The game of Blackjack is a very popular card game in any online casino. The game is simple to play, but difficult to give up because you really get involved in it. The history of Blackjack is rather cloudy, but still there are the facts which are established now.
It's commonly considered that the game of Blackjack first appeared in France during the 17th century. Probably blackjack game is related to a French game "Vingt-et-Un" which means "Twenty-and-one".
Vingt-et-Un is quite similar to Blackjack but still there are some differences. First of all it was only a dealer who was allowed to double. The goal was to reach a "natural" or a total of 21. If a dealer got a natural the others would pay him triple. Secondly, a player could bet after each round what is not like in modern Blackjack.
The game of Vingt-et-Un was originated in French Casinos and migrated to the United States in the 1800's.Since that time Blackjack has been a popular game and it's still popular today. The name of the game is connected with its goal. So the basic aim is to reach a total value of the number 21.
The name 'Blackjack' has its own history. In the 1930s, when the legalization of gambling reached Nevada, casino owners were interested in attracting more players to their casinos. So a special feature was introduced to them. If a player got a Jack of Spades and an Ace of Spades as the first two cards dealt to them, the player had a special payout. Later such benefits were canceled because the game achieved a high level of popularity. However, the name Blackjack is known to every gambler and the game continues to be extremely successful.
