Happy belated 2019 to you too @Unibet Rep :thumbsup:

Pros:
Those tournaments which are based on biggest equalised win over x rounds. Its fair to all players. I personally prefer those tournaments which have 1-10 games as opposed to those with all games. I also very much like the fact that the prize is automatically credited to the account immediately once the tournament closes.

Cons:
Tournaments based on overall turnover. These really don't serve as an incentive most of the players at all. It's basicly offering a prize to ones who are willing to buy it.

The tournament page itself is pretty well done. I like the fact that you can enter the tournaments for the entire week beforehand.

I don't usually play table/live games, so those tournaments have little or no interest to me. But the slot tournaments have very nice prize pools usually and it's one of the main reasons I choose Unibet frequently.

Agree with Ternur. Tournament page has a nice layout. There is often a decent number of prizes available on the leaderboard.

I don't bother with any Turnover based tournament - absolutely no point trying to get on the leaderboard with my low-rolling.

Equalised score tournaments are great, with a minmal amount of games involved. Even just one game is fine with me, as I least I know everyone is having an identical battle.

My all time favourite type of tournament are the ones that Yggdrasil slots runs from time time to time....the "complete x number of missions in the fewest spins" (on any stake level). They get me proper hooked.

I like the fairness of the tournaments (equalised win ones) and also the fact that minimum stakes are reasonable (usually 0.10 or 0.20).

Simple to understand format.

Would like some form of notification to my email if a prize is won (especially for your longer running tournaments where I forget to check back).

I like equalised ones, however never played at unibet as I don't understand the scoring, for example, the Divine Dreams one on now is showing

1 J.S. 42600 £3,000
2 M.T. 39140 £2,000
etc

so whats that? Someones won 42600x stake?

Score = 100 * (Win Round 1/Bet Round 1)

So in effect, someones won 426 x their bet. Could be £85.20 on a 20p spin (very lucky for a Quickspin!)

I don't get why its * 100, why not just display it as 426x :confused:
thanks for explaining it :)

There's probably some clever reason I haven't thought of...maybe its so that there isn't any decimal points on anyone's scores?

Just trying the game on demo now - not hit anything noteworthy in 200 spins. Might be one to swerve for me.

I loved the Yggdrasil Xmas touraments as well, the format was perfect and think other casinos are missing a trick
not taking up the idea.Getting fed up with VS battles, the entry requirements are way over the top for the low prizes.

They have been the best for me as well. Always done good with them.

Exactly what ternur said!

Most Casinos have the highest wager type tournaments, which i never join...or it has to be unknowingly. Unibet, Maria and I-Game tournaments however have these fair for all, which has indeed served as an incentive for me, on more than one occasion! I even won a few prizes with those, on one occasion even on all 3 accounts :D

Sp please keep these as they are, and specifically leave them open to the minimum betters like myself! :thumbsup:

Seems to me like having some of each allows you to serve all player types. Equalized tournaments for the low to mid rollers, overall turnover for the mid to high rollers. Why should one of either group get everything? Not that I can play there anyway as I'm in the U.S. for now, but my personal preference is overall turnover.

The same reason as the point scoring on Videoslots freerolls?

Instead of showing a decimal at say a £100 win and displaying 100.00, they display 10000 (At VS).

Sometimes it doesn't make sense but it doesn't need to if it works :D

Videoslots freerolls work on points not multipiers?

Yea exactly.

So here's the Planet Fortune freeroll running at the moment. Everyone starts with 100 spins with a total value of £€20 worth.

The guy at the top has 10796 points which means after wagering his £20 worth he's won £107.96, but videoslots don't display it as 107.96 they display it as 10796; removing the decimal.

It is essentially multipler based. The guy has finished with 5.35 times the starting amount of £€20. If he won £100 from 1 spin it's exactly him winning 500x bet for 10000 points. :thumbsup:

yes but in pennies, he won with 10796, or £107.96
Unibet is a multiplier, so 42600 makes no sense at all if it actually means 426

Perhaps the addition of super short ones might be a new direction for you.
Other unnamed casinos run 20 min/ 30 min/ one hour ones (usually points systems like 1 for a spin, 3 points for a win, 10 points for a big win).
It’s nice to have the adrenaline and competitiveness of such a short tourney.

I agree with that. I don't like week long ones as you either have to play all week or you forget they were on.

Maybe do a combination of what VS do and Casumo do.
Do some freerolls for people who have deposited and wagered over a certain time period for access to a certain number of days freerolls, but instead of doing them wager free and getting affordability problems like VS's have, give the spins out with say a 20x wagering attached - as long as you reward players with decent games, like not all 10p ones. VS's usually have 1000+ in each battle, thats 1000 x (in VS's case) of at least £20 deposits.
Then intermix ones like Casumo do, where you get one game and play for CASH prizes, from a customer perspective, I check Casumo most days and will make at least a £50 deposit if the £1000/2000 one is on a game I would usually play, that income is something they wouldn't usually get.
You can still run similar ones to what you do too.
