Monthly Blackjack Tournament

Date of Post: Mar 8, 2016

If Blackjack is your game, we’ve got just the thing for you – a monthly Blackjack Tournament.

 

Join us every first Tuesday of the month for our Blackjack Tournament at Four Winds Casino New Buffalo! The fun begins with registration at 5 pm Eastern. There is no entry fee and each participant’s buy-in, of $60, is placed into the prize pool. If there is a full tournament, the top finishers may win a share of more than $7,500 in cash.

 

How to Enter

  1. Be a W Club member. If a guest is not a W Club member they can become one for free at the W Club with a valid photo ID.
  2. Pay the buy-in of $60 at the designated cashier cage. Players can receive an additional $1,000 in chips for the first round for a $5 add-on.
  3. Visit the registration table to randomly draw a session, table, and seat number for the tournament.
  4. Participants will then receive a tournament score card and will be escorted to their tournament seat to begin.

 

Tournament Structure
