    - Blackjack's precursor was vingt-et-un ("twenty-one"), which originated in French casinos around 1700.

    The six-sided dice have a fascinating history. Traditionally carved from animal bones, they have been used by man as a means of predicting the future as well as the outcome of games of chance. These lucky cubes have been fashioned from all kinds of materials ranging from fruit pits, ivory, jewels, and even human teeth. The oldest known dice were uncovered by archaeologists in Iraq where they were possibly used with a game similar to the modern game of backgammon. These dice were made from baked clay and are approximately 5,000 years old.
