PostPosted: Sun Aug 15, 2004 4:00 pm - Daily Tournaments have now started!
_____________________________________________________________
I've added two more points systems called Tournament Points and Booster Points. You will notice these amounts on posts and in your profile. The Memberlist will also show these and can be sorted/ordered to show who has the most points.

These have been added for the tournaments that have just started now. There are currently three games at FairCasinos that you can play with your Credits. These are: Jacks or Better Video Poker, Roulette and Slots. Daily Tournaments will be held for these games but the slots tournament will not start until a bit later.

For simplicity, the slots game will be excluded at first and the prizes will be for the highest scores each day on the Roulette and Video Poker games.

The poker high score table and roulette high score table will show the current standings.

At the moment, winners are calculated simply on the highest scores achieved in the games. I may change the way it is done later so that it is calculated on the average score a player achieves (which means it takes the number of attempts into consideration). Soon there will also be slots tourneys.

The prizes will be FairCasinos Credits to the value of:
    100 x #players for First Place,
    50 x #players for Second Place,
    25 x #players for Third Place.

    (#players= number of players who played the game and qualified for the tournament)

    Change of rules from 16th October: If there are less than 10 Participants, then the number of Credits awarded is 1000 for First Place, 500 for Second Place and 250 for Third Place.


Winners will also receive Tournament Points of 100 for first place, 50 for second place and 25 for third place. This will roughly rank the best players based on their overall tournament performance and also keep count of the total Booster Points a player has been awarded (see below).

Winners will also receive Booster Points to the same value as the Tournament Points awarded. Booster Points let you exceed the maximum Prize Draw Entries by up to the amount of the Booster Points. For example, if you have 100 Booster Points you will be able to buy 200 Prize Draw Entries rather than the usual maximum of 100. This will double your chances of winning the Prize Draw. You can think of the Booster Points as a percentage increase in the number of Prize Draw Entries you can buy above the 100 minimum. Note that they do not boost the number of tokens bought but allow you to buy more than you will normally be allowed.

Booster Points are removed when used but it also has a minimum value which is 10 times the number of activated referrals you have. Only excess Booster Points above this minimum will be removed from your Booster Points total. So if you buy 200 Prize Draw Entries and have a minimum Booster Points level of 60 (six referrals), you will only be using (i.e. removing) 40 of your Booster Points.


Booster Points are the most important as they will allow you to greatly increase your chances of winning the Prize Draw.

_____________________________________________________________
There are two tournaments running each day at the moment. These are for Video Poker and Roulette. You will need Flash Player 6 or later to play the games (you probably have it installed already).

The tournaments run for 24 hours from midnight each day Eastern Standard Time. When one finishes, the next one starts immediately. All times posted on the high score table are in EST too.

The winners of each tournament can be seen on the score tables and they are also posted on this thread each day automatically when the tournament has ended.

SIDE NOTE: The automatic process mentioned above will only start when someone checks the high score table for the game the next day so I am also awarding 50 FairCasinos Credits for the first person to view the high score table after a tournament has ended. There is a total of 100 Credits each day available to the first users to check the high scores after each tournament. 50 Credits for each of the tournament games. The two links for the high score tables are located on the post above. If the announcement of the winners of a tournament hasn't been made on this thread/topic, it means these Credits are still up for grabs because the announcement is made automatically when the high score table is checked when a tournament has ended.

Sounds like a great idea and lots of fun!

Thanks for another fun thing here for us. You know, I was just telling someone last night that I bet there would be more people participating in the $25 draws and other great things you have here.. if it was just a little easier to navigate through.

When I first joined, I had a heck of a time figuring out how to get back into the forum area here. And if not for having it explained to me by Tricon, I doubt I would have gotten the $25 Draw instructions (exchanging credits and buying only 100 etc) on my own right away.

I do love this place though. I think it's a great place here. But I think the menu or navigation is not real simplified to new people.. and what's all here and going on. icon_smile.gif

Keep up the great work ! Tournaments here I come!

Thanks for the comments. I need to add a proper FAQ on the site because a lot of things have been added. People should be able to work most things out if they do a search on the forum.

It is a bit more complicated to enter the prize draw than it should be due to having to exchange Credits to Prize Draw Tokens first, but that is the way it will stay for now.

Don't forget to press the 'save score' button to record your high scores on the games! There is sometimes a mysterious problem with the Video Poker the very first time you try it (it doesn't always load properly and you lose the 50 Credits) but it works after that as long as it is cached in your browser.

Ok I take that all back. Did you just change the main page?

Or maybe I'm just blind. I just seen that it says FORUM on the left. I don't remember seeing that before.

That was always there before. Can you try and save some scores on the games as only Tricon11 is up on the high score tables at the moment?

FairCasinos Edit: Ooops, you may have noticed that the places were actually reversed so there is a small bug (Tricon11 came first in fact and then Pazuzu). I'll fix everything before the next one is announced!

Congrats Fair on the update and new tourny..icon_smile.gif.It will be gret fun to play in these and hopefully you'll introduce a new slot game that will be cool to play..icon_smile.gif..Tell me tho..Do we still have to use up 50 points in order to enter each time we want to play in these tourny's??

I imagine this is not the case as the top prize is only 100 points so the gain wold only be 50 points in reality..Please advise on this one..icon_smile.gif

Good luck all..icon_smile.gif

Hi,

The games still use 50 FairCasinos Credits but the winnings are also returned to you! The 50 is just like the amount you deposit and anything you win is returned when you save the score. You will only lose the 50 Credits deposit if you lose them in the game.

The number of Credits awarded to the winner is 100 times the number of players in the tournament. If there are 10 players on the scoreboard, you will get 1000 Credits.


At the moment it's quite easy to get Credits though by reviewing/rating some casinos or answering some polls (500 Credits each time). Registering a faircasinos.com email at casinos will get you 25 Prize Draw Tokens for each one which can be exchanged into 625 Credits. You can also get up to 50 Credits for each post on the board (depending on length) for up to 10 posts a day (another 500 per day).

Not at the moment. You need to come in the top three of either tournament to get them or refer some people to join the forum. The tournaments are on everyday and because it is a new thing and there aren't many players, it shouldn't be too difficult to get Booster Points.

The tournaments are always on and end/start at midnight EST each day. Just make sure you save some sort of score in the games by pressing the 'save score' button or your score won't be recorded and you will lose the Credits. You can try as many times as you want but you need to have at least 50 Credits.
