VIP Casino is well known for offering tournaments in card and table online casino games. It has announced a tournament in craps this month. One of the pleasures of the game of craps in land casinos is that players participate by rolling the dice themselves. At VIP Casino the online game of craps offers players this facility as well. If the player opts to roll the dice a long view of the entire table appears on the screen and the player’s hand picks up the two dice and bounces them off the wall at the opposite end.

The online craps tournament at VIP Casino has already commenced on June 1. But since it will run till June 15 there is plenty of time available for participation. The tournament has a modest entry fee of $10 and a prize pool of $1,000. The winner will get the lion’s share of the prize pool, amounting to $500. The player in the second place will get $250. The prizes go up to the seventh place with the remaining five winners getting $50 each. Participation in the tournament is a simple affair. Players first have to select "Game menu" from the left hand menu in the software and then select "Tournaments". Finally they click on the "Sign up now" button and select "yes". Players should note that the tournament fee will automatically be deducted when they sign up. One of the outstanding features of this online craps tournament is that players need not play their time in one stretch. They can exit from the tournament in between and later reenter and complete it. However they should follow the specified procedure. Wagering at craps outside of the tournament will not count for the purposes of the tournament.

The online craps tournament procedure is described in the Terms and Conditions and players should read it before signing up. On joining the tournament players will automatically be allocated $1,000 worth of chips. This is play money and cannot be cashed. Only the prize money is real. Players will be given 30 minutes to play and increase their chip balance to the maximum extent possible. Players have complete control over the time allotment. As stated earlier they do not have to play for the 30 minutes at one stretch. Also if at any time during play, they are happy with their balance, they can stop without using the remaining time. The players can check their ranking by following the instructions on the right hand side of the tournament screen. The winners do not have to claim the prizes, but the prizes will automatically be credited to their accounts within an hour of the tournament finishing. If two players tie, then the prizes will be split between them. Only one entry per person is permitted.

VIP Casino was launched in 1999. It is powered by Cryptologic and licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.
