News on 12 Sep 2016

International Game Technology (IGT) and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) have partnered up to launch Northern America’s “first omni-channel jackpot” with a prize pool upwards of $1 million.

“Powerbucks” links the jackpot pool from the land-based “Powerhits™” slot games at BCLC’s 33 gaming facilities, the mobile and desktop versions of which are found on in British Columbia and Manitoba.

The deal expands IGT’s 19-year relationship with BCLC and marks a digital milestone for both entities.

“Powerbucks delivers a whole new jackpot experience to players that is unique in North America,” Monica Bohm, BCLC Vice President of eGaming, said. “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.”

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.
