April Tournament Schedule at EHGV Online Casinos and Go Casino Looking Good

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

It’s the last day of March folks, and you know what that means. Yes, less winds and rain…hopefully :). But it also means the end of English Harbour Casinos (EHGV network) March Madness slots tournament and the beginning of yet another loaded round of slots tournaments the World Wide Web over.

EHGV has not officially announced their April schedule as of yet, but if it’s anything like March, slots players will undoubtedly be satisfied. The March Madness tournament, which ends at midnight tonight (check time zone differentials inside the online casino software platform), is dishing out $300,000 in guaranteed winnings to tournament players, including $150,000 just to the first place finisher alone. And this was in addition to daily and weekly pot tournaments and weekly slots free rolls.

The other big U.S. facing online casino network offering impressive guaranteed monthly slots tournament winnings is Hambledon NV, whose most popular site, Go Casino leads the way in traffic and customer ratings. In March, Go Casino was guaranteeing over $480,000 in tournament winnings. April 2010 looks even better with over $500,000 in guaranteed winnings, as well as three free tournament entry’s per player. The full schedule will be posted on Go Casino’s tournament page at midnight tonight.

Another thing worth mentioning about EHGV and Hambledon is they also offer casino game tournaments. EHGV online casinos have bi-weekly Blackjack and Video Poker tournaments, a monthly video poker tournament and weekly Roulette tournaments with pot percentage winnings. Go Casino offers daily weekday Blackjack tournaments with $0.99 entry fees and pot percentage winnings, and comprehensive video poker tournament schedule every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday with $1.99 entry fees and $1,500 guaranteed winnings.

$50,000 Weekender Slots Tournament Now at Hambledon Online Casinos

Friday, March 19th, 2010

The popular U.S. facing network of online casinos owned and managed by Hambledon NV is gearing up for the first of two $50,000 guaranteed Weekend Madness slots tournaments. In fact, the tournament is currently underway (as of today), and will be running until 8 pm EST on Tuesday, March 23rd. With just two days of rest in between, the very next and last Weekend Madness tournament of the month will begin on Friday, March 26th and will run through the following Tuesday.

If you’re wondering what happened to the first two Weekend Madness tournaments for March, these were actually scrubbed to make room for a $150,000 guaranteed St. Patrick’s Day tournament. Having wrapped up on Wednesday of this week, the St. Patrick’s Day free roll tournament was a major success, generating a huge turnout of thousands of players. The $50K weekend tournaments are also expected to generate major participation, and the entire month as a whole is guaranteed to dish out over $480,000 in tournament awards.

As mentioned, Hambledon NV manages a network of online casinos, which include Go Casino, Online Vegas, and the newly launched Crazy Slots, which just so happens to be the OCS topmost recommendation for playing online casino slots tournaments currently. Crazy Slots is currently offering a generous welcome bonus package worth 100% up to $777 Free on the first thirteen deposits and 125% Free on the fourteenth and fifteenth deposit.

To enter the $50K guaranteed Weekend Madness tournament, which awards $15,000 to the first place finisher, open a free account at Crazy Slots, make a minimum deposit of $25 and view the tournaments schedule from inside the online casino software platform. If you are already a member, simply pay the $12.99 entry fee and your off to the races on the Cleopatra’s Pyramid slots, which happen to be one of Vegas Technology’s most popular slots of all time.

March Madness $300,000 Slots Tournament Begins at US Friendly Online Casinos

Monday, March 1st, 2010
Slots Tournament Where Madness Ensues!

Slots Tournament Where Madness Ensues!

March is here people’s, and you know what that means! Wind gusts, heavy rain, college basketball and cold beers. It’s madness, I tell you! What, didn’t hear about the cold beer part? Oh ya, that’s always been associated with March, not to mention April, May, June, July…you get the picture.

Of course, most people associate the phrase “March Madness” with college basketball. However, all the serious online casino gamblers out there also associate March Madness with online slots tournaments. And I’m just talking about any online slots tournament – I’m talking about a slots tournament befitting of the title, “March Madness” peoples!

If you haven’t heard already, “March Madness” is a $300,000 guaranteed slots tournament hosted by US friendly, EH Gaming Ventures online casino network (Vegas Technology Software). It’s the largest tournament of the month, and one of the largest all year. The first place finisher alone is guaranteed to walk away with a massive $150,000. The remaining $150K in guaranteed prize winnings is shared down the line, with second through fifth place nabbing $10,000 each, sixth through tenth place pocketing $2,500, eleventh through twentieth place each receiving $1,000 in cash, and so on down the line.

The tournament begins today and lasts until March 31st. All tournament play takes place on the raucously fun and popular “Magic Monkey” bonus video slot, which offers five reels and twenty-five paylines of action. Check out our Magic Monkey slot machine review (coming soon) for more details on how to navigate and play the magic monkey (such dirty, dirty minds you have 🙂 ). The tournament entry fee is a meager $10 – considering the guaranteed payout – and, of course, buyins are allowed. In fact, they are encouraged, for like any online casino slots tournament, the player with the highest accrued balance at the end of the tournament wins. It’s that simple.

Signing up to play is just as simple. Open a free account at any EH Gaming Venture US Casinos (VIP Slots Casino, Slots Galore, Super Slots Casino are the OCS best picks), login to view the online casino lobby, select the Tournaments link and click the Join button for the $300K March Madness Slots Tournament. Oh, and don’t forget to pick up some beer. What, you think this is Vegas? Although I can’t promise you a cocktail waitress, I can promise that you will soon understand why beer and March Madness go hand-in-hand!

Europa Casino Hosting Online Slots Tournaments for Bonus Cash

Even More Bonus Money at Europa Casino

Even More Bonus Money at Europa Casino

Popular Euro Casino, Europa Casino (what’s in a name, go figure, right?), has long been known as a great place to go for free bonus cash. If you haven’t heard already, Playtech-powered, Europa, offers up to $/£/€2,400 in free bonus money over the course of one year (not counting VIP loyalty rewards), broken down into a welcome bonus of either 50% up to $/£/€500 Free or 100% up to $/£/€100 Free, monthly bonuses of 100% up to $/£/€100 Free and weekly deposit bonuses worth 25 Free.

Now, Casino Europa has announced another inventive way to dish out fee bonus money to real depositing players. Catering to slots fans and tournament players, Europa says it will be offering free weekly online slots tournaments every Wednesday and lasting a full twenty-four hours. Indeed, when I say free, that means it’s a freeroll and there is no cost to join. However, if you want to be one of twenty players to be spotted with $/£/€50 in free bonus money, you are going to have to wager on the reels. The good news is that Europa Casino offers over fifty of the most cutting edge online casino slots today, including Playtech’s recently launched Marvel series (Blade, Daredevil, Elektra, Fantastic 4 and X-Men).

Furthermore, it only takes one lucky spin to rank on the slots leader board. And since the tournaments are live, players can see their ranking in real time on the Top 20 Leaderboard. In other words, it’s like any other online casino slots tournament. However, I would imagine the competition is a little less stiff considering the cash prizes come in the form of bonus money (still not a bad thing in my opinion).

As with all bonus money, it’s important that you are aware of the full terms. The wagering conditions are pretty reasonable on Europa Casino’s bonus cash, which is currently set at 20x for the 100% bonus and 40x for the 50% High Roller bonus, which really isn’t that much of a high roller bonus, if you ask me. Similar to most slots bonuses being offered today, wagers on Baccarat, Roulette, Craps and Video Poker and Blackjack do not count toward meeting the wager requirement. However, what’s different about these bonuses is that certain varieties of Blackjack count one-third toward meeting the play-through, while certain table games normally exempt from the play-through meet the play-through in full. Please read the terms posted on their website for details, or read the OCS Europa Casino Review.

The only term which I find annoying at Europa Casino is that they impose a maximum monthly withdrawal limit of $9,900 even on progressive jackpot wins. Don’t ask me how or why, but it’s in the terms. Weekly and monthly withdrawal limits are not uncommon at all for regular winnings, but that’s not the case on progressive jackpot wins. In any case, Europa Casino is very popular with players, except of course, those in the U.S. The Recent Winners list speaks for itself – be sure to check it out to see what games are hot.

Club USA Casino and Club World Casino Group: New Bonuses and Promotions

Friday, December 11th, 2009

Club USA Casino Special Weekly Promotions

From today through Friday, December 18th, players at the Club World Casino Group, including dedicated online casinos facing the United States, United Kingdom and Europe in general, are eligible to enter a series of promotions and claim new free cash bonus offers.

The promotion taking place right now until Sunday, December 13th is called the “A La Carte Slots“, and is a quasi-slots tournament awarding $1,000 in real cash winnings. I say “real” cash, so as to distinguish a difference between bonus money and cash that can actually be withdrawn :). The way it works is that, unlike traditional online slots tournaments, “A La Carte Slots” awards the player who simply wagers the most money in the designated time period. It’s like a loyalty program for slots tournaments.

Other tournaments award the player who has the highest balance, meaning that one lucky jackpot spin could seal the deal. On one hand, players who don’t necessarily have large bankrolls do not stand a great chance of winning, but then again, the winnings from a big win early on can be used to bet even more, hopefully lasting through the entire tournament. Taking the former into consideration, Club USA Casino is also offering a special tournament entry bonus and three-day bonus package. Simply choose from Menu A or Menu B on the tournaments sign up page to receive either a $75 bonus credit or $150 in bonus chips. Menu A requires a deposit of $100 and gives the $75 bonus, while Menu B requires a $200 deposit and awards an additional $150 in bonus credits to use in the tournament. The coupon codes for these bonuses are TOURNAMENTA and TOURNAMENTB, accordingly.

An additional bonus package is also available, and consists of twenty 50% bonuses up to $1,000 each for play on Slots, Keno and scratch cards. Up to 20 claims per player. Coupon Code: FESTIVEXMAS50. For Blackjack, Video Poker and Table Game players, a 40% bonus up to $1,000 can also be claimed through Sunday, December 13th (up to 20 times). Coupon Code: LUCKYSOCK40.

Also, this type of tournament structure provides a better chance of winning to those players who are willing to spend more. In other words, expect the high rollers to come out for “A La Carte Slots”. First place takes home $300, runner up gets $200, and 3rd through 10th place get $50 each. If you’re wondering about the name, “A La Carte Slots” refers to the fact that – once again – unlike traditional slots tournaments, players can choose any of their favorite online casino slots to play at.

Following the close of the tournament on Sunday, December 13th, Club USA Casino is offering a one-day-only bonus worth the same as the aforementioned (50% up to $1,000 on slots and 40% up to $1,000 on table games). These can be claimed 10 times per player and are available just on Sunday, December 13, 2009. The slots bonus claim code is PANETTONE50 and the table game bonus is FRUITCAKE40.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get better, Club World is hosting a seven day promotion from Monday, December 14 through Sunday, December 20, 2009. It is basically a series of increasing daily slots and table game bonuses, starting at 40% on Monday and culminating at 75% on Friday and through the weekend. Each bonus can be claimed 10 times and has the following claim codes.

Slots Bonuses: COOKIE1 (Monday), COOKIE2 (Tuesday), COOKIE3 (Wednesday), COOKIE4 (Thursday), COOKIE5 (Fri/Sat/Sun)

Table Game/BJ Bonuses: DOUGHNUT1 (Monday), DOUGHNUT2 (Tuesday), DOUGHNUT3 (Wednesday), DOUGHNUT4 (Thursday), DOUGHNUT5 (Fri/Sat/Sun)

FYI, Club World Casinos offers some of the friendliest bonus terms and conditions on the Web. The above mentioned slots bonuses have a 25x play-through requirement and the table game bonuses are just 40x (one of the lowest table game bonus play-through’s available). Please note that Craps, Roulette, Baccarat and Sic Bo wagers are explicitly disqualified from meeting the play-through, and players should avoid making wagers at these games while playing with bonus money.

All Star Slots Added to Top Ten Online Casinos at OCS

All Star Slots Weekly Bonuses

At Online Casino Suite, not only are we constantly on the lookout for the best online casinos to add to our directory, we are likewise constantly monitoring the online casinos already listed on our review pages. Whether that’s updating our blog and games pages with tournament news or bonus page with, you guessed it, bonus updates, there is always something new to talk about in the fast paced world of online gambling.
If you are a repeat visitor at OCS, you will have probably noticed the rankings of casinos sometimes changes, which is the way it should be. Some online casinos may start off with a terrific bonus offer to garner new signups but soon thereafter downgrade their promotions (simply because they can’t afford to keep on giving away so much free money 🙂 ). Consequently, they move a little down in the rankings, considering other factors of course. Some online casinos, like All Star Slots, start off a little smaller and then begin to blossom into the “best of the best”. Consequently, they move up in the rankings.
Thus, we are pleased to report that All Star Slots has been moved to the Top 10 Online Casinos listed on our online casino reviews page and casino bonus page. There were several factors for doing so, the least of which was All Star Slots choice to give their players a greater selection of casino games.
Now offering a full suite of RTG casino games, All Star Slots has upgraded their welcome bonus into one of the more term-friendly slots bonuses out there right now. It’s a two-part bonus that can be claimed with a minimum deposit of $25. A player’s first deposit is worth 100% up to $300 Free (Bonus Code: ALLSTAR1), and the second deposit is worth 100% up to $487 Free (Bonus Code: ALLSTAR2), resulting in $787 Free over two deposits. The wager requirement is only 20x, which is very reasonable. Furthermore, the maximum cashout of winnings derived from bonus use is $5,000. Compared to most other online casinos out there, that is an outstanding value. A casino games bonus worth 50% up to $500 Free is also available.
Another reason why we are liking All Star Slots these days is because of their ongoing promotions. There is so much offered now, that we’ll have to save the details for a future blog post. However, we can say that over $7,600 in daily bonuses are available each month. That’s up to $93,600 in additional bonus money per year.
Slots tournaments players also have good reason to check out All Star Slots. They are now offering their own lineup of tournaments, which although not as large as some of the other tournaments out there, have far less competition and still guarantee a large chunk of cash to the top finishers. For example, the current tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000 for the top 30 players, with $1,000 going to the first place winner. Now is the perfect time to get in on this action before it explodes and becomes more competitive – yet another good reason why All Star Slots deserves to be in the OCS Top 10.

About All Star Slots
All Star Slots Casino was launched in 2008 as the inaugural site of turnkey software platform, Wizard Gaming. Initially geared toward connoisseurs of slot machines, which they certainly had to offer, players soon began vocalizing that they wanted more table games (only Blackjack was offered at the time). Management at All Star Slots made an executive decision and decided to move over to the RTG software platform, which being more established than Wizard Gaming, offered a full suite of 125+ casino games, including all of the standard table games you would find in a Vegas casino. Today, All Star Slots is one of the more popular RTG Casinos in business, and is also open to players in the U.S.

$75,000 See You in December Online Slots Tournament

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Go Casino Slots Tournament

With Thanksgiving over and the new month just around the corner, online casinos are gearing up to kick off a new monthly tournament schedule – well, at least those sites that even offer tournaments to begin with. These days, it’s rare not to find any tournaments, especially slots tournaments, at casinos vying for the “best online casino” status.

One such destination, or rather, network of online casinos, is Go Casino, Online Vegas and Crazy Slots. Tied together in similar fashion to what brick ‘n mortar casinos would call a wide area progressive network, these three casinos share the same tournament feed. Well, four to be exact – Golden Casino is in the network too – but if you didn’t hear already, Golden will no longer be accepting U.S. players come December 1, 2009. The other aforementioned casinos will stay open to U.S. players. Regardless, these slots tournaments typically have more participating players and higher guaranteed jackpot levels.

For example, in the month of November, this network was guaranteeing over $340,000 in tournament winnings – and that’s not even counting the video poker tournaments. Daily and weekly tournaments take place round the clock, while a “biggin” is usually had at least once a week. The big ones in November were a $150,000 guaranteed Thanksgiving free roll, $50,000 Weekender earlier in the month, and the Black Friday tournament which just wrapped up. Oh, and let’s not forget the one that’s going on right this second, and is still not too late to join.

Kicking off yesterday night at 8 p.m. was the “$75K See You in December” weekend madness tournament. Guaranteeing $75,000, it goes down until Tuesday, December 1 (8 pm EST) and costs just $13.99 to join. There’s a 325 stake with a 20 wager minimum on the Reel Deal slot machine to be eligible for cash prizes handed out down the line to 300 players. First place will nab $21,000, while the smallest award will be worth $20 in bonus bucks.
