News is a little thin on the ground lately, especially when it comes to bingo, but we’ve just be informed of not one, but two epic wins that were created last month. Thank goodness for IGT and their life-changing jackpots, because now we get to add some news for you fleas to read and we know you’re just ‘itching’ to discover the details!
IGT, the software developer behind many progressive jackpot slots, created two more millionaires in May, taking the total number of players to win over one million dollars (or more!) to 17! Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East was the game of choice for one lucky Ontarian, who managed to land a record-breaking win of CA$2,256,578.
David Flinn, IGT Regional Vice President in Canada had this to say on the latest winners: “Despite the temporary closure of casinos in Canada, IGT’s Powerbucks has continued to engage online players, build significant jackpot liquidity and deliver big wins such as the record-setting CA$2.2 million jackpot awarded on OLG’s online casino. IGT Powerbucks’ omnichannel availability has fuelled its reputation as a growth-driving solution for Canada that delivers on its millionaire-making promise.”
Spinning and Grinning:
Just three days later, a Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway player landed a mega CA$1,015,561 jackpot! That’s more than CA$3.2 million in just a three-day period! And from the same online casino (PlayOLG!)! Both games are part of IGT’s Powerbucks slots series, which links online slots with land-based slots for wins of epic proportions!
Kim Clark, OLG Vice President of Product Management couldn’t wait to express how happy they were over the latest winners: “OLG introduced IGT’s Powerbucks game several months ago and our players were drawn to its exciting opportunity to win life-changing jackpots at any bet level. It’s thrilling for us to be able to say OLG players have won some great prizes, including the highest-ever Powerbucks jackpot!”
Wheel of Fortune has come a long way since its debut back in 1996, but despite this, players still enjoy what it has to offer (dazzling lights with an option to spin the wheel to be precise). Over the years there have been a few changes here and there – the biggest being the introduction of a progressive jackpot element. Then in 2018, Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway was unveiled with its holiday theme and mesmerising features.
Wilds, scatters, multipliers, re-spins and a total of five jackpots can be triggered…
…on any spin, it’s no wonder why it’s a popular choice among slots aficionados. If you can manage to tear your eyes away from the tropical surroundings and focus on the 5×3 reel engine, you’ll notice there’s plenty of ways to hit a big win (and bonus spins!), but the biggest of all hide within the wheel bonus and you’ll need 6 scatters to get your hands on one of those!
