- Monthly tournaments through to February next year, with 54 players advancing to final match
- Players that don’t make it to final can be drawn as a wild card and win up to $25,000 in promotional chips
Live! Casino & Hotel – formerly Maryland Live – which is a casino located in Hanover, MD is hosting its first ever $1 Million Blackjack Tournament Series.
Having begun on September 17, 2017, the brand new tournament series will run throughout autumn and winter before ending in February 2018.
The casino will run tournaments on a monthly basis until that point, which is when the final – the Championship Tournament for $500,000 – will be held.
54 players set to proceed to final
Each tournament consists of four rounds, which Live! Casino’s blackjack players will partake in once per month. In any given round, the winning players – it has been estimated that each month, the games will produce 54 winners – will get their seat for February’s final Championship Tournament. These people are in with a chance of winning up to $25,000 in promo chips.
The next tier up from this will take the top 24 monthly winners to final in the series: the Championship Tournament, worth $500,000 in cash.
Given that September’s monthly tournament has now passed, the next one will take place on October 29, 2017.
There is even good news for players who do not make it through the monthly tournaments. The last Blackjack Tournament party of the new series will host what will be called a “wild-card drawing,” given even the most unlucky players one final chance to make to the last round to compete for that half a million dollars.
Prestigious table game
Travis Lamb – who is the general manager at Live! Casino & Hotel – has said that many of the establishment’s most loyal customers come back time and time again due to the casino’s prestigious table game and blackjack tournaments.
He adds that the casino at large is excited to be offering so much money – a huge $1 million, to be exact – and that the staff based there are looking forward to hosting the competition over the next few months.
One final thing worth noting before you get playing: seats at the tournament are first-come, first-served – so get there early!
