Welcome to one of the greatest innovations in online casino gambling -
online slots tournaments. Playing slots games against other players is
definitely all the rage and if you consider how these tournaments work it's not
hard to see why. A few online casino have been running slots tournaments for
some time, but they weren't as popular as their land based counterparts. Some of
the major casino software providers have improved their tournament software and
the value of these tournaments have also increased.
Slots tournaments are quite similar to their land based counterparts. You
have probably noticed those roped-off areas in land casinos, full of rows and
rows of slot machines with players winning as if their lives depend on it. The
reason players are burning out the spin button is that slot tournaments in land
casinos generally awarded prizes based on the most wagers or the most won.
Prizes takes on all forms, including cash, merchandise, holidays, meals and just
about anything. Some tournaments allow you to win prizes over and above the
regular wins on the games (always check if the tournament you enter pays out
your actual wins).
Certain tournaments charge an entry fee, some are totally free, and some are
only open to VIP players who have accumulated certain VIP points at the casino
(there are typically invite-only and often only open to high rollers.)
Online slots tournaments are quite similar and have a few advantages over
their land based counterparts. In land based tournaments it is often impossible
to know where you are currently placed. Most online tournaments give you regular
updates on your current position.
In this section of our website we will give you detailed information on how
tournaments work, but here is a very quick overview. Once you have enrolled for
the tournament (how you do that depends on the casino software, you are required
to be logged on tournament start time, and open up the selected game. Each
player in the tourney get the same amount of credits. For example, you may get
1000 credits and twenty minutes to play. This again depends on the tournament
format. There are free roll tournaments, guaranteed tournaments and sit and go
tournaments. More on that elsewhere in our guide.
Online slots tournaments are great fun and offer excellent
entertainment value and the chance to win some good money!
