How do I play an Online Slots Tournament?
Everyone who enters the tournament is given then same amount of starting chips and compete head to head to win virtual chips which at the end of the tournament are exchanged for a cash prize depending on your position.
There are essentially two types of tournament, mirroring those of online poker.
- Scheduled Games which often contain guaranteed prize pools (check out the $20,000 weekender tournaments at most Microgaming Casinos)
- Sit And Go Tournaments, whereby the tournament starts as soon as the number of required registrants is reached. They all then compete head to head until the tournament winner takes the pot, which is usually the combined entry fee of all of the players less a rake for the casino (much like that of a poker rake)
Many Online Casinos offer regular free tournaments, where entry is completely free, but you can walk away with a nice cash prize if you come in a good position. These are definitely worth playing, but there will always be masses of competition, as with all free tournaments.
Tips to Win
The more spins you make, the more likely you are to win more chips. Although all players are always given the same amount of chips, they can often be left with lots left over at the end. Do your best to make as many spins in the timeframe as possible to stand a better chance of winning more.
