Online Pokies Tournaments

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of an online casino tournament is probably poker, and while poker tournaments are incredibly popular, pokies also has its own, special tournaments that anyone can take part in. While not quite as popular as poker tournaments, pokies tournaments are quickly growing in popularity around the world, and especially in in New Zealand, where New Zealand players can take part in pokies tournaments from all over the world.

Pokies tournaments can offer players big prizes, and the competitive but fun nature of these tournaments means that more and more players are flocking to them, hoping to end the event being much wealthier.

Types of Pokies Tournaments

For most other live tournaments, players would play against the house or against each other, as most other games are not automated and can make use of a live dealer. In pokies, however, the random nature of the machines means that there can be no direct human involvement in the outcomes, and the tournaments themselves are not competitive in the more traditional sense.

Casinos will organise these events, and allow players from all over the world to join up and be a part of. Each event is different, and depends on what kind of tournaments the casinos offer to their players. Casinos will most commonly offer two different types of events. One is a scheduled tournament, where players can book in advance and then start playing once the event has begun. For those that aren’t interested in that, however, there is also special sit and go tournaments, where players are welcome to join and leave as they please. Once a certain number of players has joined, the event will begin.

How Pokies Tournaments Work

The tournaments that casinos organise are often very simply, but as the some time very effective. The casino will set up one type of game to play, and multiple players can join up and start playing. Every player pays an entry fee which grants them a limited amount of credits which they can use to start spinning the reels. These credits can only be used within a certain time limit, after which they become void and the player can no longer use them.

When the timer runs out, the player that achieved the highest possible score will win the prizes, which will be set by the casino.

Pokies Tournament Strategies

It is well known that there are no strategies players can employ to increase their chances of winning at a pokie, because all the machines run on a random number generator system, meaning everyone has an equal chance. Despite this, there are some steps players can take to improve their chances of winning more if they have a successful game.

Playing as fast as possible is advised, as this means you will be able to get more spins done while also not worrying about losing out on money, since the online pokie runs off of a set amount of credit. It is also advised to try and find a betting amount that suits you best as opposed to constantly using the max bet. This will keep allow for credits to be used for as long as possible while still maintaining the same chances of winning. Lastly, it’s important to focus, and now allowing yourself to be distracted. This will allow you to place more spins, which is the best way to increase the chances of winning.
