IGT, BCLC introduce North America's first omni-channel jackpot

4 Oct 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- International Game Technology and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation announce the Canadian debut of IGT's Powerbucks, 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 has worked closely with BCLC for 19 years to deliver innovative and dynamic casino-style games. In 2010, IGT began offering games online through Play Now, Canada's first regulated online gambling site. The launch of the converged Powerbucks jackpot marks a new milestone for IGT and BCLC as they continue to develop new and exciting experiences for players living in an increasingly digital world.

"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," said Brad Desmarais, BCLC Vice President of Casino and Community Gaming.

"IGT is pleased to partner with BCLC for the Canada debut of Powerbucks," said David Flinn, IGT Regional Vice President, Canada. "Powerbucks extends IGT's legacy in developing omni-channel products that push the envelope of innovation and transform the way players enjoy gaming entertainment."

Powerbucks players betting $0.50 to $2.99 are eligible for the game's static $1 million jackpot and players wagering a minimum $3 bet are eligible for the game's progressive jackpot that starts at $1 million.
