It is not uncommon for online poker players to find a platform offering a poker series. Top operators launch online poker tournament series on a regular basis to provide exciting action for their members. While this is the norm for poker, it is not the usual for online casino gaming. BetMGM is looking to change that. The online casino brand has launched the Casino Super Series, a tournament option spanning seven weeks and offering up to $1.5 million in prizes. The unique option is one that will certainly help the brand stand out from the crowd!
What is the Casino Super Series?
The Casino Super Series will run at BetMGM from now through September 27. Players can take part in weekly leaderboard competitions that offer up $125,000 in prize money. There is also an overall leaderboard that will take score throughout the series, offering another $500,000 in prize money. The grand prize winner of the series gets $250,000!
Each week during the series, players will find the online casino site has featured games. Players must opt in to the series to take part and then play the featured games to earn points. This week, the games include Blackjack X-Change, Slingo Carnival, Slingo Classic and Slingo Extreme, among other titles.
Next week, players who are fans of table game swill find Live Dealer Roulette and Live Dealer Blackjack on the list of available games. Each week offers something different so all players will find games that they enjoy.
What About Payouts?
Because there are so many prizes up for grabs, you are probably wondering about payouts. Each week, the top 1,000 players will earn a prize. This starts at $50,000 for first and goes down to $5 for the 1,000th finisher.
The big money can be found within the overall leaderboard. This is one that will add points from every week to see who the overall players are. First place for this is $250,000 while second earns $100,000. Third place takes home $50,000.
The only downside is the prize money is free play. So, players will need to play the funds. However, the site has decided to allow the free play to be unrestricted. This means that players can win with the free play money and there are no restrictions for cashing out. Funds can be withdrawn immediately.
A unique twist to the contest is that the weekly leaderboard will include Lucky Spots. 10 Lucky Spots will be predetermined and offer the players of these spots $1,000 in extra free play! Certain weeks will also offer free spins, so players can earn even more opportunity to play at BetMGM.
This new series is sure to bring in players to the BetMGM brand. It will be interesting to see by October, just how much of an impact the series had on traffic numbers as well as revenues generated with the September revenue reports. We should see a nice increase for the brand as the series generates a lot of buzz among participants!
