1 June 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- International Game Technology PLC announced today that a lucky player at Casino Montréal in Québec, Canada won a $1,737,626 Canadian dollar jackpot on IGT's Powerbucks theme, Powerhits on 30 April 2017. The colossal payout marks the first million-dollar-plus jackpot awarded via Canada's Powerbucks link, an omni-channel wide area progressive game that links the jackpot prize pool between the land-based, mobile and desktop versions of the game.

"Powerbucks has been offered in Canada since the summer of 2016 and is very popular with customers. We were pleased to finally offer it to Quebecers in our casinos, gaming halls and online, and are delighted that the first progressive jackpot in Canada was won here at the Casino de Montréal," said Kevin Taylor, Operations President, Société des casinos du Québec.

"The expansion of IGT's Powerbucks installed base throughout Canada has created significant cross-channel jackpot liquidity and palpable player excitement," said David Flinn, IGT Regional Vice President, Canada. "Awarding the first life-changing Powerbucks jackpot in Canada at Casino Montréal marks an important gaming industry milestone and one that our customers can leverage to drive more awareness for the Powerbucks games in their land-based and online casinos."

IGT first launched Powerbucks in Canada in September 2016. The product is the world's first wide area progressive product to share jackpot liquidity across land-based, mobile and desktop versions of the game. Powerhits was the first game on the Powerbucks link and has since been joined by IGT game themes Crown of Egypt Video Slots and Arctic Gems Video Slots.

Powerbucks gives a player the opportunity to win life-changing jackpots with bets starting at CA$0.50.
