Single Deck BlackJack

Before Blackjack game actually becomes a big hit amongst online gamers, it was currently played in land casinos at many big venues in Las Vegas as well as around the world. It is a very fun game to play on but have you wondered about where it actually comes from; its origins? The exact origin of this game is currently unknown however many have retained the possibility that Blackjack is probably originated in French casinos around 1700, where it was called Vingt-et-Un, in French language, which meant twenty one. How did many come to believe that Blackjack was created in France? That’s because by the 1700s, Chemin de Fer and French Ferme were very much in vogue at that time and it is quite possible that Blackjack was derived from those games.  It could have also been derived from the Spanish game called ‘One and Thirty’ where the basic rule was to reach 31 with a minimum of three cards, quite similar right?
