The big slot tourney, at a glance

Starting on Wednesday, NJ online casino users have a chance to play their way to Nevada and a shot at a huge prize.

The Millionaire Maker promotion is running at the Caesars online casino throughout January. Five lucky winners at the site will win a seat into the live slot tournament that will be held at Harrah’s Reno Hotel and Casino in April.

That tournament will award a top prize of a million dollars.

“We hope this is the year that a player takes home the top Millionaire Maker prize,” said Melanie Gross, Head of Online Casino for Caesars Interactive Entertainment. “Our players love being able to qualify for this iconic event by playing the online casino games they love.  With our robust suite of casino offerings and more than 100 new game titles since our last qualifier, the fun and excitement is truly just a click away.”

How to get into the Millionaire Maker

Getting a shot at making it to Reno is really simple. Just log into your account at Caesars and click “claim” on the Millionaire Maker opt-in entry under “My Bonuses.”

From there, all you have to do is start playing. Players earn entries based on their play, with more active players increasing their chances to win by being awarded additional drawing entries. All game types are eligible for the promotion.

On Mondays throughout January (Jan. 16, 23 and 30), players can earn double entries. A slot race scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 18, will allow players to earn bonus entries.

Caesars is the only way to win your way into this tournament via online casino play.
