Also known as 21, blackjack is one of the most popular games in both land-based and online casinos. Though playing it requires a bit of strategy, blackjack rules are pretty simple and straightforward. This makes it easy for beginners to learn.
Since online casinos were launched in the 90s, blackjack has been a phenomenally successful game for most fans. In fact, the game quickly became the most popular game around the world and in 2008, more than $21 billion were bet in online casinos.
Although the games of the 1990s didn't look as good as what casinos have today, many players still engaged in the games. The games quickly gained in popularity, especially due to the many perks that it was bringing to gamblers. For starters, players could not engage in play from the comfort of their homes, while others loved trying out the games for free.
