Texas Hold'em Poker is easily the most popular land casino gambling game. Most online gaming software providers offer an online version of this game that replicates the betting structure and thus offers the excitement of the poker game. But online tournaments in Texas Hold'em are rare. There is one being currently offered at VIP Casino and hence players should not let this opportunity go.
The Texas Hold'em online tournament is starting today but will run till June 30. Since the leader board is displayed, players will probably participate as late as possible so that they can see the existing rankings. However it is better not to leave it till the last minute because traffic will be very high at that time and there could be a problem in accessing the tournament. The entry fee for the online tournament is only $10. Players will start with a chip stack of $1,000 and get 30 minutes to play. The guaranteed prize pool will be distributed as follows. The first placed player will win $500, the second placed player will win $250 and the players in the third to tenth places will win $50 each. In case of a tie the prizes will be split between the players. The best thing about tournaments at VIP Casino is that the prizes are credited to the winners' accounts within an hour of the completion of the tournament.
The Texas Hold'em game at VIP Casino has a side bet with bonus payouts that offers an additional opportunity to increase the chip balance. A pair of twos in the player's two dealt cards offers a payout of 3 to 1 and a pair of aces offers a payout of 30 to 1. The hands ranked in between offer intermediate payouts. The real payout comes when both the player's and the dealer's dealt cards contain an ace pair. Then the payout is 1000 to 1, a sure fire mechanism to propel the player to the top of the leader board.
The main game also offers plenty of chances of winning big since players can increase their wager in stages. The player can place the wager in up to four stages. Starting with the ante bet, he can place further wagers before the flop, turn and river. He will place the later bets only if he has good chances of winning therefore chip accumulation can take place quickly.
VIP Casino is one of the oldest online casinos having been launched in 1999. It is powered by software from Cryptologic and offers more than 180 online casino games including the famous branded Marvel slots. VIP Casino is the sister casino of InterCasino and is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.
