Microgaming Offers Big Tournament News in March

March 3, 2014


Players who enjoy slots usually have one main complaint: the lack of competition. To help remedy this, online casinos started offering slots tournaments. There are many different formats of these tournaments, but they all have one thing in common: The whole point is to add a competitive element to a chance-based game. Unfortunately for players who like these events, most casino sites don't offer a whole lot of them. However, with some recent news from Microgaming, you might have more options to get in them during the month of March than you ever thought possible.

Two big tournaments are going down at Microgaming-powered online casino sites during the month of March. First off is a €1,000 prize pool event that will pay to 20 players. This small event starts on March 24, and it will be on the new Girls With Guns — Jungle Heat tournament slot that's going live on March 19. With a new tournament slot and a tournament event to celebrate its release, it's a good month for slots tournament fans.

But that's not all. For the entire month of March, you're going to be able to take part in the March to Riches slot tournament on the Finer Reels of Life video slot. This is another tournament slot, one that was released in January. The prize pool for the March to Riches tournament is going to be a staggering €100,000 with €15,000 going to first place.

Microgaming spokesman James Ford said, "Our Festive Frenzy tournament in December proved very effective. We know that our operators' players love attention-grabbing prize pools and that's why we saw a large volume of players participate. We're delighted to be hosting another tournament in March with a mega prize pool of €100,000, and with multi-player continuing to grow in popularity, expect to see even more exciting tournaments of this scale in coming months.

At Microgaming, they're doing a big push for their multi-player and tournament-based games. This is in part to help keep players interested in the social aspect of gambling which was previously something you had to play in a live establishment to enjoy. With big tournaments like the ones that are going on this month, Microgaming is showing that they are really taking the tournament scene very seriously. Come cash in at your favorite Microgaming casino for a chance at the €15,000 top prize.
