Gamers to gather at Bally’s for ‘Mortal Kombat 9’ tournament

Fancy yourself a Mortal Kombat junkie? Then be at Bally’s on May 14 & 15.


Mortal Combat 9 National Tournament
May 14-15
Bally's Las Vegas
Beyond the Weekly

If you’ve seen the documentary The King of Kong, you know: Videogame competition is just as fierce as any contact sport. So imagine the brutality when the game at issue isn’t based around a pissy gorilla but a rabid desire to beat your opponent into a blood-soaked, lifeless stump. Sounds fun, right? Nearly 20 years after the first ninjas and warriors launched into a dizzying series of kicks, punches, flips and fatalities, Mortal Kombat 9 is bringing quick-thumbed competitors from across the country to compete in a national tournament May 14-15 at Bally’s. Sign up online at through May 9 for a chance to take home $10,000 in cash and, perhaps more importantly, the ultimate beatdown bragging rights. Finish them!
