Jackpot City Casino Adds September Golf Pokie

September 10, 2014

 

One of the biggest golf events in the world happens during the month of September, so it's fitting that Jackpot City Casino is adding a golf-themed tournament pokie this month. This is a tournament version of the Argyle Open, one of the most prolific golf-based games in the online casino world. It was originally released about four years ago, and it has remained a popular pokie in the sports subgenre since then. Now it's the focus of tournament play as Microgaming has brought this game back to life in a way that captures one of the most sweeping trends in the pokies world.

The month of September is going to hold a $100,000 pokies tournament at Jackpot City Casino thanks to the newly added Argyle Open tournament game. This is the same as the normal version of the game with extra add-ons made just for the tournament environment. You'll start with a set number of chips, and this will be what you play with as you can choose bet sizes and things as that nature to try to come up with the right strategy to earn as many points with your tournament chips as you can. Get enough points and you'll earn a spot on the leaderboard for a piece of the six-figure prize pool.

James Ford is the head at Microgaming for multi-player games including their tournament series, and he said, "For us, it's all about timely content; delivering games to our operators' players that will get them excited and keep them engaged. September holds one of the biggest tournaments in the golfing calendar, so what better time to deliver the Argyle Open tournament pokie and the associated $100,000 network tournament! You don't have to be at Gleneagles to be a part of the golfing action!"

Jackpot City Casino has been really embracing the tournament game push that Microgaming has been about for more than a year. They are dedicated to adding at least one new tournament pokie each month, and the release for September is very appropriate. They have all kinds of cool events using these games which allows you to have a true tournament format instead of how some of the competition really just has leaderboard competitions that they try to pass off as tournaments. Overall, this is a cool game, and the $100,000 event they have going on this month just shows that somebody is going to get paid in a major way for playing it.
