Everi's TournEvent of Champions enters final round

6 September 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- After five months of intense TournEvent of Champions qualifying tournaments at 89 casinos across the U.S., Canada, and Peru, the stage is set for the thrilling conclusion to TournEvent of Champions, the gaming industry's premier slot tournament competition, presented by Everi Games Inc. Finalists from this year's participating casinos will gather in Las Vegas and compete for slot tournament supremacy at The Million Dollar Event, which is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. PT on 28 September at XS Nightclub in the beautiful Wynn Las Vegas/Encore Resort. The TournEvent of Champions finale will also be live streamed over the internet at Twitch, providing slot tournament fans at home with a front row seat to all the action.

Now in its fifth year, TournEvent of Champions is powered by Everi's award-winning TournEvent system, consistently recognized year after year as the gaming industry's top slot tournament platform. Rebranded in 2015 as The Million Dollar Event, the TournEvent of Champions finale features $1.3 million in total cash prizes and a first place grand prize of $1 million.

"There's nothing quite like TournEvent of Champions and we are excited to partner once again with the outstanding team at Wynn/Encore as we get set to present another memorable million dollar finale," said Michael Rumbolz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Everi. "It will be a life-changing moment at the conclusion of the final round when we find out which lucky player will become our second TournEvent of Champions millionaire."

The 2016 TournEvent of Champions campaign kicked off on 30 April with a record-breaking slot tournament held at Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn, Washington. Officially certified by Guinness World Records as the Largest slot tournament, 3,173 slot players participated on a single day to help set the new record.

Over the course of the five-month campaign that followed, the TournEvent of Champions busses traveled nearly 42,000 miles to visit the participating U.S. casinos, and more than 200,000 slot players took part in this year's qualifying events. The 2016 TournEvent of Champions was a runaway success thanks to the dedicated event team at Everi, its participating casinos, and a number of important sponsors: Effinet, Norwegian Cruise Line, Southern California Gaming Guide, Creative Surfaces, PC Promotions, Sparco, Columbus Data Services, Sequel Data, and TransAct Technologies.

"It's been truly amazing to see the growth of TournEvent of Champions over the past five years as it has become the premier slot tournament campaign that is often imitated, but never duplicated," said Linda Trinh, Everi Vice President of Marketing & Promotions. "We couldn't be more excited to complete this year's campaign at XS and host an extraordinary slot tournament our finalists will never forget."

As a precursor to the 28 September finale, the third annual TournEvent for Charities slot tournament will take place at 2 p.m. PT on 27 September at Everi's Global Gaming Expo booth #1116. TournEvent for Charities will feature celebrities and media personalities competing in a fun-filled slot tournament on behalf of their favorite charities. All G2E attendees are invited to visit Everi's booth and cheer on the players as they spin their way to victory.
