IGT has revealed a player in Ontario was the recipient of a $1.32m payout in February after striking gold on its Powerbucks game.
The online Powerbucks player was awarded the jackpot on Feb. 28 after playing Gong Xi Fa Cai, a 5 reel, 50 payline jackpot slot.
IGT Powerbucks slots have now paid 47 jackpots of $1m or more since their Canadian debut in 2016 while its Wheel of Fortune slots have produced over 1,100 millionaires and awarded over $3.4bn in jackpots since their launch in 1996.
The latest two came last month when, on Feb. 4, a player won $3.25m playing Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Triple Gold at Bellagio in Las Vegas, before another player, on Feb. 18, won $3.27m playing Wheel of Fortune High Roller at Carson Valley Inn in Minden, Nevada.
Meanwhile, toward the end of last year, IGT Canada Solutions – an IGT subsidiary – agreed a new, five-year deal with Loto-Quebec to deliver an upgraded version of its Intelligen video lottery central system.
Other IGT developments in Canada over the past year include the debut of 960 Cobalt 27 video lottery terminals (VLTs) via Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation (MBLL).
