Industry software giant Microgaming recently unveiled a number of innovative changes to its popular Slot and Blackjack Tournament schedule that will be on offer at participating Microgaming powered casinos.
These latest developments reflect Microgaming’s commitment to continuously enhance its offering to players by providing casino operators with innovative, cutting edge and exciting tournament formats and products.The latest offering does not disappoint and there are a host of new tournament types which have been designed to inject increased liquidity into the network:
Reloader Tournaments – This kind of Tournament is made up of a single round for a duration of 1 hour with a play time of approximately 5 minutes for a buy in of only $1. Add-Ons are not available, but players are allowed to “reload” for multiple winning opportunities.
This tournament allows for an even playing field, wherein every participant enjoys an equal chance of attaining the top score, with each turn that they take.
Extender Tournaments – These tournaments are score building events which take place in 1 hour and wherein participants are able to build a total score using “Add-Ons” (additional coins and time) to increase their initial base score in a period of $5. The highest accumulated total wins.
Buy in starts at as little as $2 and players are also able to “Re-Buy” into this event and attempt to better their previous score.
Survivor Tournaments – As the name implies, these are multiple round tournaments of 7 minutes per round wherein a percentage of players are eliminated at the end of each round and the highest placed “survivor” takes home the grand prize.
In order to participate, players buy-in to the event with a once off fee and no Add-On’s or Re-Buys are permitted within these tournament types.
One-Shot Tournaments – A One Shot Tournament is sure to get pulses racing as players enjoy only a single attempt to achieve their best possible overall score. This is definitely a fast paced, action packed tournament that is not for the faint hearted and where the winner takes home the grand prize pool.
There are no Add-Ons or Re-Buys offered in this tournament type.
In addition to the new tournament formats, Microgaming has also introduced three major Guaranteed Slot Tournaments: the Monthly Monster, the Midweek Moolah, and the Weekend Whopper. The “Midweek Moolah” and “Weekend Whopper” are both weekly tournaments which run over a period of 3 days and offer $10k in guaranteed prizes. The Monthly Monster however is the premier event of the latest schedule and is a $25k Guaranteed Tournament which runs for a period of one week from the final Monday of each month.
But wait, there’s more…Microgaming will also be introducing “Blackjack Attack” which is a brand new, weekly, $500 guaranteed Blackjack Tournament with multiple rounds wherein the top scoring players progress through the levels.
