International Game Technology PLC (IGT) announced this week that its Powerbucks slots awarded the third-largest jackpot in the history of the product at Casino Nanaimo in British Columbia, Canada.

This incredible IGT Powerbucks win demonstrates BCLC’s commitment to elevating entertainment and excitement for our players,” said Dan Beebe, Interim Chief Operating Officer at BCLC.
