BetRivers has announced the launch of its Michigan Million online slot tournament as it seeks to increase its market visibility in the state.
Offering a share of $1m in guaranteed bonus money, BetRivers Michigan Million rewards players with tournament points for each spin they make on selected slot titles.
Throughout April, players will be able to accrue points, with ten finalists selected to play the Cash Machine title via an online event to win a $100,000 bonus money grand prize.
“BetRivers is known for bringing first-of-its kind online casino experiences to our customers and we couldn’t be more excited to launch Michigan’s most exciting online slot tournament ever,” said Richard Schwartz, CEO of RSI, which operates BetRivers.com.
“With BetRivers Michigan Million, you get all the excitement of a real-world slot tournament, and the chance to win part of $1m in guaranteed bonus money, from the comfort of home.”
Open to those aged 21 and over who are physically in Michigan, the tournament can be entered by making a single $50 deposit using a special code during the month of April.
The semi-final, comprising the top 400 qualifying players, will take place on May 5-6. The top 10 will then move on to the final whilst those who do not will receive $1,500 in bonus money.
The final round will take place on May 5 and each player will have unlimited spins, with the winner taking $100,000. The nine other finalists will pocket $35,000 in bonus money.
Local radio host John Mason, who was the first person to place a legal bet on BetRivers in Michigan, will join BetRivers throughout the tournament.
Mason commented: “Players in Michigan have never seen a slot tournament like this before. I’ve been connected to the brand since the launch and am thrilled to be part of the BetRivers Michigan Million Online Slot Tournament.
“I can’t wait to see 400 Michiganders win their share of the $1m bonus money prize pool.”
