Atlantic City Blackjack Tournaments

Atlantic City is one of the top destinations for live blackjack tournaments. Throughout the year, tournaments are scheduled at Atlantic City casinos. There are low limit tournaments that casino visitors can enter while on vacation as well as more prestigious tournaments with higher entry fees geared towards blackjack big shots and professionals.

Of course, most Atlantic City blackjack tournaments use Atlantic City blackjack rules. These rules state that players may split only once and may only hit one card to split aces, the dealer stands on soft 17, and four, six or eight decks are used. The actual tournament rules may vary. However, Ultimate Blackjack tournaments are popular in Atlantic City casinos and these are played by Elimination Blackjack rules.

In Elimination Blackjack players are eliminated every few hands as the tournament progresses. In each elimination stage, the player with the least chips is eliminated from the tournament. Players are also eliminated when they run out of chips. The winner is the last player standing, or the player with the most chips at the end of the allotted number of rounds.

If you are planning a trip to Atlantic City and are interested in playing in a blackjack tournament then it is a good idea to call ahead to find out what events are going on. While blackjack tournaments are popular in Atlantic City they aren't an every day occurrence. Do some research before hand to find out which casinos are offering tournaments, when they are taking place, how much the entry fee is and what prizes are being offered.
