IGT and BCLC partner up

International Game Technology (IGT) and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) have partnered up to launch Northern America's "first omni-channel jackpot" with a prize pool upwards of $1 million.
"Powerbucks" links the jackpot pool from the land-based "Powerhits™" slot games at BCLC's 33 gaming facilities, the mobile and desktop versions of which are found on in British Columbia and Manitoba.
The deal expands IGT's 19-year relationship with BCLC and marks a digital milestone for both entities.
"Powerbucks delivers a whole new jackpot experience to players that is unique in North America," Monica Bohm, BCLC Vice President of eGaming, said. "Players can play Powerbucks for a chance to win jackpots of $1 million or more anytime from their mobile devices, home computers or local casinos."
Powerbucks players betting $0.50 to $2.99 are eligible for the game's static $1 million jackpot and players wagering a minimum $3 bet are eligible for the game's progressive jackpot that starts at $1 million.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
