BetRivers Debuts Michigan Million Online Slot Tournament

Michigan bettors have the chance to win their share of $1 million in bonus money by participating in the newly released BetRivers Michigan Million™ Online Slot Tournament.

By entering the tournament, players can compete to earn tournament points and climb the real-time leaderboard for an opportunity to qualify for the grand prize.

BetRivers Launches Michigan Million Online Slot Tournament

BetRivers Michigan is inviting players to take part in the Cash Machine slot game for a chance to win their share of the $1 million in prize money. The promotion is open to those 21 and older and physically present in Michigan.

The tournament features three rounds of action, with the first qualifying round extending through April. The 400 players positioned high enough by the end of the first round will move on to compete in the semi-finals and are all guaranteed a share of the winnings.

Parent company Rush Street Interactive, Inc. offers its online brands BetRivers, PlaySugarHouse and RushBet in 15 U.S. states as well as Canada, Colombia and Mexico. Moreover, RSI boasts some of the most popular online casino games and sports betting options available. As one of the fastest-growing companies in the industry, it looks to further expand its reach with this new slot tournament.

CEO Richard Schwartz said RSI is eager for the launch of the tournament:

“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. With BetRivers Michigan Million, you get all the excitement of a real-world slot tournament, and the chance to win part of $1 million in guaranteed bonus money, from the comfort of home.”

Qualifying Round

To qualify for a chance at $1 million in bonus money, Michigan players must simply visit the BetRivers app any time from April 1-30 to register. Michigan users will automatically qualify for this promo by using the code “Million” and making a single deposit of $50 or more into their account.

BetRivers will then reward eligible users with 100 Tournament Spins to use anytime from now until April 30. Players will also be able to earn additional spins during that period.

At the end of this qualifying round on April 30, the top 400 players on the Tournament Leaderboard will advance to the Semi-Final Round.

Semi-Final Round

The qualifying round will reduce the playing field to 400 competitors come May. BetRivers will then deposit 200 Tournament Spins into those qualifying player accounts to be used between May 5 and 6. By the end of that round, the top 10 players on the Tournament Leaderboard will advance to the Final Round.

Each semi-finalist who doesn’t move on isn’t entirely out of luck. BetRivers will award $1,500 in bonus money to each of the 390 unlucky participants who don’t advance.

Final Round

Once the semi-finals end, the tournament field reduces to 10 players. These finalists then compete for the $100,000 grand prize by playing the Cash Machine slot game during a live online event on Monday, May 15.

Each finalist is granted unlimited spins to use as they see fit during this 10-minute live online event.

The player standing at the top of the Tournament Leaderboard at the end wins the $100,000 grand prize bonus money. Meanwhile, the nine runner-up participants will receive $35,000 in bonus money from BetRivers.

Host John Mason serves as face of BetRivers slot tournament

Radio host and Detroit Pistons announcer John Mason will serve as the hype man for this promotion. Mason was the first bettor to place a legal wager at BetRivers when the app first launched in Michigan and has been associated with the brand ever since.

Mason said:

“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$1 millionbonus money prize pool.”
