In just a few years, National TournEvent of Champions has established itself as the premier slot tournament event in the world.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 23, 2015
The Facebook version of Multimedia Games' TournEvent, which was launched in October, entered into a sweepstakes period starting March 11, 2015, when players could begin qualifying for a chance to play in the National TournEvent of Champions Championship during the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Running through August 31, 2015, slot tournament enthusiasts can turn their idle Facebook time into a chance to win a seat at the Championship, where $1.3 million will be up for grabs. Players can enter the online TournEvent sweepstakes by playing and earning up to 150 ‘e-tickets’ per day or mailing in a written entry, which will then be entered into a monthly random drawing for 200 Golden Passes — a player’s invitation to compete in the live National TournEvent of Champions qualifier held on September 29th in Las Vegas. The winner of the qualifier will then be awarded a spot at the National TournEvent of Champions on September 29-30, where the eventual champion will claim $1 million* of the $1.3 million purse, along with a dazzling National Champion’s ring.
"In just a few years, National TournEvent of Champions has established itself as the premier slot tournament event in the world,” said Ram V. Chary, GCA and Multimedia Games President and CEO. “There is only one National Slot Champion, and that person is crowned at our National TournEvent of Champions in September. Expanding the opportunity for that experience online through Facebook will bring even more excitement to TournEvent and casino floors.”
In addition to the online component of the campaign, the 2015 National TournEvent of Champions will be running live qualifying events at casinos across the country throughout the spring and summer months, with the Million Dollar* Event expected to host more than 200 players representing over 100 casinos. For the first time, the National Championship event will be held over two days — instead of a single evening — during G2E in Las Vegas.
Throughout the Sweepstakes period, written entries containing an eligible persons*** name, address, email address, and date of birth for the Facebook TournEvent of Champions daily drawings can be mailed to:
