VIP Casino has been under the banner of Cryptologic for some time now and since it is operating under a license granted by Malta, it is actually one of the more trusted and reputable casinos out there. Good slots tournaments are hard to come by in general, but VIP Casino has had an excellent track record when it comes to creating tournaments that people really enjoy. They are attempting to go one further in that streak in March by taking two of their best slot machines and creating online slots tournaments based around those two machines.
According to VIP Casino, “good things come in pairs” and in the case of this particular tournament scheme the pair they are talking about are Millionaire’s Club and Bejeweled. Millionaire’s Club is an online slot machine that virtually all Cryptologic fans are aware of because of its excellence whereas Bejeweled is a slot machine that has been able to cash in on the popularity of the skill game of the same name in order to create an online slot machine sensation. Cryptologic is at their best when they create games like these and therefore it is fitting that in an attempt to extend their good slot machine tournament streak even further, VIP Casino chose to turn to the best and brightest weapons that it had in its arsenal.
The month started off with the Millionaire’s Club tournament which has been scheduled to go from March 1st through to March 15th. The entry fee for the tournament was $10, although the eventual winner of the tournament will get a chance to multiply that amount by fifty with the $500 grand prize that will be awarded on the 15th. The second place finisher will get $250 as their prize and the people that finished 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th will all be awarded a $50 prize for their efforts. The tournament format and prize structure will be exactly the same for the Bejeweled tournament which will begin on March 16th and continue through to the end of the month.
Overall, it looks as though VIP Casino has struck gold again with their tournaments this month. The Millionaire’s Club tournament has been quite popular and there is every reason to think that Bejeweled, which is the more popular of the two in cash game format, will be able to pick up any slack when the 16th of March rolls around.
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.
Cryptologic is one of the major online software developers for online casino solutions and in recent years they have started charting a course for themselves that has allowed them to develop a very unique way of looking at the online casino business. They decided to go the route of popularization in their online video slot machines, a move that was seen as a bit risky because of the large amount of licensing payments they would have to make before they even got started off the ground floor. However, the popularization movement has largely worked for Cryptologic, the most recent expression of that success being the awarding of best online slot machine to a King Kong themed slot machine that they had put into many of their online casinos.
In addition to that particular accolade however, the Cryptologic online casino software package was voted in as the best one for the 2008 calendar year, primarily because of its smooth running. However, there is speculation that their excellent selection of popularized online slot machines had something to do with the selection as well. In addition to King Kong, Cryptologic had obtained the licensing rights for some of the marvel superheroes as well such as Spiderman and The Hulk, both of which have been very popular in the pop culture of the modern day. In addition to that however, Cryptologic has also used these rights to create compelling online slot machines and that has earned them a flood of visitors, all of which want to play these particular games.
In a show of just how much faith they have in this particular strategy, the people at Cryptologic have decided to go a little farther with their popularization course and they are going to be doing that by reaching out to DC comics in the same way that they reached out to Marvel comics. DC superheroes include people like Superman and Batman and for that reason have their own share of memorable superheroes that people will be able to recognize instantly. Imagine an online slot machine line up from Cryptologic consisting of slot machines based on King Kong, Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk, Batman and Superman and it is quite easy to see why Cryptologic has pursued this expensive licensing and popularization course. At the end of the day, they expect it to pay off even bigger than it already has for them.
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.
It has often been said that a particular industry is not truly a tied together industry until there is a universally accepted series of awards for it. For this reason, it could very well be argued that the Global Online Casino Awards created by oggs.com was the one event that was needed to bring the online casinos of the world together. The Global Online Casino Awards in 2008 rewarded online casinos and online games for their excellence and one of their main categories was put there as a reward for excellent online slots that were created in the 2008 year.
When the nomination list for this particular award was released to the world, most of the online casino community believed that they knew who would be victorious and therefore it was no real big surprise to anyone knowledgeable in such things that the King Kong Slot Machine by Cryptologic ended up winning the honors of being the best amongst the online slots that were released in 2008. The main reason for this is that King Kong as a slot machine had one of the most remarkable bonus screens ever created and that screen alone was a testament to what an online casino designer can do when their theme is an interesting one and they decide to run with it all the way to its particular conclusion.
If the Global Online Casino Awards are going to become as inspiring as the awards that exist in other fields, one would have to say that King Kong being awarded this particular honor should be good from the point of view of the recognition. While that intangible feeling might require a few more iterations of the awards and a few more years because of that, there is a very real tangible bonus that comes with winning this particular award. That bonus, quite simply put, is that traffic to this particular game has increased significantly. People that have not played it before would like to play it now, even to the point where people are signing up for accounts at Cryptologic casinos they have never been to before in order to see King Kong as well as the other online slots they have available.
This is a good thing in the end because it promotes the idea that if online casinos put out a good product that is worthy of recognition, they will eventually receive some very real benefits because of it.
