Frequently Asked Questions
Slot Tournaments & EventsHow much can I win?
Prize structures vary depending on the tournament. Top prizes range from $20,000 to a Million dollars in Cash! And, one thing is for sure - at Bellagio everyone is a winner! Even the last place finisher wins a prize. Each tournament's prize structure can be seen on its respective page at Bellagioslots.com.
Not at all. Bellagio strives to provide a unique experience at every slot tournament by varying themes, décor, food, and entertainment. Tango Dinero, an Argentinean themed slot tournament, Pigskin Payoff, a football themed event, and Oktober Fearfest, a Halloween and Oktoberfest themed event, are just a few of the exciting tournaments that have recently taken place. In addition to changing the tournament theme, Bellagio occasionally varies the scoring structure. The most common slot tournament format consists of three rounds of play. Other formats include: the best three out of four scores, twin tournaments offering players two chances to win, re-buy rounds to replace the lowest score, and bracket style tournaments where players advance to higher prize pools.
Slot tournaments are reserved for invited Bellagio casino guests. To become a casino guest simply sign up for a free M Life Players Club card at mlife.com or at the Players Club desk located in the heart of the casino, and use it while gaming at Bellagio. Tournament invites are sent prior to the event via mail and email to customers who qualify based on their historical gaming activity. The criteria for receiving invites varies based on the event, but in general it takes an average of 6,000 slot points a day to begin receiving invites. If you would like information on how to qualify for a specific event, navigate to the event's page on Bellagioslots.com and fill out the "Event Registration Request" form.
To keep it exciting for guests, Bellagio offers different prize formats. Therefore, some tournaments are free and some require a buy-in. Buy-in tournaments typically have a set number of participants that Bellagio will not exceed. This ensures more favorable odds and a better chance of winning. Furthermore, the buy-in money collected from each player will be added to the tournament prize pool. This allows for even larger cash prizes!
Players are assigned their session times during slot tournament registration (for more information see tournament registration question below). At the tournament, the emcee will announce session times and welcome guests into the tournament arena, which is normally held in one of Bellagio's luxurious ballrooms. Players sit at the machines they were randomly assigned at tournament registration. On the count of three, everyone in the session begins hitting the button on their machine and plays for the duration of the round. Players are awarded points by hitting winning combinations on their machine's reels. At the end of the session, a slot club representative comes around to record everyone's score. After tournament play, participants are welcomed to stay in the tournament arena and enjoy the event, or come back later for their next session. After all rounds of tournament play, guests will return to the tournament arena for the awards ceremony where the winners are announced.
In a typical Bellagio slot tournament, players compete against each other to win large cash and FREEPLAY® prizes by accumulating the most points during multiple rounds of slot machine play. Participants are randomly assigned to slot machines and are given unlimited spins for a preset amount of time. It is not necessary to put money in the machines. Players win points as they hit winning combinations on the reels and the more spins completed within the set time, the greater the chances are to enhance the total score. The scores for all the rounds of tournament play are totaled to determine the overall tournament rankings.
Bellagio hosts slot tournaments approximately once a month. A full schedule of events can be seen by clicking on the slot tournament within the Special Events graphic on the main page of Bellagioslots.com.
To make your experience as care-free as possible, Bellagio posts a schedule of events on Bellagioslots.com a few weeks prior to each event. In addition, when checking into the hotel, tournament guests receive a welcome letter outlining exactly when and where to go for registration, tournament play, and the awards ceremony. If you still have questions about what to expect when you get here, feel free to give us a call at 888.987.7887.

The Bellagio Slot team is dedicated to providing guests with an exciting, action-packed experience. Live cooking stations, bands, dancers, entertaining emcees and other surprises are just a few of the exciting aspects that are often present at a Bellagio tournament! Food is typically served buffet style and guests are welcome to eat and enjoy the open bar and entertainment throughout the day. In addition, tournament invites often include a complimentary room and other Bellagio amenities to enjoy during the tournament.
Tournament registration typically takes place the day before tournament play starts. At registration, players show their Players Club card and randomly select their tournament machines using one of the computer stations available. The machine numbers selected, play times, and tournament location will be clearly marked on credentials given to players. In addition, as a thank you for visiting Bellagio, players will choose a welcome gift from one of a few options. Gifts vary for each tournament, but FREEPLAY® is always an available option. Physical gifts are typically shipped to customers' residences shortly after the tournament.
