In September VIP Slots online casino has announced the Treasure Island tournament as its central event. Appropriately it has designated the online slot game X Marks The Spot for this tournament.
The online tournament has commenced on September 1 and will run till September 30. It has a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000, which will be shared by the top 275 players. The first place winner will get half the prize pool amounting to $50,000. The second place winner will get $20,000 and the third place winner will get $7,500. There will be two fourth place prizes of $2,500 each; five fifth place prizes of $1,000 each; ten sixth place prizes of $500 each; twenty seventh place prizes of $100 each; sixty eighth place prizes of $50 each; fifty ninth place prizes of $25 each and 125 tenth place prizes of $10 each.
The online slots tournament has an entry fee of $10 and a rebuy of $10. Players can rebuy unlimited number of times. Each rebuy gives the player a starting stack of $300 in tournament money and the players are compelled to wager at least 5 bets. It is very early days yet but already over 600 players have participated in the Treasure Island online tournament. The leader at the time of writing was a player with the alias ACOSTA who had accumulated a balance of over $47,000. This is a fair amount and will be a tough act to beat by those players participating in the following days.
X Marks The Spot is a popular slot game at VIP online casino. This pirate themed slot game was launched by Vegas Technology in June 2007 and has enthralled slots players since. X Marks The Spot is a five reel and 20 payline slot game, with the maximum coin denomination of $10. The largest fixed jackpot pays out 4,000 coins, which at maximum bet amounts to $40,000. Hitting that could easily catapult players to the top of the leader board in the Treasure Island online tournament. Another good winning opportunity is the free spins bonus round. It offers 15 free spins at tripled payouts and the free spins can be retriggered.
The bonus game on the second screen actually takes players to Treasure Island. Players get three chances to choose from the places marked as "X" on a treasure map and unearth the hidden treasure in the form of bonus points. Players can try their luck by trading the amount earned against the key for the treasure box, which may pay more or less.
