Land based Casinos

When we think of land based casinos, we start to think of Las Vegas, the party, the crowd and everything around it. However it haven’t always been looking like that. Especially since casinos started for more then 1000 years ago, exactly when the first casino opened  is pretty hard to tell because this is something that allot of people are arguing about. One reason for this is that people have a hard time to define what is exactly a casino, if we should count in all the forms of places where people have been meeting and gambled for real money we will have to go back all the way back to the old Greeks that played craps, as well in China there has been evidence of gambling between all different kind of people. 

 

The worlds first modern Casino.

If we instead start to focus on the modern casino, as we fantasies it to be today, then we actually have a date of the first real casino, it started 1638, this casino was started in the town Venedig in Italy, they had gambling as its only income, and due to that we can say that this is the first real land based casino, this was a legal place where players was offered to gamble with money on a few craps games. The casino was named Ridotto. 

Casino Ridotto

Old but popular games. 

 

Today when we think of a casino we think of games such as Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker, but back in the days these games was not invented yet, instead you could play a game called BiriBI this game was similar to a lottery game and a card game by the name of Basetta. The game Basetta was a high stakes game where the pay outs was huge and the losses big. That´s why this game became the best one for wealthy people. Biribi on the other hand was a game with less chances of winning but bigger payouts if you could hit the right number. 

 

Casinos way into Sweden. 

Even in Sweden gambling became popular way back and the first Casino was open already in 1700. But already in the 1800 gambling became illegal in Sweden, exactly the same thing happen in Usa at that time, however the Swedes that still wanted to play had to go to less exclusive casinos and Neighborhoods to place bets illegally. Today you can visit land based casinos in Sweden in Malmö, Stockholm, Göteborg and Sundsvall. In these locations the does the company “Svensks Spel” that is owned by the government operate 4 land based casinos. The first one opened up in 19 99. 

“Interesting for Nerds”

 

1995 became a milestone in the history of Online Gambling. This year the first online casino was launched and it started out very good for the casino even when the internet was relative new at this time. There was a small amount of games that was available but still this was a huge step forward. The public was amazed of this but they also had there concerns. It took some years before online gambling because a more regular thing to do. 

 

The first online casinos had allot of bugs, terrible designs and ugly websites out there and the biggest issue was the payment solutions. Gambling online quickly became know for un-secure transactions and security failure.
