Slots are without a doubt the biggest gambling success story of the last hundred years; there is simply no arguing with that. Can you think of another gambling game that has had nearly as much of a triumph? Even if you can, we would like to respectfully say you are wrong. Seriously, slots have gone from obscure corners in Californian saloons, all the way to being the world’s bona fide No. 1 gambling avenue. It’s crazy!
Oh yes, in the year 2020 you can bet your bottom dollar that pretty much everybody has spun the reels of online games at least once. It is a huge triumph for the countless developers that have strived to make sure the industry has reached the point it has today, and now they are reaping the rewards. Most other famous activities have ended up with their own tournaments, with everything from football to axe throwing getting a competition. Is it the same for online slots?
Well, are they?
Well, are slot tournaments a thing then? When you consider the popularity of these games it should strike you as fairly unlikely that there wouldn’t be a tournament, and this sentiment is correct, because there are indeed slot tournaments popping up all around the world. Obviously, they aren’t nearly as popular as things like Poker tournaments, but they do exist.
Now, one thing to mention about this is that slot tournaments were pretty much non-existent before the emergence of online slots, and they are therefore a fairly new phenomenon.
How a slot tournament tends to work
If you are at a loss to imagine how a slot tournament would work we don’t blame you, because online slots are generally a quintessentially single player endeavour. Well, the way in which it works is less to do about jackpots and more about accumulating points. This means that the way you play a slot in a tournament can differ slightly than if it’s just you on your own.
So, you accumulate as many points as you possibly can, and these are compiled into a league-like table, the winner is the person with the largest amount of points. Simples!

After this most tournaments require a buy-in, and once you have paid this you are ready to go!
