IGT Cements Its Canadian Footprint with the Launch of High-Performing Games on PlayAlberta.ca

IGT, a leading developer of lottery games and online Casino slots, has announced a deal with the AGLC (Alberta Gaming, Liquor, and Cannabis Commission) to launch its top-performing games on PlayAlberta.com. The company hopes this milestone agreement will help increase the popularity of its Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games in Canada.

Through this agreement, popular games from Powerbucks and MegaJackpots will be accessible to online gamblers in the Canadian province via PlayAlberta.ca. This is Alberta’s only regulated online gambling site, meaning the deal is vital for IGT and its Canadian fans.

The following titles will be available to play on PlayAlberta.ca:

  • Wheel of Fortune Ruby Riches
  • Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East
  • MegaJackpots Cleopatra
  • Wolf Run

IGT describes Powerbucks as the “first omnichannel WAP game,” linking a mouthwatering jackpot prize pool between land-based casino gaming machines and online casino games. As for MegaJackpot, this is an exclusively digital wide area progressive jackpot network from IGT PlayDigital.

In an official statement, the company happily noted that this is the first time Powerbucks and MegaJackpots games are available from coast to coast in Canada.

Commenting on this agreement, David Flinn, IGT SVP, Canada, South and Central America, remarked: “IGT is thrilled to expand our wildly successful Powerbucks network to AGLC, now delivering the excitement of these omnichannel WAP jackpot games to players across all Canadian jurisdictions where online gaming is legal and regulated.

“AGLC players will have even more opportunities to win big rewards with the launch of IGT PlayDigital’s MegaJackpots games featuring top-performing IGT themes. For AGLC, our wide area progressive games help differentiate its online casino, drive growth and provide the ultimate player experiences.”
