If a blackjack always wins but is paid at even money the basic strategy player is at a loss of about 2.1%. If paid at 2 to 1 the player has an advantage of about +2.3%.  The origins of the game of blackjack are somewhat uncertain but it is known to have been played in this country early in the eighteenth century. It is also said to have been the favorite game of Napoleon. Only in relatively recent years has it been called blackjack.  See Rules of the Game. See 6:5.
