One of the best ways to enjoy your favourite game in a casino is to participate in an online casino tournament. Two of the best software providers to have developed online casino tournament platforms include Microgaming and Realtime Gaming (RTG) and you can only register for one of these events once you have registered a real cash account and then made your first ever deposit.
Some freeroll tournaments do also frequently take place for both new and existing players, but when you have a positive balance in your account, you can sign up for a variety of different online casino tournaments whenever you want. The most common events include online slot tournaments and online blackjack tournaments and they are generally only available via the RTG download client or via the Microgaming download client.
This means that you won’t be able to register for an online slot tournament from the instant flash version of the casino, you would need to install the casino software onto your computer. Once you have downloaded the casino software and then signed into your account, all you need to do is look for the tournament button. When you hit this button, you will be directed to the main tournament lobby.
The tournament lobby will have a complete schedule of upcoming tournaments. It may also show details about some of the completed tournaments and about tourneys that are currently in-play. It will also reveal most other details that you need to know such as the tournament duration, the entrance fee (buy-in) and it will also reveal the actual game(s) that you get to play on for the duration of the tourney. This description should also reveal the prize structure.
You can buy-in to most tourneys for as little as $/€/£1.00 or $/€/£2.00 and the prizes can range from as little as $/€/£5.00 up to in some cases as much as $/€/£1,000 or more. This will depend on how many players have signed up and how much the entrance fee is etc. Once you have paid to enter a tourney, as soon as the time comes, the game should open in a separate window and you must try to make as much profit as possible within the allotted time, using the tournament chips that you are given. Rebuys and Continues may also be available.
