The history of card games has always been blurred and ambiguous, because it does not represent a great value to scientists. Therefore, the origin of gambling examined, based on records of gambling bills. Researchers have only speculate about the origin of blackjack games, but most are inclined to believe that the game originated in France in the 17th century.

The name "Blackjack" is derived from the names of the cards that are of great importance in this game: ace of spades (black) and Jack (Jack). The original version of the game was a game of Blackjack «Vent et Un», which means "twenty-one". There were also other games with similar names and rules, so Vent et Un considered the original game, although it could in turn be derived from something else.

There are differences between the Blackjack and Vent et Un. The dealer has the opportunity to double your bet, and the player must bet after each round Vent et Un, which is unacceptable in the American version of Blackjack. Whatever option the game you choose, the goal remains the same: you must get 21 points to win.

In the 17th century in Italy was also popular similar game called "seven and a half." It played a face card, as well as the Group of Seven, Eight and a nine. The aim of the game is to collect the balance of seven and a half points, while 7,8 and 9 were estimated at 1 point, and curly - in half. Players who gained more than seven and a half points, losing the round.

After the events of the revolution Blackjack appeared in North America. While in France, there were few laws that restrict gambling game, but in the United States such laws did not exist. So lovers of gambling could meet and play anywhere. Players began to develop strategies that help increase the chance of winning. But in the 19th century in the United States changed all gambling, including blackjack, outlawed.
