Blackjack Champ has readers all over the world, and most of them don’t live anywhere near Las Vegas. But when a land-based event of this magnitude comes along, we feel obliged to report it. This weekend, at the Las Vegas Hilton Casino in the heart of the Vegas Strip, two massive blackjack tournaments are going to rock the town for six days straight.

It all kicks off Friday the 22nd, with the $30K Stars and Stripes BJ Tournament. This first event lasts for three days. Then on Monday the 25th, things really start moving with the start of the casino’s semi-annual $100,000 Blackjack Tournament. Entry into both events is determined by a player’s history with the Vegas Hilton Casino, but non-qualifying guests can buy-in to the first tournament.

$30K Stars and Stripes BJ Tournament

  • Las Vegas Hilton (Las Vegas, NV)
  • May 22 to May 24
  • $0.00 entry fee for qualified guests, $599 for non-qualified guests
  • $30,000 prize pool. 1st=$15,000

$100,000 Blackjack Tournament

  • Las Vegas Hilton (Las Vegas, NV)
  • May 24 to May 27
  • Free with suited blackjack on $10 or higher bet before 24 May

If you are in Vegas this weekend, it’s still possible to qualify for a seat in the big tournament – just get a suited blackjack on a bet of $10 or more, and you are in!

For players who live far away from Vegas, we have good news – if you head on over to Millionaire Casino, you too can play in a blackjack tournament this weekend! The stakes aren’t quite as high, but it’s still worth your time. The buy-in is just $10 which gets you a $200 stake, and the prize pool is $5,000, so there is plenty of cash to go around.
