The beauty of playing in any slot tournament held at Microgaming software powered online casinos is that you are going to find many of their most popular slots being used as the base game for those tournaments.
This will virtually guarantee that you will find a slot machine to play which you are familiar with and possibly one that you already enjoy playing. You will find a complete listing of all the current slot games found in all Microgaming slot tournaments below, along with an overview of what each game offers.
Microgaming Tournament Slots
Deck The Halls – This particular slot game was added to the list of tournament slot games in December 2012. This is a 30 pay line bonus video slot, which boasts a high variance playing structure.
Being a high variance slot makes it a great tournament choice as at any moment a high paying combination could spin in, which could see you quickly jumping your way up the leaderboard. A set of 10 free spins can be awarded once three or more scatters spin in, and during these freespins the Wild symbols become stacked.
Tomb Raider – What can we tell you about the Tomb Raider slot that you don’t probably already know?
It is one of the older 15 line bonus video slots on which you could trigger either a pick to win bonus game or a freespins bonus round. A base game, one coin per line jackpot of 7,500 coins could be won.
Thunderstruck – Much like the popular Tomb Raider slot game above, the Thunderstruck slot is the base game offered on many of Microgaming’s slot tournaments.
This particular game, however, has 9 optional pay lines, a regularly awarded freespins bonus game, and a base game jackpot of 10,000 coins, per coin per line that you have wagered could also be won.
Ladies Nite – When playing the Ladies Nite slot during a slot tournament, you will find that the only realistic way of scoring high is by spinning in the jackpot symbols on an activated pay line, or when you are lucky enough to trigger and re-trigger the free spins round.
When the freespins are awarded you get to play 15 freespins on which any and all winning combinations are tripled in value. This Ladies Nite slot has 9 optional pay lines.
Avalon – You will be playing a 20 pay line slot when using Avalon as a tournament slot. A jackpot of some 3,000 coins per coin per line can be won, and a set of 12 free spins could be triggered as well.
As the free spins play out, a random multiplier will be awarded to any winning combinations formed.
Loaded – This is a 25 line bonus video slot, with the best and potentially the most rewarding part of it being the freespins bonus game.
Once you get three or more of the scatter symbols dropping into view the bonus will trigger, then you will be able to pick one of three different ways to play out your free spins. You may select 12 free spins on a x4 multiplier; 16 free spins on a x3 multiplier; or 24 free spins on a modest x2 multiplier.
Thunderstruck II – This is one of the more recent additions to the Microgaming tournament slot canon.
You get to play every pay line which is available on the screen, and it also boasts a multi-level free spins bonus game – the more times it triggers the more options you are given in regards to how they play out.
Break Da Bank – Whilst this three reel, five pay line slot may not be the most exciting slot to play during a slot tournament, some fairly large scores can be achieved in a very short amount of time.
This is thanks to the wild multiplier symbols which will boost the value of any winning combination they help complete, coupled with the five different jackpots offered on each individual pay line.
Spring Break – One of the older video slots but still found as the base game on several Microgaming slot tournaments. Spring break has 9 optional pay lines, and thanks to a free spins bonus round some large scores can often be achieved.
The free spins can and do re-trigger fairly often when you are playing this slot, and with a base game jackpot of some 10,000 coins per coin per line wagered, you could soon be blasted to the top of the tournament leaderboard – if of course those jackpot symbols spin in.
Mad Hatters – You will be hoping to trigger the free spins bonus game quite early on in the slot tournament if using the 30 payline Mad Hatters slot as the base game.
The number of scatter symbols which appear will determine just how many free spins you will get to play out, with three, four or five scatters awarding 10, 25 and 50 free spins respectively. All of the free spins which you are awarded will play out on a x2 multiplier.
Hitman – This is a 15 pay line slot awarding multiple bonus games, and to be honest, the problem when playing it is that when you trigger these bonus games they can slow the game down as you play them out.
The one bonus game which will definitely waste a lot of time is the Contract Bonus game. Whilst it can be quite high paying it will eat up lots of your allocated time, so be aware of this fact and try to play this bonus game as quickly as possible once it triggers.
