How old were you when you first learned to play blackjack?

I was around 10 when my dad taught me the rules. I got to play it in a real casino setting for the first time at a local Indian casino shortly after I turned 21.

I was 17 when I first played blackjack but it was at home with my family. I was 21 when I went to the casino and played for the first time. I enjoy it but I don’t enjoy it as much as I use to.

I think I was in college. I really don’t remember exactly. I know I never played it as a kid at home or anything. I’m pretty sure one of my dorm-mates taught me one night when we were partying a little too hard. LOL But at least we weren’t using real money.

I was probably about 10 when I first learned how to play. My grandpa was a card fanatic and he taught me. That’s why I’m teaching my kids young. lol They’ll be experts by the time they’re actually old enough to use their knowledge in a casino.

The first time I ever played was with my grandpa and I was 13. He taught me everything I know about the game and I thank him for that. This will always be a game that I lean towards thanks to him.

I was seven and I don’t think I was really ever taught by rules, but rather we just played it a lot as a pair, my mother and I. It would just be a fun thing, just something to do on a rainy afternoon or a way to pass the time, instead of me being told I was playing any particular game.

I got started a little late and didn’t play my first blackjack game until I was 24. I won a couple hands and decided to walk away. I enjoyed my experience.

I wasn’t so early either, I didn’t really start playing until I was in high school. I was in an all night sponsored sports event and we played between our turns on the courts.

I think I started playing with money in College but casual games began at the age of 12-13.

I was around 12 when I first started learning how to play. Granted it wasn’t for money, but it was still fun.

The year was 1988 -

I was born in 1948 -

So that would put the answer at ” 40 ” -

Took a course from a fellow named ” Doug Grant ” -

Actually the course was entitled ” The Doug Grant Gaming College ” -

Only 1 course - no electives - Black Jack -

Inside and out , upside down and vice versa -

Professionialism at its best !

Doug was world-wide known - much to his chagrin -

Could not get a game anywhere in the world -

His reputation preceded him and his face was plastered on more casino walls than the ” 10 Most Wanted ” are posted in Post Offices throughout the USA -

Doug’s attitude was ” If I can’t play BlackJack - I will teach the world how to play winning Black Jack ” -

And that he did -

And did with a venegence -

And a winning formula -

Trust me - there is no one that can come close to ” Doug Grant ” !
