Upon paying the entry fee, players in a Casino Tournament are credited with a predetermined number of chips to start. This is a tournament balance that is separate from your real money balance, and works similar to the way in which you buy into a poker tournament and are given chips to participate with.
Each tournament has set dates during which players can participate and once the tournament ends the winning accounts are credited.
The details for each tournament can be found by double clicking on the specific listing. Here you will find "Details" (dates, entry fee, winning conditions, payouts, rules) and "Info" (leaderboard).
Note: In the event of a tie, the place and winnings will go to the player with the most wins.
