5 Blackjack Facts -

Blackjack is a widely played game in casinos around the globe that is also known as twenty-one. This simple game takes place between the player and the dealer and the objective is to beat the dealer. There are three ways to do so – by getting 21 points on the first 2 cards without a dealer blackjack, reach a hand higher than the dealer without going over 21 or by letting the dealer draw further cards until their hand exceeds 21.

The Hall of Fame

Blackjack has its own Hall of Fame at the Barona Casino in California. This spot highlights its popularity by honouring blackjack experts, authors and professional players who have made significant contributions to the game. It was in 2002 that the very first nominations for membership were announced. The first group comprised of 21 nominees, all of which established themselves as blackjack experts. It was the public who voted on the first group via the Internet so as to trigger interest in the Blackjack Hall of Fame and it worked pretty well.

The French Philosophy

Blackjack originated in French casinos around the 1700s, where it was called “vingt-et-un” (twenty-and - one). It is believed that the game was enjoyed by a host of notable French historic figures such as Emperor Napoleon. Blackjack had a modest beginning and now it can be found in approximately 140 countries around the globe.

The types of Hands

There are the Best of Hands and the Worst of Hands in a Blackjack game. The best hand is of course 21 and a hand of 20 following closely behind. The third best hand on Blackjack is 11 because of the frequency of tens in Blackjack games. On the other hand, 16 is considered as the worst hand. This is when you fall into the dilemma of whether to Hit or Stand! The average dealer hand is somewhat better than 18.

House Rules make all the difference

Apparently changes in unimportant rules can radically modify your winning odds at the blackjack tables. The proof is the important growth in house edge provided when casinos allow dealers to hit on soft 17s. If you want to be a regular winner, be meticulous when looking for a table with rules that gives you the top chances of beating the dealer.

The Strength of Five

No single card is more important than the fives when it comes to your winning probabilities. Taking out the five cards from the deck enhances a player’s likelihoods of winning by 0.64%. This is actually the highest swing of any card.

 Blackjack offers the perfect equilibrium of an easy-to-grasp notion and a difficult-to-master strategy that appeals to players of all skill levels. You will find this very feeling on the different Blackjack games at Spin and Win Casino.
