From the middle of March all Microgaming online casinos have been agog with the qualifiers to the mega online tournament the Grand Slam of Slots II (GSOS II). The qualifiers have been freerolls, buy-in tournaments, lucky draws and a host of other promotions. Now, all the qualifiers are over. The winners have secured their seats to the GSOS II final, which is beginning on Friday May 27. The final will be played over 11 days on the online slot Thunderstruck II. It will end on Monday June 6.

A very attractive prize pool of $290,000 to be shared by the top 290 players on the leader board has been announced by Microgaming. The top player will get $100,000. The next two players will get $50,000 and $25,000 each. At the bottom of the prize pool players from the 126th to the 290th places will win $100 each. The software provider Microgaming has made it clear that this is only the guaranteed amount. The GSOS II is a rebuy tournament and the rebuys will add to the prize pool. At the end of the tournament the total collected prize pool will be shared in the same proportion as set out in the guaranteed prize pool. There is a bonus prize of $2.43 million in gold bullion. Thunderstruck II has 243 ways to win. The first player to receive payouts using all 243 ways will get this bonus. The gaming server will validate the win and be used as the one source of truth.

Microgaming has now put out the exact mechanics of the mega online tournament and all those who have qualified should understand it. Each player will be provided with 58,500 starting coins and 18 minutes of initial playtime. Each player will also be allowed an unlimited number of rebuys and up to 5 add-ons for each attempt. Each rebuy will cost $20 and will contribute to the prize pool. A rebuy will provide a player with 18 minutes of playtime and 58,500 coins. The most crucial rule is that after every rebuy the Thunderstruck II pay table achievements will be reset. This means that the player will have to win the 243 paylines from scratch. Each add-on will provide each player with an additional 8 minutes and 27,000 coins. An add-on will not contribute to the tournament prize pool and it will not reset the pay table achievements. When a player's coins or play time has been exhausted his score will be added to the leader board.

Some of the leading Microgaming online casino groups that are participating in the GSOS II are Fortune Lounge, Jackpot Factory, River Belle and Palace Group.
