About the Big Buck World Championship Event:
The Big Buck World Championship gathers the best players in the country to battle for over $50,000 in prize money with a top prize of $15,000. Beyond the big check and glory that comes with winning, it’s a hell of a party!
The fifth annual Big Buck World Championship has two major upgrades: 1) All game play including qualifying will be on the brand new Big Buck HD machines and 2) The World Championship live event will be held in New York City. If you’ve never been to the World Championship there’s no better time to start. If you’re a repeat guest, prepare to be blown away.
It all starts with a revamped Online Qualifying Tournament that runs September 1st – October 7th which can be played at any online Big Buck HD game machine across the country. The top 64 players (from 4 regions) will be invited to NYC for the 2-day World Championship Weekend on November 9th and 10th.
In addition to the main event we will continue the tradition that was started last year by holding the second annual Ladies Tournament. The ladies tournament has expanded to 32 players and the top prize has increased to $5,000 this year. NOTE TO ALL LADIES: You can compete in both the Ladies Tournament and the World Championship. Do yourself a favor and qualify for both to increase your chances of bringing home some big money. The qualifying tournament for the ladies will run during the same time as the World Championship qualifiers. They are separate tournaments so make sure to join both.
Friday, November 9th will play host to the World’s largest Big Buck Party with free drinks and food. In addition, the ladies will be battling it out for the top prize of $5,000 in a double elimination bracketed shootout (2 guns) tournament on Friday night. There will be lots of action as well as plenty of Big Buck HD games on free play for you to practice plus other arcade games for your enjoyment.
The 2012 World Championship Main Event will take place on Saturday, November 10th with the 64 best players in the country facing off against each other in a double elimination bracketed shootout (2 guns) tournament.
