Are YOU the Best Slot Player in the Nation ? Now is your chance to prove it with with the TournEvent of Champions Multi-state tour culminating with a $250,000 final championship in Las Vegas.
The series was introduced by Multimedia Games as a high-energy national tour of fast-paced and interactive slot tournaments that will arrive at participating casinos via the 45-foot TournEvent of Champions tour bus.
The first of its kind, TournEvent of Champions is traveling to more than 60 casinos across 20 states in 7 months in search of America’s best slot tournament player.
Arriving at each stop on the tour with a great deal of exhilaration and a chance to win a spot to compete for the national title and a $100,000 grand prize at the tournament finale—TournEvent of Champions will be anticipated by casinos and players alike for its unmatched fanfare.
Multimedia Games is the first interactive gaming developer to create a slot tournament of this magnitude, with the interstate tour allowing players from across the country the opportunity to compete against each other at the finale in Las Vegas in September 2013. The national scale of TournEvent of Champions isn’t the only thing though that makes it the most dynamic slot tournament of its kind in the industry.
Multimedia Games’ slot machines are winning fans among casinos and players alike for their innovative technology, which takes cues from wildly popular consumer devices of today. Their slots use a combination of touchscreen play and player-facing cameras to engage players physically and psychologically, creating a spirited and unparalleled competition. People love the energy and personality the TournEvent® team brings to each casino, including a visit from The Money Man®, TournEvent of Champions’ larger-than-life mascot and good luck charm, which keeps both the players and spectators engaged throughout the entire tournament.
In addition to rapidly hitting the physical buttons to spin the reels, players can earn bonus points by simultaneously popping vividly animated balloons and other icons on the screen, which adds another layer of surprise and can possibly result in that player moving to first place on the leaderboard.
The combination of dynamic play and seeing competitors’ faces on the screen turns the slot experience from a relatively sedentary and isolated one to something thrilling, social, and truly requiring both skill and endurance. The touchscreen bonuses also mean the leaderboard can drastically change at any moment, making it truly anyone’s game until the final buzzer sounds. The Money Man and his entourage of “MGirls” make the experience unforgettable as well. It’s all part of Multimedia Games’ philosophy: Play louder.
Once the TournEvent of Champions begins, fast fingers and fast thinking are key to taking home the prize. Winners from each qualifying event will receive a five-night trip to Las Vegas (including airfare and accommodations for the participant and a guest) to play in the national championship at Lagasse’s Stadium at The Palazzo in September. The approximately 75 total finalists will compete for a $100,000 grand prize, bragging rights for their home casino, and the title of Nation’s Best Slot Tournament Player. An additional $150,000 (in total) will be awarded to other placing participants at the championship.
