Chemin de Fer is possibly one of the more well-known games participated in, in casinos. Black jack is also referred to as 21 or "pontoon." The game is a mix of chance and ability combined with choices. The card game has changed over a set amount of time. Players have specialized in certain skills like "card card counting," which allows them to turn the edge in the game in the players direction. The card game has been around since the 1700s. References can be located in historical documents to a card game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which means 21 in French, and is deemed as the precursor to blackjack.

The game was initially not so popular in the united states. This caused the casinos attempting different features like providing a bonus in case of a ten to one payout, if the blackjack player had an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either the jack of clubs or spades. Once the game became popular, the reward pay out quickly disappeared from the game.

Any hand which achieves a total of 21 is considered a winner. The value can not be in excess of twenty one, in which case the hand is considered to be "bust." The target of any player is to defeat the house. If the blackjack player and the dealer both have the identical score, it’s referred to as a "push," with not either the player nor the croupier winning the hand.
