Isle of Man – Microgaming shoots for World Cup feverBy Phil - 29 May 2014
Microgaming is kick-starting the summer with a €175,000 multi-player network tournament, Reels de Janeiro, on the recently launched Shoot! tournament slot.
Shoot! features five reels, 50 paylines and the most familiar of footballing faces from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Celebrating football’s greatest times, the slot has been so popular that it is now available in a tournament version.
To mark the launch of the Shoot! tournament slot, and with football’s showpiece event just weeks away, Microgaming is launching a mammoth tournament to get players in the carnival mood. Reels de Janeiro kicks-off on June 12, with the final whistle blowing on 31stJuly. With a capacity of 10,000 players, there is a spectacular prize pool of €175,000, with the top five netting €10,000 apiece! The tournament buy-in costs just €10, with re-buys and add-ons also available. Players can enter the tournament via any of Microgaming’s participating operators.
James Ford, spokesperson for Microgaming’s multi-player product, comments: “The countdown to Brazil has already begun and Reels de Janeiro is the perfect tournament for our operators’ players. We’ve combined a smashing game with an eye-catching prize pool; we know that this will be a highly popular offering across the network.”
The Reels de Janeiro event follows on from this month’s €100K Magnificent May, which made use of the Girls with Guns – Jungle Heattournament slot.
