Casino Tropez is hosting a 21 tournament every Tuesday at their online casino. 21 is another name for blackjack on account of the backgammon hand totaling 21 points. All blackjack players at Casino Tropez are entitled to participate in the 24-hour 21 tournament. All players will start with the same chip count. The total prize money on offer is $1,000 and the top twenty chip holders at the end of 24 hours win $50 each. Casino Tropez is quick to disburse the bonuses to the winners. They are issued on the very next day. The bonuses have a wagering requirement of 15 times.

This tournament uses the Elite Challenge platform, which enables players to track their position throughout the tournament. It claims to be the first and only tournament platform with this facility. The status is updated every half hour and lists the player's name, nationality and how many chips he or she is behind the leader. This tells the contestants how much catching up they have to do to be in the top twenty. If they are already in the top twenty they can learn how close are the remaining contenders. The other online casinos that are hosting Elite Challenge tournaments are as follows. Casino Bellini is hosting a slots tournament and Europa Casino is hosting a slots tournament and a new depositor's tournament. Online Casino, Cameo Casino, Vegas Red and Casino Del Rio are also subscribers to the Elite Challenge.

Casino Tropez offers six different variations of blackjack. The first is the standard version of blackjack generally played in all online casinos. In Blackjack Surrender an old rule now not commonly used has been activated. This rule allows players to surrender their hand and forfeit only half their wager as compensation. In Casino Tropez Blackjack Surrender is played with six decks, the dealer stands on all soft 17s, and players can double down on any first 2 cards and also after splitting. The third game is Pontoon. In this game the pontoon hand, which is same as the blackjack hand, pays 2 to 1. A five-card hand that has not busted also pays the player at 2 to 1. In Pontoon the dealer must hit on soft 17 and stand on hard 17. Blackjack Switch is a recent variant in which players are dealt two hands and given the option to switch the top card of each hand in order to build stronger hands. 21 Duel Blackjack uses community cards to build hands. One of the most interesting blackjack variants is Progressive Blackjack. A part of every bet contributes to a jackpot prize. The jackpot ticker currently stands at just over $180,000.

Casino Tropez is powered by Playtech and the blackjack games have been exclusively designed for Playtech online casinos
