The game of blackjack will get one of its most glamorous competitions this November, when the Gibraltar Blackjack Tournament takes place at a luxury hotel in 14 November.
The competition will see four highly-skilled blackjack players take part in the grand final which is the climax of one month’s intense blackjack activity on the LadyLucks site. Already we have seen some impressive playing, but with the option for anyone to buy into the tournament, here’s what we can expect.
The gaming began at the start of October with four separate weeks of qualifying rounds. Gamers were encouraged to visit the LadyLucks site and reach the top of the leaderboard within each given week to book their place in the grand final.
Week one saw Richard C. pick up a very commanding £1,311, whilst Flexer took £1,100 in winnings on their way to the final in week two. Mazza managed to win a respectable £825 in week three, whilst the final week saw Vikguppers take a massive £2,272 on their way to Gibraltar.
The format of the Gibraltar Blackjack Tournament offers the perfect mix of online and real-life playing. By offering anyone the chance to play in the qualifying rounds before aiming to reach the main grand final, it shows just how blackjack has managed to evolve in the 21st century.
The LadyLucks site have even introduced a blackjack mobile app so that it’s now easier than ever to have a quick game and pick up some big winnings. Such technology is key for those wishing have a little online practice before enjoying the fun in Gibraltar as there’s the chance to buy into the final for as little as £250.
The Grand Final
With a guaranteed prize pool of £10,000 there’s never been a better incentive to try a little blackjack in this European gaming hotspot. The four winners of the qualifying rounds will be keen to seize the winner’s £5,000 in takings, but all will enjoy the VIP treatment as all flights, transfers, food and drink will be paid for, and the players will each get their own guided tour of this iconic Mediterranean destination.
The final itself takes place in the prestigious Sunborn Yacht Hotel that features its very own casino along with all the luxuries that the competitive gamer could need. So with less than two weeks to go until this highly-anticipated occasion, there’s never been a better time to get involved and try your hand at this legendary game.
