The History of Casino Games Part 2

Posted on October 29, 2013

Casino games come from a long history of gambling methods. There must be something in human nature that craves the excitement of gambling. How else could we explain the fact that games of chance have been found in every culture, in every century, from Asia and the Middle East to the Roman Empire to the 21st-century online casino? The history of casinos and casino games is therefore a long and fascinating one. Here in part two of our retrospective of casino games, we take a look at the development of some of the great games that we have today.

Poker

Poker was named by the French and developed from the Persian game of "As Nas". Poker changed and spread across the continents through the years to become one of the most popular casino games today.

The Ancient World

There are many Chinese proverbs that incorporate hints of how to win at games of chance, although such games can be found dating back to the festivals of the Druids. The Chinese have always been known for their games of numbers and from them many modern games such as Keno have developed. Casino games were not just limited to the Chinese. There is one story of how a Roman nobleman insisted that the interior of his carriage be redesigned so that he could play dice games on his way to different meetings. It is also noted that there was a law passed by the Roman Empire decreeing that all sons learn how to gamble and throw dice in order that they could join in with their fathers as they came of age.

Roulette

If one looks at all of the modern casino games that there are today, one can see that they are based on ancient games from one culture or another. Roulette was derived from the famous mathematician Blaise Pascal, who came upon the roulette wheel by chance when he was experimenting with perpetual motion. From his invention of the roulette wheel, the popular game of roulette developed and became the flagship symbol for many casinos.

Online Casinos

The most recent and exciting development in the history of casino games is the online casino. People who used to have to wait in line to play their favorite slot machine games can now play online slots for real money whenever they want to at Win A Day Casino. Games that were previously thought of as too exclusive for most players became available to play on the Internet. With the development of the Internet and random number generators, online casino gaming really took off in the 1990's. Since the 1990's there has been a boom in real-money online casino gambling because of the easy accessibility and also the low betting minimums.

It is natural that people want to relax and enjoy themselves after a hard day's work. Casino games have always been thought of as a way of escaping the hustle and bustle of regular life and a way of enjoying oneself. When playing any of the many casino games, one must always remember the rich history of culture and society that lies behind casino games.
