How to play Online Blackjack Tournaments

These tournaments are played over several rounds and Players get eliminated as it progresses according to the Online Blackjack Tournament rules.

The Rules of Online Blackjack Tournaments:
- Players have to be registered in a tournament if they want to take part in it.
- Depending on the rules of the tournament, the maximum number of Players can be limited – or not.
- All tourneys are played to the end.
- If a Player withdraws from a tournament before it is over, their entry fee will be forfeited.
- If a Player doesn't return to a tournament, they will forfeit their entry fee.
- If you aren't logged on to the casino system at the time a tournament that you've registered for starts, you'll forfeit your entry fee. A tournament is considered over when either the time limit has expired or a Player's credits are used up. Should a tournament that's in progress get cancelled, and cannot be paused and postponed by a short delay, Players will each get a full refund of their total entry fee to the tournament.
Should a Player get disconnected from the system during tournament play, the following rules are effected:
- If a Player gets disconnected during play, the game automatically plays on their behalf. It does so by hitting until a soft 12 or better is achieved – thereafter the hand will Stand.
- If a Player manages to re-connect within the tournament time, they can continue playing in the tour- nament.
Do take note: Tournament credits only act as counters in the tournament and don't have any monetary value or cash-out value.
