It’s that time of the year again when we receive our 13th cheques and bonuses (if we’re lucky) or we allocate a little extra to entertainment spending from our budgets, but if you’re wondering where the best places to play online and splash a little extra cash this Festive Season are, then check out our recommendations below. We’ve included both Microgaming and Playtech powered casino recommendations for those who are ardent fans of each.
Microgaming Christmas Holiday Casino Recommendation:
Roxy Palace is making our list of highly recommended casinos to blow your bonus at this Festive Season, largely because they have always been an excellent casino, but this year have made added efforts to increase not only their promotional offerings but bonus amounts as well which is very impressive. Not to mention their various tournament schedules, loyalty offerings and more. We like to think of Roxy Palace as the little casino that could and we can guarantee that in playing here this holiday, you won’t be disappointed. New players can pick up a €/£/$1,250 welcome bonus on their first three deposits and existing players will benefit from the loyalty rewards and promotional offers like the Santa’s Millions Promotion where you can win your share of 10,000,000 loyalty points. So don’t delay, get on over to Roxy Palace, it’s a great place to be this time of year.
Playtech Christmas Holiday Casino Recommendation:
Our Playtech favourite these holidays is definitely Europa Casino Online. Why? Not only are they a high quality, outstanding casino to begin with, but because they just do the whole Christmas theme so well! At present their logo features Santa and their graphics are experiencing light snow…it’s not just these touches that make Europa Casino a special place to play though! They also have alot to offer players including a €/£/$2,400 bonus, the Beach Life Progressive Jackpot which is nearing the $5 million mark, not to mention a daily bonus of up to €25 free from December to 1 January 2012 on each deposit you make. So if you’re in the mood to celebrate and want to do so in awesome, Christmassy style, play at Europa Casino now.
And from us at Yours4Money, thanks for another great year and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Earlier this week World Series of Poker officials announced that 22 players have pledged their commitment to a $1 million buy-in for a WSOP tournament, making this one of the most expensive poker tournaments in history but also one of the most lucrative with the top prize yielding $8.89 million at just 22 players! This is a staggering $173,000 more than the recent German winner, Pius Heinz earned for his main event victory last month.
According to WSOP spokesperson Seth Palansky, an additional seven players join the tournament, this would put the prize money above the $12 million mark which incidentally is the highest recorded poker win ever, claimed by Jamie Gold after defeating 8,772 other players in the no-limit Texas Hold’em main event held in 2006.
The $1 million buy-in for the latest tournament includes a charity donation of 11% but does not include the usual 10% rake that the WSOP usually takes for hosting the event. Instead Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte will be organising the tournament on behalf of his charity, One Drop which is a Montreal based non-governmental organization.
According to those in the know, committed entrants include some of the most famous names in poker and the gambling industry including Daniel Negreanu, Tom Dwan, Johnny Chan, Jonathan Duhamel, Bobby Baldwin (MGM Resorts International exec and 4 time gold bracelet winner) as well as billionaire Treasure Island casino owner Phil Ruffin.
With this kind of a line up as well as such huge sums of money at stake, this will definitely be one poker tournament you don’t want to miss!
