About the origins of the casino game blackjack, not everything is known, as is the case with so many games. The game is very similar to the “one and twenties” game in French called “Vingt et un”. As far as we can go back in the history of blackjack, the game originated somewhere in France. The game is, as with almost all games, not the same with the current rules but has undergone an evolution. It would have arisen from other card games and after a long road of development around 1700 it was offered for the first time in French Casinos. Somewhere between 1800 and 1900 the game blew over to America and at the end of the 19th century the game was first offered in American casinos. After this, it gained momentum and can no longer be ignored and the game is played worldwide in casinos and online.
The goal of the game is to achieve a higher total number than the bank without exceeding a total of 21.
