Casino games at live casinos
The Internet was first considered a fad but has survived and radically changed our everyday world. Casino gambling has also undergone a change thanks to all the fantastic options now available through the Internet. One example is that we can now enjoy casino games wherever and whenever we want without having to waste time and money travelling to a “brick and mortar” casino.
Man has enjoyed betting and gambling since time immemorial. Precisely when money was included is not known but there are theories that it started in China around 2300 BC. Whether this is true or not is impossible to determine.
What we do know, on the other hand, is that as early as the 17th century, the gambling house “Ridotto” was built in Venice, Italy. The purpose was to bring all gamblers together under one roof. You could say that the Ridotto was a predecessor to today’s casinos and perhaps the reason they are called “casinos”. “Casa” is an Italian word meaning little home.
The first true casio
The first true casinos appeared in North America in the 1930s when gambling with money was legalised. Today, Las Vegas is considered the world’s foremost gambling mecca and gamblers from near and far head there to gamble and enjoy the warm climate and atmosphere.
Many Swedes dream of going to Las Vegas to gamble but it is both tedious and expensive. And although there are land-based casinos in Sweden, they are still far away for most people. The Internet, however, has removed that barrier. Now there are all kinds of opportunities to enjoy casino games online and even bask in an international offering of games.
