April 15, 2014
IGT, a global leader in compelling casino gaming entertainment announced that Powerbucks, a multistate Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpot link, will be deployed at Caesars Entertainment properties in approved jurisdictions, starting with the states of New Jersey and Nevada.
Powerbucks is a brand new add-on to IGT's MegaJackpots themes that enhances the jackpot pool from one gaming mecca to another, as players join together in their quest for the big win. "We're excited to transform the jackpot experience in partnership with Caesars Entertainment," said Eric Tom, IGT EVP of Global Sales. "With Powerbucks, IGT re-imagines casino gaming thrills by creating more winners, more often, across multiple states. We all win when players engage more, and Powerbucks enables our customers to attract more players to casinos with the promise of more jackpots."
"We are continually seeking new and innovative ways to bring more excitement to the gaming experience. Together, IGT and Caesars Entertainment own the legacy of creating the most millionaires in the industry; now with Powerbucks, we're creating a whole new level of excitement around winning," added Melissa Price, Senior Vice President of Gaming for Caesars Entertainment.
