Online casino competitions, slot tournaments & leaderboards

Each reel exhibits a number of symbols ranging from 2 to 7, so that, from one spin to another, the possible winning lines vary.

Slot tournaments & Slot races

For those unfamiliar with slot machines, certain terms may be obscure or unsuitable. For example, it is known that those who play slots play alone against a machine. However, there are also mods that allow players to compete with each other, and these are exactly slot tournaments or slot races. But are there any differences between these two modes? Let's get to know them.

Slot tournaments are generally defined as competitions that take place in land-based casinos, while slot races are more typical of online casinos. The differences, however, are not just in the name.

Slot tournaments in casinos have their own peculiarities. They can be free, and in this case, they are called free rolls, like free poker tournaments. Alternatively, they can require a registration fee, which makes up the prize pool of the same tournament.


A slot tournament generally has a time duration (1 hour, 30 minutes etc.). Each player is given an endowment of chips that can only be used in the slot machines involved in the tournament. When the start is triggered, all players start spinning, trying to accumulate points but also to run out of chips in the budget. In fact, only credits that have been won count when calculating the score, while those not played are simply considered lost.

Sometimes slot tournaments provide for the possibility of a rebuy, or to re-enter the game in the event of a run out of chips, by purchasing more. This possibility is generally offered in timed tournaments, not in credit-based ones.

The prizes paid out by slots tournaments in land-based casinos are usually in chips, which can then be exchanged for real money. In free roll tournaments, however, these prizes may be paid out in chips that must be replayed before they can be cashed out.


We speak instead of slot race purely in online casinos. It is a similar mode to slots tournaments, in the sense that here too, the players compete with each other to get as many points as possible and try to win the leaderboard with the relative prices. Contrary to tournaments, races are practically always free.

Slot races are practically always free, the only thing to do to participate is to click on the appropriate button. The prize pools offered in slot races are typically paid out in the form of replayable bonuses or free spins.
