With slot tournaments offering bigger and bigger prize pools it is clear that having some sort of strategy is a good idea. The first point to note is that there is no strategy that can guarantee you will win tournaments. This is because you can in no way later the results you will get when playing a slot machine - there is nothing you can do to change the odds of a slot game.
So what can you do to increase your chances of winning. The two biggest factors are speed of play and concentration. All tournaments have some sort of time limit and to stand a chance at winning you really need to have played the maximum amount of spins. This means you have to keep pressing the spin button as soon as the reels stop. Don't waste time by waiting for credits to count up and don't waste time getting annoyed on near miss spins.
It is also important to concentrate on what you are doing and not on other players or distractions. While it is quite normal to want to see how you are going compared to other players this just wastes time. Wait until the time is up to see what position you are in and don't let anything else such as phone call disturb you from your main aim - spinning those reels!
