Blackjack, also known as twentyone or Pontoon, is one of the most popular casino card games in the world. Much of blackjack's popularity is due to the mix of chance with elements of skill, and the publicity that surrounds card counting keeping track of which cards have been played since the last shuffle. Blackjack's precursor was vingtetun "twentyone", which originated in French casinos around 1700, and did not offer the 32 bonus for a twocard 21. When blackjack was first introduced in the United States it was not very popular, so gambling houses tried offering various bonus payouts to get the players to the tables. One such bonus was a 10to1 payout if the player's hand consisted of the ace of spades and a black Jack either the Jack of clubs or the Jack of spades. This hand was called a "blackjack" and the name stuck to the game even though the bonus payout was soon abolished. As the game is currently played, a "blackjack" may not necessarily contain a jack at all.
