Online Vegas Makin’ News With Bonuses and Tournaments

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

If you like online casino slots, blackjack and video poker tournaments, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Online Vegas. Hosting a wealth of tournaments, many of which are either free to join or cost chump change (excuse my French), Online Vegas is an approved and highly recommended online casino here at OCS. Not that it’s hard to “make news” in the world of online gambling – what with just about every play-for-money site out there billing their welcome bonus as “news” – Online Vegas certainly qualifies for newsworthy status right now.

Yes, Online Vegas does indeed offer a generous welcome bonus to new players. Worth over $5,000 on the first 10 deposits ($500 just on the first), it is one of the best out there. In addition to this, Online Vegas offers a fantastic loyaly promotion giving up to 20% cashback on losses and weekly deposit bonuses. In short, over $11,000 is given away here every month – no matter if players opt for reload bonuses or not.

But what’s even better about Online Vegas – if you ask me (thanks for asking) – is the deluge of free tournaments taking place here all the time. In fact, there is a free slot tournament offered here every day. Of course, what’s the value in a free tournament if there isn’t plenty of cash to be won? Well, that’s where Online Vegas’ reputation and experience comes into play. In business for several years running, Online Vegas has managed to attract quite the following – so much so that it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say it is one of the most popular U.S. facing online casinos in business today.

You see, with more players participating in tournaments, Online Vegas is able to guarantee more…well…guaranteed winnings. For the month of September this tally was worth over $425,000 in guaranteed tournament winnings. In fact, it’s still not too late to stake a share of the prize money this month. The last of the Weekender Madness tournaments guarantees $30,000 in winnings, and goes down from Friday, September 24th to Tuesday, September 28th.

And September isn’t a fluke either. It’s been like this at Online Vegas for as long as I can remember. Granted, my memory isn’t the best (no thanks to my…err…habits), however, for at least the last two years Online Vegas has been guaranteeing hundreds of thousands of dollars in tournament winnings every month. Fueled by a large wide area progressive jackpot network that includes the likes of Go Casino and Crazy Slots (linked via Vegas Technology’s CFG fairness certified software platform), the winnings here are for real.

Naturally, the slots tournaments are the most popular and more frequent, yet there is also a great selection of daily video poker and blackjack tournaments paying out pot percentage winnings, as well as guaranteed bonus bucks. Everything from pot percentage 24 hour $0.99 Blackjack tournaments to three-day Jacks or Better video poker tournaments are available round the clock. So what are you waiting for? Don’t say more news, because let me tell you brothers and sisters (to quote my cousin from the backwoods of Tennesse) it ain’t get no better than this.

$75,000 See You in December Online Slots Tournament

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.
