Blackjack is possibly one of the most well-known games gambled on in casinos. Black jack is also referred to as "twenty one" or Chemin de Fer. The game is a combination of luck and skills coupled with choices. The card game has adapted over a period of time. Players have specialized in certain abilities like "card card counting," which allows them to shift the edge in the game in the players direction. The game has been in existence since the 18th century. References can be located in historical documents to a game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which means twenty one in French, and is thought of as the ancestor to blackjack.

The card game was at first not very well-liked in the states. This led to the casinos trying different features like providing a bonus in case of a ten to one payout, if the black jack player got a "black" jack and an ace of spades. The jack could be either the jack of spades or clubs. After the card game got well-liked, the reward payout before long disappeared from the rules.

Any hand which achieves a sum of twenty one is considered a winner. The total should not exceed twenty-one, in which case the hand is said to be "bust." The aim of every player is to best the dealer. If both the player and the dealer have the same score, it is called "push" (a tie), with not either the black jack player or the casino winning the hand.
