$10 Million Giveaway

The newsletter specifically states, “Week one of the $10 Million Giveaway has come and gone and we managed to give out an incredible $1.2 Million! We hope you were happy with your share from the weekly progressive draw.” This means for every $50 deposited between Friday, August 19th and October 12th, player’s share of winnings will increase. Therefore, players can control the amount of money they receive from this gigantic promotion.

Fighting Fish Online Slot Game

Another promotion that recently ran was based on the Fighting Fish online slot game. The symbols are comically crafted to feature an underwater boxing match and feature free spins and gamble games. Also, the jackpot is fixed at $5,000 coins. The promotional period began on Saturday, August 20th and ended the following day. On each of the two days, ten players were randomly selected to win $100.

Silver Fang Online Slot Game

The third major promotion offered by the casino is being played on the Silver Fang online slot game which features 1,000 coin jackpot and betting denominations of $0.01 to $0.05. The graphics and sounds give an eerie feeling which adds to the excitement. The promotion began Saturday, August 20th and will end Thursday, August 25th. The top five bettors each day during that period will receive $100 into their account.

Biggest Recent Wins

On a side note, during the last week the biggest wins at the casino have been on Multihand Spanish Blackjack and on Aces and Faces video poker.

Blackjack Ballroom Promotions

February 24th, 2011  |  Published in Casino Tips

As the leading brand of the Casino Rewards Group, Blackjack Ballroom is offering a Carnival promotion. The weekly newsletter states; “This week the annual Carnival of Venice is taking place in the famous Italian floating city. The Venetians don their masks and dance around in glitzy costumes under a rainbow of confetti, eating traditional fried sweets such as fritole and crostoli.”

The Carnival Celebration

The object of this promotion is of course to attract new players and give current players a different challenge. However, it is also to get players in the mood for the upcoming Carnival celebration. Therefore, the promotion is based on the slot game from Microgaming entitled, “Carnival.”

Carnival the Game

The game highlights the fun and excitement of Carnival festivals using sharp, vivid colors and beautiful décor. It features five reels with nine paylines offering players several chances to acquire payouts. The maximum jackpot prize is 5,000 coins which can be obtained when five Carnival icons align in a payline. Other payouts are awarded with the wild and scatter symbols.


To be eligible, players had to wager on the selected slot game during the promotional period. Therefore, they were required to hold a real money account and deposited at least $20 during the promotional period. 10 players were selected each day and were awarded $100 a piece.


The other promotion featured the Microgaming slot, Moonshine. On each day of the promotion from Saturday, February 19th to Thursday, February 24th, the top five bettors in the game will receive $100 each.

The Trivia Question

Additionally, every week at Blackjack Ballroom online casino, players have the opportunity to answer a trivia question through the newsletter. From those that answer the question correctly, three participants will be selected to win $100 each. The trivia questions vary and do not pertain to a specific topic. They are more similar to brain teasers than trivia questions.

Blackjack Ballroom online casino is an excellent place to wager. The casino offers a variety of games with the highlight being on slots. The casino is licensed and regulated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and showcases the Safe and Fair seal released by eCOGRA.

These promotions are a great way to earn a few extra dollars, especially if you bet a lot. The trivia question is a fun way for the casino to differentiate their company from the typical promotions offered by competitors. If you are looking for a new casino, give Blackjack Ballroom and associated Casino Rewards Group a try.

How to Look Like a Pro on Your First Trip to the Casino

March 24th, 2010  |  Published in Casino Tips

Everyone was a beginner at some point in his or her poker career, but hardly anyone wants to look like a beginner. The first time you walk in to a casino can be daunting- even if you have played casino games online for years. However, you can ease your nerves and give the appearance of a seasoned professional by following a few simple steps, starting from the moment you walk in to the casino.

Get a Rewards Card

Most casinos offer a rewards card for players. These rewards cards monitor how much you are spending and playing, and turn that in to different rewards from the casino. These rewards can come in the form of free play or comps for buffets or hotel room stays. Reward cards are free and no one should go without one. The first thing you should do when you get to the casino is to head to the front desk and sign up for your rewards card.

Find out what Poker Games are being played

Some casinos feature large screens that scroll down to tell you all of the poker games being played at the casino. Other casinos have a list kept at the front desk or with the Brush (the person you will register for a poker table with.) Locate this list of games and decide what you want to play.

Get in Line for a Poker Game

Most casinos require poker players to sign in before they can join a poker game. Find the Brush- the person responsible for keeping track of the poker table waiting list- and sign up. If the poker game you want to play is full, the Brush will put you on a waiting list. When there is an open spot at the table, your name will be called, and you can join in.

Practice Good Etiquette at the Poker Table

Once you are at the poker table, it is important that you practice good etiquette. Follow the betting rules set by the table. Keep your emotions in check and do not disturb the dealer or the other players, and be sure to tip the dealer through out the game. Not following poker etiquette is the easiest way to look like an amateur.

Your first trip to the casino should be an exciting time. By following a few simple guidelines, you have nothing to worry about and can relax and enjoy your poker.
