All-In-One: IGT Connects Online and Land-Based Jackpots

All-In-One: IGT Connects Online and Land-Based Jackpots

Software developer IGT has launched the PowerBucks system, a Wide Area Progressive jackpot product that integrates land-based and online jackpots, soon to be featured at William Hill and Vera&John casinos.

Ok, so you’ve read the news about millionaire prizes taking place in Vegas, Macau or Saint Tropez, with prizes constantly surpassing the 10m Euro mark; but for some reason online video slots barely reach the level of a 5m Euro jackpot (except for Mega Fortune).

IGT is now transforming the entire gaming landscape by integrating land-based and online jackpots into one single platform, enabling players to hit larger jackpots at a higher frequency.

IGT is ecstatic to shake up the gaming landscape with PowerBucks, commented Joe Sigrist, IGT’s Vice Proesident of Product Management.

We don’t want to over-hype this, but imagine playing one of IGT’s MegaJackpot games (Cleopatra, Cluedo, Monopoly or the forthcoming Avatar, to name but a few) and seeing the jackpots double in just a matter of minutes after you start playing.

The new system will bring land-based venues and online betting sites closer together, described by IGT as the future of gambling. IGT’s Sigrist added:

We’re rolling out a future-proofed gaming experience that is ready to grow with the continuing evolution of Wide Area Progressives.

We have yet to see when IGT’s MegaJackpot games will be connected so that everyone can play them at William Hill and at Vera&John Casinos, two of IGT’s largest licensees.

Will this technology make jackpots bigger than ever before? Of course it will. Will it make video slot tournament competitions more challenging? Certainly, but it will also exponentially increase the jackpots’ hit frequency, giving more players the chance to win millionaire prizes without waiting too long for the jackpot to be refilled.

From coast-to-coast, to cyberspace and beyond borders, PowerBucks establishes the cross-platform infrastructure to create jackpots like never before, commented Sigrist.
