Blackjack AJLive Blackjack Tournament At Casino Tropez

Casino Tropez is going card crazy this month with their brand new weekly Live Blackjack tournament. The new tournament runs EVERY TUESDAY and is open to all online casino members.

All you have to do to join in on the action is play any of the featured Blackjack games at Casino Tropez and you will receive free entry to the tournament. The top 20 players will win $50 along with the satisfaction that they are the top Blackjack players at the Casino!

Here is some Blackjack lingo to help you on your way to knowing the most about one of the worlds most popular casino games.

Breaking Hand - A hand that doesn't contain an ace and is valued between 12 and 16 is known as a breaking or stiff hand. With this hand it is possible to go over 21 with the addition of just one more card.

Double Down - When you feel that you can beat the dealer with just one more card, you can double your original bet and draw one more card.

Hole Card - When all players have made their bets, and there is only 1 card left face down (the dealer's card), this card is known as the Hole Card.

Blackjack History
Did You Know... that Blackjack originates from 18th century France?

Originally called Vignt-Et-Un (twenty one) this game did not offer any bonus for having a card total of 21!

This bonus was added at a later date to increase the games popularity in America. The game's name was also changed to Blackjack when it was decided that the player would receive a 10-1 payout for having the Ace of Spades and a black Jack.

This huge payout was later abolished, but the name has stayed around until today!

New Slots: Wild Spirit
Take a look at the second of Casino Tropez's two new "Novel Slots" - Wild Spirit! Wild Spirit was recently launched at Online Casino Tropez and it is proving to be very popular indeed! The 5-reel, 20-line mystically themed slot machine has many special features and entertaining animated graphics which makes playing this game very enjoyable... and rewarding!

Wild Spirit slot features a unique Gamble option where players can double all or half of their line winnings with the turn of a card. Simply try and find the higher cards to win more cash on a winning spin.

This fun slot also features a fantastic bonus round where you visit a shaman to have your fortune told. With each magical symbol chosen, great prizes will be given. However, watch out for evil symbols as these will end the bonus game round.

Joke of the Month/b>
An angry old lady tapped the zookeeper indignantly on the shoulder.

"Those naughty monkeys of yours appear to be engaged in shooting dice. I demand that you break up the game at once."

"It's ok" shrugged the keeper, "They're keeping strictly within the law, Ma'am. They're only playing for peanuts!"
