Last night there was a 100% free tournament with 100 prizes, without continues and with 10 free rebuys, that got cancelled because it didn’t have 100 players registered. So I figured I should start this thread where we can let each other know if a free tournament starts.

Preferably we should put here only the 100% free (without or with free continues and rebuys). But those are extremely rare, so go ahead and post ones that won’t cost you a small fortune to complete. :D

I will start with this one. It is in Royal Vegas and sister casinos. It is called International day of Charity. You have to pay for rebuys, but no continues, and besides, it is for charity. The winner gets to choose where the donation of 500 will go. First 10 get cash from 150 to 2.50. It ends in less than 3 days.

Palace group has a 100% free weekly tournament. First 50 get 10.
Digimedia started some new ones this weekend. One is free without continues and gives an ipad mini 2 or headphones to the 1st and 200 between the next 14.

I think is about time we had a nice 32 Red CM exclusive tourney.

If Mark could maybe look into this pretty please ? :p

Could maybe keep it sweet with one free entry and 10 x 0.50p re-buys so won't break the bank for anyone.

All prizes could be in bonus money with their standard wagering ( I know a lot of players, including me would risk a 5er to maybe end up with some great play time)

Game could be the wonderful Immortal Romance and tourney called Jon Vs his un-dead Nemesis.


To be continued......or possibly not :D

This is a tournament warning. These are the type of tournaments where the casino says “hey you “competitive” player, give us your money”. I use the “competitive” word because it was used from CS one time, and is politer than the one I have in mind.

In this “win an ipad pro” tournament everybody that wants the ipad will need to pay 750 or more, and if not lucky will win 20 or less. To be fair, there are worst ones out there, like those “pay 600 for a top prize of 50”. It is like casinos are only happy if tournaments have absolutely no real winner no matter how lucky the player is.

To be also fair to players, without the “competitive” ones, there would be no tournaments at all. :)

Personally I qualified a month back and had a great week (all fun but no luck). After that I directed all my deposits at vs, bought some tickets, but didn’t make the wagering (no luck at all). So I think I deserved this ticket. And it is logical to limit it at people that didn’t already qualify (but deposit).

I think that's a fair enough way to look at it too :thumbsup:

3 days of fun just ended, with 34 freerolls and like 100 FS won. FS paid 10 euro that lasted less than a min. :cool:

Nothing new, so here are a couple of tournament tips.

1. Play last minute. Even if you are going to buy continues, wait as much as possible. That way nobody will be able to buy their way higher than you in the leaderboard. And it will spare you the agony watching your position getting worst every hour.
2. See the leaderboard and ask yourself if it is worth your time and money. See the top 10, dividing their score with the money you can spend in one continue gives you the number of continues needed to buy certain prize. Is it worth it? Remember, most people play last minute. There is a reason MG doesn’t let you see the leaderboard before you enter a tournament.

Did you get the code sent to you by E-mail?

It appears that Videoslots are targeting different parts in turn for this promo rather than have too many rushing for the games only to be met with disappointment because the games are full.
Great move :thumbsup:

Great move. Gives everyone a fair shot. And obviously loyal(ish) players who unfortunately dont make the 500 wagering can sometimes take part.

I dont use any VS codes unless they are mailed to me, if its meant for you it will get sent to you.

Not for me :(
Bad idea depositing 30 there this week, 5% RTP and nothing else. :(

These codes probably only work for selected accounts, the ones sent the email. If they are being found because they have been shared on some forum, they may not work if the casino has been smart enough to pre register eligible accounts so that the codes only work for the players that should be using them.

That is exactly what Video Slots do.

To the best of my knowledge they have player 'groups' who are specifically / individually targeted so that everyone gets a slice of the pie at some point but that the site doesn't get a self inflicted DDos due to every man and his dog jumping at the 'freebies' at the same time.

This would explain why the codes don't work for players who obtain them from an unofficial source. It has to be accepted rather than complaining every time an unofficially obtained code doesn't work.


PS - I didn't realise they permitted dogs to register.
