In a press release from St. Julians, Malta, the Fortune Lounge group has announced that they will kick off the festive season with a bang at some of its online casinos. A special $20,000 Christmas Cracker slots tournament has been launched as a part of the International Slot League. The main online casino is Platinum Play, which is the flagship brand of the group. The other online casinos are Royal Vegas, 7 Sultans and Vegas Palms. All these online casinos are powered by the leading software provider, Microgaming. Actually the Christmas Cracker slots tournament seems to be a Microgaming initiative because it has been announced at some of their other online casinos as well.
The online slots tournament has started from December 10 at 10.00 AM and will run till Christmas Eve, ending on December 24 at 10.00 PM. There is a very attractive guaranteed prize pool of $20,000 that will be shared by the top 25 placed players on the leader board at the end of the tournament. The top prize is $1,400 and the prize reduces by $50 for every drop in position thereafter. This festive tournament is being played on the popular Microgaming video slot game Hitman. The format of the online tournament is as follows. Players will be given one round in which to compete for their share of the top prize. It is a freeroll and hence there is no buy in. Players start with 30,000 coins and are given 25 minutes playing time. Players will be allowed 5 Continue Play options. Each such option will cost $10 and will give the player 18,000 coins and 15 minutes of playing time. Players will also be allowed 50 Rebuys. Each rebuy will cost $15 and will give the player 30,000 coins and 25 minutes of playing time. The Christmas Cracker slots tournament can be accessed from the lobbies within the casino clients. Players need to simply click Games View, Tournaments, Slots and them Christmas Cracker. The registration will continue throughout the duration of the tournament, but there is a cap on the number of players and hence it is not advisable to defer participation till too late.
The International Slots League is also giving another $40,000 per week in daily freeroll tournaments in December. Details on these events can be found on the website of the participating casinos. Platinum Play and the other casinos are licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta and also carry the Safe & Fair seal of eCOGRA. Hence they are very user friendly casinos. The tutorial offers information on how to register, choose an alias, participate in the tournament and obtain continue plays or rebuys.
