Play for the $1M+ PowerBucks jackpot on PowerHits Slot at live and online casinos BC.
When the weather cooperates, British Columbia‘s pristine landscape is a perfect breeding ground for outdoor activities. Fishing, boating, hiking, skiing, and a host of other sports activities are enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. In the harsh winter months, however, entertainment is often sought in other ways.
BC, Canada is rather proud of its gambling industry. The province hosts well over 30 casinos and gaming facilities, and was the first in the country to regulate and produce a homegrown online gaming market for residents.
When it’s too cold out to skim the slopes, residents often head to the nearest gaming hall for a warmth-inducing cocktail and flutter on the slots. In the worst of climates, when travel is impeded or simply undesirable, a tablet, steaming cup of hot cocoa, and warm blanket will do the trick as players log onto their favorite online casino for a different form of adventurous entertainment.
One game that’s become enormously popular of late is the PowerHits Slot by International Game Technology (IGT). It carries one of the brand’s most famous progressives, known as the PowerBucks Bonus Jackpot. It guarantees a minimum $1,000,000 payout, and doesn’t usually take long to make a new millionaire out of the next lucky Canadian.
PowerHits Slot w/ $1M+ PowerBucks Jackpot
Introduced in 2016, the PowerHits Progressive slot machine is exclusive to Canada. It’s currently available at 33 BC casinos, as well as the provincially run online casino, PlayNow.ca. It can also be found in a select few casinos throughout Manitoba and Quebec, and the latter’s online gambling destination, EspaceJeux.com.
It’s not just the massive jackpot, re-seeded at $1 million each time it’s struck, that draws so many players to this reel spinner. The game is teeming with futuristic graphics and valuable features, including wilds, free spins and a trio of heart-pounding bonus rounds.
PowerHits is not your typical slot game. It comes with an elongated 5×8 reel-set and 300 paylines. Players must wager in $0.05 increments, betting anywhere from 1 to 60 coins ($0.05 to $3) per play. A minimum $0.50 bet is required to qualify for the jackpot. The more you bet, the higher your chances become of being the next PowerBucks millionaire.
To Unlock the Gateway to the progressive, players must land Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 in a single spin. This brings up a Player’s Choice bonus selection, in which they’ll choose from three optional games—Power Picks, Power Path, or Stacked Wheel. Each has a chance of delivering the millionaire-maker progressive.
PowerBucks Bonus Rounds
Power Picks Bonus Round: In this game, players will select 10 of 25 boxes. Beneath some are lightning bolts, and the rest blanks. Afterwards, players are given 1 additional power pick from 5 extra boxes. This will either reveal a lightning bolt, cash prize or multiplier of 2-10x. To win the progressive, all 11 picks must be lightning bolts.
Power Path Bonus Round: This feature is akin to a board game. Players have 3 spins to move along a path. Along the way, positions on the board could award a cash prize, multiplier or extra spin(s). Players must reach the end of the path for a shot at the progressive jackpot.
Stacked Wheel Bonus Round: This game features a series of bonus wheels with cash prizes. Spin to collapse each reel and win prizes. Collapse all reels for a chance to win the progressive on the final spin.
At time of writing, the PowerBucks Jackpot is worth $1,130,063. Five new millionaires are celebrating since April, 2017, with the most recent on October 1.
