One of the great advances of online casino technology is the capability to support multi-player games. So now online gamblers are not only limited to playing on their own, they can now play against friends, people from all over the world and even with live dealers. One particular form popular among many Canadians is the blackjack league. Run by the prestigious group, Fortune Lounge, you can now join the International Blackjack League in Canada or from anywhere in the world if you happen to be outside of the country. Operators forming part of this group are Platinum Play, Royal Vegas and Vegas Palms. When it comes to the blackjack league there are various options from which you can choose. We’ll at some of these in more detail next.

To play in a blackjack tournament you’ll need be a registered user of casino. You then head over to the tournaments section and choose your particular tournament. This could be free-play, sit and go or scheduled buy-in tournaments.

The sit and go tournaments most closely resemble those you’ll find in a traditional casino. Where you arrive at a table at any time you wish and begin wagering, essentially playing against the house in the company of other players. With these sit and go formats there’s no minimum number of players required and you’ll only be able to join if there are seats available.

The free-play feature is just that – you don’t wager for real money but often, to entice players to play for real, the casino will offer some free credit prizes for those who play this format.

The scheduled buy-in tournaments are where things get interesting. Game times are listed on the website and there are minimum and maximum player limits. The tournament is divided into various numbers of rounds. Some of these rounds are elimination rounds, where the players with the lowest chips will be eliminated. Add to the drama, there is a nominal entry fee for this tournament which goes towards a jackpot prize pool. After the final round has been played the winner, the one who has won the most or minimized his/her loss the most will walk away with the pre-advertised jackpot amount.

We’ve received some requests from players wanting to know if there are dedicated Canadian tournaments online. At present all tournaments are open to all players from regulated markets around the world, so at this point the facility to solely play with Canadian players does not exist.

It’s important to know the basic rules of blackjack before you enter a tournament – this will only improve your chances of doing well in these tournaments.

We hope you find luck playing these fun-filled blackjack leagues and that you return to our site again to keep updated on all the latest in the online casino world in Canada and beyond.
