After months of planning, Mattel’s inaugural official UNO Championship Series Vegas Invitational Tournament powered by Mobil 1 is on!
On November 11, esports superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins will get wild as he hosts the event live from the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas inside the Luxor Hotel & Casino. Former professional NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer, Olympic Gold Medalist Venus Williams, and singer Ashlee Simpson Ross are among the celebrity participants that will join in the fun as finalists compete for a grand prize of $50,000 and the honor of being crowned the first official UNO World Champion.
Finalists were selected from the nearly 2 million players that took part in more than 28 million digital matches in the UNO Mobil Tournament.
“The 50th anniversary of UNO has been nothing short of wild. We’ve introduced new products, cultivated new partnerships, and created new experiences to bring together fans from all over the world, and crowning the first official UNO World Champion is a perfect culmination,” says Ray Adler, global head of Mattel Games. “Seeing thousands of our passionate fans come together from across the globe over their love of UNO is a testament to the power of this simple and universal game that transcends languages and cultures.”
The culmination of UNO’s 50th anniversary celebration will stream live on the UNO TikTok channel beginning at 7pm PST.
