IGT’s Powerbucks Made Two New Millionaires in Just Three Days
Posted on June 22, 2020 | 6:24 am
IGT, one of the global leaders in gaming that caters to all verticals, has confirmed that two jackpots had been won in May in just three days!
First, an Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) PlayOLG.ca player hit a staggering CA$2,256,578 jackpot on Powerbucks® Wheel of Fortune® Exotic Far East on May 26, 2020. Just three days later, on May 29, another lucky slots buff landed a CA$1,015,561 jackpot while spinning the reels of Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway.
Delivering On Millionaire-Making Promise
The world’s first omnichannel wide-area progressive to link the jackpot pool between land-based machines and online slots available on mobile devices and desktops, IGT’s Powerbucks has paid out 17 top prizes worth a million dollar or more since 2016 when it debuted in Canada. The CA$2,256,578 colossal amount is the largest jackpot ever won from IGT’s Powerbucks omnichannel progressive link for The Great White North.
David Flinn, IGT Regional Vice President, Canada said:
“Despite the temporary closure of casinos in Canada, IGT’s Powerbucks has continued to engage online players, build significant jackpot liquidity and deliver big wins such as the record-setting CA$2.2 million jackpot awarded on OLG’s online casino. IGT Powerbucks’ omnichannel availability has fueled its reputation as a growth-driving solution for Canada that delivers on its millionaire-making promise.”
Life-Changing Wins At Any Bet Level
Being the only gambling website regulated by the Province of Ontario, PlayOLG offers a wide range of interactive entertainment, including slots, video poker, and lottery ticket offerings. The site has significantly broadened its user base under the leadership of Stephen Rigby, who left the corporation in March, mainly thanks to its diverse offering.
PlayOLG can brag of a great choice of progressive games, with just recently launched Powerbucks being a true highlight. Even though the place also features a solid choice of table games, they’re RNG variants only, so Canadian punters looking for Live dealer blackjack, roulette, poker, or baccarat still have to check out other online casinos.
Commenting on the two latest wins, Kim Clark, OLG Vice President of Product Management said:
“OLG introduced IGT’s Powerbucks game several months ago and our players were drawn to its exciting opportunity to win life-changing jackpots at any bet level. It’s thrilling for us to be able to say OLG players have won some great prizes, including the highest-ever Powerbucks jackpot.”
