The Grand Slam is a term that signifies excitement and importance. In baseball, it is the biggest and most important hit: a bases-loaded home run. In tennis, it is winning the four biggest tournaments of the year: the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. At Denny’s, it’s a breakfast feast you can get for one low price. Microgaming casinos tried to leverage the connotations of the term with the original Grand Slam of Slots tournament in 2009. Now it is back for its second installment, the Grand Slam of Slots II.
As the name indicates, this is a big tournament – one of the biggest of the year, in fact. It begins March 15 and doesn’t end until June 6. The prize pool is deep, with the first-place winner walking away with $100,000. If that prize isn’t exciting enough, try this one: $2.43 million of gold bullion. Now are you interested? The tournament takes place in two parts and can be found at any Microgaming casino, such as Platinum Play Casino.
The first part of the tournament takes place from March 15 to May 22. During that time, players earn points for the money they win and the top 120 players at the end of that tournament earn tickets granting them free admission to the Grand Final, which takes place from May 27 to June 6. You definitely want to earn one of those tickets, because if you have to buy your way into the Final, it will cost you $200.
During the first part of the tournament, players can also win prizes such as a year of Diamond status in the VIP club. Like the Grand Slam tennis tournaments, each section has many different match-ups. A large suite of popular Migrogaming slots are available to play. Some of the mini-tournaments are invitation-only, though, so be sure to check your email.
To take part in the tournament, all you have to do is register for a real-money account at a Microgaming casino, such as Platinum Play, and join the tournament. It’s that easy. Of course, you don’t have to play at Platinum Play. You can try others, such as Roxy Palace or Crazy Vegas. It’s up to you. Every casino in the Microgaming network is carrying the tournament.
Note: Microgaming casinos don’t accept U.S. customers. So if you’re in the United States, sorry guys.
