New slot jackpot includes online and land-based players


27 Sep 2013

The online gaming industry is awash with news straight from the 13th Annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E) currently running in Las Vegas. However none of the news is quite as exciting as the launch of PowerBucks, the brand new game from IGT.

Details of the new game were saved for release at the annual industry gaming fest which began on 24th September and runs until 26th September 2013. The team behind the game call it ‘future-proof’, and in this instance it isn’t just glossy sales speak. PowerBucks will literally change the face of online and bricks & mortar gaming, as it will offer players the chance to play for the same progressive jackpot whether they are playing online or at a land-based casino. The beauty of having such a spread of players means that jackpots will grow beyond all boundaries and will be triggered more often.

The VP of Product Management at IGT, Joe Sigrist stated at the Expo says that “there will be no denying that IGT has taken the thrill of progressive play to the next level.”

PowerBucks will be an addition to the already successful MegaJackpots games, with titles that currently include Cleopatra, Monopoly and Cluedo.

Some of the biggest online casino industry names currently sport IGT games such as Bet365, Gala Coral and Sky Vegas to name but a few.
