Blackjack is one of the most popular games in casinos in Europe and North America, some scholars believe that the birth of this game occurred in the seventeenth century with the French cards at the time and was called Vingt et Un.

The French had the habit of playing with sailors, soldiers or English merchants that shaped the game like Blackjack where winning hands are the ace and jack of spades. The BlackJack arrived in North America thanks to the French colonialists and was immediately a great success. The state of Nevada made it official and legalized in the early twentieth century, this is why the Blackjack is a game that has brought success to Las Vegas.

The object of blackjack is to beat the dealer by a score of 21 or close to it, one of the rules to be respected for not leaving the game is to not exceed its value a bit as with the card game 7:30 .

The value of the cards

* The boards that players choose are worth 1 or 11 points.
* J, Q, K, and 10 worth 10 points.
* The cards from 2 to 9 have their face value.

When the first two cards of a player’s hand are an Ace and a card value of 10 will have a Blackjack, the player then receives the win unless the dealer also makes Blackjack. In this case there are no winners or losers so the game is a draw.

He who gets a 21 with a lower number of cards wins. Players can bet on each hand, there is the possibility to challenge the dealer in contemporary art.
