Online Vegas Casino is one of the few online casinos that host online tournaments in video poker games. This is the reason that video poker players flock to Online Vegas Casino.

The video poker the tournaments run throughout the month. There are four tournaments in a week. The tournaments begin on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. These are 24 hour events that begin at 8 pm on the designated days and end at 8 pm on the next day. The entry fee is a nominal $1.99. These video poker tournaments are rebuy tournaments and players can rebuy a number of times for a fee of $1.99. Online Vegas Casino offers a guaranteed prize pool of $2,500 for these online tournaments. The prizes are not disbursed as casino credits but as loyalty points, which are known as Bonus Bucks at Online Vegas Casino.

Players start with 100 credits and have to maximize their chip balance during the tournament. This chip balance is tournament money and cannot be cashed. The video poker variant chosen for these online tournaments is Deuces Wild. In this variant the twos act as wild cards and can substitute for other cards so as to make a higher ranking poker hand. This adds to the excitement. Player can make five of a kind hand with four like cards and a deuce. Players can also make four deuces, which pay out marginally less than a royal flush. There are two variants of Deuces Wild video poker at Online Vegas Casino. One is the single hand game and the other is the 2-4 hand game. The online tournaments alternate between these variants. In the 2-4 variant the player can toggle between 2, 3 and 4 hands before every deal. Playing with 4 hands speeds up the game considerably and is very useful when the tournament player is chasing a large chip balance.
