Thanks for checking out Free US Slot Tournaments. Our goal is to provide you with information on the latest free slots tournaments and the best online slots US has to offer. We know it difficult to find slot tournaments that allow players from the United States, but all the tournaments listed here can be played by U.S. players.

There is a free tournament schedule listed above. I try to update this as often as I can. Most of the free slot tournaments now being offered are daily or weekly games and there have been fewer of the free slot tournaments with large prizes left. Occasionally, I will list some of the large prize money slot tournaments that you have to pay for.

If you are from outside of the United States, you should take a look at these online slot tournaments to find one that is currently being played and ones that are scheduled for the upcoming week.

Update - 9/18/12
The Vegas Tech style tournaments are back at Liberty Slots. These slot tournaments are not timed events like the RTG slot tournaments. This means that you can take you time and try different things without needing to worry about the clock. This also means a return to the Autoplay button in Slot tournaments (no more tired index fingers from clicking on the mouse).

For about a year, the only tournaments left for people in the U.S. is a few of the online casinos that use RTG software. These tournaments don't change much which meant that I wasn't posting much recently. However, Liberty Slots will be hosting a monthly tournament like the old Vegas Technology casino so I will likely be posting more often again.

You can still see the list of RTG casinos that have their own slots tournaments. These are still good slot tournaments to play. The differences between them is that these RTG slot tournaments have a time limit of only a certain amount of minutes and you are trying to spend the entire balance that they give to you.

Two of these RTG casinos (Cool Cat and Silver Oak) offer players a $30 free chip to use on the casino's slot tournaments. The free $30 can only be used to play on these tournaments and not in the rest of the casino.

After you are finished with the slot bonus, you can choose to accept another bonus after you make a deposit. These bonuses can only be used one at a time. This means you either have to run out of the $30 chip (less then $5) or complete the wagering requirements for the slot tournament bonus (whichever comes first).

* Note - You will find more often than not that the bonuses that are offered by casinos are for slots only or other games with a high house advantage. This is the same as when casinos create a slots club and give you extra money for when you play more often. These bonuses are generally not offered for casino games like blackjack, roulette, craps, video poker and other table games. Many times, the casino will forbid you from making wagers on these games.

Only the casinos that use RTG software and Liberty Slots still offer slot tournaments to US customers, although I am always looking for more options. The RTG casinos that I've played and reviewed on this site are Rushmore, Silver Oak, Cool Cat Casino, Casino Titan and Club World.

Vegas Slot Machine Tournaments

September 20, 2014 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Slot Tournament Info

Slot machine tournaments are a very common event both in Las Vegas casinos and online casinos. They are very popular with slots players, offering both a sociable, fun experience, as well as offering some pretty substantial winnings in many cases. There is, however, a difference in how slot machine tournaments operate between online casinos and their land-based predecessors.

Online slot machine tournaments are usually presented in the form of a reoccurring promotion. It is not at all uncommon to find an online casino that holds a weekly slot tournament/promotion. These types of tournaments usually award less prize money than brick ‘n mortar casinos, but are also structured differently. Not requiring any entry fees, online slot machine tournaments only require that a player gamble at a particular slot machine game.

In other words, the slot machine still pays out as it normally would, and a player can bet as much or little as they like (in range of the machines stakes, of course). At the end of a pre-determined time period (normally 24 hours), cash awards are handed out to the top players who have won the most money at the machines. It is an added bonus for winning, if you will.

If it is a weekly online slot machine tournament, players can expect to vie for a cash pool of approximately $2,000, which is normally shared between ten players. The first place winner will likely receive around $400 to $500, while the remaining top finishers will likely receive sums between $100 and $300.

Slot machine tournaments in Las Vegas, however, operate very differently. Players usually have to pay an entry fee ranging from $10 to thousands of dollars (although some tournaments are free). All of the slot machines designated for the tournament are programmed to offer a certain amount of credits that is the same for all machines. The players will then be given a time frame (20 minutes is common) in which to bet as many credits as they can (hopefully all of them). The slot machines are programmed in a way that does not let winnings be re-played back into the machine, but instead records all of the credits the player has accrued in the time frame. The players with the top credits are then declared winners.

Online Slot Tournaments

Unfortunately, there haven’t been too many new slot tournaments to talk to you about. You may have noticed the absence of posts on this website for a considerable amount of time. The slot tournaments that are available are primarily for people who live outside of the US and can play at Microgaming casinos.

There are still some RTG online casinos that do allow Americans and still have slot tournaments; but these tournaments haven’t changed since the last time that I reviewed them and it wouldn’t make much sense to review them twice. The overall popularity of slot tournaments has waned in the United States because of the lack of options and diversity. I hope that this changes in the future, but I’m also not going to be posting very often until this changes.

If you would like to learn about the current free US slot tournaments that are still available, there are many links on the sidebar and at the top of the homepage that will help you out. If you would like to learn about the latest news in slots for Americans, you can do what I have been doing and check out for the most up-to-date information.

Slots Tournament Strategies

October 24, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Slot Tournament Review

It’s been a while since I have updated the website. There hasn’t been a whole lot of new action for online slots tournaments that can be played in the United States. I need to update my tournament schedule as Rushmore doesn’t offer the $10,000 tournament anymore. The rest of the slot tournaments on the chart are still valid.

The heyday of the free slot tournament was in 2010 and 2011. This is when online casinos like English Harbour, Superslots, Online Vegas, Go Casino, Golden Casino, Crazy Slots, Grand Vegas, VIP Slots and others were offering daily and weekly freerolls using the Vegas Technology casino software.

All of these online casino closed down and left a void in the market which was picked up by the online casinos that use RTG casino software such as Rushmore, Silver Oak, Cool Cat, Casino Titan and Club USA. I didn’t care for these tournaments as much, but they were still fun to play.

Within the past year, online casinos with the Wager Gaming Technology software started to offer slot tournaments (including freerolls) that very closely resemble the ones that used to be hosted on the Vegas Technology casinos. This includes casinos such as Liberty Slots, Miami Club and Intertops Casino.

This article is going to be a quick strategy guide for both types of slots tournaments that are currently being offered.

RTG Slot Tournaments

These tournaments are timed and I refer to them as the “spin as fast as you can” tournaments. You will begin with a set number of credits and a fixed amount of time to make spins. The average freeroll offer will start you with 10,000 credits and 10 minutes in which to use those credits on the featured slot machine.

When you hit a payline, the winnings are not put back into your credits. Instead, the amount won is placed in your tournament score. Once you use the credits, they are gone. There is no getting them back. The object of the game is to get the highest score possible in the time allotted.

To do this, you will want to use up the entire 10,000 credits (or however many starting credits) that you begin the tournament with. If you have 10 minutes to play, you are going to want to spin as fast as you can. However, you don’t want to use the credits so fast that you still have several minutes left to play. This means you want to go slightly faster than a 1,000 credits per minute pace.

There are going to be 3 bet sizes: 100 credits, 25 credits and 12.5 credits. You should never use the 12.5 credits setting. If you hit a payline, it won’t benefit you at all. The trick is to try to use the 100 credits when the reels are hitting and the 25 credits when the reels go cold. This can be difficult to do.

There is going to be one or more bonus features with each of the feature slots. You can play these online slots games for fun at The thing I like about that website is that you don’t need to register if you are going to use the Instant Play option. The one thing you must do is hit any of these special features using the 100 credit spin. If you don’t, you are only going to get 1/4th of the winnings that you should have received.

Once your credits or time is finished, the tournament is over. There are some of these RTG tournaments that have rebuys. If you rebuy into a freeroll tournament, you will usually receive another 20 minutes of time and 20,000 credits. This is obviously offered because they want the paying customers to have a better chance of winning.

Wager Gaming Technology Tournaments

These tournaments are scheduled tournaments. Each tournament will have a starting time and an ending time. You will have the entire time to play the tournament. You will have a starting balance and you can bet this balance however you would like. When you win on a payline, the money is added back to your balance. The object of this type of tournament is to accumulate the largest balance as the tournament ends at its scheduled time.

The tournaments offered at these casinos are usually 24 hours, 3 days, 1 week or a month long. The starting balance will usually be between $50 and $200. You will be able to rebuy an unlimited number of times.

There are two general schools of thoughts when it comes to doing well in this type of tournament: the tortoise and the hare. The tortoise will begin with a very low bet on each spin and try to gain money in steps. The hare will burn through the balance quickly trying to get a quick strike.

If you are patient, you should try the tortoise strategy. Set small goals and raise your bets as you reach these goals. This will take several thousand spins. If you have money and want a jump on the competition, you should try the hare strategy. One big hit will put you close to the top of the leaderboard.

Either way, once you start doing well, you will want to use the autospin option. Set your loss and gain limits, and set the autospin to stop on a big payout.

The way that I play these style of games is to make my average bet size around 1% to 2% of the total balance that I have left. Once the balance is raised or lowered enough to make 1% to 2% bet higher or lower, I raise or lower the stakes accordingly.

Near the end of the tournament, if you are close to getting on the leaderboard, you should gamble and try to get a big win to push you over the top.
