How to PlayHow to Play Multiplayer Blackjack Tournaments
With free and real play blackjack tournaments running all day long pick your seat and play now to see if you’re the best around the table!…just follow the steps below:
- Register at Ladbrokescasino.com and download our free casino software.
- In the lobby, double click the Tournaments option and choose Blackjack.
- The available blackjack tournaments are displayed.
- Select the blackjack tournament you want to join. Note: You can only join a tournament if the status of the tournament is open.
- You can view the details of the blackjack tournament you wish to join. The following information is available to you:
- Click the Join button.
- Once you have double clicked on the tournament you want to play you will be asked to supply an alias (only if you don’t have a multiplayer alias already). Simply decide what you would like your alias to be called and enter.
- Once you have confirmed your entry, just wait for the tournament to begin (you can carry on playing your favourite games in the meantime). Sit and Go tournaments will begin as soon as enough players have registered, whereas a scheduled tournament will begin exactly at the time stated. You will be informed that the tournament is starting if you are logged into the download casino.
- When the tournament starts you will be playing against the dealer, as in single player blackjack, but you will also be competing against other real players. Build up as many chips as possible (or simply lose less than your opponents!) to climb to the top of the leader board.
- Be sure to familiarise yourself with the specific tournament rules by clicking on the tab “Rules” in the lobby. Each tournament is made up of a number of hands in each round. Depending on the structure of the tournament (and the size of the field) then winners progress from each round to the next until there is a winner.
- When the game begins you have a number of options, all similar to normal single player blackjack. First of all you must choose your bet size. This is done using the slider (or + and -) to select the bet amount and then clicking “Place Bet”. The dealer will then deal cards to every player, who in turn choose to “Hit”, “Stand”, “Double Down” (on 9, 10 or 11) or “Split” (should your two cards be the same – note you will double your initial bet if you do this). Note that the dealer button will move to the left after every hand, meaning a different player begins each hand.
- Should you select “Double Down”, your bet amount will be doubled and your third card will also be hidden from your opponents!
- If the dealer is showing an Ace then you have the opportunity to take insurance.
- Depending on the tournament rules, you may have a “Secret Bet” available to you. To use this simply click “Secret Bet” as well as the “Place Bet” button and your next bet will be hidden from all other players. If you or your opponents have a “Secret Bet” available to them they will have an “S” button to the left side of their name.
- If you do not place a bet within the specified time you will “Sit Out” and the minimum bet will be placed for you. To take control of your player again, simply uncheck “Sit Out” in the bottom right hand corner.
- Clicking “Auto Bet” in the right hand corner will enable you to automatically place your last bet amount for successive hands.
- If an elimination hand (or hands) are specified in the tournament rules, then the player with least amount of chips at the end of that hand will be eliminated from the tournament.
- Depending on the structure of the tournament the winner (or highest ranked players) of the round will progress to the next round of the tournament. The player with the most chips at the end of the entire blackjack tournament wins.
