    Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas will host QubicaAMF's classic event for the second time in the tournament's 51-year history. The tournament will take place from November 13-20, 2015.

    "A warm Las Vegas welcome is awaiting all our bowlers and guests this November," said John Sou, Sam's Town Vice President and General Manager. "We are excited to welcome back this great event." Sam's Town will also serve as the official tournament headquarters.

    The 56-lane center will be showcasing QubicaAMF's BES X Scoring and Management System, the world's only Bowling Entertainment System. BES X is designed to provide exciting competitive play at any level and uniquely allows bowlers to review their game statistics on-lane, live and on-demand directly from the SuperTouch LCD bowler console.

    During the tournament, through BES X, fans will also be able to keep up with their favorite bowlers with live online scoring. People can view scores in real time, see what lanes bowlers are bowling on and their standing at any given moment. Fans can even stay connected with their favorite bowlers through the unique Facebook feature.

    "It gives me great pleasure to usher in the next 50 years of the Bowling World Cup at Sam's Town, QubicaAMF President, Juan Cabezas said.

    "My colleagues have told me about the great tournament that was held here in 1999, and I know that the team at Sam's Town will do a terrific job for us this year. I am looking forward to Las Vegas in November!"

    "We think the selection of Las Vegas as host city will generate great excitement and interest in this year's Bowling World Cup," said tournament organizer Anne-Marie Board.

    "Not only is Las Vegas one of the premier vacation cities in the world, but it's also a great bowling town, hosting a variety of bowling championships each year. It's quite possible that we'll top the record of 95 countries that participated in the 2004 Bowling World Cup in Singapore."

    Last year's tournament in Wroclaw, Poland, attracted bowlers from 85 nations. The champions were Clara Juliana Guerrero of Colombia and Chris Barnes of the United States.
