Casino of the Month



Blackjack can be variously called the 21, Pontoon or Vingt-et-un. The origin of the game is still under debate because it is not yet known. First time the game was played in France in the 18th century.

When the game was brought to the US, it was not favoured by gamblers. Consequently, the casinos have to give incentive by giving bonus payout to gamblers so that they will play the game. But today, the whole thing has changed. Blackjack has become popular and it is most favoured online casino game without any house edge.


One of the reasons why blackjack is popular today across the globe is partly because mathematics can be applied in the game. The aim of the game is quite simple. The game is played by gamblers against the dealer. So, the target of each player is to get hand that is higher than that of the dealer but should not be more than 21.

Card Values

The counting of the cards is determined by the face value of the cards. For example, the card that has the numbers ranging from 2-9 retains their face value. Kings, jacks and queens are valued as 10 while aces are valued as 1 or 11 and this depends on your need. The best hand in the game is known as blackjack. A player will hit blackjack if has an ace and any of the cards with the face value of 10.

The game is won by a player with hand that total more than that of the dealer but the total should not be more than 21. Should the total be above 21, the player loses. If the dealer also has a hand that is above 21, then dealer loses.
