How to Play
The tournament is free to enter, fun and easy! For each round, contestants are randomly assigned seats at slot machines:
- At the start signal, each player hits the MAX BET or PLAY buttons to get in as many spins as possible per session
- At the end of each round, the highest scorer wins and goes to the next stage of the tournament
TOURNAMENT GAME BONUSES
A balloon or target may appear over or below the reels. Touch the balloon or target before it disappears and get an extra 1,000 to 5,000 bonus points.
Jump To First
The Money Man may appear as a target. Players will have 3 seconds to touch him on the screen to move to first place. (This does not keep the player in first place for the remainder of the round.)
4 Reel Frenzy
A bomb may appear over the reels, and once touched, will explode the screen into 4 sets of 3-Reel games. This game bonus can end at any time.
Note: Bonuses are random and won’t appear on every screen during a tournament.

The tournament is being promoted so Albertans choosing to gamble know what gaming options are available in the province. Gaming is an important revenue source that ultimately benefits all Albertans. In Alberta, net proceeds from VLTs, electronic bingo, lottery tickets and slot machines support important programs and services in communities across the province. In 2015/16, the AGLC contributed over $1.6 billion to the Alberta Lottery Fund. In keeping with the AGLC’s promise to provide choices Albertans can trust, the AGLC is focused on supporting Albertans to make positive choices for themselves and enjoy gambling activities in a fun and responsible way. As part of the AGLC’s commitment to social responsibility, the advertisements remind Albertans to use their GameSense.
GameSense is a proactive program that aims to reduce the stigma around seeking out information and resources, while encouraging healthy choices about responsible gambling. For more information visit GameSenseAB.ca.
