|Amateur bowling tournaments across western Canada sponsored by Slotland.com are introducing primarily elderly novice bowlers to the thrill of competing for real money. The bowlers, most of who have never bowled for cash prizes, bear a resemblance to a casino full of slots players. The total cash prize of nearly $4,000 that Slotland.com has provided gives the entrants the same thrill gamblers feel when there’s money to be won. |
“A lot of novice players in our regular leagues are seniors,” said Ken Hayden, Manager of Varsity Lanes in Vancouver. “And most of them also love to play the slots. So the $200 bonus that Slotland.com gives to every contestant has nudged a lot of seniors to take their first shot at winning some real money.”
Slotland.com has provided cash prizes and promotional assistance for amateur bowling tournaments in two large western Canadian cities, Vancouver, BC and Winnipeg, Manitoba. Winners of the four preliminary matches being played in each city win $300 and advance to the Championship Playoff in their city where Slotland.com is providing Grand Prizes. By setting qualifying averages low, the Slotland.com tournaments are designed for amateur bowlers to get their first taste of competition.
