (IGT) has expanded its Powerbucks footprint in Canada with the online launch of the millionaire-making, wide area progressive game with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). Ontario joins British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec, and New Brunswick in featuring the game.
Players in Ontario can now win a life-changing jackpot at any bet level while playing the Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway and Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East games on PlayOLG.ca.
The games are linked to the Powerbucks jackpot pool, which combines play from casino, desktop, tablet, and mobile games across participating provinces.
“IGT is excited to bring the success of the Powerbucks network to OLG, our long-term Canadian partner and an important PlayRGS customer,” said David Flinn, IGT Regional Vice President, Canada. “Powerbucks is a player-favorite brand among those who play online or in brick-and-mortar casinos across Canada, and its growing omni-channel jackpot pool will provide OLG’s players a unique slot experience unlike any other in the province.”
Powerbucks is the world’s first omni-channel wide area progressive game that links the jackpot prize pool between gaming machines found in casinos, with games available on mobile phones and tablets, as well as desktop computers.
The jackpot pool has delivered some of the largest slot jackpots in Canada. Since making its Canadian debut in 2016, the game has paid 15 jackpots of more than a million dollars.
