    Chemin de Fer is possibly one of the more popular games gambled on in betting houses. Black jack is also referred to as 21 or "pontoon." The game is a mix of chance and skills combined with decision-making. The game has adapted over a period of time. Players have specialized in certain abilities like "card card counting," which allows them to turn the odds of the game in their favor. The game has been around since the 1700s. References can be located in historical scriptures to a card game known as "vingt-et-un," which means 21 in French, and is thought of as the precursor to blackjack.

    The card game was initially not so well-liked in the u.s.. This caused the gambling houses attempting different features like offering a bonus in case of a 10-to-1 pay out, if the black jack player was dealt a "black" jack and an ace of spades. The jack could be either clubs or spades. Once the game became well-known, the bonus payout before long disappeared from the game.

    Any hand which achieves a sum of 21 is considered a winner. The value can not exceed 21, in which case the hand is considered to be "bust." The aim of each player is to best the house. If the black jack player and the croupier both have an identical score, it’s called "push," with neither the player nor the dealer coming away with a win on the hand.
