The Cosmopolitan has been trying a lot of tactics to draw both local and tourist gamblers into their casino. On the surface it doesn’t look like it’s working but their casino revenue has been increasing just about each quarter for the past year.
This $1 million tournament for Identity players club members is their latest tactic to draw playing into the casino a couple of times in the next year. I guess you should consider yourself lucky if you’re invited. Here are the details.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is sending Identity Members on a million dollar adventure with the launch of Million Dollar Slot Series, a five-distinct tournament series that culminate in a life-changing reward.
Far from a traditional slot tournament, Million Dollar Slot Series sweeps players away to a luxury lounge setting set inside one of the resort’s spacious event spaces. Each series features a unique theme and specially curated cocktails to match, kickoff parties and awards, live entertainment and open bar to create an unparalleled experience that is a recurrence at The Cosmopolitan. The series also boasts higher odds of winning, as each tournament is limited to a maximum of 100 participants but with as few as 40 players.
Identity Members can secure a seat in the Million Dollar Slot Series by entering into drawings using Identity Points accrued while playing their favorite slot and table games during a specified earning period, or by being the top point earner during a period.
Earning periods will take place weekly starting July 1 while drawings will take place monthly. Members can qualify for the $500,000 Grand Finale event by winning a qualifying event, being selected during a monthly drawing, becoming the top point earner any single month, or by buying in for $10,000.
Million Dollar Slot Series also offers players the opportunity to win up to an additional $500,000 cash. Players will be awarded points based on their placement in each of the four qualifying tournaments. In May 2015, points will be totaled and the Identity Member with the top score will walk away with cash bonuses that could total up to $500,000.
