New Record Set for Largest Slot Machine Tournament
A casino in Washington State has broken the record for the largest slot machine tournament. A total of 3,173 participants came to the event at Muckleshoot Casino which was part of the celebration of the casino’s 21st anniversary.
It was free to participate in the event and there was over $100,000 in cash and prizes given away to participants. The tournament’s top player won $21,000 in cash and a four night trip to Las Vegas to compete for a chance to win $1 million in Everi’s TournEvent of Champions championship in September.
The general manager of Muckleshoot Casino, Conrad Granito, said that it was a “thrilling honour” to set the record and described the day as “exhilarating fun”. The vice president of marketing at Everi, Linda Trinh, said that the company was proud to be part of the event.
