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.

Slots Galore Casino is our top choice for entering the Summer Slots Series

It’s that time of year again, folks. No, I’m not talking about Spring cleaning, although since it’s still technically Spring, there’s still time for you to get out the duster and mop. Who am I kidding, right? Anyhow, this being the OCS gambling blog and all, what I am referring to is the wildly popular, annual $500,000 Summer Slots Series hosted by English Harbour Gaming Ventures (EHGV.

The flagship online casino operator of Vegas Technology Software-powered gaming destinations, EHGV manages some of the most popular U.S.A. online casinos in business today, including Slots Galore, Millionaire Casino, Super Slots and English Harbour Casino herself. Boasting all of the credentials that make for a safe and fair place to spin the reels, EHGV casinos make for a solid place to grab some free casino bonus cash, and certainly for taking part in online slots tournaments with guaranteed cash winnings.

SummerSlotsSeries2In the case of the aforementioned $500,000 Summer Slots Series of tournaments, obviously, there is lots of cash up for grabs, albeit not all at once. The way the tournament works is that it is broken down into four stages. Over the course of all four stages running from June 1 to August 31st, a total of $500,000 will be give out to over 1,500 players.

Stage 1 is taking place right now, continuing through the month of June and guaranteeing $100,000 in cash winnings. The breakdown of winnings dishes out $50,000 to first place, $20,000 to second place, $7,500 to third, $2,500 to forth and fifth, and $1,000 to the remaining top ten finishers. In total, the top 275 players will receive winnings (both casino credits and loyalty points). Tournament action takes place on the enormously entertaining “Funky Chicken” video slots, with entry fee and rebuys (up to 500) costing $10. Each rebuy qualifies for 75 credits.

Stage 2 runs for the entire month of July and ups the payout from $100K to $150,000. This time around, all action is hosted on the “Shaaark!” video slot (another fun and entertaining bonus slot) with the same entry and rebuy rules as Stage 1. Building on Stage 1, the top 500 finishers will receive a payout; however, with more money to give away, first place receives $60,000, second gets $25,000, third place bags $10,000 and all other finishing spots receive double the amounts awarded leaderboard placers in Stage 1.

Both Stage 3 and Stage 4 fittingly take place throughout the hottest month of the year – August. In terms of betting action, Part 3 is where it’s at, as Part 4 is simply a $75,000 cash award which goes to the player with the highest combined balance over all three tournaments (June-August). Part 3, which takes place on the “California Gold” slots, is the most generous stage of the Summer Slots Series, giving out a total of $175,000 in winnings and extending the leaderboard from the top 500 finishers to the top 800 scorers. First place walks away with $75,000, 2nd-5th place get the same as Stage 2, 6th-10th get an additional $500 ($3,000 each), while the next 190 finishers get the same payout as that given in Stage 2. Those players who make the leaderboard seated from 201st-800th place receive $25 each.

It is never too late to join the Summer Slots Series. In other words, even if one of the tournaments is already underway, you can join at any time. Furthermore, you will always be eligible to receive the Stage 4 payout of $75,000. All it takes is a big jackpot win, albeit seasoned tournament players will tell you the more you wager, the better your chances of winning at slots tournament.

While all of English Harbour’s online casinos make for a solid place to open an account, Slots Galore offers the best welcome bonus in our opinion, not to mention 25% reloads on all further deposits. The first deposit bonus is worth 100% up to $1,000 Free and has a low 20x play-through. Furthermore, all games (except European Roulette) count toward the wager requirement – at varying degrees, of course – with tournament play wagers also helping meet the play-through. Needless to say, many other online casinos prohibit tournament play with bonus money.
