IGT has partnered with the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission to expand the footprint of its Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games in Canada.

Through the deal, Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games will be made available on AGLC’s PlayAlberta.ca website, including titles such as Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East and Wheel of Fortune Ruby Riches, and MegaJackpots Cleopatra and Wolf Run.

Powerbucks is described as the world’s first omnichannel wide area progressive game that links the jackpot prize pool between land-based casino machines and digital games, while MegaJackpots is IGT PlayDigital’s exclusively digital wide area progressive jackpot network.

With the AGLC launch, IGT noted that Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games are now deployed coast-to-coast across Canada for the first time.

“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,” commented 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 in Canada, IGT recently agreed to supply the Western Canada Lottery Corporation with more video lottery terminals, the fourth such contract between the supplier and the lottery in the last seven years.
