US gambling giant International Game Technology has announced that it is launching a new gaming system dubbed PowerBucks, which will link land and online game jackpots and allow those prizes to be won with different bet levels.
PowerBucks will include jackpot meters and a real time winners feed on the games, and will potentially allow for larger jackpot wins at a higher frequency. The ability for players to win jackpots on different betting levels is likely to be a popular feature with the slots.
Commenting on the launch IGT Vice President of Product Management Joe Sigrist said, "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."
"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."
