What is a slot tournament?
In a typical Bellagio slot tournament, players compete against each other to win large cash and FREEPLAY® prizes by accumulating the most points during multiple rounds of slot machine play. Participants are randomly assigned to slot machines and are given unlimited spins for a preset amount of time. It is not necessary to put money in the machines. Players win points as they hit winning combinations on the reels and the more spins completed within the set time, the greater the chances are to enhance the total score. The scores for all the rounds of tournament play are totaled to determine the overall tournament rankings.
How does a slot tournament work?
Players are assigned their session times during slot tournament registration (for more information see tournament registration question below). At the tournament, the emcee will announce session times and welcome guests into the tournament arena, which is normally held in one of Bellagio's luxurious ballrooms. Players sit at the machines they were randomly assigned at tournament registration. On the count of three, everyone in the session begins hitting the button on their machine and plays for the duration of the round. Players are awarded points by hitting winning combinations on their machine's reels. At the end of the session, a representative comes around to record everyone's score. After tournament play, participants are welcomed to stay in the tournament arena and enjoy the event, or come back later for their next session. After all rounds of tournament play, guests will return to the tournament arena for the awards ceremony where the winners are announced.
Are all slot tournaments the same?
Not at all. Bellagio strives to provide a unique experience at every slot tournament by varying themes, décor, food, and entertainment. The most common slot tournament format consists of three rounds of play. Other formats include: the best three out of four scores, twin tournaments offering players two chances to win, re-buy rounds to replace the lowest score, and bracket style tournaments where players advance to higher prize pools.
Does it cost money to participate in a slot tournament?
To keep it exciting for guests, Bellagio offers different prize formats. Therefore, some tournaments are free and some require a buy-in. Buy-in tournaments typically have a set number of participants that Bellagio will not exceed. This ensures more favorable odds and a better chance of winning.
How much can I win?
Prize structures vary depending on the tournament. Top prizes range from $20,000 to a Million dollars in Cash! Each tournament's prize structure can be seen on its respective page at Bellagioslots.com.
Are there other activities involved in a slot tournament besides playing the machines?
The Bellagio Slot team is dedicated to providing guests with an exciting, action-packed experience. Live cooking stations, bands, dancers, entertaining emcees and other surprises are just a few of the exciting aspects that are often present at a Bellagio tournament! Food is typically served buffet style and guests are welcome to eat and enjoy the open bar and entertainment throughout the day. In addition, tournament invites often include a complimentary room and other Bellagio amenities to enjoy during the tournament.
What happens at tournament registration?
Tournament registration typically takes place the day before tournament play starts. At registration, players show their MGM Rewards Players Club card and randomly select their tournament machines using one of the computer stations available. The machine numbers selected, play times, and tournament location will be clearly marked on credentials given to players.
