New Games & Latest Tournament Info
Date Added: December 16, 2016
We can start by taking a look at a major online pokie tournament which is now well underway at all of our most highly recommended Microgaming casinos and then we can take a look at several new Playtech pokies that recently arrived in casinos. The most popular online pokie tournament that you can take part in this month is the Festive Frenzy Tournament (aka the Santa’s Wild Ride Tournament).
The game that you get to play on throughout this 32 day event is a Christmas themed online pokie from Microgaming called Santa’s Wild Ride (5 reels and 40 paylines). The jackpot on this game is fixed at 1,900,000.00 and you can win big prizes during the Free Spins Bonus Round thanks to Trailing Wilds, Expanding Wilds and Stacked Wilds. Also look out for Santa’s Special Gifts on reels 2 and 4. All you need to do is keep on spinning to climb your way up the leaderboard.
The initial buy-in fee of €10.00 (approximately NZ$14.70) will get you 9,000.00 starting coins and also 15 minutes of play time. However, if you crash out of the tourney early you can easily buy yourself back in. In fact, players can purchase up to as many as 999 Rebuys and up to as many as 4 Continue Plays. These rebuy options both cost the same amount as the initial entrance fee and they both give you the same amount of additional coins and play time (15 minutes and 9,000.00 coins).
You will be competing against more than 900 other players to win a share of the €100K prize pool (approximately NZ$147,000.00) and the lowest cash prize up for grabs starts from €125.00 (approximately NZ$184.00). 20 of the prizes are known as positional prizes and they will be awarded to the lucky winners who end up finishing in selected positions (see tournament description for more details). The top 80 players will also receive a guaranteed cash prize ranging from €250.00 (approx. NZ$368.00) to €10,000 (approx. NZ$14,700).
The reason why some of these values are displayed in Euros (€) is because the default currency at most Microgaming casinos is generally Euros. The exact cost of the buy-in and the exact amount that you can win will automatically be converted at the exact rate of exchange when you either spend money on the tourney or when you win a prize. In other words, you won’t miss out just because you are playing in New Zealand dollars.
