Chemin de Fer is one of the most favored games participated in, in casinos. Blackjack is also referred to as 21 or "pontoon." The game is a combination of luck and skills coupled with choices. The card game has evolved over a period of time. Players have specialized in specific skills like "card counting," with which they turn the edge in the game in the players direction. The game has been around since the 18th century. References can be seen in historical documents to a card game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which means twenty one in French, and is considered the ancestor to blackjack.

The card game was originally not very popular in the u.s.. This led to the betting houses trying different features like offering a reward in case of a 10-to-1 payout, if the player had an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either the jack of clubs or jack of spades. After the card game became well-liked, the bonus pay out before long vanished from the game.

Any hand which reaches a total of 21 is deemed a winner. The total can not go beyond 21, if it does the hand is considered to be "bust." The goal of each player is to beat the dealer. If the black jack player and the dealer both have an identical hand value, it’s referred to as a "push," with not either the blackjack player nor the dealer coming away with a win on the hand.
