Blackjack is the most widely played casino banking game in the world today but you might be surprised to find out that it dates back a few hundred years. That said, it’s pretty difficult to pin down the exact origins of blackjack. Some historians believe that the Romans should be credited with inventing the concept as it is close to a game they played using wooden blocks of different numerical values.
Most historians point to the game of twenty-one being mentioned in a book by the Spanish author of Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes as the first recorded reference to Blackjack. In the book, written in 1602, a couple of card cheats working in Seville play Veintiuna, Spanish for twenty-one. They state that the object of the game is to reach 21 points without going over and that the ace values 1 or 11.
The game of 21 continued to grow in popularity across Europe and was first exported to North America by the early the French settlers. In America blackjack featured a bonus payout if a player's hand contained the ace of spades and either the jack of clubs or the jack of spades, this hand was called a blackjack. The bonus has long since disappeared but the name stuck.
As the game continues to evolve in the 21st century, it’s found a whole new fanbase with the emergence of online casinos. Look no further than the wide variety of blackjack online versions you can enjoy at William Hill online casino today.
