Tuesday September 24 ,2013 : IGT LINKS LAND AND ONLINE WITH POWERBUCKS
Integrated pool from online and land play applied to MegaJackpots titles
International Game Technology is making a noise at the Global Gaming Expo with a range of new releases, a brand revamp and the introduction of PowerBucks.
PowerBucks is a Wide Area Progressive combined jackpot pool that integrates online slots and land-based play where permitted. It allows players to win jackpots with a variety of bet levels, not just max bet wager. The product includes jackpot meters and a real-time winners feed with potentially higher frequency hits from a jackpot pool fed from multiple play points.
"IGT is ecstatic to shake up the gaming landscape with PowerBucks. We're rolling out a future-proofed gaming experience that is ready to grow with the continuing evolution of Wide Area Progressives," said Joe Sigrist IGT VP of Product Management.
"From coast-to-coast, to cyberspace and beyond borders, Powerbucks establishes the cross-platform infrastructure to create jackpots like never before. Watch – as players take note of the thrilling gaming experience that PowerBucks™ has to offer, there will be no denying that IGT has taken the thrill of progressive play to the next level."
The PowerBucks™ WAP system will be available on a variety of IGT's MegaJackpots® titles.
