InterCasino, powered by Cryptologic, was the first fully functional online casino. Even today it sets the pace for the online casino industry through its excellent set of promotions. Featuring prominently are three tournaments hosted every month. Every month a new set of exciting and topical games are selected from the vast repertoire at its disposal.
This March the first tournament is the Street Fighter tournament that runs from the 1st of March to the 10th of March. The tournament has an entry fee of $10 and offers a prize pool of $500. The first prize is $250, the second prize is $100 and the next six places get a prize of $25 each. The players start with a tournament balance of $500 and get 30 minutes to play. The Street Fighter is one of Cryptologic's famous branded slots based on Marvel Comics super heroes. It features Ken, Ryu, Guile, Chun Li and Sagat as the Street Fighters. The game enables players to choose their favorite super hero to act as the wild symbol. Street Fighter was converted to a slot game from an arcade video game and it carries the superb animations and sound effects of the original arcade game.
The second tournament, which runs from the 11th to the 17th of March, predictably features St. Patrick's Day theme. St. Patrick's Day falls on the 17th of March this year. The slot game chosen for this tournament is ‘Luck of the Irish', which should not be confused with the Vegas Technology slot having a similar name. The Cryptologic slot offered at InterCasino is not on the list of slots routinely offered. This is pulled out of oblivion only on special occasions and offered for a short duration. Luck of the Irish will go back into hibernation after the 17th so players should make full use of it while it is there. The symbols are typically Irish and include Four Leaf Clover, Pot Of Gold, Horse Shoe and Leprechaun. The reels are set in a verdant green color, which is the color of St. Patrick's Day. The structure of the tournament is the same as the earlier one.
The final tournament starts on the 18th of March and runs till the end of the month. It is based on the Multi Player Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker game that is very popular at InterCasino. This game is modeled on the poker game but with a difference. Players compete individually with the dealer, as in blackjack, and not with each other as in poker. A number of betting rounds are provided so as to simulate the excitement of the real Hold'em game. Players should watch out for the side bet that pays up to 1000 times the bonus bet wager.
