Multimedia Games’ 2013 National TournEvent® Of Champions™ Crowns Nation’s First Ever Best Slot Tournament Player

Multimedia Games, Inc. (“Multimedia Games” or “the Company”), a leader in slot tournament systems, announced today that following a nationwide tour of over 30,000 miles to 77 casinos across 17 states, Maria Lindell, who represented Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Onamia, Minnesota, was crowned champion of the 2013 National TournEvent of Champions ®, a first-of-its-kind nationwide slot tournament powered by the Company’s award-winning TournEvent ® slot tournament system. Ms. Lindell was awarded the top prize of $100,000 in cash and the championship ring on September 25, 2013, during the final event at Lagasse’s Stadium at The Palazzo in Las Vegas and was recognized as the nation’s best tournament player from a field of nearly 200,000 initial entrants nationwide. Other top winners from the final event included:
  • 1 st Place – $100,000 – Maria Lindell representing Grand Casino Mille Lacs
  • 2 nd Place – $50,000 – Sheila Ewing representing Newcastle Casino
  • 3 rd Place – $25,000 – Lawrence Cason representing Lucky Star Concho

“On behalf of Multimedia Games, I’d like to congratulate Maria for her thrilling victory as well as all the finalists who joined us last week in Las Vegas to help make the 2013 National TournEvent of Champions a resounding success,” said Patrick Ramsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Multimedia Games. “With approximately 1,000 participants, family members, friends, employees and partners in attendance, the final event was filled with incredible energy that created an unmatched atmosphere fitting for this unique event. We believe the National TournEvent of Champions created an entirely new experience for players and provided our participating customers with a powerful marketing tool to create excitement on their slot floors during the in-casino qualifying tournaments.

TournEvent is a truly innovative, turnkey slot tournament solution that is proven to generate instant floor-wide buzz, higher floor traffic and increased revenue performance when in use. As we look forward to the 2014 National TournEvent of Champions, we are ramping up the prizes, adding a second touring bus and expecting even greater levels of participation as casino operators have the chance to participate not only in the extraordinary excitement of the final event in Las Vegas but also by the in-casino qualifying events over the course of more than four months of non-stop action. We look forward to working closely with our customers to ensure that next year’s event takes the TournEvent of Champions to a whole new level.”

Ronda Weizenegger, General Manager of Grand Casino Mille Lacs, added, “At Grand Casino, we are always looking for opportunities to bring exciting new promotions and special events to our guests. We are thrilled that Maria not only won the Grand Casino Mille Lacs event, but went on to win the top prize at the National TournEvent of Champions Finals.”
