    Kevin may chime in, but I'm almost certain there's a cap. They say 175+ because they always expect some cancelations for the event, so they'll overbook it by some. The way it's setup there's no way they could do 'unlimited' entrants.

    If you have FP on top of the tournament entry it's always been less than 'normal' FP amounts. You're guaranteed some extra, plus there's a lot of extra cost for the free food and beverage they provide during the events

    I can't stand those types of tournaments. I understand why they do them, but I won't play in events like that.

    They know what they are doing they will get more players in the doors sincenits unlimited and a complimentary invite so they will take it all back on the machines on the floor

    Plus the chances of someone getting first place in all three rounds is very very highly unlikely so they're not going to be out a million dollars in tournament payouts

    Someone check my probability calculation, but if the tournament had 175 people, then your odds of getting the million are 175x175x175 = 1 in 5,359,375

    I don't have any attached to the tournament. I don't have any FP for my current standing offer (4 free nights 1 bedroom terrace) either so signing up for the tournament didn't leave anything on the table for me.

    That's a pretty big hit. Last year when I did the same tournament I was still getting FP with offers and what I got during the tournament was about half of my regular FP amount.

    Got my snail mail invite today. No FP. Includes 3 complimentary nights... is that standard for the tourney? Undecided if I will attend.

    That's what I received. If you play in the tournament you'll at least get some FP at the end. I think $150 is the amount you're guaranteed. Not sure how that compares to your normal FP amount, but that's only slightly less than is usually get on an offer for 3 nights from them.

    Thanks. It is only slightly less than usual. I've never participated in a slot tourney so I might just go for it. Cheers!

    I did it last year too. It was a good time. Lots of other degenerate gamblers to chat with, and nice snacks and free drinks up in the room the tournament takes place. They even had a DJ up there keeping things lively.

    Sounds fun! Anyone know if the Oct slot tournament would be the same type of event? It is the same dates I was already planning to go so sure hope to get an invite again.

    Hedged too long... tourney is now full (blacked out)
    Wasn't meant to be this time around.

    All the best to my fellow fanatics that are participating.

    That filled up early. Last year I don't think I even committed until mid April

    I was lucky enough to get in. Since they sent out that calendar of upcoming events, I'm guessing most people booked in advance of getting the offer.

    There are usually cancellations, so I'd keep checking closer to the tourney date to see if they can sneak you in. This tourney only really means anything when earning 25k points for the extra 3 minutes, so I'd think they'd want as many people as possible on the floor getting that coin-in.

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I'll check closer to the date.
