Blackjack is the most popular casino banking game in the world, combining players chances fo winning with skill and strategy. The game apparently was invented in Spain, where Cervantes gave the first written reference to blackjack's precursor in his story "Rinconete y Cortadillo." After "21" was brought to the US, casinos and gambling houses offered bonus payouts to entice players to their tables. It's from this that blackjack found its name: a 10-to-1 payout was given if the player's winning hand consisted of the Ace of Spades and a black Jack. This bonus is no longer part of the game that we playnow, but the name "blackjack" stuck.
