For the last four years Platinum Play online casino has been holding major promotions known as International Casino Games. Usually the promotion is announced around August and gets in around summer next year. International Casino Games IV got over in May, 2009. In the last few months players at Platinum Play online casino had been expecting an announcement on the fifth season of this popular promotion. However nothing has come so far. It now appears that the promotion has been delayed and will be held completely within 2010. This is based on a simple message at the Platinum Play online casino website that says "For those who missed out on this year's event, don't stress, the International Casino Games (2010) will be coming soon!"
In International Casino Games IV the winners of the grand prize of €50,000 each were Gene, Chris, Miguel and Stephanie. Their journey to the top spot was not easy. From August 2008 to February 2009 players had to participate in grueling weekly competitions. These events offered a total of 350,000 casino credits and 100 seats to the finals. Each of the 100 seats offered a double ticket to embark on a lavish European cruise and compete in the live final event. The cruise gave players an unforgettable week-long vacation visiting some of Europe's top ports in England, France, Spain and Portugal. Apart from the final event of the promotion there was plenty of camaraderie and a host of activities onboard. From 100 the players were whittled down to nine. These nine participated in the final slots tournament to decide the top four places.
The International Casino Games was founded in 2005. Since then it has paid out over €3.5 million in prizes. International Casino Games I took place in 2005/2006. 95 players went on a weeklong Caribbean cruise and the grand winner received a prize of $250,000. International Casino Games II took place in 2006/2007. Players went on a Mediterranean cruise this time, but the grand winner prize remained the same at $250,000. In the International Casino Games III the format was changed to have four top winners instead of one, with prizes of €50,000 each. The runners up prizes were increased. The idea was to spread the largesse more evenly among the finalists.
Jackpot City online casino is a leading brand of the Fortune Lounge group. It is powered by software from Microgaming and is licensed by the Lottery and Gaming Authority of Malta. This year Jackpot City online casino has had other mega promotions running. First there was the Grand Slam of Slots online tournament that paid out €1 million to the top winner. Currently running is the You Play We Pay promotion that offers free chips to a number of players for the entire 2010. Once this latest promotion is over probably an announcement will be made on the International Casino Games.
