Black Jack absolutely is one of the more favored games played in casinos. Black jack is also known as 21 or Chemin de Fer. The game is a mix of chance and skills coupled with choices. The card game has adapted over a period of time. Players have specialized in certain abilities like "card counting," which allows them to turn the odds of the game in the players direction. The game has been around since the 18th century. References can be found in historical scriptures to a card game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which means twenty one in French, and is thought of as the precursor to blackjack.

The game was originally not very well-liked in the united states. This caused the gambling houses attempting various features like providing a bonus in case of a ten to one pay out, if the blackjack player had an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either clubs or spades. Once the card game got popular, the reward pay out soon disappeared from the game.

Any hand which achieves a value of twenty-one is considered a winner. The total should not exceed twenty-one, if it does the hand is considered to be "bust." The target of any player is to best the house. If the blackjack player and the croupier both have the same hand value, it’s referred to as a "push" (a tie), with neither the black jack player or the croupier coming away with a win on the hand.
