Monte Casino Launches 2016 Slots Factor Tournament
Press Release July 2016
For the fourth time the popular Slots Factor tournament has launched at Montecasino. This major tournament will run across Tsogo Sun’s 14 casinos for eight weeks from 18 July 2016, with a total prize package of R1.8-million in cash, with a guaranteed first prize of R1-million in cash.
“Our annual Slots Factor always creates an exciting buzz on our gaming floor,” says Glenn Joseph, Montecasino GM.
Daily Slots Factor heats will run on the casino floor until 11 September 2016. The unit finals will be hosted on 17 September 2016 with the unit winners competing in the group-wide finals at Gold Reef City Casino on 30 September 2016 and 1 October 2016.
The tournament is designed to appeal to everyone, with a cash buy-in of just R100. The proceeds from the buy-ins across the group, goes into the prize pot, which means that as the number of buy-ins increases, so too does the pot. In 2015 the tournament attracted a total of 3004 buy-ins at Montecasino alone, and the final total payout over the course of the exciting eight-week tournament was over R3-million in cash.
Kamal Parbhoo, Slots Manager at Monte Casino, says, “With the stakes rising as the buy-in to the tournament grows, so does the fun and anticipation for hundreds of hopeful and quick-fingered players who regularly enjoy Montecasino’s vast array of almost 2 000 slot machines.” He adds that the slot machines are extremely popular and the Slots Factor tournament adds a whole new dimension of excitement for participants as absolutely anyone can win the big top prizes.
Packaged buy-ins are again a feature of the tournament, and include R200 for two tournament entries and R50 in FreePlay, and R500 for five tournament entries and R150 in FreePlay, valid for the day of play only. Heat times will be three minutes for each of the qualifying heats and five minutes for the unit finals and group finals.
Added features are that the participant obtaining the highest score from a single buy-in at each casino over the eight-week period will qualify for the grand finals at Gold Reef City Casino Casino without having to play off in the individual casino finals, and that FreePlay prizes are being awarded to Slots Factor top daily credit earners.
The top placed slots finalists from each casino will receive complimentary travel to and accommodation at Gold Reef City Casino to compete for the big R1-million prize over the weekend of 30 September 2016 and 1 October 2016.
