Multimedia Games Holding Company, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGAM), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Multimedia Games, Inc. (“Multimedia Games” or “the Company”), a leader in slot tournament systems, announced today the launch of TournEvent Ace ™ , a new iOS app and related contest that provides players nationwide with a second chance to participate in the first-ever 2013 National TournEvent of Champions ® which culminates with a national final in Las Vegas on September 25, 2013. Running through September 5, 2013, TournEvent Ace features the Company’s popular Triple Cheeseburger Deluxe ™ slot theme which has been converted to the iOS platform specifically for the contest in partnership with Austin-based Kalani Games.
Subject to applicable rules, players 21 years of age or older can download the specially-designed app onto their iOS-based mobile device – at www.tourneventofchampions.com or from the iTunes Store – to enter the contest after which they will have the opportunity to play each day to earn entries into the nationwide drawing. Two lucky winners will win a five-night trip to Las Vegas (including airfare and accommodations for the winning participant and a guest) and a golden ticket to compete for a share of over $250,000 in prizes at the 2013 National TournEvent of Champions final on September 25, 2013, at Lagasse’s Stadium at The Palazzo.
Patrick Ramsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Multimedia Games, commented, “Our ongoing nationwide TournEvent of Champions debuted in March to rave reviews and is demonstrating the power of TournEvent to deliver one-of-a-kind entertainment and generate instant floor-wide buzz. Customers are seeing higher floor traffic and increased floor-wide revenue performance, and players are reveling in the chance to compete in Las Vegas later this year for a share of over $250,000 in prizes, including a $100,000 grand prize. With the recent launch of TournEvent Ace, we are now extending the TournEvent of Champions experience to all players who are looking for a second chance to join the party in Las Vegas in September. We believe this new contest will further highlight our award-winning TournEvent solution and prove to be a winner for our customers and players alike.”
The iOS version of Triple Cheeseburger Deluxe offers players a number of ways to earn entries into the TournEvent Ace drawing as they complete up to 30 spins per day. Completing a 30 spin session will earn one entry and the three highest scoring participants each day will receive 100, 50 and 25 entries into the drawing, respectively. Other ways to earn entries include receiving certain winning reel combinations during base game play, playing regularly, playing early or late in the day and building specific burgers in the burger-building bonus. On September 6, 2013, two entries will be randomly selected from all eligible entries to compete in the National TournEvent of Champions final in Las Vegas.About TournEvent Multimedia Games’ award-winning TournEvent slot tournament system is currently installed at 170 casinos nationwide, offering industry-leading functionality that has revolutionized the slot tournament experience.
