“The Powerbucks, which has been in operation since the summer of 2016 in British Columbia, is a great success and is very popular with western Canadian customers.”, the President of Operations at the Societe des Casinos of Quebec, Kevil Taylor, said.

Powerbucks jackpot was launched in Quebec in January 2017 at casinos and gaming salons and it features a prize which starts at $1 million which can be won with mere $0.50 which is the initial stake.

“We were happy to finally offer it to Quebec customers, but we are even happier that the first progressive jackpot in Canada will be won at the Casino de Montreal.”, Taylor added.

Powerbucks slot is an innovative game that links online gambling with land-based slots, connecting venues in British Columbia and Manitoba. It regularly features significant jackpots which are the result of the high number of players which get channelled in together through three provinces.
