Everi Holdings announced that it has signed an agreement with the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) to deploy the award-winning TournEvent tournament system across the province’s 35 casinos.
TournEvent is Everi’s unique tournament system designed to inject excitement into the slot tournament system. The company holds the “TournEvent of Champions” every year, bringing winners of satellite tournaments across the U.S. and Canada together in Las Vegas to compete for millions in prizes, including a $1 million top prize.
The first TournEvent systems and related electronic gaming machines were expected to ship to 11 BCLC properties in December for installation in January 2019. Systems and gaming devices are expected to ship to the remaining 24 properties during the first half of 2019.
“We appreciate the BCLC’s extensive review and approval of our TournEvent system among a competitive field,” said Ed Peters, Everi’s executive vice president, sales and marketing. “As British Columbia’s slot tournament system provider of choice, Everi is excited to deploy TournEvent in casinos across the province as we continue to grow our games business in Canada. We believe agency approval is a testament to our innovative, easy-to-use platform.”
