FAQs

What are Slot Tournaments?

Players compete against each other for the chance to win prizes. The more you spin, the more chance you have to earn points and climb the leaderboard.

How do I win a prize?

To claim a prize, players need to collect points to move them up the leaderboard. Prizes will vary depending on how high you finish.

What type of prizes can I win?

Each tournament will have different prizes on offer, from free spins to bonuses, and even cash prizes. Your reward will depend on where you finish on the leaderboard.
Any free spins won will come with no wagering requirements.

What if I joined but forgot to play?

Don’t worry, nothing will happen. You’ll still be visible to other players on the leaderboard, but you will remain on zero points.

What if I do not complete all my spins in a tournament?

You can use as many or as few of your spins as you like during a tournament. For example, if you have 100 maximum spins allowed, you can spin between 1-100 times to collect points.

Terms and conditions of the promotion


  1. How the promotion works
    1. To take part in a tournament you need to click on the ‘Opt in to this Tournament’ button and play all your initial fun spins during the promotion period.
    2. Each tournament applies to the promotion game stated for that particular tournament.
    3. Your position on the leaderboard will depend on your total points. For each winning fun spin, the amount you win will be multiplied by a number that is based on how many fun spins you have used. The resulting amount will then be added to your total points.
      In the individual tournament information there is a ‘How to Win Points’ table. This shows the number that the amount won would be multiplied by, according to the number of fun spins used.
    4. Once the tournament has finished, click on the ‘Completed Tournaments’ tab to see if you have won a prize. The prizes are free spins, as shown in the prize table for that individual tournament.
    5. If there is a tie, the player who opted in first will be awarded the higher position on the leaderboard.
    6. If you and we disagree on any prize awarded, we will have the final say.

    4. Winnings from the free spins will automatically be added to your main balance once all free spins have been used. You can withdraw them as cash or use them to play games that are not promotion games.
    5. You can only have one set of free spins from this promotion in your account at any time. So if you have received free spins on one day, you will not be able to opt in and receive more free spins until the previous free spins have been used or deleted.

      • remove any winnings relating to any bonus.

      • without giving you notice, if the change or cancellation is needed because of any change in law or regulation; or

Casino games are great. Regardless of whether you’re playing table games like blackjack, instant win scratchcards or slots, the process of battling against the odds is always entertaining. Online casino games have, traditionally, been individual pursuits. When you log in via a desktop computer or mobile, it’s you against an invisible opponent otherwise known as the “house.”

In the days before online gaming, table games like blackjack et al were played with other people. Of course, this still happens in brick-and-mortar casinos around the world. However, when you play online, this element of shared experience has been lost. That’s not a problem, but we know a lot of players enjoy a sense of community. That’s one of the reasons we offer progressive jackpots.

Jackpot slots are all about shared effort. A small portion of everyone’s bet goes into a communal pot which, in turn, gives everyone a chance to win a significant amount of money. Slots tournaments build on this concept. By creating a scoring system and setting a few rules, we’ve created competitions that pit you against other like-minded players. The result is a shared experience that makes online gaming extremely exciting.

Slots Tournaments Explained

The basic premise of a slots online tournament is simple: you’re trying to earn more points than everyone else. To earn points, you have to play a selected slot. Each time you hit a winning combination, you earn points. Once the competition comes to an end, the top performers receive a prize. In most cases, prizes are free spins.

There isn’t a whole lot of skill involved in these games. Once you spin, it’s up to the gaming gods as to whether you hit winning combinations and, therefore, earn points. However, you do have control over the tournaments you enter and the number of spins you make. Everyone will have their own strategy, but the thing to remember is that these contests are meant to be fun. You’re playing a game you enjoy and trying to earn points.

To ensure things don’t get too serious, we offer a selection of free-play and premium slots tournaments. The former doesn’t cost anything to enter, while the latter has a fee. You can play any tournament you wish. Premium events often have prizes with more value i.e. cash. However, even our free slots tournaments give you the chance to win spins that could be turned into cash prizes. Basically, whichever competitions you enter, there's always plenty to get involved in.

How Do I Enter Slots Tournaments Online?

Now we’ve outlined the fundamentals of online slot tournaments, here are the steps you can take to join an event:

  • Step 1: Open the William Hill IE slots tournaments lobby.
  • Step 2: Scroll through the list of options and use the info link to learn more about an event’s rules, prizes, and general structure.
  • Step 3: Hit the “opt in” button to join a tournament. We offer premium (i.e. there is an entry fee) and free-play online slots tournaments.
  • Step 4: When the tournament starts, load up the relevant game and start spinning. You’ll have a certain number of “fun spins” to use. These are free spins that are only valid for use in the tournament.
  • Step 5: Points are earned each time you hit a winning combination. The scoring criteria will depend on the tournament. However, it’s generally the case that the value of your prize will be multiplied by a certain number and converted to points. For example, the multiplier could be 3X. If you hit a win worth €10, that would be multiplied by three to give you 30 points.
  • Step 6: Check your ranking. Leaderboards refresh every 30 seconds so you can keep track of your progress throughout the tournament.
  • Step 7: Collect your prize. The number of players that win a prize will vary depending on the tournament. If you finish in a payout spot, you’ll win a prize (usually free spins).
  • Step 8: If you win a cash prize, you can withdraw the money or use it to play slots. If you win free spins, you can use them on any valid slot. Any money you make from the free spins is yours to keep without any wagering requirements.

Slots Tournament FAQ

Before you go off and spin, here are a few more facts you need to know:

How Do I Enter?

You can enter a William Hill IE slots tournament by logging into your account (join us if you don’t have one) and clicking on the “tournaments” tab. From there, you need to hit the “opt in” button and spin within the parameters of the competition.

Do I Have to Pay?

No. We do have premium slots tournaments that cost money to enter. However, the majority of our competitions are free. This means it won’t cost you a penny to enter or spin the reels.

Do I Have to Make a Certain Number of Spins?

No. As long as you make at least one spin, you’ll be part of the tournament. Each tournament has a maximum number of spins. For example, the rules might state that 100 fun spins will count towards your total. However, you don’t have to complete all 100 spins. It’s worth noting though that the more spins you make, the more chances you’ll have to earn points.

Why Should I Play Slots Tournaments Online?

An online slot tournament is designed to be fun. Yes, there are prizes up for grabs and, yes, there’s a sense of competition. However, these are just two ingredients in a much larger meal. When you take everything as one thing, slots tournaments are engaging, immersive, and enthralling. Because you’re playing against others, it gets the adrenaline pumping and that’s fun. Therefore, if you’re going to enter an event, remember that it’s all about taking part and, if you win, consider it a bonus.
