After what seems like quite a long wait, players from within the USA now finally have some options to
play slot tournaments online on certain games at casinos using software provided by
Realtime Gaming. If you're on this page, I probably don't need to explain the appeal of slot tournaments
and anyone who has been to Vegas will probably have seen, or experienced, them first hand. Suffice to say
that the online slot tournaments follow a similar concept and you will find a mixture of freeroll
tournaments and buy-in tournaments, usually for a small fee of no more than a fistfull of dollars.
Club USA are the latest
to add tournaments to it's software and the other casino I would recommend is the very popular
3Dice. These two
are both well known casinos that have developed a good reputation and more importantly, have the facility to
pay US players in a timely manner when they win. With the the current rather grey US laws regarding online
gambling, it's important to ensure you are at a safe casino, and these two fit the bill.
When you download the casinos listed here - which takes about 5 minutes to download, install and register - you
will see the Slot Tournaments button quite clearly in the lobby. here you will see a schedule of upcoming
tournaments and the facility to join in and play. The first three slots to feature in the USA slot tournaments
are Loose Caboose, Texan Tycoon and Crystal Waters (click here
to see a video of the latter) and more slots will be added as time passes.
If you want something a little different, then there is one other casino offering
online slot tournaments that uses it's own software and slots and actually
is, in my opinion, really entertaining. Not least because their slot tournaments last for a minimum of 30 minutes and
some can be played over 3 days at your leisure. Plus, their slot games are very good -
3Dice Casino is what I am talking about here
and once again they accept USA players, have a fantastic reputation (award winning in fact!) and good customer service.
A nice touch is that they also have a busy, friendly community chat facility when you are playing the tournaments.
