SocialTournaments.com is a social gaming platform where players can join tournaments free of charge and win real money. This project started back in May 2019 with only one tournament type and not many other features and has been steadily growing in complexity over time. We’re still a long way from being “feature complete” – you wouldn’t believe what we have in stock for you – but for now let’s focus on what’s here already.
This list will be updated when new tournament types are added.
The Total Win tournament type is straightforward, being the most similar to regular online slot games. You have a limited number of spins and a fixed bet level; your final score is what you win during the course of the game.
John uses his first spin and wins 10 points.
On his second spin he does not win anything.
On his third spin he wins 20 more points. John currently has 30 points.
The Multiplier Win tournament is designed to only consider your highest multiplier. You have a limited number of spins, a fixed bet level and your final score is the highest multiplier you got during the play session.
Jane uses her first spin and gets a x40 multiplier. Her score is now 40.
On her second spin she gets a x30 multiplier. Her score is still 40 – only the highest multiplier is counted towards score.
Jane uses her third spin and gets a x45 multiplier. Her score is now 45.
The Bonus Buy tournament type is unique from a conceptual point of view and only works with a particular game mechanic, i.e. Feature Buy or Bonus Buy. Right now, this feature is available in Sweet Bonanza – during a regular Sweet Bonanza game, you have the opportunity to purchase a free spins round by paying a value equal to x100 of the total bet.
In a Bonus Buy tournament, you get 10 free Bonus Buy opportunities, with 10 free spins each (for a total of 100 free spins) with a chance to win more spins along the way.
This particular type of tournament currently has two varieties – Total Win and Multiplier Win.
John uses the first free spin round. During the 10 spins, he wins 40 points.
John uses the second free spin round. During the 10 spins, he wins 120 points. His score is now 160.
Jane uses her first free spins round. During the 10 spins, she gets a 10x multiplier, then a x50 multiplier. Her score is now 60.
Jane uses her second free spins round. During the 10 spins, she gets a x10 multiplier, then a x40 multiplier. Her score is still 60, based on her previous round.
Jane uses her third free spins round. During the 10 spins, she gets an x80 multiplier. Her score is now 80x.
SEASON 3 UPDATE
Social Pass – Season 3 brings three new types of tournaments: the Weekly Qualifier Tournament, the Weekly Final and the Mission Tournament.
The Weekly Qualifier Tournament & The Weekly Final
These 2 types of tournaments need to be thought of, as a whole because they form the new sponsored tournaments system. Here’s how this system works:
There will be over 100 Weekly Qualifier Tournaments in a month.
The casino Tickets won as a prize at the WQ Tournament can be used only in the WF from that weekend.
The Mission Tournament
This is a special type of tournament built on the mission system: you collect points with every spin and by achieving missions. The mission system is made up of four small objectives the player needs to achieve in order to collect points:
Let’s take an example:
Jane plays a Mission Tournament and she lost 3 times in a row. This means Jane won 100 points: 10 points on each of the three spins and 70 points for achieving the ”Lose 3 times in a row” mission.
How can you activate the Booster?
The Booster is a special feature that rewards you with a higher number of points. You need to collect 30 Booster points in order to activate the Booster.
You collect Booster points by “changing direction” when you are on a winning or losing strike.
Let’s take an example:
Jane plays a Mission Tournament and she won 2 times in a row, being close to completing the Win 3 times in a row mission. On the 3rd spin though, she loses. The Booster collects 2 Booster Points in the Booster score. Now she is closer to reaching 30 points.
Once the Booster is activated you play 20 Spins that bring a higher number of points:
The Leaderboard in this tournament is built on the number of points you collect. So, your goal is to activate the Booster, collect more points by completing the missions and rank high in the Leaderboard.
Note that just a few tournaments will have the Booster feature attached, so you will be able to play both regular tournaments and Mission Tournaments.
