Big money, fun- just a click away

A little bit about gambling

It is tough to pin-point when casinos originated. However, the Chinese recorded the first account of gambling in 2300 B.C. From Mythology to world history, gambling has been recorded in almost every society. Be it Rome, Greece, France or England- countries across the globe have been witnessing the game of chance for a very long time. The French are credited with inventing playing cards in 1387. In the year 1440, Johann Gutenberg of Germany printed the first full deck of cards.

Several present-day gambling games have been derived from previous ones. In the sixteenth century, the French working class became adept at the Egyptian game of roulette. Napoleon liked the card game vingt-et-un-which has come to be known as blackjack or twenty-one. The popular dice-throwing game of craps is attributed to the English who developed a diversion called hazard. Poker games are believed to have been originated from a combination of several ancient influences including Persian, Italian, and English games of chance.

Origin of offline casinos

The first European colonists brought with them an affinity for games of chance. Cockfighting, horse racing and county-sponsored lotteries led to an interest of people towards betting. Lotteries witnessed an immense popularity and generated enough money to fuel many civic projects.

As the betting fever swept the United States, gambling houses and halls soon became commonplace. Believe it or not, even George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were known for printing and selling playing cards. Near the start of the American Revolution, almost every house boasted of at least one deck of playing cards.

The modern-day casinos slowly evolved from gambling houses and today witness a transaction of millions of dollars every day. States like Las Vegas have become synonymous with casinos.
