MULTIMEDIA GAMES PARTNERS WITH CASINO PLAYER PUBLISHING FOR ADDED PROMOTION OF NATIONAL TOURNEVENT OF CHAMPIONS
AUSTIN, Texas, January 30, 2014 – Multimedia Games announced a partnership with Casino Player Publishing LLC this month, naming Strictly Slots magazine, one of its top gambling consumer titles, the “Official Magazine” for the 2014 National TournEvent of Champions® (“NTOC”) tour.
Beginning in May and culminating at the Championship on October 1, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the NTOC tour promotions team will visit over 80 casinos coast-to-coast and bring more than 90 champions to Vegas to fight it out for a share of $500,000 in guaranteed cash prizes and the title of the Nation’s Best Tournament Player.
As part of the partnership between Multimedia Games and Casino Player Publishing, each monthly edition of Strictly Slots will chronicle the latest news and updates from the 80+ regional qualifying tournaments running from May through October. In addition, Casino Player Publishing will provide all of the 80+ participating casinos with up to 25,000 digital annual subscriptions to Strictly Slots as a gift for their casino players, totaling over two million free subscriptions.
“We have heard from players from all over the country how much they love National TournEvent of Champions, and this partnership with Strictly Slots helps us keep in touch with them every month,” said Patrick Ramsey, CEO of Multimedia Games. “Having Strictly Slots as the official NTOC magazine adds an extra element of excitement for our customers and players, as it heightens the exposure for the casinos’ events as well as for their winners. TournEvent® has revolutionized slot tournaments, and NTOC is quickly becoming something every slot player wants to be a part of!”
Strictly Slots Magazine is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2014 and has been providing slot players with exclusive information, such as which casinos offer their players the loosest slots, where and how to play the newest slot machines, and in-depth coverage of all player’s clubs. “Everyone involved in the creation of each monthly issue of Strictly Slots is delighted to be named the Official Magazine for National TournEvent of Champions,” said Glenn Fine, Group Publisher and CEO of Casino Player Publishing. “In addition to keeping the thousands of slot players who will be competing updated on the latest news, Strictly Slots will also be able to provide step-by-step news coverage of the build-up to the Championship to the rest of its national readership! I expect there will be as much excitement around NTOC this year as the World Series of Poker— except there are many, many more slot enthusiasts than there are poker players,” said Fine.
