||One of the most popular table games, blackjack is like no other casino game. It is the only game in which you can achieve a true statistical long-term advantage over the house. Originated from France, today's blackjack has many variations which makes it even more interesting due to the additional fun and excitement. Unlike other table games, this card game is very easy to learn. Its goal and rules are simple and clear: in order to win a hand you must have a hand value greater than that of the dealer without exceeding twenty-one. There is no need for you to hide your hand from the other players or from the dealer because all players gamble against the dealer and he can't take decisions on his own due to the casino very strict policy (dealers must take a card until his/hers hand value is at least 17). Although blackjack can be learned very quickly, it still remains a difficult game to master. This game of skill requires different strategies for different situations. In order to play it correctly you must take in consideration at least the number of card decks used and the particular rules of each casino. This is the only way to gain an advantage over the house. It is this slight advantage that makes blackjack one of the few bitable game in the long run.
