There is some evidence that a blackjack-like game was popular in the Roman Empire about 2,000 years ago, but we probably wouldn’t even recognize that game as blackjack today. However, it is established that in France during the 18th century, a game of chance was started with the name Vingt-et-Un, which means exactly 21 in French. In Spain, at the same time, there was a game called 31. However, it was Vingt-et-Un which then became the most popular card game on the European continent. Blackjack is not very complicated. The player must try to beat the dealer’s score and preferably get a score of 21 (Blackjack). At the same time, the player must not exceed exactly 21 points. Then the player goes “bust” (gets fat) and the dealer automatically wins the pot.
After the player has placed his bet, the dealer deals two starting cards to the player and two cards to himself, one of which is face down. The player acts first and must now choose whether he or she wants to stay, draw, double, split, take insurance, or surrender. You can normally double on all cards while splitting can only happen if you have a pair in your hand. Insurance is offered if there is a risk that the dealer has Blackjack. A surrender is an option offered when the player is dealt certain hands that have very low winning chances.
