The History of Blackjack

Blackjack was invented in the early 1700s and was originally called vingt-et-un, or twenty-one.

Today it’s one of the most popular casino card games in the world but it took awhile to catch on.

A casino in Evansville, Indiana, introduced the game to the States in 1910. The only way casinos could get poker players to give the game a chance was to award bonus payouts for valuable hands.

The biggest payout of all, $10 for every $1 bet went to the player who held the ace of spades and either of the black jacks. The name blackjack stuck.
