InterCasino Offers Freeroll With Big Prize

Freeroll online tournaments usually do not offer big prizes, and understandably so. Therefore when any online casino offers a freeroll with a big prize it sets the online gaming industry alight. In August 2009, InterCasino has announced such an event.

The Free $10,000 Roulette tournament has been running at InterCasino since August 1. It will continue till the end of the month. Members of InterCasino who have not participated have only ten days left. The beauty of this online tournament is that players need not make any deposit in order to participate. This means that players who are not members of InterCasino can also play in this free online roulette tournament without spending a cent. They will have to register at InterCasino but will not have to make any deposit. They can access and play in the tournament straight away.

Not only is the prize pool a huge $10,000 but it also runs deep. The first place winner will get $5,000. Half the prize pool for the first place winner is very attractive. The second place winner will get $2,600. Then the next 48 winners will get $50 each. Whether to give large prizes to few players or small prizes to many players is a difficult decision for any online casino. InterCasino has balanced this well by giving two large prizes followed by many small ones.

The procedure for participating in the online roulette tournament is very simple. Players have to be logged into their real money accounts. They will have to click 'More Games' in the menu, select the 'Free Tournament' and click 'Sign Up Now'. Then players will be credited with a $500 tournament token balance. This amount is for playing in the tournament only. Neither this amount nor the balance at the end of the tournament can be cashed. The playing time is limited to 10 minutes. With a $500 starting balance and only 10 minutes playing time the players can get as aggressive as they want to.

The Free $10,000 Roulette tournament is a part of The Sound of Money promotions that have been running at InterCasino since the beginning of July. There are several other events left in this package of promotions. Happy Hour will take place on August 23. At 1100 hours EST the special Sound of Money jingle will be played and a 60 minutes countdown will appear at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on that icon will reveal what players need to do during that Happy Hour in order to win prizes. Some of the prizes that have been won in the earlier Happy Hour promotions are signed music albums to the top 10 wagerers, a $20 bonus on wagering $250 on any slot and a free entry to a $500 online tournament.

InterCasino is powered by Cryptologic and licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.

I wouldn't really say that that's too big of a prize seeing as many of the US facing online casinos offer much larger prize pools some well in excess of 30K for the 1st place winner of the tournament with the gross prize pool somewhere in the range of 200K often times. I think that US online casinos like Golden Casino and the others in the group that are offering these big tournaments probably have more traffic and players then the non-US online casinos just because the US market is so much bigger.
