Online Casino Tournaments - Getting Started

There are 2 main types of Online Slot Tournaments: 1. Scheduled tournaments and 2. Sit and Go tournaments. The other type of tournament is a Freeroll tournament (Free Slots Tournament). Biggest slot tournament is the Grand Slam of Slots, in 2009 the total pool of money was $1,400,000. Most slot tournaments last between 5 and 15 minutes. Scheduled tournaments can run for either 5 minutes or sometimes over a month or more, which has one advantage to it because the pool can be very large, but in turn, because of the sheer magnitude of players it decreases your chances of winning.

Sit and Go tournaments generally run for a short amount of time and have fewer players as well as a smaller pool for the winners. But the advantage to this type of tournament, besides being fun and fast paced, is that because there are fewer players it increases your chance of winning.
