Slot supplier Everi Holdings announced the official kickoff of its seventh national TournEvent of Champions, a $1.3 million event staged on the manufacturer’s TournEvent tournament system. Satellite tournaments at Everi’s customer locations in the U.S. and Canada will result in finalists who are flown to Las Vegas in an all-expense trip for two, to compete in the national final event at the XS Nightclub in Wynn Las Vegas the week of the Global Gaming Expo in October.
Now called TournEvent of Champions: The Million Dollar Event, the championship round awards $1.3 million in total cash prizes.
“We are excited to kickoff our seventh annual TournEvent of Champions campaign which will again culminate in Las Vegas with a $1 million grand prize for one lucky slot player,” said Jeannie Moss, promotions manager at Everi. “Since its start as statewide slot tournaments in California and Washington in 2012 with only 30 participating casinos, our goal has been to create the premier slot tournament in North America and memorable experiences for all of our players and finalists.”
Each winning casino representative will receive $800 towards airfare to Las Vegas for themselves and a guest; three night/four-day hotel accommodations; transportation to and from McCarran International Airport; food and beverage credit; and a seat at The Million Dollar Event. The championship event will take place on October 16 at the XS Nightclub.
