Tournaments

Packaged Play – Gaming tournaments are a fun way to play casino games. They can offer everything from thousands of dollars in cash prizes with complete room/meals package getaways, to a simple 10-minute competition against a machine. In any case, they add the elements of designated scheduled playing time, competition and often, camaraderie to the gaming mix. The following pages provide information on the tournaments scheduled at Laughlin casinos for the next few months.
