Why Are Slot Tournaments Super Exciting?

Published

on

 

More and more people are taking part in slot tournaments. But what are they and why is there so much excitement about them?

What are slot tournaments?

Let’s start by seeing what slot tournaments are. Basically, a land-based or an online casino will make an announcement that they are organizing a slot machine tournament where each player will get a certain number of credits and a limited time during which they can play. Many players compete against each other and the person who, in the end, has the highest score is the winner.

How do they work?

To take part in a slot tournament, one has to register for it. Whether it’s in an online casino or a traditional establishment, there is usually an entry fee. How high the cost typically depends on the size of the competition but there are also tournaments that are free. The entry fee provides players with the credit necessary to play the game.

In terms of the tournament itself, players need to log into their online casino accounts or visit the casino where it’s taking place. They will then be given a set time of, for example, 15 minutes. Everyone plays at the exact same time and has the same time limit. The goal is to spin the reels as many times as possible in the given time in order to win a prize. Some games are won, others lost – just like when playing slots outside of a tournament. However, the number of credits a player has in the end, is what matters.

What can players win?

When it comes to prizes, it’s important to note that the winner of the tournament is not the only person getting rewarded. In most cases, more than one player gets a reward. The winner usually gets the bulk of the pot but other top players get a cut of it as well. However, the winner could also get the whole pot. This is why it’s important to check how the prizes are distributed before joining a tournament.

On the other hand, the prize is not always monetary. In certain cases, casinos award contestants with free spins, merchandise, and other interesting prizes. People interested in taking part in slot tournaments should familiarize themselves with how slot machines work before they sign up for a competition if they want to do well and win a valuable prize.

What types of slot tournaments are there?

Slot tournaments come in two forms, free and paid events. Both of these are available in brick-and-mortar and online casinos. The inclusion of the entry fee can influence the size of the prize pot as well as the gameplay.

For example, free slot tournaments are perfect for beginners as they don’t require players to risk any of their money. Casinos let players enter for free and provide them with a chance to win cash or some other prize. However, it should be noted players can’t win millions playing free tournaments. These tournaments usually offer smaller prizes such as free spins and other bonuses. Rookies use these opportunities to get better at the game before they invest their money and play in a buy-in tournament.

The other kind of slot tournament is the buy-in type. In order to compete, players need to pay an entry fee that will contribute to increasing the prize pool. These tournaments have different formats, such as scheduled competitions and sit-and-go ones that start as soon as all the open positions are filled.

There are also reloader tournaments that let players start all over, one-shot tournaments that feature various steps, and survivor tournaments that eliminate participants in stages.

Which strategies can be used?

While slot machines use Random Number Generators so that each and every outcome of the bet is pure luck, there are some strategies that can help players maximize their chances of winning.

For one, as there is a limited amount of time to clear the credit, players need to be as fast as they can possibly be. What is more, relying on the auto-spin feature might be the fastest approach here. Then, always playing for the maximum bet and betting on the maximum number of pay lines can lead to better payouts. Not worrying about individual winnings is crucial as they are not that significant – it’s the final result that matters. Finally, players cannot afford to be distracted while playing as just a few moments can make a huge difference when it comes to winning, which is why paying attention to the time and putting their phones away is vital.

Slot tournaments have many advantages such as spending a limited amount of money and having higher chances of winning, which is why many people are deciding to try their hand at this competition. If you think you might do well, why not join an upcoming one?

Rightlander partners with Awin to accelerate growth into new markets

 

Affiliate and advertising compliance experts, Rightlander.com have announced an overall product enhancement to support their growth into new markets including affiliate Networks and Platforms, Digital Agencies, Forex, Telecommunications and Utilities.

The move follows Rightlander’s experience and success in the iGaming vertical, where a number of parallels can be drawn between customer challenges, marketing regulations and partner guidelines.  These include the need for honest marketing as well as customer acquisition channels that marketing partners derive traffic from, such as websites, social media, search engines and email.

The new portal has been developed with input from leading brands in their sector such as Awin to help clients effectively review and rectify marketing infractions detected by Rightlander.

Alex Parmar-Yee, UK Strategy Lead at Awin, said “ We chose to work with Rightlander to enhance our ability to carry out publisher audits based on the requirements of individual advertisers. It was important to have a partner who was able to accommodate the wide variety of needs from our clients relating to areas such as content accuracy, offer intelligence and exposure monitoring. The tools provided have allowed our client teams to carry out important housekeeping more efficiently, so that even more focus can be dedicated to strategy and account management.”

New solutions have also been introduced to help save clients time, reduce risk and grow their partnership programs with confidence. These include Screen, which allows clients to evaluate the online content of new affiliate applicants as part of their suitability checks, and Verify that helps clients to ensure that their promotions are live on authorised sites and linking to the correct landing pages.

This is in addition to Rightlander’s core solutions that help clients to Discover undisclosed content and continuously Monitor partners for accurate and compliant marketing worldwide.

Rightlander’s new modular portal allows clients to segment and prioritise results by business objective and marketing channel (websites, social media, PPC ads, video streaming, Telegram and email) and offers a comprehensive list of API integrations to deliver data to a client’s systems.

The solution offers targeted scanning by frequency (daily, weekly, monthly) and compliance issue (e.g. required T&Cs or prohibited text) per URL along with cutting edge technology to reduce false positives, minimise time spent checking infractions and streamline the remediation process.

Ian Sims, founder of Rightlander.com, said “Having the opportunity to fine-tune our product with such a high profile partner has been fantastic. The evolving nature of affiliate marketing and the emergence of influencers, coupled with an ever-increasing array of regulations and advertising marketing guidelines in different consumer verticals has heaped a huge compliance workload on marketing teams.

“Awin put Rightlander through a 6 month trial period before selecting us as their marketing compliance partner and we’re delighted that our monitoring software has saved them so much time and helped them to resolve so many more compliance issues.”

SCOTT THOMAS TEAMS UP WITH CASINO GURU TO RAISE AWARENESS OF PROBLEM GAMBLING

SCOTT THOMAS TEAMS UP WITH CASINO GURU TO RAISE AWARENESS OF PROBLEM GAMBLING

 

Scott Thomas TV personality, podcaster, the managing director of The Social PR, and co-founder of Food4Thoughts, has recently joined forces with Casino Guru to promote responsible gambling and raise awareness around safer gambling initiatives.

The successful British entrepreneur, social media influencer, and TV personality, Thomas opened up on his podcast, Mancs on the Mic, with brothers Adam and Ryan Thomas, about his personal struggles with gambling addiction at the age of 21, a period which he described as a really dark time. “I was gambling away student loans. I was borrowing money off friends, I would even wait outside the casino in the morning for it to reopen … I was constantly trying to chase whatever I lost,” confessed Thomas during a series of videos created for the campaign.

Overwhelmed with the amount of feedback he’s received after discussing the issue for the first time, Thomas and Casino Guru, the world’s largest online casino database and an established gambling authority, have collaborated on a problem gambling awareness campaign.

Casino Guru has been working towards better and safer gambling for years. Pushing online operators to become fairer and more responsible, solving thousands of complaints of players who feel deceived by an online casino, and providing honest reviews of over 4,400 online casinos are just some of the examples of that.

This mission is also reflected in many responsible gambling projects and initiatives they launched to date, including the Global Self-Exclusion Initiative and the Casino Guru Academy. However, Casino Guru has recognized that it’s getting increasingly harder to spread awareness of problem and responsible gambling and reach the desired target group: despite providing a plethora of high-quality content related to responsible gambling, the younger population simply doesn’t read it.

According to Statista, 39% of Britons aged 25 to 34 gambled in 2020. What’s more, around 25% of Britons in the same age category have reported to engage in some form of online gambling within the four weeks prior to being surveyed. In other words, one in four Britons in this age bracket are playing in online casinos. And since this is the generation that can most effectively be targeted through social media, Casino Guru‘s collaboration with Scott Thomas was a natural next step.

The campaign ran on Instagram, which gave it a big potential to reach large audiences, since Thomas’s Instagram account currently has close to 1 million followers. Both parties ultimately hope to help not only current and future people at risk of problem gambling, but also friends and family members of someone exhibiting problem gambling behaviour.

“I was in a mess at the time, and it massively affected me and my family,” Thomas confessed in one of the videos. “I’ve teamed up with Casino Guru to try and raise some awareness around this subject because clearly there’s a lot of people out there who are still struggling,” he added. “Even if it helped just one person, this Casino Guru awareness campaign has done its job. Because I wish I had a video like this when I was going through my struggles.”

Apart from Thomas’s personal story of gambling addiction, the series of videos tackles topics such as how to know if someone has a gambling problem, how to gamble responsibly, or how to approach someone who has a gambling problem.

As Daniela Kianicová, Public & External Relations Lead at Casino Guru, explains, “This awareness campaign is the first of its kind – it marks the first time that a company operating in the gambling industry uses the power of a mainstream influencer to communicate the risks of problem gambling to young adults – and we’re very proud to have the honours.”

With gambling becoming more and more accessible and widespread, it is vital that the risks of problem gambling as well as responsible gambling principles are communicated to as many players as possible. And because different generations consume content in different ways, finding new and creative alternatives to reach audiences of all ages is paramount to success of such campaigns.
