Quickspin runs first network tournament of the year – Quickspin Festival
Stockholm, April 16th, 2019 – Swedish slot specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, is launching their first network tournament of the year at the end of May – Quickspin Festival.
The network tournament will allow players to participate in both Quickspin Tournaments and Quickspin Challenges, two of the company’s outstanding gamification tools, by playing their classic slots Big Bad Wolf, Sticky Bandits and Sakura Fortune, as well as their more recent games Eastern Emeralds and Tiger’s Glory from 2018.
The total win of €50,000 will be sponsored by Quickspin and divided up into a €40,000 raffle on Tournaments and a €10,000 raffle on Challenges. The event will take place from Tuesday the 28thof May until Sunday the 2ndof June 2019. For an operator to participate, they need to run at least three Challenges of their choice during Q2, and these Challenges must be set up in the UBO before the Quickspin Festival starts.
Quickspin Tournaments has been a proven success with operators. When running a Tournament, Betsson’s Swedish market saw a 6-fold increase in turnover and game win, and another leading operator more than doubled their GGR compared to the same period the month before.
Paul Myatt, Chief Commercial Officer at Quickspin, said: “We ran our first ever network tournament just after we’d launched Tournaments at the end of summer last year, and the results were fantastic! A lot has happened since then though, as Tournaments is now even better, plus we’ve also released Challenges. We’re so happy that the gamification tools in our Quickspin Promote catalogue has proved to add value for everyone involved: for us, for the operators, and above all, for the players. At the end of May, we would like to celebrate this amazing success by sponsoring a network tournament with €50,000! This promo is open to all Quickspin casinos so please contact your Account Manger to get involved.”
