Slot tournaments are becoming increasingly popular at bingo sites as well as at slot sites and Buzz Bingo have been running a series of tournaments every Wednesday for some time now. Each tournament lasts an hour and players can take up to 200 spins on a specific Playtech slot game to score points based on wins relative to stake (regardless of spin value), with additional points for large multiplier wins. There’s cash prizes for the top three on the leaderboard and free spins for the rest of the top 20.
All this pales into insignificance beside the HUGE tournament that Buzz will be running for the whole of next week, 21st – 27th September. The tournament is based around Playtech’s epic Kingdoms Rise series of progressive jackpot slots, including the just released 9th game in the series, Kingdoms Rise: Shadow Queen. All these games can be played from 10p a spin. On top of the normal scoring system, players score double points for their first win on each of the nine games, so there’s a slight advantage to trying them all.
If you’re familiar with the Kingdoms Rise games you may be wondering whether you could use any stored up tokens in the Kingdoms Rise shop to trigger a bonus feature and increase your score – and the answer is no, Buzz have thought of that one, and any features you buy from the shop won’t score points.
In a regular Buzz slot tournament, you have one hour to complete up to 200 spins; in the Kingdoms Rise tournament you have the entire 7 days to complete up to 1500 spins. You can join after the tournament has started – no need to be there for the start. In fact, if you wanted to leave it really late you could register half an hour before the end of the tournament and rush through your 1500 spins in one go, though that might be cutting it a bit fine! There’s also a very slight advantage to be had by doing your spins early on – if you end up with exactly the same score as another player, whoever scored first gets precedence on the leaderboard.
The prizes are also much bigger than in the Wednesday tournaments, and there’s a lot more of them.
1st: £2500 Cash
2nd: £1500 Cash
3rd: £1000 Cash
4th-10th: 500 x 10p Free Spins
11th-15th: 250 x 10p Free Spins
16th-20th: 100 x 10p Free Spins
21st-50th: 75 x 10p Free Spins
51st-100th: 50 x 10p Free Spins
As this is Buzz, when they say free spins they really do mean free spins; all winnings from free spins are paid in cash and the only restriction is the £5 minimum withdrawal. The spins can be used on any Kingdoms Rise slot.
