LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Lucky’s Lounge says it will host a Virtual Reality eSports tournament throughout the month of April for both seasoned gamers and VR newbies alike.

Throughout each match-up of the evening, contestants named up to 3rd place will be awarded gift cards, free slot play and other swag.

Gamers with the highest score will get the chance to participate in the official VR Arcade’s eSports tournament at a later date.
