Tournament Worth $250,000

When it comes to playing slots on the Web, you would
think that an online casino going by the name of
VIP Slots would offer something unique in the area
of slots action. Me personally, I would think that a
large variety of different types of machines would be
available, not to mention special slots bonuses and a
comprehensive tournament schedule. And not to sound too
cheesy and promotional, the bottom line is that VIP
Slots Casino delivers on all fronts.
VIP Slots has been an approved online casino here at
OCS for some time now. As it is our policy to constantly
check up on approved sites and update our reviews with
new and pertinent information, we more than did a
triple-take when we saw VIP Slots most recent tournament
schedule. In addition to their normal lineup of
tournaments guaranteeing thousands in winnings every
week, VIP Slots is currently hosting daily free roll
tournaments (with $2 rebuys) that award the top ten
daily finishers a free entry in VIP Slots' March Madness
tournament during the month of, you guessed it - March.
The tournament is actually being sponsored by EH New
Ventures, which is the parent company of Vegas
Technology Software's most popular, longstanding online
casino network. Consisting of a poker room and six
online casinos, including
Super Slots casinos (all reviewed and listed here at
OCS), EH New Ventures is certainly hoping to draw up
lots of traffic at its newest site - the aforementioned
VIP Slots Casino.
What makes this tournament newsworthy is the fact
that it is giving out an unprecedented $250,000 in
guaranteed tournament winnings. The only other slots
tournament to dish out more was the $500,000 World
Series of Slots tournament hosted by Microgaming's the
Jackpot Factory (five distinct online casinos). The only
catch, so to speak, was that since the Jackpot Factory
is so popular (they were still open to U.S. players back
then), there was a flood of players vying for their
share of the tournament winnings.
And not to say that EH Gaming Ventures isn't popular.
In fact they have been one of the most popular online
casino networks with U.S. players for some time now.
Let's just say that many players believe that
Microgaming has gotten too big in some respects. As for
March Madness, it will produce 5,625 different winners
over the course of the tournament - one month. First
place will take home $100,000; second place with nab
$25,000; third place: $15,000, fourth place: $10,000;
and so on down the line.

free roll tournaments taking place right now,
