Who knew? Dominos can mean big money! Hundreds of Domino enthusiasts and thousands of spectators from around the United States will gather in Las Vegas this fall for the chance to win a share of $50,000 in cash and prizes and the prestigious title of Universal Domino League Champion.
Held Nov. 25 and 26 at Green Valley Ranch Resort, UDL Fall Classic Tournament will feature more than 350 players and over $50,000 in cash and prizes. It will also be attempting to set the Guinness World Record for Most People Playing in a Domino Tournament.
“We’re thrilled to bring the record-breaking Fall Classic Domino Tournament to the Las Vegas valley this fall,” said Harold Moret, founder of the Universal Domino League. “The tournament will not only provide dominos enthusiasts the chance to compete against the country’s best players, but also provide a safe and fun environment for the sport of competitive dominos.”
The UDL and its world-renowned players compete in 10 head-to-head, action-packed, double-elimination rounds. Each match will be a best-of-five up to 150 points, with the last contestant standing named the champion.
More than 1,000 spectators will be in attendance to witness this new phenomenon, with 350 players competing for cash and prizes, including a 2018 Dodge Challenger. Registration begins at 3 p.m., Nov. 24, with the tournament kicking off the next day at 9 a.m. inside the Estancia Ballroom at GVR.
