Grand Slam of Slots II
In late 2009 Microgaming annouced the "Grand Slam of Slots", a tournament that pitted online pokies lovers all over the world against each other for the chance to win some huge prizes. If you took part in or heard about the tournament then it'll come as no surprise that following the success of the first installment, Microgaming have organised the "Grand Slam of Slots II". If you haven't heard of the tournament, or wonder what's even involved, you can read up on pokies tournaments here.
This year Microgaming have really pushed the boat out and are offering a special prize of $2.43 million prize USD ( roughly $2.36 million AUD ). They must be insane! ( mainly because the prize is in gold bullion, not in the more popular format of.. Actual money. )
How to play in the Grand Slam of Slots II tournament
The grand slam of slots II tournament is already underway, but there's still plenty of time to get yourself involved and try your luck at winning some serious cash.
To get a place in the tournament, you can compete in one of the Grand Slam of Slots daily freerolls or enter the "Weekly Lotto Draw". Before you can do either of those, you'll need to have an account with a casino that are involved with the GSOS.
Once you've signed up to one of those casino's, make your way over to the slot tournaments section where you'll see plenty of free satellites and qualifiers that will get you a place in the final.
The final will be played on Thunderstruck II, will start at 5am GMT on Friday the 27th May, and will finish 11 days later on Monday the 6th of June 2011 at 5pm GMT.
The last winner ( A chap named Stefan from London, England ) walked away with the top prize of one million euros and the unofficial title of "that lucky g*t", making him the first "pokie made" millionaire, so if you're thinking about joining the tournament, expect some company! Good luck!
