In the beginning of September, Golden Casino has lined up two online slots tournaments to celebrate topical events. One is Labor Day, which is a national holiday in the United States and the other is the kickoff for the National Football League. Golden Casino is powered by Vegas Technology and accepts players from the United States. Therefore it is hardly surprising that it is celebrating two important American events.

Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September giving Americans a long weekend. This year Labor Day falls on September 7. Labor Day is not only a landmark in the American trade union movement but also signifies the end of summer. So amid the Labor Day parades and other festivities players can participate in a huge online slots tournament at Golden Casino.

This tournament is being called the Labor Day Week Long tournament. It will start on September 4 and run till September 11, with the Labor Day weekend falling smack in the middle. The tournament belongs to the Big Prize Pool category of events at Golden Casino, which over the month offer guaranteed prizes of $260,000. The Labor Day Week Long tournament has the largest prize pool of the lot. It is $100,000. The first place winner will get $35,000 and the top 500 finishers are assured of prizes. The entry fee is only $0.88, but rebuys will cost $20. The designated online slot game is Cherry Blossoms.

The kickoff for the National Football League Regular Season takes place on September 10. Tennessee Titans will be pitted against the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Heinz Field Stadium, the home ground of the Pittsburgh team. The game starts at 8.30 PM ET. The Countdown to Kickoff online tournament will start on September 10 at 10 AM and run till 8.30 PM. This will enable the players to get into the groove for the first game of the season. The prize pool is $2009 and the entry fee and rebuys will cost $2.50.

Golden Casino has chosen an appropriate online slot game for this tournament. It is the Vegas Technology slot $5 Million Touchdown. The slot game has an American Football theme. The reels are set in the background of a football pitch. The symbols on the reels display typical football imagery led by an assortment of football players and skimpily dressed cheerleaders. The coin denomination spread ranges from $0.01 to $10.00 making it ideal for both conservative and aggressive tournament play. The slot has an exciting bonus game on the second screen with the multiplier being equal to the number of winning paylines.

While players are waiting for the Labor Day Week Long tournament to start, they can participate in the September Kickoff $10,000 online tournament that has already begun and will run till September 4. The selected online slot is Dynasty.

I agree with you wiz, I too like seeing these topic based tournaments. It gives you a reason to play them more then just the money up for grabs, especially when the tournaments are smaller and the prizes #1st place prizes are rather tiny.

They're still plowing ahead with these big tournaments. I like the fact that they've moved to themed/topic based tournaments (example. Michael Jackson tournament that ended recently, now these). I think it's a good approach for them and that players including myself like this idea.
