If you're looking for one of the best selections of
online blackjack tournaments and a good chance at
staking claim to guaranteed tournament pots, US-facing Rushmore
Casino's Blackjack Bowl tournaments are the way to go.
First off, for anybody unfamiliar with the Blackjack
Bowl, it's one of the longest running and largest
blackjack tournaments offered at an online casino.
For Rushmore, this is the third season of the
Blackjack Bowl, in essence making it Blackjack Bowl III.
Unlike a normal slots or blackjack tournament lasting
only a few days, or even a couple of months for that
matter, Blackjack Bowl spans twenty-one months. No
matter that the tournament has already started (there
are roughly over 120 days left), because tt's an ongoing
tournament that awards cash winnings along the way, with
a prize pool hovering around the $50,000 mark.
Blackjack Bowl III is broken into three stages, the
first of which ia a collection of three weekly
tournaments every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
Monday's tournament is called the $7 Playoff and has a
$7 entry fee. The prize pool is $25, with $15 going to
first place, $7.50 going to second and $2.50 to third.
Thursday's tournament has a $14 entry and a $50 prize
pool. Saturday's contest has a $21 entry and divvies out
$75 to the top three finishers. It may not sound like
much, but this is just the beginning. Furthermore, and
most importantly, the top winners get to move onto the
second stage of the tournament. Think of the weekly
tournaments as a great way to experience tournament
action while winning a few extra bucks at the same time.
As mentioned, there is a second stage of the
Blackjack Bowl III tournament, and it's called the Bowl
of the Week. This is when the prize pools start to sound
more interesting. Every Sunday night, the Bowl of the
Week takes place, offering a $1,000 prize pool, with
first place pocketing $420, first runner up receiving
$250, third place nabbing $150, fourth place earning
$100 the fifth place finisher on the winner's list
getting $80. For players who did not win seats during
the weekly qualifying tournaments, buy-ins can be had
The third stage of the Blackjack Bowl III fittingly
is the Bowl of the Month. With a $2,000 prize pool, this
tournament is double the pot of the Bowl of the Week,
thus giving out double the winnings for the top five
finishers. Like before the top five finishers of each
weekly bowl will be given a free seat to the Bowl of the
Month, while buy-ins can be had for $99.
As you might have surmised, all of this leads to the
final event of the Blackjack Bowl III. This is the
Blackjack Bowl, and has a massive prize pool of $21,000.
Again, all the players who made the winner's list for
all the preceding weekly and monthly bowl tournaments
will receive free entry into the ultimate blackjack
tournament, with the top 12 finishers receiving cash
winnings and $7,000 going to the first place winner
alone. Even if you did not participate in any of the
weekly and monthly blackjack bowls, entry into the grand
finale can be bought with a $250 entry fee.
