Black Jack also called twenty one is possibly the most liked games gambled on on casino tables. The game uses 1, 2, four, six, and 8 decks of cards. A croupier holds and deals out the cards in single and double deck games, more than two deck games are generally dealt out of a box like device, referred to as a "shoe."

The casino game is built on simple mathematical calculations. If the value of the competitor’s cards is greater than the croupier’s cards while not going over twenty-one the competitor is the winner. But at the same time if a player’s hand exceeds 21 that is called a "bust" and they automatically lose.

In hand-held games, the cards are kept facing down. The players are able to touch the cards, whereas in the ’shoe games’, players are not permitted to hold the cards that are faced up to him.

Twenty-one is a casino game based on dependent actions, wherein larger cards remaining in the deck give the advantage to the player and the lower denominations favor the croupier. The excitement of the game is in the shifting of advantages back and forth from gamblers to dealers.

Since the gambler has the advantage to take action first, he has the advantage to hold a hand that has the possibility of going over 21. However if the player and the croupier both bust, the gambler still loses. As a consequence bettors are advised to understand how to play their cards properly and ensure the best outcome, which is based on the algorithmic strategy.

The casino game of blackjack is very simple to learn and even includes the use of a basic strategy table at the table for reference, and so with a bit of effort the players can take proper decisions.
