What is a tournament?
Simply put, tournaments are competitions that take place at casinos. Unlike deposit bonuses or lottery draws, these competitions pit players against one another in pursuit of prizes, which can range from free spins, bonus cash, gadgets or even holidays abroad.
A common tournament format is the leader board race. The casino selects a game or number of games (sometimes grouped by theme or game producer) that are to be included in the contest. Players earn themselves points, which are based either on amount deposited, turns played on the selected games or the number of wins.
Players are then ranked against one another in a leader board. Usually, the casino will offer prizes to a large number of players, not just the usual first to third place winners. Players who come in 200th place are often rewarded, though naturally with smaller prizes. The players occupying the top spots on the leader board once the tournament period ends are winners.
Netent Casino Tournaments
Netent casino tournaments are tournaments in which players can compete against the casino on casino games like video slots, slots, blackjack, roulette, scratch cards or other casino games. The results of every individual player is displayed on a leaderboard and the highest ended players on the leaderboard subsequently will receive a tournament prize. Tournaments always take place within a limited time span and it’s possible to participate in several tournaments at the same time and in the same casino.
Regular casino tournaments
In regular casino tournaments the participants are playing with real money against each other. You’ll be participating as soon as you open a casino game that’s linked to a regular tournament that’s been held at that very moment. So in this case you don’t need to buy ticket to participate and your tournament results are immediately being shown on the leaderboard. A tournament can be organized around just one casino game, but also several casino games can be involved in the online casino competition. A casino tournament of this format usually is being held over a longer period. As soon as you open a game that’s included in the tournament during that period each time your results will be added to the results you already have on the leaderboard, according to the rules of the tournament.
Normally not all participants at the casino tournament are displayed on the leaderboard but only the first 10 or 25 players with the best results at that moment.
These classic casino tournaments are always competitions in which you have to play with real money. Free tournaments are organized too but the ranking of the participants won’t be registered or saved. Also, tournaments are being held in which you can win extra (Frequent) Player Points, but also in those tournaments you need to play for real money. Free playable casino tournaments typically are organized in a different way and to participate you’ll need a tournament entry ticket.
Casino tournaments with entry tickets
The so-called “ticket-based” tournaments of the Netent Casinos are only accessible if you buy a ticket or an entry, or if you are being invited by the casino to participate.
The tournament has a determined period of subscription and a fixed date to start and will last an upfront determined time period.
The prizes are divided according to a tournament prize pool or consist of an amount of money or other prize provided by the Netent Casino.
The latter could be for example a trip to Australia or a high-tech gadget like an iPad or iPhone. Some tournaments are free accessible while for other casino tournaments a player needs to qualify to participate.
Many of the Netent Casinos invite a player to a tournament after they’ve made a deposit on their casino account and often only one single deposit is already enough to participate.
As a player playing with real money in any Netent Casino it could be very profitable to pay attention to any casino tournament going on.
If you combine you’re casino playing session with at the same time participating in a casino tournament you could end up with nice extra prizes out of the tournament’s prize pool.
Online High roller tournaments
Some online Netent Casinos organize special and exclusive High Roller Tournaments to reward players with huge prizes for the risks they take as big spenders in their casinos. High Rollers are players that either play with high amounts of money or deposit a big sum per month and play with their deposit over a slightly longer time period. High Roller tournaments normally demand a higher stake to play with but then again the prizes that can be won are higher too. As a matter of fact we’ve already seen tens of thousands of euros as tournament prize money in special High Roller Tournaments in which the Netent powered casino games were involved. It’s always good to keep an eye on the tournament schedules of the Netent casinos so you’ll know when a High Roller tournament is taking place.
Free online casino tournaments
For registered players at the Netent Casinos every week somewhere a free casino tournament is organized in which you can participate without having to make a deposit first. Normally the prizes to win in those free tournaments aren’t that high, but while playing you’ll still be able to get some extra (bonus) money on your casino account. For an overview of all reliable Netent Casinos that regularly organize such free casino tournaments you can have a look on this page.

Netent casino tournament strategies
A different variation is when not the winnings of a player are measured to determine his ranking on the leaderboard, but simply the rounds he managed to play during the tournament. These tournaments are particularly suited to play with very low wagers as the only goal is to spin or play as many rounds as possible and the player who has the most rounds will be a winner in the tournament. And if the latter is the case you’ve won a nice tournament prize, without having to wager enormous amounts of money for it.
To avoid confusion afterward you should always read the tournament rules of a Netent Casino. For example, in some tournaments a minimum wager is required to count for the tournament’s leader board or you need to attain a certain amount of rounds played before you’re eligible to receive a tournament prize.
