Massive prize money increase in Tsogo Sun Roulette Masters Tournament

The stakes have been raised in the ultimate roulette tournament. Tsogo Sun’s Roulette Masters Tournament now has an increased first prize of a staggering R2.5 Million (from R2 Million), with the total pool prize now over R4.4 Million (up from R3.1 Million). Players only have a few weeks left to be part of the thrill and win big.

“The exhilarating tournament has once again been met with enthusiasm and massive participation. With this increase in prize money, there’s even more reason to enter! This is testament that the tournament is one of the most popular gaming experiences at Tsogo Sun”, says Steve Hight, Tsogo Sun’s Director of Gaming.

The Roulette Masters qualifying rounds are still underway across all 14 Tsogo Sun casinos, until 09 March 2017. With a buy-in of only R100, this makes the tournament affordable for everyone to stake their claim of the prize. 

Qualifying rounds are currently underway at the respective casinos – Montecasino, Gold Reef City and Silverstar in Gauteng; SunCoast, Golden Horse and Blackrock in KZN; The Caledon, Garden Route and Mykonos in the Western Cape; Emnotweni and The Ridge in Mpumalanga; Hemingway’s and Queens Casino in the Eastern Cape; and Goldfields in the Free State.

For eight weeks, players will be able to take part in the Roulette Masters tournament for a place in the grand finals. The unit finals will take place on 11 March 2017, followed by the group semi-finals and grand finale at Gold Reef City on 25 March 2017.

Adds Hight, “The guaranteed increased prize money has upped the ante for the participants. It’s going to be a nail-biting showdown.”
