Blackjack game

Since the invention of the original social card game from the French, called: ˝Vingt-et-un˝ or (21) which was later named by Americans as ˝Blackjack˝ the game has never lost its appeal. Many variations have sprung up since then offering different rules for each type of blackjack game there is. 

Though it can be a game of chance for some, those who were clever would (count cards) and have an advantage to win the game by knowing the probable cards held in order to have an upper hand. In recent decades since companies like Microgaming and Playtech have reinvented the classic game in electronically form, the game has taken a whole new twist. A player who could count cards in the traditional method found that it was literally impossible to make the same happen with online blackjack. 

The method was simple since the random generation of the game software could allow any combination to occur, making the so-called (card counters) stick to the actual card game. But for those who like blackjack in general, the intention of social gaming became big business for online casinos offering big winning pots.

International blackjack tournaments helped make the game more social and less of a simulation. Featuring live chat and in some cases live video feeds give this game more of a personal feel along with the thrill of the game itself. Much of the original history of the game involved a group who could interact with each other. 

By itself, the game is entertaining enough but within a group it can build into the social structure of what card games are all about, the true thrill of the win and the agony of defeat. Blackjack is one of the few games that never loses appeal, with the new online forms of the game it continues to capture the spotlight every time.
