InterCasino is an operation that was initially created by Cryptologic and holds the title of being the first online casino to be fully functional within the history of the online gambling industry. That having been said, it is really the fast pace at which InterCasino comes up with new ideas that keeps people coming back to play there month after month and March 2009 is no exception to this rule as it will bear witness to three specialty tournaments during the month of March.
The first tournament has already started and is scheduled to end on March 10th. It is a tournament that is based on the Street Fighter slot machine, one of the most popular online slot machines to ever be created. The entry fee for this particular tournament is $10, with the $500 prize pool being split into $250, $100 and $25 prizes for places one, two and three through eight respectively.
Once that tournament ends on the 10th, it will hand the reigns over to the St. Patrick’s Day themed tournament that will occupy the middle of the month of March. It will run until the 17th of March and therefore culminate in a big celebration of St. Patrick’s Day through awarding the prizes that are won. In order to honor this particular day however, InterCasino is going into their vault and pulling out one of their most treasured games and that is the Luck of the Irish online video slot machine. This is different from Luck O’ the Irish, an online video slot machine with a similar theme but created by a different source.
Finally, March 18th will see the commencement of the final tournament in the month of March and the third tournament in the month will run to the end of it. InterCasino has one of the most popular casino poker games around in Multi-Player Texas Hold ‘Em Bonus Poker and that is the game that will be on display at InterCasino races towards the end of the month with what will likely by then already be a successful campaign for the third month of the year.
Players that are interested in getting in on the action should start their scoping now as there are likely going to be a number of players interested in playing these three tournaments. While InterCasino has not stipulated an entrance limit, chances are very good that their servers will not be able to handle as many players as might want to play in one of the three tournaments.
February 2009 appears to be a month of rarity all around the world. There are many rare events that are taking place this month both in the online and offline communities, but within the online casino realm there are many impressive rare tournaments taking place all over the net. VIP Casino, a Cryptologic powered casino, is leading the way with tournaments in two different table games that are promotional for the month of February.
Now, if a person that was familiar with online casinos and the tournaments they usually run was told that two table games would be featured in VIP Casino tournaments this month, chances are pretty good that they would guess that the two games in question are blackjack and roulette. The main reason for this is that the vast majority of table game tournaments in online casinos are blackjack tournaments and when you add blackjack and roulette together, they account for almost every tournament at online casinos that deals with table games.
However, VIP Casino has decided to move off the beaten track slightly and be a little bit different this time around. VIP Casino is making their February table game tournaments in craps and baccarat, both of which are popular games at online casinos in cash game format but which have not been created in tournament format that often in recent memory. While VIP Casino is offering these tournaments as a one time promotion, it is quite possible that these same tournaments might end up sparking a further array of table game tournaments at online casinos should the results and the interest from these two tournaments prove them to be a smash hit. In other words, VIP Casino executives will keep a close eye on enrolment numbers and reception to see what future potential online casino tournaments in non-blackjack table games might be.
The tournament itself is quite a simple one in format terms. A person pays $10 in order to get into the tournament and then plays against other entrees into the tournament to see who can obtain the best result against the craps table or baccarat table. At the end of the tournament, the winner will receive $500, second place will receive $250 and places three through seven will each receive $50. It is a simple, yet effective format and VIP Casino deserves credit for utilizing it in an attempt to drum up interest in its February table game tournaments.
