September 13, 2005 (Las Vegas, USA) – GameAccount, the #1 online P2P and skill gaming provider, this week officially launched “Tournament Blackjack”, a unique person-to-person (P2P) skill-based adaptation of the ever popular casino game. The game, which signals a growing maturity within the Skill Gaming sector, will be officially unveiled today at the Las Vegas Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the leading trade event for the worldwide casino and gaming entertainment community attended by over 25,000 industry professionals from around the world.
In this exciting skill-based version of Blackjack, players engage in ‘Heads-Up!’ play against online opponents, never directly against the ‘House’. Starting with an imaginary chip stack of $10,000, your objective is to build a larger chip stack than your opponent with the exact same sequence of cards dealt to both players and the automated in-game dealer. This represents a compelling opportunity for new and veteran players of Blackjack to demonstrate their own ‘edge’ instead of competing directly against the traditional ‘House’ edge.
Tournament Blackjack launched with a wide variety of instant-action cash tournaments catering to both the casual gamer and the veteran Blackjack player. Participating players can double their money instantly by entering cash tournaments with entry fees as low as US$2.00 or as high as US$900.00.
Andy Bell, Casino & Gaming Manager for GameAccount licensee BetCORP Plc (operators of BetWWTS.com and CyberSportsbook.com), “Tournament Blackjack represents a compelling opportunity for sportsbook, casino and poker operators to generate incremental revenues from existing customers and re-activate lapsed customers with an exciting and instantly recognisable skill-based gaming opportunity. We’re very excited about GameAccount’s Tournament Blackjack and its potential to be skill-gaming’s killer application for eGaming operators generating serious money, very quickly”
“Adding GameAccount’s unique blend of Skill Games is a superb opportunity for eGaming operators not only from a revenue perspective but also due to the fact that advertising Skill Games is legal in most of the United States and the rest of the world,” says Meir Moses, Marketing Manager at GameAccount. “GameAccount’s proven P2P & Skill Gaming solutions allow eGaming operators to build their brand and reputation within key jurisdictions unencumbered by the legal or regulatory considerations applicable to traditional gaming products.”
GameAccount will be exhibiting at the Global Gaming Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, September 13-15, 2005 in Las Vegas, NV, USA.
