Chemin de Fer is one of the more favoured games played in casinos. Black jack is also known as 21 or "pontoon." The game is a mix of chance and ability coupled with choices. The game has changed over a set amount of time. Players have specialized in specific abilities like "card card counting," with which they shift the odds of the game in their direction. The game has been in existence since the 18th century. References can be found in historical scriptures to a card game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which means twenty one in French, and is considered the ancestor to blackjack.

The game was at first not very well-liked in the US. This led to the casinos attempting various things like offering a bonus like a 10-to-1 pay out, if the black jack player had an ace of spades and a black jack. The jack could be either clubs or spades. Once the game became well-liked, the reward pay out soon disappeared from the rules.

Any hand which reaches a sum of twenty-one is considered a winner. The total can not be in excess of twenty one, in which case the hand is said to be "bust." The target of any player is to best the house. If both the player and the house have the identical hand value, it is called "push" (a tie), with not either the black jack player or the dealer winning the hand.
