Christopher Columbus landed in the New World on October 12, 1492. However, United States has a practice of celebrating secular holidays on Mondays so as to create a long weekend. Hence Columbus Day is being celebrated this year on Monday October 11.

Go Casino likes long weekends because they allow players to wager more. This year the online casino is contributing to the Columbus Day celebrations by hosting an online tournament. The tournament will commence at 12 AM on Monday October 11 and run till 12 PM on Tuesday October 12. Go Casino has set aside a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000 for this event. This is a smaller prize pool than some of its other slots tournaments offer, but the advantage is that the Columbus Day event is a freeroll. Players do not have to pay any entry fee and this would really be a celebration. Even the rebuy fee is a minuscule $3.50. The starting stack is only 75 credits and therefore bankroll management skills will come into play.

An event like the Columbus Day freeroll requires an online slot game to match. Go Casino has selected California Gold. The spirit of adventure and the dream of riches with which Columbus set out reached fulfillment in the California Gold Rush. California Gold online slot is based on the Gold Rush theme. The symbols on the reels are the Miner, the Gold Nugget, the Outlaw and a host of accessories used in gold mining. Tournament players will love the 5,000 coin payout that the Outlaw offers, but more than that they will love the fact that California Gold offers both a free spins feature and a bonus game on the second screen. The free spins feature offers tripled payouts and the bonus game has the Miner collecting Gold Nuggets for free credits.

While waiting for the Columbus Day freeroll to begin players can participate in this week's Guaranteed Weekend Madness, which is starting on October 8 and will run till October 11. This offers a grand prize pool of $30,000 of which the top winner will get $10,000. An entry fee of $10 and a rebuy fee of $10 will apply. The online slot game for this edition of the Weekend Madness is Funky Chicken. Funky Chicken is very popular with tournament players at Go Casino. Apart from the comical theme and funky animations the attractions are a 5,000 coin top fixed jackpot and a free spins round with random multipliers.

Go Casino is powered by software from Vegas Technology and licensed in the gaming jurisdiction of Curacao. It acquired instant fame when it launched with a welcome bonus of $20,000.
