Microgaming have now introduced a fortnightly freeroll event on the old favourite Thunderstruck 2 slot. This will be an ongoing tournament and can be played at my favourite Microgaming casinos Nedplay Casino and 32Red Casino (in the download versions).
It’s called a ’20k Tournament’ but this eludes to the total tournament prize money which is spread amongst the Top 10 players, the winner receiving $4k and the tenth, $500. Additionally, 11th down to 100th splits 5,000 in bonus chips ranging from $400 for 11th. down to $5 for 100th. There are up to 999 continues allowed which give 12 minutes/12k in coins at a max stake of 300 coins.
Seeing as the continues cost $2.50 each, the winner of the 4k will make $1500 and second $500. So effectively if there are (as usual!) several big punters chasing the top prizes you will only really be taking the gamble of spending $2.5k of your money hoping to hit a top-two position.
Without multitudes of re-buys you may hit a minor bonus cash position with one big lucky hit, but otherwise don’t be fooled by the ‘freeroll‘ label – a decent prize certainly won’t be ‘free’….
For information on whether it is a good idea to enter freerolls with a rebuy option, check out the article examining Rebuys and Continues or for new tournament players, see how to take part and what’s involvedin the Microgaming slot freerolls article which has all the info you’ll need to get playing.
