With origins lost in time, more likely the roots of the game can be found in Europe, where in Miguel Cervantes’ book “Don Quixote” written around 1602, we can read about “ventiuna”- 21 in Spanish.
Initially a board game, it was modified and adapted for gambling by the gaming houses and due to popularity it has its place in any major Casino in the world. Here, in the gaming world lays the origin of the game’s name. Once the game made its way across the ocean, the American gaming houses offered bonus payouts to stimulate players’ interest. One of those was paid to a player receiving an Ace of spades and a Jack of spades or clubs; this hand was called a “Black Jack” and the name stuck to the game.
Today, worldwide we can find many versions of the game, with differences varying from the players’ options during the game to the type of wagers accepted by the casino. Royal Casino Bucharest invites you to challenge your luck playing the most popular version of BlackJack in an elegant ambiance and among friendly and professional staff.
