Vegas Technology Casinos Now with Monthly Payout Reports

Vegas Technology Casinos Now with Monthly Payout Reports

I’ve been talking a lot about Vegas Technology powered online casinos this week – And guess what? I’m still not done talking. What can I say, I like to smoke ’em if I got ’em. And let’s face it – Vegas Technology Casinos are smokin’ hot right now. And no, it’s not just because they are one of the few software licensors whose online casino operators are still open to U.S. players.

What makes Vegas Technology Casinos popular these days is, quite frankly, a large and diverse guaranteed tournament schedule, lots of free bonus cash, and a pretty great customer service track record. Now, I’m not saying they are entirely spotless – and what software licensor is for that matter? However, considering the amount of business Vegas Tech online casinos like Go Casino, VIP Slots and Online Vegas are doing with U.S. players, their reputation is impressive.

Furthermore, many of Vegas Tech’s operators have been boosting their transparency. As mentioned in the previous blog post, online casinos licensed through Curacao eGaming are now required to display a Validation Seal on the homepage of their website. As for Online Vegas and Go Casino, they are now publishing monthly payout reports prepared by the independent software testing house, Certified Fair Gambling (CFG). How does a 96% average return on all games sound?

As for Vegas Technology’s flagship network of online casinos, English Harbour Gaming Ventures (EHGV), they too are certified fair by CFG. However, their certification only goes so far as the software platform, and does not include monthly payout reports. This is something which EHGV is going to need to do if they want to remain at the top of their game and in the running for U.S. player’s business – Players, mind you (cough, cough, pay attention) who are becoming more educated about online casino operator transparency.

For anyone not in know, Go Casino and Online Vegas are owned by the same company – Favian International. As for Golden Casino, it is thought there is some connection with Go Casino, although there is no proof other than their names being similar. Even if they are, who really cares, if you ask me. Eustacia International is the registered owner of Golden Casino with the Curacao eGaming licensing authority. They also own the OCS approved online casino, Crazy Slots.

And now there’s yet another addition to the family. Introducing Grand Vegas Casino. Not to be confused with the RTG powered Grande Vegas Casino (just one letter, I know), Grand Vegas is certainly going with a Vegas-esque theme. Decked out in red, white and blue, their website is obviously catering to U.S. players. And with good reason. Grand Vegas’ sister casinos has already proven very successful on that front. While we haven’t given an official recommendation to Grand Vegas (just yet), rest assured OCS believes in their experienced management team and will nonetheless be paying close attention to their early beginnings and ongoing track record.

July, 2010 Kicks Off Part II of EHGV’s Summer Slots Series

Monday, July 5th, 2010

The explosive booms and bright flashes in the sky can only mean one thing for Americans. Well, take that back. It could perhaps mean two things, depending on just how deep your love of internet gambling and online casino slots tournaments runs. So yes, America’s Day of Independence has certainly arrived. And so too has the second part of EHGV’s Summer Slots Series.

Now underway at our favorite EHGV online casino, Slots Galore, the month long internet slots tournament runs until July 31, 2010, and guarantees $100,000 in prize winnings. Depending on how much you play through the month and how lucky you get, you could very well be one of five-hundred leaderboard finishers to walk away with cash winnings. Not only is this a large prize poll in terms of actual guaranteed winnings, the sheer number of prize recipients is above average.

Of course, the further down the leaderboard, the less the winnings. But with a minimum of $25 for the 201st -500th finisher, that’s certainly nothing to balk at. Moving up from there, players who finish 101st-200th place will receive $50, 41st-100th will walk away with $100 and 21st-40th will be granted a cool $200 each.

To make the top twenty, however, is what it’s all about. This is where we are talking thousands of dollars for each winner. 11th-20th place will each receive $1,000, while 6th-10th will get $2,500, 4th and 5th place each get $5,000 and third place nabs a nifty $10,000. From here, it’s a big jump for the first runner-up, who will walk away with $25,000, while the top finisher pockets a generous $60,000 in winnings.

The cost to join is only $10, which will get you enough credits to have a solid go spinning the reels of the “Shaark!” video slot. It goes without saying that if you really want to stand a chance at winning, you will need to procure more credits with a $10 rebuy. It makes sense to do so, especially considering that with five rebuy’s you will gain a free entry into part three of the Summer Slots Series, taking place the entire month of August and dishing out $175,000 in guaranteed winnings. Furthermore, the biggest winner of the overall three-month tournament will receive an additional $75,000 grand prize.

And if you just can’t get enough online casino slots tournament action, Slots Galore also offers weekly tourny’s with $5 entry fee, dailies with $3 entry (all day) and $0.50 entry (45 minutes). There’s even Blackjack, Video Poker and Roulette tournaments for all you strategy-minded players.
