As from the references to this game found in this book, it can be assumed that this game started from the 17th century in Castilia. Later this game also became popular in Spain and France. The game of Twenty-one was also introduced in the United States and initially to make the game popular among casino goers, several bonuses were offered. If a player had a Black Jack and an ace of spades in their hand then a special bonus was given. Henceforth the name blackjack remained though the bonus is no longer given out to players.
