People often use 21 and Blackjack interchangeably. Modern variations of the games are the same. However, it was not always that way. Nevada legalized gambling in the 1930s. Casinos needed a way to lure customers away from pg slot their competitors. One of the most popular ways for bringing in new business was to offer special odds on card games. At the time, 21 was a very popular card game. Many casinos started offering special payouts is players were dealt a Blackjack and the Ace of Spades. In some casinos, this hand paid out as high as 10-1. These versions of 21 became the first Blackjack games. In early versions of Blackjack, the dealer was the only player allowed to double. Over time, that rule and others were changed to fit with Nevada’s gambling laws. Eventually, casinos stopped offering special odds based on the players’ hands. However, the name Blackjack stuck around.
