“IGT is excited to bring the success of the Powerbucks network to OLG, our long-term Canadian partner and an important PlayRGS customer,” said IGT regional vice president Canada David Flinn.
“Powerbucks is a player-favorite brand among those who play online or in brick-and-mortar casinos across Canada, and its growing omni-channel jackpot pool will provide OLG’s players a unique slot experience unlike any other in the province.”
Since making its Canadian debut in 2016, Powerbucks has paid 15 jackpots of more than CAD$1m to Canadian players.
