Blackjack

The blackjack made its appearance at the end of the xviiie century under the name of "21". This game is on the base inspired by two card games: the railroad and the farm francaise. It is in the period played in the Parisian casinos.

It is then introduced in the United States without much success. To try to attract the players, casinotiers invents bonuses. The players having an Ace of spades and a black Servant gain a bonus which offers then a payment of 10 against 1. The name of the game thus results of the " Servant Black " from this bonus or "Black jack" in English. We still call this game so even if the bonus does not exist any more.

How do I choose a machine?

  • Check the coin denominations shown on the screen (1F, 2F, 5F …)
  • Check how many lines the machine has (9, 20, 25, 50, 100 lines…)
  • Multiply these 2 figures and you'll get your average bet.
  • Then choose a machine that appeals to you (Egypt, Africa, Chevalerie...)

Tips:

  • Start small (average bet between 20F & 40F)
  • Always play the maximum number of lines to increase your chances of a winning combination
  • Use "Credits" or "Bet" buttons to maximise your payouts (the higher the bet, the higher the payout)
  • To get maximum enjoyment from playing, be sure to read and understand the machine's payout schedule
  • Please feel free to ask our orange-shirted customer assistants for further advice or information.
