English Harbour is a well-established online casino that opened its virtual doors back in 1997. It has a well-known reputation for offering a quality online gambling experience. What is more is that they offer online blackjack tournaments all week!
Each week English Harbour will offer two online blackjack tournaments each week. One is a weekday tournament and the other is a weekend tournament.
The weekday tournament is known as the Head 2 Head and is played with US style online blackjack from the Real Time Gaming arsenal of online casino games. The Head 2 Head carries an entry fee of $5 and has players playing for the pot. As a weekday online blackjack tournament, it runs from a Monday and ends on a Thursday.
Now the Weekend Blackjack Classic, that is the bigger of the two online blackjack tournaments at English Harbour.
The Weekend Blackjack Classic begins on a Friday and will run through the weekend, ending on a Sunday. This tournament cost $10 to enter instead of $5, but players are not playing for the pot in the Classic. Instead they are playing for a portion of a cash prize of $5,000. But like the Head 2 Head, the Classic is played out on the US Blackjack game.
Thankfully US Blackjack is used in both tournaments rather than some blackjack variation. Some online casinos will use Perfect Pairs from time to time in an online blackjack tournament, which just does not seem right when considering that tournaments are meant to award players that the online casino should use a variation with unfriendly player rules.
So if you are ever in the mood for an online blackjack tournament, there is always some tournament action going on at English Harbour.
While the world of online casinos is rife with online slots tournaments, there are also online blackjack tournaments as well. It is possible to find tournaments with larger entry fees aimed at players who are serious players.
But what about players who still working on their online blackjack playing skills and who think they are ready to try a tournament—they might not feel up to spending $25 or more to enter a tournament? And what about players who are looking for a competitiveness of a tournament but are looking more to play for fun or for tournament practice? Are there any online blackjack tournaments out there for those such players?
The answer is yes.
Online Vegas offers online blackjack tournaments with only a $0.99 entry fee. Such a tournament is perfect for the novice player who is looking to begin getting their feet wet for tournament play. These tournaments are also perfect for the experienced online blackjack player looking to have a little competitive fun.
These nice little $0.99 online blackjack tournaments are offered at Online Vegas every Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Each tournament is a twenty four hour tournament, beginning at 8pm on the starting day and ending at 8 pm on the next day.
For the $0.99 entry fee players are given 50 tournament credits to play with for a percentage of the pot. If a player should play through their tournament balance, rebuys are available for $2.49 which will recharge a player’s tournament balance.
There are two types of blackjack games being used in these tournaments and they alternate each time: Vegas Strip and Perfect Pairs. I recommend playing in the Vegas Strip tournaments.
Because these online blackjack tournaments cost so little to enter they are good for players new to playing in tournaments as well as for seasoned players looking for a fun tournament or practice. Online Vegas has done well to offer these online blackjack tournaments.
