Multimedia Games (Nasdaq: MGAM) is excited to announce that TournEvent of Champions – the fast-paced, nationwide slot tournament – is rolling into Paragon Casino and Resort on Saturday, June 29th. One winner will be crowned the Paragon Casino and Resort champion and will go on to compete against other top casino winners at the final tournament in Las Vegas.
This year, Multimedia Games is cohosting more than 60 TournEvent of Champions qualifying events with casinos across the nation. Winners from each casino 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. During the championship, they will represent their “home” casino and compete for a $100,000 grand prize 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.
On June 29th, excitement will fill the air as the branded TournEvent of Champions tour bus arrives at Paragon Casino and Resort bringing with it an almost contagious feeling of anticipation for both players and onlookers alike. It will certainly be a party on the casino floor – complete with music, balloons, and The Money Man® – TournEvent®’s larger-than-life mascot and good luck charm, and his entourage of MGirls.
Once the tournament begins, fast fingers and fast thinking will be key to taking home the prize. Players compete with each other in lightning-quick rounds, simultaneously spinning the slot reels and popping balloons on Multimedia Games’ touch screen machines. The 1st place winner will move on to represent Paragon Casino and Resort at the championship in Las Vegas later this year.
“Multimedia Games is thrilled to be able to bring TournEvent of Champions to Paragon Casino and Resort. We’re ready to share the excitement with the casino staff and players, as we look for America’s best slot machine tournament players,” said Linda Trinh, Multimedia Games’ Marketing and Promotions Manager. “We can’t wait to crown the winner and send him or her to Las Vegas to compete not only for the big cash prize, but for bragging rights for Paragon Casino and Resort,” she added.
