It was played in France in the year 1700 when King Louis IV was ruling. When it came to the USA it received a like warm reaction and many casinos changed the odds to lure more players to the game. The payout offered were 10:1 if the winning hands would contain either Jack of Clubs or Jack of Spades. This is how the game in USA came to be known as Blackjack. Once the game became popular the heavy payout was removed but the name stuck.
