  Blackjack History Is Linked With Casinos



Even though the exact origins of blackjack are unknown, there is a lot that can be said about the history of the game and how it has progressed and developed over the years. In all likelihood, blackjack will be one of the oldest games known to people because there is nothing difficult or confusing about the game.

The earliest written reference to a game of this nature is of the game called Twenty One, which was written about in a book by Miguel De Cervantes, a Spanish author. The story of Rinconete y Cortadilo was taken from the book NovelasEjemplares but the most successful work of Miguel De Cerventes was Don Quixote. It is known that Cervantes was quite a gambler in real life and this story focused on the lives of two cheats who were operating in the Seville area of Spain.

The two characters develop their skills in the Spanish game of Ventiuna (which unsurprisingly stands for 21) and the story outlines the rules of the game, stating that the objective is to reach 21 points without going over 21 points. The story also outlines the fact that an ace card can hold the value of 1 or 11.

The game is not exactly the same as the modern day blackjack because the game was played using the Spanish baraja deck, which was a deck of cards which didnít contain any cards of the 8, 9 or 10 values. It is believed that the story came to life in 1601 or 1602, which means that the game would have been played in Spain at the end of the 1500s, start of the 1600s. It is therefore reasonable to trace the history of blackjack back to at least this time.

By the time blackjack arrived in the United States, there were a number of bonus pay-outs paid to players in order to spike interest. Online casinos may provide promotions and bonuses to players in the modern era but it is easy to see that this is not a new phenomenon. One of the bonuses that was paid out was a 10:1 pay-out if a player held a hand consisting of the ace of spades with one of the black jack club cards, i.e. the jack of spades or clubs). This hand was called blackjack and eventually this was what the game was referred to. Over time, these special bonuses were phased out but the name remains and the term blackjack is used to describe a hand that holds an ace and a card that has the value of 10.
