Blackjack is one of the most favoured games bet on in betting houses. Blackjack is also known as "twenty one" or "pontoon." The game is a mix of luck and skills coupled with decision-making. The card game has evolved over a set amount of time. Players have specialized in specific skills like "card card counting," which allows them to turn the edge in the game in the players direction. The card game has been in existence since the 18th century. References can be found in historical documents to a card game known as "vingt-et-un," which in French means Twenty One, and is deemed as the ancestor to blackjack.

The game was initially not very well-liked in the u.s.. This led to the betting houses trying a number of features like providing a bonus like a 10-to-1 payout, if the player was dealt an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either the jack of clubs or jack of spades. Once the game became well-known, the reward pay out quickly vanished from the rules.

Any hand which achieves a value of twenty-one is deemed a winner. The value can not be in excess of 21, if it does the hand is said to be "bust." The goal of each player is to best the dealer. If both the player and the dealer have the identical hand value, it’s referred to as a "push" (a tie), with not either the player or the croupier coming away with a win on the hand.
