Chemin de Fer also called twenty-one is one of the most favoured games competed in on betting house tables. The card game is played with 1, 2, 4, six, and 8 decks of cards. A croupier holds and deals the cards of the single and 2 deck games, more than two deck games are often dealt out of a tray like box, referred to as a "shoe."

The game is built on simple mathematical calculations. If the sum of the competitor’s cards is higher than the croupier’s cards without going over twenty-one the player is the winner. On the other hand if a player’s hand exceeds 21 that is called a "bust" and he automatically lose.

In one and two deck games games, the cards are left facing down. The competitors are able to hold the cards, whereas in the ’shoe games’, players are not allowed to touch the cards that are face up on the table.

Blackjack is a casino game based on interconnected outcomes, where bigger cards left in the deck give the advantage to the gamer and the lower values give the advantage to the croupier. The thrill of the casino game is in the changing of advantages between gamblers to dealers.

Since the gambler has the privilege to take action first, the player has the advantage to hold a hand that has the possibility of going over twenty-one. However if the gambler and the dealer both bust, the player still loses. Thus gamblers are encouraged to learn to play their hands correctly and guarantee the best outcome, which is based on the algorithmic tactic.

The card game of blackjack is extremely simple to understand and even includes the application of a basic strategy chart at the blackjack table for reference, and so with a bit of effort the competitors can take correct choices.
