Cherry Red Casino Blackjack Tournaments

Satellite tournaments are currently underway at Cherry Red Casino for their 7s Summer Series of Blackjack.

The $7,777 Summer Series Final will be held on October 1 2009 to decide the best blackjack tournament player at Cherry Red Casino. To take part in this great blackjack tournament you can either buy-in to final tournament for $110 or you can try your hand at the qualifying tournaments.

The qualifying tournaments, or satellites, consist of two levels. The first level is made up of initial daily satellite tournaments held on Mondays ($7 buy-in), Thursdays ($11 buy-in) and Saturdays ($22 buy-in), and more could be added depending on popularity.

Winners of the daily satellites will gain free entry to the Weekly Feeder Tournaments on Sunday. Players can also choose to buy-in to this tournament directly for $44. The top 5 players in the Weekly Feeder Tournaments will share in a $777 prize pool but only the top 3 will gain free entry to the $7,777 Summer Series Final tournament.

The format of the blackjack tournaments that Cherry Red Casino uses features multi tournaments rather than signal tournaments. Multi tournaments require that you beat a full table of other players in order to advance. Each player gets 20 seconds to act and if you do not act in time the software will either place a minimum bet for you or possibly disqualify you. For each round of blackjack the first player to act will change. While you play against the dealer’s hand, winning the tournament depends on you having more chips than the other players. A certain number of hands are played each level and at the end of a level players with the least amount of chips will be eliminated. Full tournament rules can be found at the Cherry Red Casino website.

To take part in this fantastic blackjack tournament series head on over to Cherry Red Casino to start honing your blackjack skills. If you are a new player you can take advantage of their 100% first deposit bonus with up to $777 free or even try the special blackjack first deposit bonus of 200% with up to $1,200 free.

New Slot Game: London Inspector

New London Inspector Slot

The new London Inspector slot is themed in the tradition of Sherlock Holmes and the gentleman Victorian detectives. With 5 reels and 25 paylines, the London Inspector slots are much like other popular slots games. They feature symbols of pocket watches, police helmets, police badges, lanterns, inspectors, and the A,K,Q,J,10 and 9 cards often found on slots games.

The pocket watch symbol is the wild card. It may act in place of any symbol other than the inspector scatter symbol. The inspector scatter symbol has multiple effects. For one, it pays out on the total bet whenever enough scatter symbols are on-screen. Secondly, it triggers the free spins feature when 3 or more inspector symbols are on-screen. Prizes are tripled during the free spins, and 5 more are added to the initial total anytime another inspector symbol appears in the free spins. Additionally, if a single payline gets 5 inspector symbols, it pays out 75 times the bet.

London Inspector is a new slot game from Real Time Gaming, one of the foremost providers of online casino software. You will be able to play the London Inspector slot at Cherry Red Casino, SlotsOasis and Rushmore Casino.

The dragons are the wild symbols of the Mystic Dragon slots. They appear on reels 2,3 and 4, substituting for anything other than the volcano scatter symbols. Prizes are doubled on paylines that are made by the dragon symbols.

The volcano scatter symbols trigger a free spin event when three or more are on-screen. Prizes are doubled during these free spins and dragon symbols are stacked while the free spins run, which can make for many high winning paylines paid at twice the normal amount.

The squid symbol acts as the wild card in the Sea Captain slots, substituting for any symbol other than the sea captain scatter symbol. It appears on reels 2 and 4, and prizes are doubled on paylines comprised of wild squid.

The sea captain scatter symbols pay well, but they also trigger 7 free spins when 3 or more of the symbols are on-screen. Prizes are tripled during those free games and if a sea captain comes up while the free games are playing, another free spin is added. The feature cannot be re-triggered in the free spins.

The Sea Captain slot is a new slot game from Real Time Gaming, one of the leading online casino software providers, and is coming soon to SlotsOasis, Cherry Red Casino and Rushmore Casino.

New Slots from Real Time Gaming

Real Time Gaming online casinos such as SlotsOasis, Cherry Red Casino and Rushmore Casino will be adding 5 new slot machines to their line-ups.

The new slots are all themed differently and play is not exactly the same for all. The new slots are the Loose Caboose slot, the Mystic Dragon slot, the Texan Tycoon slot, the Sea Captain slot and the London Inspector slot. All of these slots are 5 reel slots with 25 paylines, and many have special features that can lead to bigger prizes or free spins.

First of all, the Loose Caboose slot has an old time locomotive theme. The scatter caboose symbols can trigger a bonus game, the Cash Train. This bonus gives players free spins with prize multipliers and bonus prizes.

The Mystic Dragon slot has a high fantasy theme, with brave knights and fearsome dragons. Volcano symbols trigger free spins with prize multipliers, which can be enhanced with stacks of dragon symbols.

For those who dream about the heart of Texas, the Texan Tycoon slot is likely to appeal. Big rigs, oil, and cash are what this slot is about, with oil wells paying off big time by rewarding players with up to 25 free games and triple prize money on those spins.

If you yearn for a song of the sea, the Sea Captain slot should satisfy, with worms on hooks and a lighthouse to see. A free spins feature can be triggered when the sea captain symbols appear. Again, the prizes are tripled for those free spins.

Last but not least, the London Inspector slot is themed around a Victorian era policeman, quite clearly paying homage to Sherlock Holmes. Free spins, and tripled prizemoney for them are, also a feature of this slot machine.
