Blackjack got its name in Las Vegas in the 1930s. Blackjack is the world’s most popular casino banking game. The aim is to reach 21 points – or to reach a score higher than the dealer’s without exceeding 21. There’s judgement involved.
After being dealt two cards, player have options to hit – take another card, split cards into two hands, double the stake but take only one card or stand (stay) with the cards dealt.
Roulette is a game of pure chance. There are no winning strategies. Players may bet on single numbers or a range of numbers, colours red or black, or whether the number is odd or even. I prefer to bet on red or black colours and even or odd on netbet.co.uk. Pockets are 1 to 36 with a green pocket numbered 0. In American roulette, there is second green pocket marked 00. Prevoious numbers have no bearing at all on likely future numbers. The total of all the roulette numbers is 666. Yorkshireman Joseph Jagger doubted the randomness of roulette wheels & in 1837 he hired people to secretly record the spins at a casino in Monte Carlo. He found that one wheel favoured certain numbers and won. Casino then moved the wheels around, but he quickly sussed this out and went on to win a fortune. He was immortalised in song as the “The Man Who Broke the Bank in Monte Carlo.” Never drink and gamble and never gamble more than you can comfortably afford to lose.
