Online slots tournaments are by far the most popular at online casinos. But next in popularity are the blackjack tournaments. Jackpot City online casino offers two types of blackjack tournaments. The first type is the Scheduled events and the second type is the Sit & Go events. To access the online blackjack tournaments at Jackpot City online casino players have to enter the Games menu and select ‘Multi-Player & Tournaments’ and then within that window select 21. Online casinos often use 21 for blackjack because in blackjack players have to get to a hand value of as close to 21 as possible. Then one tab gives the details of Scheduled Tournaments and the other tab of Sit & Go Tournaments.

Jackpot City online casino offers four different Scheduled blackjack tournaments that run throughout the day at specified times. One of them is a freeroll for which there is no entry fee. This tournament has a prize pool of $50, which is distributed as follows. The player in the first place wins $20, the player in the second place win $15, the player in the third place wins $10 and the player in the fourth place wins $5. Next in the ladder is a tournament with an entry fee of $3 and a prize pool of $42. The top three players win prizes of $21, $14 and $7 respectively. There is a tournament with an entry fee of $5 and a prize pool of $70. The top three players win prizes of $40, $20 and $10 respectively. The best Scheduled blackjack event is the one with the entry fee of $10 and prize pool of $140. The prizes are $80, $40 and $20. All tournaments have a cap of 250 players.

The Sit & Go blackjack tournaments at Jackpot City online casino are much smaller affairs. They commence as soon as five players are seated at the table. There are tables with entry fees of $2, $5, $10 and $20 that have respective prize pools of $9, $22.50, $45 and $90. The excess of the collection over the prize pool is the rake taken by Jackpot City online casino. In each case the prize pool is shared by the top two players, with two-thirds going to the winner and one-third to the runner up.

Though Jackpot City only casino offers an excellent range of blackjack games all the tournaments, both Scheduled and Sit & Go, are played on European Blackjack. This variant heightens the excitement because the dealer does not check for blackjack up front and players who double or split their bets can lose heavily. The software is from Microgaming and the online casino, which is a brand of the Carmen Media Group, is licensed from Gibraltar.
