A slot tournament (or online slot tourney) is an event where several different players get to compete against one another for real cash prizes.

Some slots tournaments can last 20 or so minutes but some of the extended tourneys can last for an entire day, which will automatically pause each time you log out (not the tourney but your individual play). The entrance price for a slot tourney can range from low buy-ins up to the more expensive buy-ins for highrollers.
