VIP Casino Card Games Tourneys

VIP Casino is known for the online tournaments is hosts each month. Two casino games are chosen from its portfolio for these tournaments. This month VIP Casino has made a couple of changes in the format of the tournaments. Usually at least one of the casino games is an online slot game. In September two card games have been selected for the online tournaments. Also, usually the tournaments are freerolls, and players do not have to pay any fee for participation. This month a small fee is being levied.

However, the broad mechanism of the online tournaments remains the same. The tournaments are open to real money players at VIP Casino. The players will find the tournaments in the 'More Games' in the menu. When they click the 'Sign Up Now' button to register for the tournament $2 per tournament will be deducted from the balance in their casino accounts. For each online tournament players will be credited with a $500 tournament token balance. This amount and any sum they win while playing on the tournament is only play money and cannot be withdrawn by the player. Nor can it be transferred to their casino accounts. Once players register for the tournament they will be given only 10 minutes of wagering time. Their objective is to achieve the highest balance possible within this time. A leader board will be displayed on the right hand side of the tournament screen and players can continually track their progress. If the players feel that they have reached a sufficient tournament balance before the 10 minutes are up they can register their score and exit from the tournament. Each online tournament has a prize pool of $1,000. The player in the first place will win $400, the player in the second place will win $200 and the players in the 3rd to the 22nd places will win $20 each. The winners will get their prizes within 10 minutes of the end of the tournament.

The two card games selected for the online tournaments in September are Blackjack and Caribbean Stud Poker. Blackjack is a game in which the best payout is 3 to 2. Therefore players will need to wager larger amounts in order to increase their chip balances. Also they must not lose opportunities to use the split and double moves. In Caribbean Stud Poker the player places two bets. The ante bet always pays even money, but the regular bet can pay up to 200 to 1. Even a hand like Flush pays 5 to 1. Therefore Caribbean Stud Poker is a more volatile game and players must set higher targets.

VIP Casino is powered by software from Cryptologic and is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.
