Online Blackjack Overview

Although the exact origins of Blackjack are unknown, researchers agree that it most likely began in French casinos around 1700. “Vingt-et-Un,” which translates to “Twenty-one,” was the name of the French cards. These cards are most likely derived from the popular card game Chemin de Fer at the time.

Besides basic Blackjack you get, Pontoon, Face Up 21, Caribbean 21, Super 21, and Match Play 21.
