While online casinos will prominently display their list of slots tournaments that they are hosting, it is possible to find online blackjack tournaments. I do not need to say again why blackjack is superior to slots. Actually some of the online blackjack tournaments that are offered are quite nice.
Take for example the online blackjack tournament series being offered by Online Vegas. Every single Monday, Wednesday and Friday players can play in a twenty four hour blackjack tournament for all of $0.99.
Yes, it will cost you one penny less than a dollar to play in one of these blackjack tournaments. Granted you are only playing for a percentage of the pot, but it is better than nothing. And not too shabby when you consider that you are playing for only $0.99 and it is a twenty four hour tournament.
The $0.99 entry fee will get you 50 tournament credits to play with. After that rebuys are $2.49 for another 50 tournament credits.
Each tournament starts at 8 pm on the starting day—meaning 8 pm on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday—and runs through 8 pm of the following day—meaning 8 pm on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday respectively.
There is one downside to these online blackjack tournaments. There are two variations of blackjack being used and they are alternated so that one tournament will have one variation and the next will have the other variation. One variation is Vegas Strip, which is just fine and is one of the standard forms of blackjack to play.
However, the other variation is Perfect Pairs. And no variation of blackjack involving side bets should ever be played. And do not tell me that it can be played without making the side bet because the payout for a natural blackjack in Perfect Pairs is not 3-2, making that variation not worth the time or credits.
So if you find yourself looking for something to do on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday night, give the online blackjack tournaments at Online Vegas a try. Or at least the tournaments played out with Vegas Strip Blackjack.
