March is a great month for players at the English Harbour group of online casinos. This is because one of the largest online tournaments titled March Madness is held this month and it is held across all brands of the group.
The March Madness online tournament is extremely popular because it offers a gigantic guaranteed prize pool of $100,000. Of this $60,000 is offered as cash and $40,000 is offered by way of bonuses. The cash component of the prize pool does not run very deep with only 40 players sharing the $60,000. The player who finishes on top of the leader board takes home $25,000. The second and third players win $10,000 and $5,000 respectively. At the bottom of the cash component of the prizes 20 players will get $250 each. Over 2,500 players share the bonus part of the prize pool. At the bottom 2,275 players get $10 each.
The entry fee for this fantastic amount of booty is only $10. The cost to the players is likely to be much more because March Madness is a rebuy tournament and with so much at stake there will be plenty of rebuys. Players are allowed to rebuy a maximum 1,000 number of times for a rebuy fee of $10. Players are given a starting chip stack of $200 and can rebuy when their balance falls to $5. The rebuy chip stack is worth $225 and this should give players further incentive to rebuy. The online tournament kicks off at the English Harbour group casinos on March 1 and the registration has opened. The tournament will run till April 1 and the last day for registration is March 31.
The English Harbour group has chosen the online slot game Butterflies for this tournament. Butterflies is one of those cute colorful slot games and features butterflies, caterpillars, toadstools and flowers in a lush green environment. This game has pluses and minuses for tournament players. The line payouts are pretty good with the male and female butterflies paying 7,000 and 3,000 coins respectively. However, there is no free spins bonus round, which always has the potential of providing a bonanza and changing leader board positions drastically. It however has a unique Butterfly Feature in which a butterfly appears out of the House wild symbol and randomly lands on several other symbols converting them to wilds and thus offering possibilities of further winning combinations.
The online casinos of the English Harbour group are all powered by software from Vegas Technology and are all licensed by the Department of Offshore Gambling of Antigua and Barbuda. The leading brands of this group are Millionaire Casino, VIP Slots Casino and Caribbean Gold Casino.
