On Saturday afternoon, October 12 Benoni’s George Thomas showed he is a boss at playing slots when he won this year’s Peermont Reel Deal Slots Tournament at Emperors Palace. After claiming six of the ten finalists spots available to Emperors Palace players in last week’s semi-finals he showed it was no fluke as he took the R500 000 (R250 000 in cash and R250 000 in FreePlay) first prize in Saturday’s final as well as R20 000 (R10 000 in cash and R10 000 in FreePlay) for finishing in fifth spot and R10 000 (R5 000 in cash and R5 000 in FreePlay) for also coming ninth.
