Blackjack Rules and History

Like most long-standing popular games, the history of blackjack is somewhat obscure.  Most people believe it evolved from the French vingt-et-un (twenty-one), which originated in French casinos around 1700, and did not offer the 3:2 bonus for a two-card 21.  The current incarnation of the game was originally intended by casino operators as a diversion for the wives of men playing the craps table.  Over time blackjack has become the most popular table game in casinos worldwide.  The rules are fairly simple, but to play it without giving the house too big an edge involves some strategy.  Read about the history of the game and the rules here at ReadyBetGo.
