The Different types of Slots Tournaments

  • Guaranteed – where the tournament prize fund (or at least minimum tournament prize fund) starts at a guaranteed amount (usually there is a minimum and maximum number of players requirement for these as well as most other tourneys).  These are generally reasonable sized compared to at least the initial buy-in and can often increase with participation and further re-buys.
  • Fixed or Variable 
  • Sit n Go – these are simple ones where you battle against generally a smaller number of players – usually a fixed amount but can be variable.  Once the required players have registered – the tourney starts shortly after. Prizes are generally smaller in % compared to the entry fee but of course there is more chance of winning in smaller groups (due to less competing players).
