History of Gaming and Casinos

Have you ever wondered where gambling and casinos originated from? Perhaps you’re thinking about the Neolithic man, in his rocky mountain abode with friends, each making bets for an extra dried fish on who can run the fastest. Gambling does indeed date way back. In fact, it’s hard to say when the very first bet was made.

The earliest evidence dates back to a dice game from around 2300 B.C. in China. It’s thought these dice were used in various games including one which decided territory. By 100 A.D. King Olaf of Norway and King Olaf of Sweden used dice to resolve a minor argument over the opinion of who was more suited to own and rule the District of Hising. The Swedish king won.

Throughout the middle ages, European bourgeoisie, Royals and the most elite were playing roulette. In villages, gambling games were noisy and considered a big event. They took place at taverns and community gatherings.
