IGT has announced the expansion of its high-performing omnichannel Powerbucks games and MegaJackpots games in Canada via a deployment on the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) online gaming site PlayAlberta.ca. This launch marks the first time that IGT’s Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games are launched coast-to-coast across Canada.
The company describes Powerbucks 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. MegaJackpots is IGT PlayDigital’s exclusively digital wide area progressive jackpot network.
“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.”
Players in Alberta can now have the opportunity to win jackpots in player-favorite titles such as Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East and Wheel of Fortune Ruby Riches, and MegaJackpots Cleopatra and Wolf Run.
Earlier this month, IGT launched a new ten-game set for AGLC. The official rollout of the new game started in April this year. The company earlier said that over 2,600 of AGLC’s legacy Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) in the Canadian province would be replaced with IGT CrystalDual 27 VLTs featuring their new game content.
The company noted that this province-wide content deployment builds on IGT’s game performance success in Alberta. Its first CrystalDual game set for AGLC was deployed across more than 2,000 VLTs in the AGLC VLT network and is the lottery’s highest-performing HD content.
