Well, it actually came February 2nd but I didn't see anyone post about it. It's called Bucko and it's played in the Maritime provinces (Atlantic Lottery Corp.). And unlike all the others down here in the U.S., the top prize is fixed at CDN$20,000, plus it only costs a Loonie!!! All the others have a growing jackpot (which is good) and a $2 price (which is bad). One of the better ones I have seen.

    Will Canada come up with more Match 6 clones? The Canadian "win for life" games have cash options.

      Maybe, Scientific Games dominates the Canadian on-line market (although they get no Canuck business in their bread and butter instant game division, mostly because Oberthur and Pollard Banknote are based in Canada), and more and more of SG's clients are adding similar games. My guess is SC being the next to add the format. And among Canadian provinces, I think it might be a while, but Ontario will probably be next if another is added.
