Energy Casino made waves in the online casino universe when they launched in 2013. The casino is licensed in Malta, where they are based as well as by the UK Gambling Commission. Unlike a lot of casinos that offer Novomatic games, players will also find NetEnt and Microgaming slots along with others. The live casino is powered by Extreme Live Gaming and includes Ra Roulette and Dolphin Roulette for fans of Greentube/Novomatic slots.
The website offers players a lot of variety and interesting features. the EnregyBet sportsbook is only a click away and there's even a shop where players can pick up branded clothing, eyewear, accessories, and valuable collectibles with Energy Points. But one of the coolest features on the site is their tournaments.
Under the Energy Tournaments tab, players will find a list of tournaments. The line-up changes every week but will usually include weekend challenges, and themed tournaments like The Wild Side, Hot Slots, Back to the Classics, and specialties such as Comic Heroes. There is always something fun going on in the tournament lobby.
The first one we checked out was the current Back to the Classics tournament of the week. The tournament had a 90's theme with nice neon pastel splash art. The games available for play were all 90's or at least retro-oriented like Neon Staxx, Back to the 70s, and captain Venture. The top prize for the free to enter tournament was 250 free spins. Even placing in the 250th position would net you 5 free games. All games were awarded on Stunning Hot 20 Deluxe.
Low rollers have the same chance to win the tournament as any high roller thanks to what they call equalized scoring. Winners are worked out based on the biggest win they have in a series of 20 spins - but - the rating is proportional to bet value. A player betting €0.20 who wins €1 is ranked in the same place as a player who bets €20 and wins €100. That levels the playing field so everyone has the same chance to win in the end.
The next tournament was the Weekend Energy Challenge. Weekly prizes in this big tournament total €1000. The top player gets €500 + 200 Free Spins, 2nd position: €300 + 150 Free Spins, and the third highest scoring winner receives €125 + 130 Free Spins.
Again, only wins on certain games included in the tournament listing count, but in this one the more you bet, there more points you earn.
Every month the top scores from the weekend tournaments are tallied to determine the ultimate winner. 500 lucky winners receive anything from Samsung Gear, Energy Casino gadgets, and 500 free spins to the bottom tier winners that get 5 free games.
Other tournaments are structured similarly and winnings from the tournaments are subject to wagering requirements. There is no maximum amount that can be cashed out from the free spins or tournament cash winnings. To enter, simply log into your Energy casino account and click the tournaments tab.
