Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games can now be played coast-to-coast across Canada for the first time, following their recent deployment by IGT on AGLC’s PlayAlberta.ca website.
The expansion of its network brings Powerbucks and MegaJackpot games to the province of Alberta for their debuts, adding to the likes of Ontario, where a player was the recipient of a $1.32m payout in February after striking gold on Powerbucks.
Self-styled as the ‘world’s first omnichannel WAP game’ that links the jackpot prize pool between gaming machines found in land-based casinos with digital-based games, Powerbucks features titles such as Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East and Wheel of Fortune Ruby Riches.
MegaJackpots, meanwhile, is IGT Play Digital’s exclusively digital wide area progressive jackpot network and includes titles such as Cleopatra and Wolf Run.
“IGT is thrilled to expand our wildly successful Powerbucks network to AGLC, now delivering the excitement of these omnichannel WAP jackpot games to players across all Canadian jurisdictions where online gaming is legal and regulated,” said David Flinn, IGT SVP, Canada, South and Central America.
“AGLC players will have even more opportunities to win big rewards with the launch of IGT PlayDigital’s MegaJackpots games featuring top-performing IGT themes. For AGLC, our wide area progressive games help differentiate its online casino, drive growth and provide the ultimate player experiences.”
Elsewhere, IGT recently struck an agreement with the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC) to supply more video lottery terminals (VLTs).
