A slot race is a new type of slot playing competition that is open to real money slot players, and you can win a range of cash or bonus credit prizes by taking part in them.
As for how they have been designed, well you will find one or more slot machines at any casino site will be part of a slot race, and you will of course be told which slots are part of each one and you will also find a starting time and a finishing time of each slot race too.
All that you are tasked with trying to do when you enter a slot race is to simply play the slots that are associated with it during the period of time the race is in play, and then hope you amass as many comp points as you possibly can do.
It will be the players that earn the most comp points during any slot race that will then be awarded one of the prizes associated with each one. Be aware though you may have to opt-in to take part in a slot race so keep that in mind if you fancy entering one of the many ones that are available online.
Sadly, what I have found regarding slot races is that it is always the players that are playing for the highest stake levels that tend to win each of them, for they are going to naturally earn more comp points as they are playing.
However, it will be dependent on just how many prizes are on offer as to whether there is any chance of a low rolling slot playing winning, for if there are a large number pf prizes up for grabs then players that earn a fair amount of comp points but not a huge amount of them will still have a chance of picking up one of those prizes.
