    So the RTG slot tournaments have been out for a few weeks now.

    I want to know what your strategy is playing them.

    I have yet to win even a penny and can't believe the scores that some players get.

    What are the tricks? Do you spin at max bet? Start low bump up? Start high and then lower the bets?

    Come on guys, spill the beans please. Thanks!

    I want to know too. the $10,000 rushmore tourny top score was over 100,000. I think they should do away with the timer and have it like the vegas tech casinos.

    I've won a few small amounts and one $45. I spin at max bet, spin as quickly as possible-no waiting for the music to stop but just as soon as I can spin. The bonus symbols can take a lot of time, as can the bonus rounds."
    I still think most of it is just luck. But when I lose sometimes I think they just hate me and rigged me to fail. Especially at BetPhoenix. They let me win big on my free money then told me I couldn't have it because they shouldn't have let me use the free money to play. I won a lot until I started using my own cash, then I never got close."
    I also check out the leader board before signing up on money tourneys so I know how much chance I have to be a money winner.

    Here's what i do,i spin max for first 5 spins then 5 spins lower,then repeat,LOLBut i did win one at Winpalace last week the 3.50 buy in(Texas tycoon) i hit 10,000 on 2nd spin,and won $110. on the average i don't win very often.

    I try to spin as fast as I can, I play max. and on some of these that give you 2,500 for 5 min. I do lower the amount from 500 until 0, But the best luck I have had with these is at Casino Titan, I was so excited when the screen changed during my game and I won the Random Jackpot, I've never won one of those. Over $14,000.00"
    But even with that win I landed in 24th place , I might win .20"
    And I agree that the special features take wayyyy to long"

    I just press spin, close my eyes, spin around counter-clockwise 3 times only wearing socks...It seems to work.

    I have won the random playing in 2 tourneys at inetbet and casino titan but you Do Not get to keep that money!!!! Lets say your balance in play is up to $3,000 you hit a $10,000 Random while playing in the tourney your balance just goes to $13,000 thats all. Sometimes it does not even help when you look at some of the leaders their balances are $85,000. It is still exciting to see it go off with the fireworks though.

    Thanks for all the tips everyone! I will try them all. Someday I will win that 20 cents, damn it! lol"
    Looks like I might have to try patting my head and rubbing my tummy after I hit spin. Turning in circles will make me too dizzy. lol"

    Ok, I just played the Texas Tycoon tourney at Bet Phoenix. Interesting."
    I started with max bets for a few spins, lowered to $25 and then to $12.50 and hit the free spins with 3 Oil Rigs. I got the 25 free spins (which I have never hit spinning regularly lol) but didn't make much off of them."
    Raised back up to $100 for a few, lowered to $25 and then to $12.50 again and guess what? Hit 4 Oil Rigs this time. This time I got 15 free spins. Those spun about 3 times and it figures, my time ran out! LOL"
    I have always played these tourneys at max bet and never hit any bonus rounds. I think I might have to change up my bets but then on the other hand who's to say I wouldn't have hit those bonus rounds at max bet either???? "
    Big sigh............ the world of gambling.

    For the tourneys that you're given days to complete, like the ones for Online Vegas and Crazy Slots etc.  Depending on how much you get to start with like for example if the beginning balance is 150.00 then I normally bet high for the first 50.00 then reduce my bet to 1.25 and 25 cents alternating, I'll raise my bet higher if my wins continue to be lower than what I'm betting.  For example if I'm betting 1.25 and about ten spins later I haven't won more than the 1.25, I'll raise my bet because the odds that I'll be getting a good spin are in my favor.  Once I get that good spin, I'll reduce my bet to 25 cents and then raise to 1.25 and start the cycle over.  I've won a lot of tourneys that way and could have won more if I didn't get greedy and keep my bet high because I like the big win.   It may take a lot longer building up the wins but when you've got days to build it, take advantage of them.  My biggest downfall is keeping my bet high after  I ve gotten that big win because I'm afraid that if I reduce my bet I'll miss out on another big win and wind up losing the tourney altogether.  It's only when I keep to my strategy that I'm able to win.

    Thank you humorthisgirl for letting us in on your secrets. [​IMG]"
    And update to my RTG tourney wins or lack of, I managed to win 2 at Bet Phoenix last week. "
    Totaling $3.36. Not complaining at all. I was thrilled! And got a screenshot of a Random Jackpot while I was playing another tournament there.

    I won $250 dollars in Rushmore Loose Caboose about a month ago in the freeroll tournament.  All I did was bet the max which is 100 dollars and I got very lucky and had a great round of free spins.  I actually won the tournament random jackpot during my ten minutes the very next week, but my playing time was so terrible that it didnt help me to win anything. I think going with the maximum bet you will get lucky eventually!  Oh yes, and for some reason (maybe it is in my head lol) I do better if I don't play the first day it is offered. Hope it helps!

    Hi SarahLucy:Thanks for your ideas on how to do better at these tournaments.  All ideas and advice is welcome. I too have found that if I play the tourney right away, as soon as it opens, I do terrible.  If I wait until it is closer to closing, I seem to do better too. Why that is I have no idea. [​IMG]Thanks again:  And welcome to NDF.                                                                                       Pam

    I say do match bet always unless you are in top ten and have plenty of time left which is what I do. I have won several pennies and on Saturday I finally got my first random at Bet Phoenix which made me rich by a mind boggling $3.80 so I am thinking how the heck I am going to spend all of this dough. I have been #1 playing in the Silveroak tourneys in 3 out of the five I have played and placed first overall in 2 of them. I think it is luck of the draw and the advice you have been given is good because it is all about speed, timing and of course luck. I also noticed that a lot of times if you are one of the first or one of the last to play gives you more winnings.

    i am not aware of any strategy you could use. you have to play at one bet only and thats the 100 buck max. and are timed to play it. i won 1 of them so far , got 35,000 on texas tycoon but since havent even gotten even 10,ooo. its fustrating but what the hell...........its free right? lol  good luck to all

    Sandiegosex, you can lower the bet if you wanted to, in fact I know many players that do just that."
    Me? I like to go for it, either I win, or I don't!!"
    Oh and the turning in counter-clockwise thing, really does help [​IMG]

    I have won several first place spots. my high scores have been 150000, just played crystal waters and score is 89000.  I spin at max and dont stop for anything.  It is nothing but luck.  My low scores have been as low as 1200.  Keep spinning.

    if you notice in those tournaments you cannot stop your spins, like normal. At first I thought it was just so everybody would have to be playing the same amount of time, but then I got to thinking that there must be something else. I started using my space bar instead of my mouse. I found that when your spin is almost over, just start repeatedly hitting the space bar as fast as you can... most of the time your spin will go much much faster, and sometimes lightening fast, like the whole turn in half a second. "
    This would not be possible with the stop-spin feature enabled... "
    try this out and let me know what you think... it especially helps if you get free spins because at last you will have time to finish all your regular spins as well."

    Gee, That is an interesting thought simplelifer. I'll try it too. I'll try anything to get a better score on these tourneys, than the ones I am getting. [​IMG]Thanks for the idea, and the post.                                                                                                Pam

    I just play max bets and have most of my luck at Bet Phoenix. I've won close to $200 all total and have had a ball playing with that money in tourneys as well as on the reg slots. Some days your lucky and some days your not. My biggest win was $145 and smallest 20cents.
