Multimedia Games-an Austin, Texas-based company that designs, manufactures and distributes advanced gaming technology for the commercial and Native American casino markets-unveiled their 2013 TournEvent of Champions: a high-energy national tour of fast-paced and interactive slot tournaments that will arrive at participating casinos via the 45-foot TournEvent of Champions tour bus.

The first event of its kind, TournEvent of Champions is traveling to more than 60 casinos across 20 states in seven months in search of America’s best slot tournament player. Arriving at each stop on the tour with a chance to win a spot to compete for the national title and a $100,000 grand prize at the tournament finale, TournEvent of Champions will be anticipated by casinos and players alike for its unmatched fanfare, according to a company press release.

The TournEvent of Champions kicked off March 2 at the Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, Calif. The finale for the nationwide event will take place in Las Vegas in September.

Multimedia Games’ TournEvent slot tournament system is currently installed at 137 casinos nationwide, offering industry-leading functionality that has revolutionized the slot tournament experience. With the TournEvent system, casino operators can switch networked slot machines from in-revenue gaming to out-of-revenue tournament status at the touch of a button-eliminating the hassle of chip changes, machine moves, or separate tournament areas.  TournEvent 4.0 enables operators to create unique team slot tournaments for the first time, offering a variety of customizable configurations based on the number of players, mechanics of team advancement, rankings and tournament prize awards.
