William Hill Sign Up ButtonBlackjack is a card game that has comparison for its basis – the player competes against the dealer by comparing hands and aiming to earn more points, while not exceeding the 21 mark (commonly referred to as “busting” or “going bust”). Initially, both contenders are dealt two cards, after which either one has the option to “stand” or “hit” – the former means renouncing to draw any additional cards and locking in the sum of the current ones (done in order to avoid busting), while the latter implies drawing one more card at a time so as to improve the final score. There are more options based on the specific variation of the game; particular requirements are present within some, too.

The modern game of blackjack evolved from an old (the first surviving written evidence is found in a short story by Miguel de Cervantes dating back to 1601) game of unknown origin called twenty-one. Blackjack’s name was coined as the game was introduced in the United States: venues would often offer bonuses meant to stimulate their clients, one of them offered a ten to one payout if the gamer’s cards were the ace of spades and a black jack (that of spades or that of clubs). Such a hand was referred to as “blackjack” and even though the bonus attached to it was soon after withdrawn, the name stuck to the game as a whole.
