Blackjack

Get closes to 21 without going over.

Blackjack, also known as twenty-one and pontoon in British English , is one of the most popular casino card games in the world. Its precursor was "vingt-et-un" which originated in French casinos around 1700, and which did not offer the 3:2 bonus for a two-card 21.

When the game was first introduced in the United States, it wasn't very popular so gambling houses tried various bonus payouts to get the players to the tables. One such bonus was a 10-to-1 payout if the player's hand consisted of the Ace of Spades and a black Jack (either the Jack of Clubs or the Jack of Spades). This was called a "blackjack" for obvious reasons and the name stuck even though the bonus payout was soon abolished. Much of blackjack's popularity is due to the mix of chance with elements of skill and decision making, and the publicity that surrounds the practice of card counting, a skill with which players can turn the odds of the game in their favor by making betting decisions based on the values of the cards known to remain in the deck.
