The origin of the game Blackjack is still not fully understood. It is believed that Blackjack was first played in Italy or around 1700. Today, this card game is well known to all fans of excitement. According to opinion polls, it is Blackjack that is the favorite game of more than a third of the US population.

3. Blackjack Ban

In the US, blackjack has long been an illegal card game. At the same time, the ban only increased the popularity of the game.

It was then that underground games were legalized in Nevada.

4. Blackjack or "point" (Russian name of the game)

The Blackjack game is known to many fans of excitement under the name vingt-et-un, which means “twenty-one” in French. This gambling game received its popular name today in Nevada back in the 30s of the last century. In those years, land-based casinos tried to attract the maximum number of players by offering them very generous payouts. It is known that the largest bet at that time was a combination of clubs / jack of spades in combination with an ace of spades. This combination allowed the players to receive a payout, the size of which was ten times the bet. Despite the fact that generous payouts were quickly stopped, the name "Blackjack" or Black Jack remained to this day.

5. Blackjack and baseball


Blackjack is the most popular card game. However, many of the terms used during the game are borrowed from baseball. It is believed that the player to the left of the dealer is located, by analogy with baseball, at first base, and the card-lover, who is to his right, is at third. Experienced players tend to choose third base. This arrangement allows you to count cards, gaining an advantage over the gambling establishment and opponents.

6. Hall of Fame
