Way back in April this year Microgaming (the world’s largest provider of online gaming software) announced a new tournament, the ‘Grand Slam of Slots’, which would create the first ever online slots tournament millionaire.
And now finally after months and months of qualifying games and competitions between July and October, and the highly anticipated and competitive finale that took 11 days to complete, the winner has been announced!! One lucky player from South London, Stefan (alias Pattoned), is the winner taking home the enviable 1 million euro jackpot! He was just one of thousands who entered the qualifying games and apparently qualified back in July with a tiny 2 Euro bet!
The final tournament was the cult-favourite Tomb Raider slot game with over 8,000 players competing fiercely. Apparently Stefan played for days until he finally posted the winning score on his birthday to scoop the history-breaking jackpot as his birthday present to himself! Some 481 other players pocketed some winnings from the total juicy prize pool of 1.3 million Euros. In fact, the runner up, Rick H, shouldn’t feel too hard done by with his tidy €50,000 prize.
After months of excitement and buzz amongst the online slot community, Microgaming has certainly staked its place in the history of online gaming by creating the first ever online slot tournament millionaire.
