Powered by Microgaming software, Jackpot City is an online casino that provides a variety of slot games and tournaments. One of the most popular is the upcoming blackjack tournament entitled “Survivor.” The first 250 players to register will receive a seat to participate.

Prize Pool

The tournament will be playing six deck European Blackjack with an entry fee of $20 and a guaranteed prize pool of $280 which will be shared by the top three winners. The first place prize is $130, second place will receive $90 and third place will be awarded $60. Although there are not large prizes, the competition is only 249 other players.

Survivor Blackjack Tournament Structure

The event is played over three rounds with only ten players surviving the first round. Each player will begin with 2,500 chips with a minimum wager of 10 chips and a maximum of 250 chips. The first round consists of only eight hands. In the second round, the top six players will advance. Each player begins with 3,500 chips with a minimum wager of 50 chips and a maximum of 500 chips. The second round is also comprised of only eight hands.

As expected, the final round has the most fierce competition among players. Only six hands are played throughout the entire round. Players begin with 5,000 chips and the minimum wager is 100 chips with a maximum wager of 1,000 chips. The top three players in this round will share the entire prize pool.

Double Exposure

For those blackjack players that do no like tournaments, there are a variety of other blackjack variants available at Jackpot City Casino. For instance, Double Exposure is a version that is easy for newcomers because both of the dealer’s cards are face-up. This makes for a much easier decision. However, to compensate for this edge, blackjack only pays even money.


A more challenging blackjack variant is Pontoon. This version is the exact opposite of Double Exposure in that both of the dealer’s cards are face-down. However, the player is compensated with blackjack that pays 2-to-1.

The Survivor Blackjack Tournament at Jackpot City online casino always draws the maximum 250 people due to the chances of winning. Stop by the casino today to try your luck at the tournament or one of the many other blackjack variants.
