Jackpot City Casino, powered by Microgaming, has launched a new multi player online blackjack tournament. A prominent animated spot on the lobby proudly announces the event. Two features are highlighted. First that there is no entry fee and the second that card counting is welcomed.
Card Counting created a furor in land casinos used electronic devices to keep track of the cards sent to the discard tray. This enabled them to get a clearer picture of the cards left in the deck and thus take better-informed decisions while playing blackjack. The land casinos went to court and got the use of devices for card counting banned. But blackjack players have since then evolved mental card counting systems, which obviously cannot be deducted. These systems are not easy to implement in the fast paced blackjack games. Jackpot City now invites blackjack experts to try out their card counting techniques and thus try to beat the house. In support of its second claim Jackpot City Casino offers daily freeroll online blackjack tournaments in addition to those with buy-ins. The freerolls have smaller prize pools but the regular tournaments are also a steal with $1 buy-ins only. These have larger prize pools. All prize pools are guaranteed. Another advantage that Jackpot City Casino offers is that it gives the player an option to play with two decks. The other options offered are four and six decks. However players should go for the two deck option because the lower the number of decks the higher is the average payout ratio.
Jackpot City Casino offers both Scheduled and Sit n Go tournaments. The Scheduled tournaments start and end at specified times and require advance registration. It is advisable to register in advance because most tournaments have an upper limit on the number of players. If the minimum number of players does not register then the tournament will be canceled. The detailed tournament schedule is available only after registering and downloading the software. The Sit n Go tournaments are played over a specified time interval but they do not start at given times. They start as soon as the minimum numbers of players required for the tournament have signed up.
The blackjack tournaments at Jackpot City Casino are multi round. Each table accommodates 7 players and the dealer and several tables are in play simultaneously. The winners at each table progress to the next round where there are fewer tables. Ultimately in the final round there is only one table and the winner of that table wins the tournament.
