Guide to Free Tournaments
Free slot tournaments have been popular at land-based casinos for years although they tend to be reserved for VIP players. Online however the tournaments are open to everyone so they are a great way of playing online without spending any money. As with most things that are free there can be a catch - the prize pools can sometimes be bonus money.
This means that when you win a tournament where bonus money is the prize you will have to play with that money on the regular slots before you can withdraw the money. This is might seem like a negative but it does offer you the chance to win a lot of free play at the casinos and as long as you meet the wagering requirements for the bonus money you can withdraw it.
Not all tournaments pay bonus money. In fact the biggest ever online tournament to date - The Grand Slam of Slots was free to enter and featured a prize pool of €1,400,000 with a €1,000,000 first place prize. This goes to show just how profitable freeroll tournament can be.
