If you’re not a slots fan, it can sometimes be hard to find online casinos that offer you a good range of tournaments. Luckily, English Harbour and bandarqq are keen to run a number of excellent tournaments based around the games of roulette, blackjack, and video poker.
Roulette is one of the most popular games in the casino and once a week English Harbour runs “The Wheel Deal” – a tournament based on the game of European Roulette. Each tournament lasts a week with the prize pool being the value of the pot collected. This prize pool is then shared out among the top ten players with the overall winner picking up 30% of the pot, second place winning 20%, and third place picking up 15%. After that, the next two players each pocket 15% of the prize pool, and the last five players sharing the remaining 20%.
The entry fee is $5 and players can re-buy for a further $5 if they wish. The current “Wheel Deal” tournament will end on 11th February, and the next tournament will start on the same day.
English Harbour also offers two blackjack tournaments that run every week, both of which are played on the Blackjack Vegas Strip. The first of the tournaments are known as Head2Head and runs from Monday to Thursday. The entry fee costs all players $5 with the overall pot being shared by the top 20 players.
The second blackjack tournament, the Weekend Blackjack Classic, has a slightly higher entry fee of $10 and draws a higher number of players due to the fact that it has a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000. The top twenty players will share the money with the overall winner getting at least $2,500.
The next Blackjack Classic will run on 12th February and registration has already opened. To sign up, simply visit the English Harbour website and create a new free account.
Video Poker Tournaments
Video Poker has always been hugely popular among casino players, although it can be hard to find good tournaments to get involved in online. English Harbour has been running two weekly tournaments fora while now, and it’s good to see that they’ve recently added a third which runs for an entire month.
This third tournament is known as the Winter 100 Hand. It is run on the 100 Hand version of Deuces Wild and is therefore known for creating some heart-pounding action.
Once again, the collected pot is used as the prize pool, and seeing as the tournament runs for an entire month, it’s not difficult to imagine that the pot usually gets very attractive indeed.
Although the current Winter 100 Hand is still only in its second week, the prize pool has already reached $1,300. At the end of the month, this pot will be shared out among the twenty most successful players.
