River Belle online casino is offering a unique type of online blackjack tournaments. Though they are not Sit N Go, several tournaments are scheduled in a day and will continue till the end of the month. The unique feature of these tournaments is that even though they have low entry fees and low prize pools they are multistage tournaments. Thus they allow low rollers to experience the excitement normally provided by mega events.
The largest of the online blackjack tournaments at River Belle online casino has a prize pool of only $126 and an entry fee of only $10. Entry is restricted to the first 250 participants. If a particular event is already full up there is another similar one starting in about 8 to 10 hours. Because the prize pool is not large it does not run deep. Only the top three players get a share of the prize pool. The player in the first place wins $63, the player in the second place wins $37.80 and the player in the third place wins $25.20.
This blackjack tournament requires a minimum of 14 players to start. It is structured over three rounds in the following manner. In the first round players start with a stack of 2,500 credits. The minimum bet is 10 credits and the maximum bet is 250 credits. The round is played over 10 hands. 14 players get promoted to the next round. The second round begins after a rest of only 30 seconds. In the second round players start with a stack of 3,500 credits. The minimum bet is 50 credits and the maximum bet is 500 credits. The round is played over 7 hands. The top 3 players get promoted to the next round. All three will win prizes. The third round decides who will win how much. In the third round players start with a stack of 5000 credits. The minimum bet is 100 credits and the maximum bet is 1000 credits. The round is played over 6 hands.
There are other blackjack tournaments at river Belle online casino that are similarly structured. One is a freeroll that offers a prize pool of $50. Another has an entry fee of $2 and a prize pool of $25.20. The third has an entry fee of $5 and a prize pool of $63. All blackjack tournaments are played on European Blackjack. In European Blackjack the dealer does not check his hole card for blackjack and that adds more excitement to the game because the players cannot know in advance whether the dealer holds a blackjack. River Belle online casino is powered by Microgaming and is licensed by the Government of Gibraltar. It is the flagship brand of the Belle Rock group.
