HISTORY OF BLACKJACK

The origins of blackjack can be traced back to a game called "vingt-en-un ("21") which was played in France in the early seventeenth century. Players received a special payout when their hand consisted of an Ace and Jack of Spades – a black Jack and this is most likely where the name of the game we play came from. An Italian game, called "seven and a half", played in the same period, required players to combine the values of the cards in their hand and had a concept of going bust and this was most likely incorporated into the game of blackjack. After the French Revolution, blackjack was brought to the US where it became immediately popular. It is now available online, as well as at Mobile Casinos.

CARDS IN BLACKJACK

Each card in the game of blackjack has a value and these values are added together to form a total hand value. Cards two through ten have their face value; face cards have a value of ten and Aces have a value of one or eleven depending on the value of the other cards in the hand.

AIM OF THE GAME

The aim of the game of blackjack is to achieve a hand total of closer to 21 than the dealer without going over (bust). Blackjack (an Ace and a ten) is the highest hand that can be achieved.

HOW TO PLAY BLACKJACK

Each player is dealt two cards face down and the dealer is dealt one card face down and one card face up. Each player, in turn, will then play their hand. There are many choices that a player has and some of them depend on the casino you are playing at and the rules of the individual game. Players may be able to take out an insurance bet if the dealer's up-card is an Ace. This will be paid out if the dealer has Blackjack. Some casinos may allow players to surrender and this may be allowed as an early surrender (before the dealer checks his hand) or only as a late surrender (after the dealer checks his hand). Players can split two identical cards, place an additional bet and play them as two separate hands. Players can double down on their first two cards which allows them to double their bet and receive one additional card. Generally players stand (receive no more cards and end their turn) or hit (receive another card) until they go bust or stand. Once the players have completed their turns, the dealer plays. All hands are compared to the dealer's and winnings are paid out.
