Fans of web blackjack are being given the opportunity to win a slot to the 1st live London Blackjack Open Final where they can compete head-to-head for their portion of the 25,000 pounds prize money.
The London Blackjack Open Final is being hosted by well-known skill games provider GameAccount Network and will take place at Casino at The Empire in London in Leicester Square on January 30th, 2010 with a 10,000 pounds top prize on offer.
Blackjack enthusiasts can qualify for one of the thirty-two sots at well-known online sports wagering site like PaddyPower.com, BoyleSPorts.com, BlueSq.com and StanJames.com. The event will be covered live for broadcast on The Poker Channel and over the web alongside tutorial segments and blackjack player interviews.
Online qualifiers have already started with twice-daily blackjack tournaments taking place for a sot in a weekly semi-final where two blackjack players will win a slot to the London Blackjack Open Final. These events will continue until January 23rd, 2009 with further entry details and information available at GameAccount.com.
Per Petersen, the Marketing Director for GameAccount said that they are very proud to be hosting one of the biggest blackjack events of the year on behalf of some of the top names in the gaming and betting market.
Petersen said that the game of blackjack has been a popular fixture in casino facilities but in terms of head-to-head tournament game play, it has always come second to the game of poker as players perceive a lower skill requirement to the game.
Petersen added that they have seen increasing number of players of GameAccount's own player-to-player version of blackjack and they are one hundred percent sure that the London Blackjack Open will be a huge success for their network partners.
