Red Tiger Gaming’s Tournament Tool Goes Live
Online slot tournaments are a type of promotional event that doesn’t get enough attention considering how popular they are among players. Red Tiger Gaming has heard that demand, and in response, they’ve added something great to their portfolio.
The new tournament functionality built right into all of the Red Tiger Gaming online slots makes it easy for operators to offer players all kinds of events and other types of goodies along these lines.
We’ll get into the details of how this whole system works down below, but what’s important to note is that they are taking a proactive approach from the software side instead of putting all of the pressure on the operators and software aggregators to do the heavy lifting, so to speak.
How These Tools Work
On the most fundamental level, the basic idea is that the games have tools built straight into them that offer an interface for operators to work with to craft tournaments, promotions, ways of earning points and other types of fun.
For example, players can earn points by racking up consecutive wins, consecutive losing spins, total numbers of spins in a session, total amounts wagered and other options. These points are then totaled and kept up to date in real-time analytics that are available immediately to players in an expanding sidebar.
What’s really cool about this is that it can be used to offer up different types of tournament events on their slots, which are already played by tons of people.
The Effects of This Type of Tool
There are some interesting effects that can come when you see these types of tools implemented. First and foremost, you’ll see operators use them to put together promotional opportunities for players. As a result, that means that players will get more value with all else being equal.
Another effect of this is that players will be more interested in checking out what Red Tiger Gaming has to offer with their titles, and this is one of the things that’s “in it” for them to produce this type of thing.
It’s also worth noting that Red Tiger Gaming has been a trendsetter before, and although some other companies have put together similar tools in their slots, we can’t remember seeing an implementation that was so thorough or that gave operators so many different options for putting together events. As a result, we could end up seeing other developers follow suit, and if that ends up being the case, tournaments could become a lot more popular overall sooner rather than later.
How Slot Tournaments Work
There are a lot of different ways to handle online slot tournaments, but the bottom line is that for what this company is offering, players will compete against each other to earn points. Those points can be earned in a variety of ways, all of which are determined by each individual operator, but the most common way of handling it is to have them earn points based on their winnings or the number of spins they’ve played at different stakes (or some combination thereof).
As a result, there are various elements of skill, luck and amounts wagered taken into consideration into the final rankings. From there, players are rewarded based on how many points they earn and where that lands them on a leaderboard. These leaderboards are the keys to winning the tournaments, and there can even be multiple leaderboards used over periods of weeks that are then used to qualify for a final event.
