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.
