He added that this tournament was remarkable because it offered a number of ways of winning for free and because it enabled players to come back week after week in quest of the big prizes.

The Jackpot Factory Group has won several awards and all its casinos are licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, powered by Microgaming and audited by eCOGRA.
