Online Casino Games Tournaments

Casino games are always fun and full of excitement, and online tournaments are designed to add a dose of adrenaline with the element of competition between participants. In this guide we will try to summarise the features of the main online casino game tournaments.

One thing all tournaments have in common is the payment of an entry fee to obtain a number of credits to use. Participants are then given a time frame, or alternatively a number of games, to compete directly against their opponents.

At the end of the allotted time or matches, the players with the most credits accumulated will win a share of the prize pool and shares of the winnings will be awarded according to the order in which they are ranked.

Although these are the most common mechanisms of online tournaments, you should always be sure to read the rules, as sometimes there can be important variations.

How to choose an online gaming tournament site

Most internet tournaments, such as online poker tournaments and slots tournaments, are characterised by large prize pools and strong competition. The motivation for gaming rooms to organise online tournaments is very often to attract new users through the emulative element and thus offer the games in a sporting way.

For players, the advantage is that they can enjoy themselves by paying small entry fees, with the ambition of being able to access rich prize pools in conditions where the element of luck is limited thanks to the large number of rounds that are played against other participants.

As a result of these considerations, when signing up for a site that offers online gaming tournaments at the most popular slots sites, it would be necessary to make a choice based on parameters that mediate personal preferences with the necessary features that every online casino should possess.

While there is little question about personal taste, we can advise users to consider certain essential aspects before registering. Let’s take a look at the points to consider.

Frequency of online gaming tournaments

Type of tournaments offered (esports tournaments, online poker tournaments, online slots tournaments)

  • Average amount of prize money
  • Loyalty programme of online games tournaments
  • Promotions and bonuses
  • Available payment methods
  • Brand reputation
  • AAMS ADM licence

Types of online tournaments

When it comes to online gaming tournaments https://777pokies.casino/tournaments you are exploring a territory full of options and variations. Generally online tournaments are organised for the most popular games but also for some newer ones such as blackjack tournaments, mixed casino games tournaments and live casino tournaments.

Generally, tournaments of popular games are offered several times a day, and special tournaments with guaranteed prize pools are organised weekly or monthly. For popular disciplines such as online poker, competitions are organised on a cyclical basis, starting at the same time and forming part of a series of events that compete for weekly, monthly or even yearly rankings; the winners of these rankings receive attractive prizes.

At certain times of the year, special tournaments are added to the casino schedule for major holidays such as Christmas, Easter or the summer holidays. Of course, during these times there are also tournaments for less popular games such as Sic Bo online, Baccarat and Roulette.

It also happens that there are tournaments organised for the launch of a new game added to the casino, or tournaments reserved exclusively for players who have reached particular goals proposed by the operators and for which entry is free, as well as being by invitation only.

Games available in online casino tournaments

As mentioned above, there are many games for which you can find online tournaments, so let’s try to list some of them with a brief description:

Slot machine tournaments

They can be for a specific slot machine or they can cover several titles at once; sometimes they are organised by certain software providers (e.g. NetEnt, Playtech or Microgaming). Even if they are slot machines, jackpots are deactivated during a tournament.

Online poker tournaments

The largest number of online poker tournaments are poker tournaments, where thousands of players compete for the ultimate prizes in Texas Hold’em, Omaha, HORSE and many other variations. Another type of online poker tournament is that of video poker tournaments, which is less common to encounter and is a distinct category.

Blackjack tournaments

Blackjack, which is one of the most popular games in online casinos, is also played in tournaments where players sitting at the table compete against the dealer to win individual hands and against other participants to accumulate more credits in order to eliminate their opponents from the competition.

Roulette tournaments

These games are very similar to blackjack tournaments, but there are many variations: French roulette, American roulette, European roulette and alternative roulette.

Live Casino Tournaments

The same considerations made for blackjack and roulette apply to live casino tournaments as well, the only difference being that tournaments are streamed live and can be structured for any of the titles present in the live casino rooms, i.e. blackjack, roulette, baccarat, casino hold’em etc.

Mixed games tournaments

Involve a number of different games in the same structure in which you participate in a pre-established manner and at pre-established times. For these special tournaments, it is always best to read the rules carefully in order to understand how to participate and how to win.
