|July 22, 2005 (London, UK) – The world’s largest Solitaire tournament begins today, hosted by leading online skill gaming provider GameAccount (www.gameaccount.com). The £10,000 multicurrency cashpot will attract over 16,000 players from 130 countries to compete in 14 rounds of the popular card game Pyramid Panic.|
The unique tournament structure allows large numbers of players to participate, with minimum outlay and maximum chance of rewards. It costs only £1 to enter, you may re-enter as often as you like. The tournament offers bigger prizes with each round, and any player only needs to beat 14 opponents to win the Grand Prize.
According to Kevin O’Neal, Marketing Director at GameAccount, the SuperCash tournament is just the beginning of the company’s massive campaign to take the skill games market to unprecedented new levels.
“We intend to make remote skill gaming the ‘new poker,’” said Mr. O’Neal. “By the end of the year we plan to launch the first £100,000 skill gaming tournament, which will certainly generate tremendous attention and boost the position of skill games in the online sector.”
Skill gaming has been rapidly maturing in player size, revenues and cash prizes over the last 3 years; GameAccount alone paid out over £1 million in cash winnings last month. The pioneering skill gaming provider has reported that next generation games and knockout tournaments are increasing average stakes and lifetime customer value, thus greatly contributing to the booming online games market.
