Jackpot City online casino is powered by software from Microgaming and offers the complete range of Microgaming online slots and tournaments. The tournaments are held in online slots and online blackjack games. One online blackjack tournament in a format titled Survivor is due to start soon.

The first 250 players to register before the scheduled time of the tournament will be allowed to participate. Thereafter the entries will close and hence Jackpot City online casino players should register as soon as possible for this blackjack tournament. However, if a minimum of 14 players do not enroll then the event will be scrapped. Because the Survivor tournament is very popular, this rarely happens. The event will be played on six deck European Blackjack, which is a popular blackjack variant at Jackpot City online casino. The entry fee is $20 and the guaranteed prize pool offered is $280. Though the prize pool is small, it will be shared only by the top three players. The player in the top place will take home $130, the player in the second place will take home $90 and the player in the third place will take home $60.

The Survivor blackjack tournament at jackpot City online casino is played over three rounds. Only the top ten players survive the first round. In the first round each player starts with 2,500 chips. The minimum wager is 10 chips and the maximum wager is 250 chips. The first round is played over eight hands. The competition gets less intense but more critical in the second round. The top six out of the ten players will go to the next round. In the second round each player starts with 3,500 chips. The minimum wager is 50 chips and the maximum wager is 500 chips. The second round is played over eight hands. The third round is the fiercest and requires aggressive wagering. It is played over only six hands and therefore there is no time to make amends. Players start with 5,000 chips and the minimum and maximum wagers are hiked up to 100 chips and 1,000 chips respectively. The top three players in this final round share the prize pool.

Blackjack players at Jackpot city online casino who do not like tournaments can select from a wide range of blackjack variants. Double Exposure is a game fancied by newcomers because both the dealer's cards are dealt face up. Therefore the decision making is relatively easier. On the flip side blackjack pays only even money. Those blackjack players who like a challenge can go for Pontoon. In this blackjack variant both the dealer's cards are dealt face down. To compensate for the lack of information blackjack pays 2 to 1.
