Blackjack, also known as 21, is a casino card game played against a dealer. The object of the blackjack game is to get as close as possible to a sum of 21 without busting (going over 21). Take your pick from the following blackjack variations:
Did you know that the first written mention of this game, or rather its predecessor, is found in a book by Miguel de Cervantes? His tale “Rinconete y Cortadillo” written in 1601 talks about two boys who have run away from their homes because their families mistreated them. To survive while on the run, they had to rob and cheat while playing cards. The game they played was called twenty-one and the object was to reach 21 points without going over. Sounds familiar?
Our American gaming colleagues are responsible for the game of twenty-one changing its name to Blackjack. When they first started playing it, a special bonus was given if a player’s hand showed Ace of spades and either a jack of clubs or jack of spades - a “black” jack, in fact. Such bonuses don’t exist anymore but the name stuck and Blackjack can today be played in every single casino in the world.
