The first online casinos were created in the mid-’90s. Quickly after that rose the star of their best asset – the online blackjack. It quickly became the most popular and preferable casino game and its fans are constantly growing every year.
Blackjack was probably created at the beginning of the 17th Century or even earlier, similar to roulette. There is no accurate evidence about it or in which country it was created. Most sources, however, are pointing Spain and France. Originally the game was called Twenty-One because of the main objective – to reach 21 points. Later after it was popularized in the United States, the name was changed.
Blackjack is a social game as players are not directly playing against each other but the house. The rules are simple but still, there are many ways the game can change. This fact further excites gamblers and it is not surprising why it has expanded in popularity once it went online.
With the creation of the Internet, the casino industry entered our homes. If you have a computer or mobile device and a stable connection, you do not have to travel to a brick-and-mortar casino. You can save some money and time and invest those in playing online blackjack. Moreover, you will avoid the crowds, can prepare yourself with a decent strategy and can try a few free demo versions before starting the real money play. But what are the additional benefits?
In a few words you get all of this:
Blackjack allows more experienced players to guess what the dealer’s hand is and respectively to increase or decrease the risk. Usually, they do that by counting cards or taking a note from the behavior of the croupier – its facial expression, the tone of its voice or body movement. In online blackjack, a computer shuffles the cards after each round and you can’t count on reading its facial expressions.
All major gambling websites offer live versions of most online casino games including blackjack. Some of the above disadvantages could be removed if you choose to play with a real professional dealer. Also, your experience will become more genuine and you can feel like you are in a real land-based casino with all the pros and nothing from the cons.
Online blackjack is the same game like the classic described in the book of Miguel de Cervantes – Don Quixote. It is just the modern representation of the most popular casino game ever. Hundreds of different amazing features and creative solutions were added in the last couple of decades to make it even more attractive for its fans.
