Two popular online casino groups are offering online blackjack tournaments in the coming week. The same set of tournaments will be available across all online casinos of each group, but each group offers a different set. What is common is that the blackjack games designated in both sets of tournaments are from the online gaming software developer Vegas Technology.
The first is the English Harbour group of online casinos. The popular brands include English Harbour, Millionaire Casino, VIP Slots Casino, Caribbean Gold Casino and Silver Dollar Casino. This group offers two blackjack tournaments. The Head2Head event will start on Monday February 21 and will run till Thursday February 24. Players will have to play for the pot collected. The entry fee to the event is $5 and players can rebuy up to 250 times for a fee of $5 each time. The main prize pool will be shared by 10 players with the top winner getting 40% and the second place winner getting 25%. There are ten consolation prizes of $10 each.
The second blackjack tournament at the English Harbour online casinos will be played from Friday February 25 to Sunday February 27. This is a guaranteed prize pool tournament and has been named Weekend Blackjack Classic. The entry fee is $10 and the rebuy fee is also $10. As in the previous case players can rebuy up to 250 times. The prize pool runs deeper and will be shared by 220 players. The top winner will take home $2,500. Both the blackjack tournaments at the English Harbour online casinos will be played on Vegas Strip Blackjack. This online blackjack variant follows the rules prevalent in the land casinos on Las Vegas Strip.
The other group of online casinos powered by Vegas Technology is the Go Casino group. The other brands in this group are Online Vegas Casino, Crazy Slots Casino and Grand Vegas Casino. This group will host three 24 hour tournaments. The first of these will begin at 8.00 PM on Monday February 21 and end next day at the same time. It will be played on Vegas Strip Blackjack. The entry fee is only $0.99 but the rebuy fee is larger at $2.49. There is no guaranteed prize pool and the top 41 players will share the pot collected.
The next event will run from Wednesday February 23 to Thursday February 24. It is structured identically as the earlier tournament except that it will be played on a Vegas Technology blackjack variant called Perfect Pairs. This game features a side bet with handsome payouts if the first two cards dealt to the player are different types of pairs. A win on the side bet can quickly alter the tournament leader board positions. The final tournament will run from Friday February 25 to Saturday February 26. This too will be played on Vegas Strip Blackjack.
