An Amazing Slots Race @TsogoSun @SilverstarZA to be Winners!

Hi Guys,

It’s an amazing race to the slots! Tsogo Sun launched its third annual increasingly-popular Slots Factor tournament with an Amazing Slots Race for media and celebrities on 23 July at Silverstar Casino. With a healthy dose of excitement, teamwork, quick thinking, tough competition, and prowess, thee event saw the six teams battling it out for great prizes and the fabulous prestige of winning. I was in Team Black and really enjoyed my journey towards the finish line which was well planned with series of tasks and activities to do.

The Tsogo Sun Slots Factor heats are currently underway and run for eight weeks from 20 July to 13 September across Tsogo Sun’s 14 casinos around the country, offering a record total of R2,4 million in cash and Freeplay, which includes a guaranteed first prize of R1 million in cash, and many other prizes. Do try your luck in the same and may be you can earn a fortune in this lifetime!

“Our Slots Factor tournament, which is a highlight on our Tsogo Sun gaming calendar, always raises the excitement levels in our casinos by several notches – for the entire eight weeks that it runs,” explains Steve Hight, Tsogo Sun’s Director of Gaming. “This year we decided we would add even more fun to the mix by hosting an Amazing Slots Race for a selection of our country’s media, bloggers, and celebrities. Not only was this race a great experience for the participants, exposing them to the new entertainment offerings at Silverstar, it also gave their followers on Twitter and Instagram an opportunity to get involved by giving them encouragement on social media.”

The Amazing Racers met at Montecasino where they were divided into their colour-coded teams and driven to Silverstar casino in Amazing Slots Race branded vehicles. After introductions and explanations, the race was on!

Each team had to visit four pit stops, two roadblocks, and a detour – all of which took in several of the precinct’s entertainment and food offerings – quickly completing the challenges along the route. Throughout the race, they were required to Tweet and Instagram their achievements and progress. The pitstops and roadblocks were really hard as well as great on entertainment. It really required a lot of effort to complete the same and we really enjoyed all the activities as a black team.

At the end of the Amazing Slots Race was the final challenge. Each team had to earn a R100 Slots Factor note during the race, which was used as the buy-in for a special Slots Factor tournament. After some heated action at the slot machines it was on to the prize-giving, where the Orange team won the prize for crossing the finishing line first, winning a Montecasino experience each. The second element of the competition – the Slots Factor tournament – was won by Team Red, who won R20 000 in cash.

My team (Black) was just short of 49 points from the Team Red in Slot Factor and we lost the game by a narrow margin. I could not score as much as my fellow team mates and we lost the game at the slots. But we won the best Team Spirit award which included a 2-night stay at Silvestar Casino in the Presedential Suite for a family. I am going to book the same asap and enjoy a holiday during Aug/Sep. 

Meanwhile, the excitement of the Slots Factor has just begun; the tournament runs from 20 July through to the finals at each casino that will take place on 19 September and the grand group final, taking place at Suncoast on 25 and 26 September.

A buy-in price of R100 cash makes the tournament accessible to everyone and entitles the participant to one entry into the tournament. Every cent of the buy-insacross the 14 casinos contributes to the final prize money, which means it could increase by the time the finals are held. This year Tsogo Sun is allowing packaged buy-ins, which include R200 for two tournament entries and R50 in Casino FreePlay, and R500 for five tournament entries and R150 in Casino FreePlay, valid for the day of play only.

New to the tournament this year is that the participant obtaining the highest score from a single buy-in or heat at each casino over the eight-week period will qualify for the grand finals at Suncoast without having to play off in the individual casino finals. Casino Free Play prizes will also be awarded to the top daily credit earners in the tournament to add to the fun and excitement on the floor and to keep the action constantly lively.

“Our Amazing Slots Race event kicked off this tournament in great style, setting the standard for the memorable experiences and thrills for players and spectators throughout the tournament,” says Hight. “After all, both the tournament and the race offer that special element that people find so appealing. Congratulations to all our intrepid Amazing Racers on making it through the challenging track at Silverstar.” Tsogo Sun’s portfolio includes over 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations throughout South Africa, Africa, the Seychelles and Abu Dhabi.
