Intercasino’s Blackjack Tournament

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Online tournaments are a great way to enjoy your favorite game, add the spirit of competition, and play for prizes at little to no risk. In short, they are pretty much the best part of any online casino. Too often, however, blackjack is left out of the tournament fun. Blackjack players tend to feel like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (at the beginning of the song, not at the end when he was cool) whenever tournaments are announced. There are countless poker and slot tournaments. Blackjack tournaments not so much.

That’s why when blackjack tournaments do come around, I make sure to play. There is one going on right now at Intercasino. The British online casino is currently holding an online blackjack tournament that starts today and ends February 7.

Because it is a tournament, the game is played slightly different than normal blackjack. You are still playing against the dealer, but you are also competing against the rest of the blackjack players. Here’s how it works: You are given £500 to play with and play normal online blackjack against the dealer and earn as much money as you can during a 30-minute span. Since you’re competing against others, I advise playing the game a little more aggressively than usual.

The six players with the highest balance after 30 minutes of play will earn prizes. First prize will win £100, second prize will take home £50, and those who finish third through sixth will walk away with £25 each.

To take part in the online blackjack tournament and have a chance to win prize money for a game that you love anyway, be sure to visit Intercasino while the tournament is still being held.
