How the tournament works:

  1. Echo Casino arrives about 30 minutes prior to the start time to set up and begin making announcements to guests that a free blackjack tournament will be starting shortly.
  2. Guests can sign up to play in the tournament or can join in during any round if there is an open seat. We host two Blackjack Tournaments; each one lasts 1 hour.
  3. Players are given $10,000 in “play chips” and are dealt 5 hands. At the end of 5 hands, the players with remaining play money will be added to the leaderboard. We’ll host as many rounds as possible during each tournament.
  4. 10 minutes prior to the end of each tournament the top 7 high money winners from the leaderboard will be invited back up for a final round to compete for prizes. During the final round each players’ winnings are reset and they start anew with $10,000 so that it is a level playing field.
  5. We then announce the winners and give out prizes (if you want to).

Key facts:

  • Guests / patrons get to play in a Blackjack Tournament for free with the chance for the top 2 winners to get a prize (gift card, free drink/meal, swag, etc).
  • No license or permit is needed – this is completely legal so long as no money exchanges hands between the players and the hosts.
  • Guests have a ton of fun playing Blackjack at no risk, can learn how to play in a non-threatening environment, can watch others’ play to cheer them on, and have some fun!
  • We bring everything that is needed including a professional table, chips, cards, pieces, and a knowledgeable and fun dealer!
  • One table can accommodate ~70 guests throughout the event. We offer multiple tables for larger events upon request.
