MotorCity Casino Hotel has incorporated Multimedia Gaming’s TournEvent slot tournament solution into its mix of gaming options. It is the first Detroit-area gaming property to offer the popular slot tournament format to its players, according to MotorCity executives.

In addition to the excitement offered by traditional slot tournaments, TournEvent provides players a variety of fun new features, including live picture-in-picture video of competitors, an automated emcee and bonus objectives like “popping balloons” for additional points, according to company reports.

“We’re excited to be the only casino in this market to offer TournEvent,” said Phil Trofibio, vice president of slot operations at MotorCity Casino. “As a market leader, we relentlessly pursue ways to enhance the gaming experience by offering fun and exciting games that resonate with patrons. Our first slot tournament was a huge success, and we’re looking forward to the next ones.”

MotorCity Casino Hotel offers more than 2,900 slot machines, 59 table games, including blackjack, mini-baccarat, craps, and a variety of other gaming options. The property also provides a smoke-free poker room, complete with 12 tables, and a brand new smoke-free slots area.
