Father's Day as a holiday was won after a 60 year struggle by those who wanted to get an equal status for fathers as for mothers. Therefore the celebrations are that much the sweeter. Go Casino is celebrating Father's Day in the only way it knows and that is by holding two special online tournaments.
The first of these tournaments is the Father's Day Weekend Madness. Though Father's Day is on Sunday June 20, the Weekend Madness event begins on Friday June 18 and will run till Tuesday June 22. The online slots tournament offers a guaranteed prize pool of $75,000, which is one of the largest prizes ever offered at Go Casino. Out of this $39,900 will be distributed as cash to the top ten players on the leader board and the balance $35,100 as loyalty points, which are known as Bonus Bucks, will be distributed to a larger number of players. The top winner will get $20,000 and the player in the tenth place will win $750. The Bonus Bucks distribution starts with $650 to the eleventh player and goes down to 500 prizes of $5 each.
Though there are yet a few days for the online tournament to commence, the registration is open and almost 100 members have enrolled. There is an entry fee of $12.99, which is not high given the quantum of the prize pool. In addition players can rebuy any number of times, but each rebuy will cost $12.99. The online slot game selected for this Father's Day Weekend Madness event is Fire Hawk. This is a relatively recent game, based on an American Indian theme. What will interest tournament players in this game are the 6,000 coins fixed jackpot and the free spins bonus round. This offers 20 free spins in which the multiplier can be as much as 10 times.
Those players at Go Casino who are not interested in paying so much for the buy-in and rebuys can opt for the Father's Day Weekend Bonus Buck Weekend Freeroll. There is no entry fee and each rebuy will cost only $2.49. The prize pool is significantly reduced at $5,000 and is available only as loyalty points. But then in order to get some advantage, players will have to concede some other advantage. This online slots tournament will run from 9 AM on Saturday June 19 to 10 PM on Sunday June 20. The slot game selected for this event is 20,000 Leagues, which is an old favorite at Go Casino. Loosely based on Jules Verne's novel it has some exciting underwater animations.
