International Game Technology (IGT), with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), has extended its Powerbucks presence in Canada with the online launch of the millionaire-making, wide area progressive game. In featuring the game, Ontario joins the British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec and New Brunswick.
Ontario players can now win a life-changing jackpot at any bet point when playing Fortune Hawaiian Getaway Powerbucks Wheel and Fortune Exotic Far East games on PlayOLG.ca.
The games are connected to the Powerbucks jackpot draw, which integrates play across participating provinces from casino, desktop, tablet and mobile games.
“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-favourite 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 innovative omni-channel wide area game that connects the jackpot prize pool between casino gaming machines, with games available on mobile phones and tablets, as well as desktop computers.
The jackpot pool has been generating some of Canada’s biggest slot jackpots. The game has paid out 15 jackpots of more than a million dollars since making its Canadian debut in 2016.
