Roulette Knockout tournament at Montecasino
Montecasino is once again playing host to the Tsogo Sun Roulette Knockout tournament, which launched with great success last year at the group’s three Gauteng casinos – Montecasino, Gold Reef City and Silverstar.
The Roulette Knockout tournament offers a total cash prize of R500 000, with R250 000 for first place, and runs from 7 September through to the semi-finals and the grand final at Silverstar Casino on 24 October.
“Roulette is a popular game of chance at Montecasino,” says Montecasino General Manager Glenn Joseph. “This tournament adds even more to the fun and excitement of the experience for our players. Last year our players were delighted with the low buy-in of R100 and came back again and again to try their luck at the roulette tables. I’ve no doubt that this year will see even more players setting their sights on the big cash prizes.”
In the Roulette Knockout competition, R10 table limits apply to all heats, with R200 maximum on the number, R100 minimum on outside chances in multiples of R100, R5 000 maximum on even money chances and R2 500 on columns and dozens, and no call bets will be accepted.
In the qualifying rounds, a maximum of five players at a time will constitute a heat, with a minimum of one player. Players will be given three spins and must play every spin. The value of the chips of the individual players at the end of the spins will determine whose names go up on the leader board. At the end of the qualifying period, the top 10 players from each property with the highest chip winnings from a single buy-in will qualify for a place in the grand finals – and will win R5 000 for first place, R2 000 for second to seventh places, and R1 000 for eighth to tenth places.
These 30 finalists will then play in the semi-finals at Silverstar, with the top seven earners winning a seat in the grand final round, which will consist of seven spins. The top seven scores will be announced when the last heat has been played and the overall winner will be the player with the highest total value of chips at the end of the seven spins.
“Knockout tournaments deliver nail-biting entertainment for both players and spectators – and this Roulette Knockout will keep adrenalin levels high through to the very end as the stakes get higher. We’re looking forward to welcoming potential Roulette Knockout champions to Montecasino and wish every one of them the best of luck!” adds Joseph.
