Slot Tournaments Explained, What are Freerolls? Freeroll Strategy, Different Types of Tournaments

I play a lot of free slot tournaments and I have won plenty of free cash from them over the years. I'm not a freeroll expert, but I have picked up a few tricks about how increase your odds of winning, so I thought that I would share.

I usually play freerolls when I feel like gambling, but don't feel like losing my own money or making a deposit. It's also fun to get a free shot at cash. Some freerolls don't have a huge prizepool, but a 10 minute freeroll may save me $50-$100 by giving me something to do instead of making a deposit.


Please post your own tips or tricks below to help other NoLuckNeeded players increase their odds of winning.


What are freerolls?
Free slot tournaments, also called FREEROLLS, are a great way to make a little extra gambling money and get some free action. They are offered by many casinos as a reward to loyal players, as a promotional tool, or to get people in the gambling mood in hopes that you'll deposit after you play a free tournament.

Freeroll Prizes and restrictions
Many online casinos run freerolls, and most pay the prizes into your casino account as "cash", in other words tournament wins usually don't have playthough requirements or maximum cashout rules. There are a few exceptions to that, so it is important to read a casino's terms and conditions. For example, some casinos only allow depositing players to play freerolls and some casinos limit the amount of prize money a non-depositing player can win in a freeroll.

BEWARE: A few casinos (such as inetbet), consider freeroll prizes "bonus money" and as such, their prizes have terms and conditions including a maximum cashout rule.

How to win Freerolls, Freeroll Strategy, and Different Types of Freerolls

Freeroll strategy differs depending on the type of tournament. All tournaments give you a certain number of chips, but depending on the casino software, you may have a certain number of minutes to play your chips or you may have until the tournament ends to play your chips.

For instance, RTG software tournaments
give you x amount of chips and x amount of minutes to play those chips, and you play until all your chips are gone. For RTG tournaments, I always bet the maximum amount allowed per spin (Usually 100), and click as fast as I can because you may run out of time and have chips left over. In RTG tournaments, once you start playing the clock (the minutes you have to play) will keep running whether you leave the tourney or get disconnected. You are done playing when your chips run out OR when your minutes run out.

WGS software casinos (Examples include Intertops Classic, Miami Club, ect.) are sometimes different. You get a certain number of chips and have until the tournament ends to play. This type of tournament makes it wise to check the leader board and see how many chips you need to win a prize. When playing that kind of tournament, your starting balance and wins are together. You may stop playing at anytime (or you are forced to stop when you run out of chips). If you make it to a spot that pays a prize, you may want to stop playing and guarantee yourself a prize, instead of risking more chips to get a higher spot or bigger prize.

Rebuys and Add-ons
Most tournaments (including freerolls) these days have add-ons or rebuys for a price. Rebuys give you a new shot at the tournament, so it is like starting over and your highest score will be used. Add-ons give you extra chips and time to play your existing score.

Some people go crazy with add-ons and spend more money than they can make in the tournament. It is wise to only use add-ons and put your own money into a freeroll if it makes sense financially. For instance, you are ranked 10th in a tourney and 10th place pays $5, but add-ons cost 50 cents and give you 2000 extra chips to play and 9th place pays $15. Remember to check the leader board to see how much more you need to make it to the next spot. Also remember other people may use add-ons and the people ahead of you may play more if they see your score has beaten them out of a spot. Don't bet $20 to win an extra $5!

Good Luck and happy gambling everyone!

I agree with you TDTAT, I have observed pretty much the same things, especially in regards to add-ons!
