WEEKEND: Slot machine contest slated at 7 Cedars Casino

Peninsula Daily News

BLYN — The flashing lights, whooping sirens and delighted screams that accompany slot machine wins will come at a much faster clip Saturday at 7 Cedars Casino Resort as hundreds compete in the TournEvent of Champions slot machine contest.

The casino awarded 400 golden tickets to the tournament over the past month and a half, and those entrants will hit the one-armed bandits for a shot to win the local title and a ticket to the national finals tournament in Las Vegas.

The all-day tournament begins at 11 a.m., and Judy Walz, marketing director at 7 Cedars, said the quick, aggressive style of slot play and the popping of balloons in the machines promises to provide an entertaining spectacle for spectators.

“These are going to be lightning-quick rounds, so things should get pretty heated,” Walz said.

Three rounds will determine the winner, with the field cut in half at each break.

Champion crowned

The winner will be crowned the 7 Cedars Casino Resort champion and will win a $1,000 top prize, going on to compete against winners from more than 60 other TournEvent of Champions qualifying events from casinos across the nation.

A total of $2,600 in cash prizes will be awarded to runners-up at the 7 Cedars event.

The 7 Cedars champion receives a five-night trip to Lagasse's Stadium at Las Vegas' The Palazzo in September for the national event, which awards a $100,000 grand prize to the winner.

The Money Man, TournEvent's larger-than-life mascot and good-luck charm, and his entourage of MGirls will tour the casino floor with party favors.

The tournament is sponsored by Multimedia Games, which supplies gaming machines to casinos across the nation.
