Video poker and blackjack are the two online casino games that require a substantial element of skill. Players need to wager with optimal strategy in order to reach the high average returns these games offer. Online tournaments in variants of these games allow online casino players to test their skills against others. Grand Vegas online casino offers regular tournaments in both these games categories.
The video poker online tournaments are called $2,500 BB Guaranteed. They are 24 hour tournaments held four times a week starting at 8.00 PM. The next event at Grand Vegas online casino will start on Tuesday April 12 and will be played on 100 Hand Joker Poker. This will be followed by an online tournament starting on Thursday April 14 that will be played on Single Hand Deuces Wild. On the weekend video poker tournaments will commence on Saturday April 16 and Sunday April 17 and will be played on Mega Multi Hand Deuces Wild and Multi Hand Aces and Faces respectively.
All the video poker online tournaments at Grand Vegas online casino are identically structured. The entry fee is $1.99 and players can rebuy unlimited number of times for a rebuy fee of the same amount. The starting stack is $100 but the rebuy stack is $175. The prize pool consists of $2,500, but this is paid in bonuses, which are known as Bonus Bucks at Grand Vegas online casino. The top 500 players on the leader board share the prize pool with the player in the first place taking home $350.
The online blackjack tournaments at Grand Vegas online casino are called Blackjack Pot Percentage. They are also 24 hour tournaments but are held three times a week starting at 8.00 PM. The next blackjack online tournament will start on Wednesday April 13 and will be played on Vegas Strip Blackjack. After that an online tournament will start on Friday April 15 and will be played on the innovative blackjack variant Perfect Pairs. The blackjack online tournament starting on Monday April 18 will be again played on Vegas Strip Blackjack.
Unlike in the video poker tournaments, Grand Vegas online casino does not offer a guaranteed prize pool for the winners of the blackjack events. The top 41 players on the leader board share the pot collected. The first place winner gets 15% of the pot. The second place winner gets 10% of the pot. The entry fee for the blackjack tournaments is lower at $0.99 but the rebuy fee is higher at $2.49.
Grand Vegas online casino is powered by software from Vegas Technology. The video poker and blackjack games used in the tournaments are proprietary Vegas Technology games. Grand Vegas is licensed in the gambling jurisdiction of Curacao.
