The event also earned a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS achievement for most slot machines running the same game simultaneously at the same venue. During the duration of the tournament, all participants played Bally’s Hot Shot® Blazing 7s™ as part of DM Tournaments™.
With Bally’s iVIEW DM and DM Tournaments, any machine with the technology installed, anywhere on the floor, can be turned into a tournament slot and then turned back to normal game play mode right afterwards. The technology enables casino operators to remove under-performing games from the floor, rather than retaining them just for tournaments. During The World’s Largest Slot Tournament, Pechanga switched more than 1,000 games from normal playing mode to tournament and back within a few minutes.
Pechanga has more than 1,100 machines that utilize Bally Technologies’ iVIEW DM and Elite Bonusing Suite, which enables powerful, casino-wide promotions, including tournaments, to be run with all players competing against each other. For the past year, the casino has delivered other promotions enabled by Bally’s technology, including free DM Tournaments with hundreds of players and a virtual horse racing-event, the Pechanga Classic, a Virtual Racing™ promotional event where each player chooses a horse to bet on and watches the race unfold on the in-game screen.
