32Red running biggest online slots tournament ever

14 July 2009

(PRESS RELEASE) -- 32Red, the award-winning online casino, has announced that it will be running its biggest ever online slots tournament this summer. The Grand Slam of Slots boasts a total prize pool of €1.3 million and a top prize of €1,000,000.

Slot tournaments first came to online casinos in 2008 as an entirely new way of playing online slots and have been popular ever since. Players join a tournament based on one of three online slot games which are available and play the slots as normal. However, instead of cash being awarded from certain combinations on the reels, players receive the equivalent payouts in points instead. The sum of these points establishes their position on a leader board which, when the slot tournament is finished, determines the amount of the prizepool the player receives. The higher up the leaderboard players finish the greater the prize. In this case, players in the Grand Slam of Slots battle for €1.3 million and can win €1 million for finishing in the top position.

Head of Marketing for 32Red, Mark Quayle, said, "The Grand Slam of Slots is one of the biggest gaming events we've ever been part of and is a great chance for players to experience these great games, the amazing Tomb Raider* online slot and become the first slot tournament millionaire in the process."

He added, "There are 481 winning places in addition to the massive €1,000,000 top spot, where players can win runner-up prizes worth up to €50,000. That means a ticket to the Grand Slam of Slots has a 20% chance of being a winner. In true 32Red style we've added 32 €1,000 bonus prizes that will keep the tournament exciting and competitive throughout the leaderboard and not just at the top. Players can even pickup a €1,000 prize in 8328th place."

Tickets to Grand Slam of Slots are not available to buy; instead 32Red will be offering competitions, leaderboards and more to allow players to secure their seat. The final will take place over 9 days between Friday the 23rd October and Monday November 2nd which allows for an unlimited number of rebuys. Quayle pointed out, "Rebuys are going to be pivotal to anyone serious about hitting one of the bigger prizes. The opportunity for more credit and time will boost leaderboard scores and could be the difference between finishing below the payment threshold or in the money. For those wanting to practice their slot tournament skills, 32Red runs daily tournaments and even free slot tournaments from inside their online casino."
