Canadian Players Hit Big IGT Jackpots

The good news for Canadian online gamers has been that over the years the state owned online casinos have taken on board the popular games suppliers. The even better news is that Canadian players are winning million dollar jackpots at these online casinos. The latest news concerns the online casino Espace Jeux, the software provider International Game Technology PLC (IGT) and the Powerbucks linked Crown of Egypt progressive slot.

Espace Jeux is the gaming site of Loto Québec, a body owned and operated by the Quebec provincial government. One of the software providers to this online casino is IGT. IGT has just reported fantastic hits on its omni-channel Powerbucks interprovincial jackpot link in Canada. The two hits within the space of one week delivered two record-setting payouts that totalled more than CA$2.2 million.

The first hit took place on July 17. A lucky player won a CA$1,000,000 jackpot playing the Crown of Egypt progressive slot game. The press release reported that this win marked the largest jackpot ever delivered on the Espace Jeux web site. However, this record was short lived. After just seven days, on July 24, the newly minted jackpot record was shattered when another lucky player won a larger payout of CA$1,222,069 on the same game. This record has stood for a month for the largest jackpot ever delivered on Espace Jeux. But looking at the traffic now being drawn to Crown of Egypt online slot there is no telling when a bigger hit will come along.

Crown of Egypt obviously has the popular Ancient Egypt theme. You can play with the standard set paylines but are more likely to unearth a fortune if you activate the trademark IGT MultiWay Xtra feature. The path to the progressive jackpot, which the two Canadian players won, is through the bonus game. This can be randomly triggered on any base game spin. You get a chance to win the Powerbucks progressive jackpot in one of three electrifying bonuses. If you land two or more glowing pyramid symbols in the centre column the free spins bonus is triggered. You will be awarded 10, 15, or even 20 free spins on reels that offer a richer payout table. The feature can retrigger multiple times for even more free spins.

Espace Jeux also offers bingo, sportsbooks and poker online. Apart from IGT it is powered by big names like IWG, OpenBet and Williams Interactive. It supports both downloadable software and instant play software and also mobile gaming.
