Blackjack comes to Gibraltar

Although blackjack is one of the world’s best-known and most respected card games, it looks to be showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to providing gamers with big cash winnings in exotic locations.

This is because this month sees the Gibraltar Blackjack Tournament taking place in the beautiful Mediterranean location that promises the lucky winner some seriously large prizes.

The winning amount will be part of the £10,000 guaranteed pool that will be up for grabs on 14 November. Interestingly, the way that players have been able to reach the final is by taking part in four separate qualifying rounds at the LadyLucks site.

Each of the four qualifiers will have won their group, and also picked up some impressive prize winnings along the way. Not that they’ll need any extra financial assistance in Gibraltar as the tournament treats each of the finalists to all-expenses paid flights, transfers, food and drink, and even a VIP tour of this most iconic of British enclaves.

The fact that such a tournament has been created is a surefire sign of the success that LadyLucks have had with their online blackjack games. Furthermore, the site has also expanded the ways in which players can compete by having a highly user-friendly gaming interface so that players can easily try their hand at games of blackjack and roulette. And with a £20 bonus for all newcomers, it provides the perfect way for beginners to get to grips with this fun and profitable game.

One of the great things about blackjack is that it requires very little in terms of playing knowledge to understand how the game works. However, the real skill lies in the different playing styles which allows for a complex psychological way for competitors to try their luck against their opponents.
