03Blackjack

The origins of Blackjack, one of the most popular card games on Earth, are unknown. What is more, there is no mention of who invented it. Some sources claim that Blackjack has French roots, which may be confirmed by the fact that the expression Vingt-et-un, the French for «21», was used in the game. A game of the same name was wildly popular in France in the 17th century. Aristocrats and commoners alike enjoyed playing it.

In the 19th century, the popular Vingt-et-un game was exported to the United States, where it gained immense and universal popularity. It was in the United States that the game received one of its current names, «21». So, where did the name Blackjack come from? The answer is very simple. The name came from the highest hand, a Peak Ace and a Jack. Today, this card game is extremely popular throughout the world.

04Baccarat

Baccarat is one of the most popular games in the world and has been around for centuries. The history of its origins is unclear. Some claim that the game originated in Italy, and that its name derives from the word «baccarat», which means «zero» in Italian; note that the value of 10 and face cards is zero. Others claim the game originated in France, in the city of Baccarat, which is famous for its crystal. In the Middle Ages, Tarot cards were used to play Baccarat. In the 15th century, it was the main entertainment of the French nobility. Baccarat, along with a host of other card games, appeared in Russia during the time of Peter I. It has always been a game of aristocrats, and enjoyed great popularity at the courts of Catherine II and Nicholas I. Baccarat remains a VIP game in casinos around the world today.
