Following that, on April 2nd and 23rd, Shanshy Beach Bar, Port Antonio and Smart Choice Jerk Center, Negril will host the tournament.

Gary Peart, the executive chairman of SVL, asserted that “The top sixteen players from each community tournament will receive automatic qualification to the National Championship of Jamaica Finals on June 11, 2023,”
“We want to remind participants that upon purchasing their tickets, they must visit the official tournament website svldomino.com to register and be added to the database. On the day of the finals, all they need to do is to turn up at the National Arena, check-in and play. That also goes for all the tournaments prior to the finals.”
The 1st place winner at the National Finals will walk away with a whopping $1,000,000, while 2nd place will walk away with $750,000. 3rd and 4th place qualifiers will receive a total of $600,000 and $400,000 each.
The 5th-16th place will get a sum of $100,000 and the 17th-64th will receive $15,000 each. At the community level, all qualifiers will receive prize money for their participation.

In addition to the tournaments, the Supreme Ventures team has partnered with the National Blood Transfusion Service, to facilitate blood donations at all community tournament venues, as well as at the National Arena for the finals.
Each person who successfully donates blood will have the opportunity to be entered for a chance to be one of 10 winners of $10,000 each.
“We have established a very tight-knit bond with the Blood Bank and so, we are happy to have them on board for this initiative. We are aware that they are facing a shortage of blood supply, therefore, we had to make it a priority to figure out how best we could assist in getting persons to donate.” stated Heather Goldson, Supreme Ventures Foundation Director.
Supreme Ventures Limited looks forward to the growth of domino from just a household hobby, to maximizing its true potential as a professionally recognized sport. The Company urges participants and supporters to come out early to be a part of history.
