Casino tournaments roundup - January 2010

7 replies • Last post

We're starting a little thing off this month which a couple of emailers requested - a summary of the best tournaments coming up each month. Here is what we think are the pick of the crop this month:

$100 @ English Harbour group (Vegas Tech)
Jan 1 - 31, $50000 1st prize, 275 prizes paid in total. USA players accepted.
Cool Winnings is a slots tournament played on the Winter Wonderland slot that runs all month at any casino in the English Harbour group (also includes Slots Galore, VIP Slots, Millionaire Casino). It costs $10 to enter and you only start with $100 in chips but the prize placings go deep so its often easy to profit even if you only make a small win.

$50 @ Go Casino / Online Vegas (Vegas Tech)
Every weekend, $15,000 first prize, 500 prizes paid in total. USA players accepted.
These tournaments are huge for freerolls. They are held every weekend this month, running from Saturday through to Tuesday nights. As is usually the case with these freerolls you'll only start with $80, but the top 500 places win prizes starting at $15 going all the way up to $15,000 for first place. Look out for the last one, starting Friday January 29, which has a bigger prize pool of $75,000.

The Slottery @ English Harbour group (Vegas Tech)
Weekly, 30% of pot 1st prize, 100 prizes paid in total. USA players accepted.
This is a pot-based slots tournament that runs every week, also at the English Harbour group. Buy-in is only $5 and for each buy-in and rebuy the pot grows. typically it reaches between $10,000 and $15,000, with 30% going to the winner.

$20 @ All Slots / Platinum Play / Jackpot City (Microgaming)
Every Weekend, $5500 first prize, 27 prizes in total. Only existing USA players allowed.
You can play this one at any Microgaming casino that supports tournaments (most of them). It costs $20 to enter and the top 27 players win prizes starting at $140 going up to a cool $5500 for first place. If you haven't played a Microgaming tournament before, check out our Microgaming casino tournaments guide which will help you maximise your chances of winning.

$5000 Weekend Blackjack Classic @ English Harbour group (Vegas Tech)
Every Weekend, $1500 1st prize, 50 prizes paid in total. USA players accepted.
Still the best "stack-building" blackjack tournament around (as opposed to the player vs player elimination tourneys). Start with $75 and see how big you can build your stack (my best is over $8000). Entry is $10.

$1000 Casino War freeroll @ VIP Casino (Cryptologic)
Jan 1 - 15, $400 first prize, 22 winners in total. USA players not allowed.

$1000 Sweet Thing freeroll @ VIP Casino (Cryptologic)
Jan 16 - 31, $400 first prize, 22 winners in total. USA players not allowed.

Yes we'll be doing it each month.

The weird thing is I registered for the VIP Casino tournament and it wouldn't let me play. It kept popping up saying this game is unavailable in your country. I have played their tournaments for years and definitely played Casino War so I don't know what was up with that.

btw the VIP Casino freeroll is still going for another day or 2 so it isn't too late to enter as each person only gets a maximum 30 minutes playtime. Also they are having another starting Jan 16 so I added it above:

$1000 Sweet Thing freeroll @ VIP Casino (Cryptologic)
Jan 16 - 31, $400 first prize, 22 winners in total. USA players not allowed.

How did you go? I busted out real quick. You've got to go max bet and hope you hit something almost straight away when playing these freerolls. VIP has another two this month too.
