The first prize in the largest slot tournament in Station Casinos’ history was given away this Sunday just gone to Las Vegas resident Maria L. Maria placed first out of the four hundred competitors vying for the $100,000 prize, and a chance to compete for the $500,000 top prize to be awarded later this year at the $2 Million Jumbo Slot Championship final tournament at Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa. A total of $250,000 in prizes was awarded to the top one hundred finishing players.
There were crowds around the slot machine games all night long, as people not only competed to win the prize but also stood around to watch the competition and see who was in the lead. Maria, a long time guest of Station Casinos, was ecstatic after the awards dinner and ceremony Sunday evening. “I won the $100,000!” she shouted at hearing her name, half in recognition and half in disbelief. “I think this is the greatest promotion Station Casinos has ever done,” she went on to say. “My family and I have been going [here] since it was Bingo Palace. I met my husband there; it’s a very special place to me.”
“This tournament is another exciting way for us to reward our Boarding Pass members,” said Staci Columbo, vice president of marketing and advertising. “There is no fee to enter and there is no cost to become a Boarding Pass cardholder, all you have to do is play.”
Last weekend’s tournament was the first of three pre qualifier rounds leading up to the final tournament in December. The next qualifier tournament is scheduled for the 28th- 30th of next month at Texas Station. Boarding Pass and Amigo Club members are eligible for all pre-qualifier events, with the top twenty five winners at each receiving guaranteed spots at the final tournament. This is certainly an exciting opportunity to not only play a lot of slots and have a lot of fun, but also to really win big if your luck is in and you can battle against the other players in the tournament!
