Chemin de Fer Development

Black Jack is possibly one of the more popular games played in casinos. Black jack is also referred to as "twenty one" or Chemin de Fer. The game is a combination of luck and ability coupled with decision-making. The game has adapted over a period of time. Players have specialized in specific abilities like "card card counting," which allows them to turn the odds of the game in their direction. The game has been in existence since the 18th century. References can be found in historical scriptures to a game known as "vingt-et-un," which in French means 21, and is thought of as the ancestor to black jack.

The game was initially not very popular in the united states. This led to the casinos trying different things like offering a reward like a ten to one payout, if the blackjack player got an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either the jack of clubs or jack of spades. After the card game became well-known, the reward pay out quickly vanished from the rules.

Any hand which reaches a total of twenty one is considered a winner. The value should not be in excess of twenty one, if it does the hand is considered to be "bust." The aim of any player is to defeat the casino. If the blackjack player and the dealer both have an identical hand value, it’s called "push," with not either the player or the house winning the hand.
