Casino tournaments schedule added

Just a quick update to let you know that we have added an online casino tournaments page where you can keep track of current and upcoming casino tournaments. Casino tournaments can be a good way of having a fun time without risking much of your bankroll. Most cost around $10 or less to enter, and some are even free.

How do they work? It is pretty simple. You join the tournament and are given a stack of chips to play a specific game with. Your mission is to build the highest chip stack before the tournament ends. One of the reasons I like playing tournaments is I get to try a variety of different games that I would not necessarily want to risk my own bankroll with. And of course you get the thrill of betting big without actually risking a whole wad of cash.

We list the tournaments in order of their finishing time by default, but as usual our list pages are fully sortable on most of the information. Anything ending within 12 hours is marked in red so that you don't miss out.

I've hand picked a couple of good tournaments to get you started:

  • Littlewoods Casino has a free tournament on the Amazing Spiderman Slot this month (March 2008), with a huge £1000 first prize, £500 for second, and £250 each to the next eight places. So get in there and give it a go - you have nothing to lose (unfortunately this one is unavailable to our friends in the USA).
  • The English Harbour Group (including Super Slots, Caribbean Gold, Silver Dollar, and Millionaire casinos) has a smorgasbord to choose from - daily tournaments for blackjack, casino hold'em, slots, and video poker costing only $5 each, a daily slots freeroll, and coming up to celebrate St Patrick's Day, they have a $75000 prize pool for a tournament on The Reel Deal Slot machine, with the winner taking away $10000. Not bad for a $10 entry fee, and all are open to USA players.
  • And finally, for non-US players, some of my favourite tournaments are played at the Cryptologic casinos each month. So remember to take a look at what Playboy, Intercasino, Littlewoods, and VIP casino have to offer each month.

One final thing to note is that there a a few casinos which offer "tournaments" where the winners are determined by whoever accumulates the most comp points during in a certain time. This is just another way of saying that whoever wagers the most money during the tournament time limit wins. We won't be listing any of these, as it is merely a shameless attempt to get you to gamble more in the hope you will bust your bankroll.

So check out our online casino tournaments list and try your luck.
Best of luck at the casino.
