August 22, 2005 (Vancouver, BC) – Popular international slots casino, Slotland.com, has called upon novice bowlers in Canada to play in its inaugural Super Bowl Novice Bowling Tournament, for the chance to win Slotland.com bowling sponsorship, $1,700 in prize money and thousands of dollars in vouchers for play at Slotland.com. Four bowling centres in and around Vancouver, BC, have agreed to host the Super Bowl tournament, which will run over a 2 month period starting in September.
Each bowler who enters the tournament automatically receives a voucher for $200 to be spent at Slotland.com. Winning teams in each of the qualifying House matches will win $300 and advance to the Super Bowl Championship where they’ll compete for the regional title, Slotland.com sponsorship, $300 Slotland.com voucher for each winning team player and an additional $500 Grand Prize. The tournament coordinators from bowling centres from Maple Ridge to Port Coquitlam believe that the prospect of Slotland.com’s sponsorship will draw many first-time competitors.
Slotland.com’s Super Bowl is designed to allow recreational bowlers to play in an official competition and win cash prizes, by stipulating that team members’ averages be less than 150 points per game. Super Bowl will adopt the popular Five-Pin format. Five-Pin is a fast, Canadian version of bowling invented in Toronto in the twenties when downtown office-workers took to bowling on their half-hour lunch breaks.
Novice bowler Marge Fairweather has been a bowling enthusiast for years but has never felt that she played to the standard to participate in regular bowling competitions.
“I absolutely enjoy bowling, so this is a way I can play, test my ability against other people at the same level, and ultimately win some cash!” said Ms Fairweather. “Even if I don’t win my local match or the major prize there is no harm done,” Ms Fairweather remarked.
Tammy Morin, the manager at Grandview Lanes said: “Novice bowling doesn’t usually get this kind of attention. Lots of our bowlers play slots too, so everyone thinks the association with Slotland.com is kind of cool.”
Slotland.com knows all about providing adrenalin-pumping entertainment and making dreams come true. The online casino witnesses happy customers everyday who take that much-deserved holiday or start their dream business because of their success at Slotland.com. Super Bowl aims to fulfil a dream of the novice, recreational bowler by giving away sponsorship, cash prizes and the chance to hone their bowling skills for future grand-scale tournaments.
Last winter, Slotland.com funded a Canadian curling team who had their sights set on Olympic gold. Slotland.com’s funding enabled the team to make it to more events on the Ontario Curling Tour and gain the tournament experience they needed. In a Sweep Magazine interview this winter, the team’s Skip, Gerry Guerts said: “We are all exceptionally happy with the end of season result, and the support of our title sponsor, Slotland.com, helped us get there. The 2004/2005 season was a success for everybody involved in the sponsorship.”
Hannah Morante, Marketing Manager at Slotland.com said it was the success of the curling team sponsorship that led to supporting another Novice sport. “We received lots of positive feedback for the curling team we sponsored. At Slotland.com, any one can win – we’re in the business of realising hopes and aspirations.”
