Everi Holdings will be helping Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn, Washington, mark its 21st anniversary with a celebration destined to be one for the record books.
On April 30, the casino known as the “Biggest and Best in the Northwest” will kick-off of Everi’s 2016 TournEvent of Champions as it seeks the distinction of hosting the world’s largest slot tournament.
“Muckleshoot Casino has a history of being an industry leader so attempting the Guinness World Records title for the largest slot tournament is a natural fit,” said Conrad Granito, General Manager of Muckleshoot Casino. “As the first gaming facility in Washington to offer machine play, cashless technology, and interactive in-game bonuses, we now aim to be the state’s first casino to secure a world record as certified by an official Guinness World Records
The record attempt will take place at Muckleshoot Casino on Saturday, April 30, beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing until history is made. To claim the designation, more than 3,001 participants must take part.
More than $100,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to participants who are each guaranteed to win at least $21 in Free Play. The top finisher at Muckleshoot Casino’s April 30 event will receive $21,000 in cash and a four-night trip to Las Vegas to compete for a chance to win $1m in Everi’s national TournEvent of Champions championship event on September 28, 2016.
“While our TournEvent of Champions slot tournaments always bring fun and excitement to casinos nationwide, Muckleshoot Casino has taken its event to an entirely new level by attempting to break the record for world’s largest slot tournament,” added Linda Trinh, Everi Vice President, Marketing & Promotions. “We’re thrilled to partner with such a distinguished property like Muckleshoot Casino and look forward to making this TournEvent of Champions event one for the record books.”
The official Guinness World Records attempt at the Largest Slot Tournament will mark the culmination of Muckleshoot Casino’s landmark 21st anniversary celebration. From its humble start in a tent in 1995, Muckleshoot Casino now proudly serves as the largest gaming establishment in the Pacific Northwest.
