Few and Far Between Online Blackjack Tournaments

For US citizens, finding an online casino with blackjack tournaments is no easy task. Well, that's not entirely true. The popular Rushmore Casino and Cherry Red have long been the place to go for online blackjack tournaments. However, there simply has not been that many options for blackjack players, especially when compared to the offering of online slots tournaments available these days.

Understandably, slots are the most popular of all online casino games with players. Furthermore, it's no surprise how much casinos embrace anything related to slots, whether it be slots bonuses or tournaments, for these entertaining and loaded games are indeed the "one-armed bandits". In other words, online casinos make more money overall off slots than they do on other games.

Being that Blackjack actually offers one of the lowest House Edges (when played with perfect blackjack strategy), let's just say that online casinos typically do not like to encourage unbridled action on the Blackjack table when they can do the same for slots. Nonetheless, some online casinos are willing to "take a hit" and offer online blackjack tournaments to the base of players who truly love the game of "21".

The blackjack savvy online casinos, like Cherry Red, will even offer Mano a Mano tournaments in addition to multi-tournaments (multiple players, multiple table and multiple tournament rounds). Mano a Mano is similar to online poker tournaments in that players compete directly against each other in head's up play.

So, going back to the original quandary of US players finding a varied selection of online blackjack tournaments (other than Cherry Red Casino and Rushmore), I am happy to report that the Club World Gaming group should be added to the list of reputable U.S. facing online blackjack tournament destinations. Specifically, it's Club USA Casino that is gaining momentum from the U.S. crowd - steadily building up a demand for online blackjack tournaments, and as such, greater prize pools altogether.

Club USA also offers a "blackjack compatible" welcome bonus and reload loyalty bonuses, meaning that blackjack wagers (penny for penny) will go toward the play-through requirement. Unlike most other bonuses that either exempt blackjack from meeting the wager requirement (going so far to disqualify bonus money if exempted games are wagered on before the entire play-through has been met), or only counting a very low percentage of wagers toward the play-through (sometimes as low as 5%), Club USA Casino offers a true blackjack bonus, imposing a moderate 50x on blackjack wagers with the only game restrictions being imposed on Craps, Baccarat, Roulette and Sic Bo. The bonus (claim code NEW100) is worth 100% up to $150 Free, and can also be used on Video Poker. The maximum cashout is 5x the bonus amount ($750), which is also a favorable term.

Visit Club USA Casino to open a fun-money and/or real-money account or read the OCS Club USA Casino Review for more information.
