Last week the Microgaming powered Fortune Lounge group of online casino became the first to announce qualifiers to the Grand Slam of Slots II tournament. Now two other popular online casino groups have announced qualifying tournaments for their players. Over the coming weeks most if not all Microgaming online casinos will join in. The Grand Slam of Slots II is scheduled to take place from May 27 to June 6.

The Jackpot Factory group having brands like All Slots online casino and All Jackpots online casino has also made an announcement from its licensing jurisdiction of Kahnawake in Quebec. The group will be awarding seats to the incredible Grand Slam of Slots II event through its free-entry qualifier slot tournaments beginning March 14. David Brickman, Jackpot Factory group's Vice President for Player Affairs, said, "We would love to see one of our players take home $2.43 million in gold, and are proud to offer our players the opportunity to win such an amazing prize. Thunderstruck II is a remarkable game, and was an instant hit when it launched at the casino in May 2010. I'm sure it will be a thrilling addition to our slot tournaments line-up." Thunderstruck II is the slot game on which the mega online tournament will be played.

The other Microgaming online group to announce qualifiers was the Palace group. The leading brand of this group is Spin Palace online casino. Mummy's Gold online casino is another brand of this group. The announcement from the Palace group in its newsletter reads, "The Grand Slam of Slots is back! Battle your way to victory at our exclusive slot extravaganza and big winnings could be yours. But take note, money can't buy you entry into this exciting tournament; win your way into the game by taking part in our special qualifying tournaments and other lucrative competitions. Look out for details coming your way soon."

Both announcements pointed out that the prize pool for the Grand Slam of Slots II starts at a whopping $360,000 and the more players take part, the bigger this prize pool will grow. There is a bonus prize of $2.43 million in Gold Bullion. This is not a randomly chosen odd amount. Thunderstruck II is a 243 ways to win slot game and that is the reason for the $2.43 million prize.

The first edition of the Grand Slam of slots was held in 2009 from October 22 to November 2. It was played on Tomb Raider, which is another landmark Microgaming online slot game. The first place winner received a prize of €1million. It was the first tournament in the history of online gaming to offer a top prize of a million. 481 other players shared the remainder of the €1.3 million prize pool.
