The way a slot tournament works is that you first sign in to the online European casinos to reserve your place in the tournament by giving your internet contact information. You are then allotted a certain amount of “credits” for each round of play or in some cases a specific amount of time to play. Every member of your particular tournament receives the same amount of credits or time limit. The credits are used for spins on the slot machine you’re assigned to use. If your game has a time limit, your goal is to spin as many times as possible within that time frame and accrue as much winnings as you can. Usually the person who has the greatest amount of winnings when your time expires is the winner.
It is not necessary for all the players in a tournament to start at the same time; in fact in many tournaments players rotate their playing time and take turns on the slot machines. At the end of each round the credits are added up for each player and the one with the most credits wins that round. As the different rounds are played a designated monitor for the tournament will either post or announce the highest scoring players so you can keep up with the scores.
