Normally all casinos offer tournaments based on slot games. Those that offer tournaments based on other games do so in addition to the slots tournaments. In April VIP Casino is offering tournaments in poker games instead of the usual slots tournaments.

There are two tournaments on offer. The first is the Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker Tournament and the second is the Bonus Video Poker Tournament. Both tournaments run concurrently from the 1st of April to the 31st of April and have an entry fee of $10. Each tournament carries a prize pool of $1,000, which will be distributed as follows. The winner will get $500, the runner up will get $250 and those in the 3rd to 7th places will get $50 each. The tournaments can be entered through the "Tournaments" menu, which can be accessed from the "Games" menu. On signing up for the tournament the entry fee of $10 is directly deducted from the players' accounts.

The procedure of play for both tournaments is the same. Each player will start with $1,000 worth of tournament chips. These are meant for tournament play only and cannot be cashed. The player is given 30 minutes in which to maximize his chip balance. One advantage that tournaments at VIP Casino offer is that players are not constrained to play their 30 minutes at a stretch. Players can withdraw at any time and complete the tournament by logging in later. If players feel that they have won enough they can terminate the tournament at any time they want. In order to ascertain if the chip balance is sufficient, the player can access his ranking by following the given instructions. One very important rule is that a player can participate in each tournament only once. Hence players should choose their time well. The winners will receive their prizes on the 1st of May.

The Bonus Video Poker Tournament will be played on the Bonus Video Poker Games on offer at VIP Casino. The Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker Tournament will be played on Texas Hold'em Bonus Poker. This is a casino poker game that is not very common in online casinos. It follows the general procedure of the Texas Hold'em games played in poker rooms but the players do not play against each other. Each player plays individually against the casino. The highlight of this game is a separate bonus bet that pays at 1,000 to 1 if both the dealer's hand and the player's hand hold a pair of Aces.

VIP Casino is powered by Cryptologic and licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta. It has received several industry awards.
