A short history of casino games

Tracing the origins of luck
As featured on Sloto Magazine

Like many traditions and practices that are old as humanity itself, the origins of games of chance lie hidden in the mist of prehistory. Anthropologists and historians believe that in one form or another gambling has existed for thousands of years. We must look at the records of the earliest civilizations to find clues for the origin of what is today a widespread, globalized form of entertainment.

“Head or tails” could be the simplest and earliest form of a chance game. The game could be played with an ordinary seashell tossed into the air. Records from the Roman Empire confirm this form of “coin flipping” prior to the actual use of a coin. When coins were common within the Empire, a coin toss became a popular way of settling disputes. It was called “navia aut caput” meaning “ship or head” as many coins had a ship on one side and the head of the emperor on the other.

In Ancient Greece the practice of gambling was embedded in their very mythology. It is said that Zeus, Poseidon and Hades divided the universe amongst themselves after a game of dice. Zeus won the Heavens, the sea went to Poseidon and Hades won control over the Underworld. In this context it is easy to understand why the ancient Greeks believed that the gods controlled the results of a game of dice. They used this game of chance to select rulers, look for omens and predict future events.

Did you know that according to ancient Greek mythology, Zeus and two others gods divided the universe amongst themselves after a game of dice?

One of the most elaborate games of chance in antiquity is Keno, originating as early as 2500 years ago in China. It is the earliest form of lottery, where participants select a few numbers from a set of 80 and wait for the outcome of a random selection of numbers. Legend has it that the Great Wall of China was partially financed by the selling of Keno tickets!

As we move closer to our times, more and more games of chance started to appear. Many of the prototypical casino games such as Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Baccarat have their origin during or after the European Middle Ages. The game of Craps is believed to be of English origin, developed by knights in the 12th century to pass time. An early version of Blackjack is mentioned in Cervantes’ famous novel Don Quixote. Playing cards were at first hand painted but later, with the invention of printing, they were manufactured in printing houses. The philosopher and scientist Blaise Pascal introduced a primitive form of Roulette in the 17th century. Later in the 18th century both Roulette and Baccarat began to take their modern form.

The casino as an establishment for gambling purposes has an obscure origin. Gambling has always been an extremely popular form of entertainment but rulers and governments in the past, like now, have attempted to suppress it. In 1190, during the Third Crusade, King Richard of England and Philip II of France issued edicts that forbade gambling for money for those below the rank of a knight. It is only in 1638 that we see the first legal casino appear in Europe. Known as “Il Ridotto” or “the private room” in Italian, this was a government-owned gambling house in Venice. It only offered two types of games: Biribi and Basetta. The first was a kind of lottery game, while the latter was a mix between poker, gin rummy and blackjack.

In the US gambling saloons were widespread in the 19th century but it was only in 1931, when Nevada became the first state to legalize gambling, that real casinos made their appearance in Las Vegas. The second major gambling hub became Atlantic City after New Jersey legalized gambling in 1977. Today there are 21 states that allow commercial gambling establishments in the US.

The last phase in this short overview of casino games has been the introduction of gambling into the online world. The very first online casino was launched in August 1995, offering only 18 games of very poor quality compared to today’s online games. Fast forward only 20 years and the internet now harbors over 1,500 gambling sites according to a recent Economist.com article.

What could be the future of games of chance? As we have seen in this Summer Edition, the arrival of 3D slot games sets a new standard of quality and entertainment. We can look forward to plenty of new releases of 3D and mobile games in the near future as we begin to shape the next phase of the age-old gambling tradition.

Tips for casino lovers

As featured on Sloto Magazine
By Robert Sanders 

I have been visiting casinos and playing at online casino for over two decades. I have come in contact with all types of gamblers. I’ve had amusing conversions with penny slots aficionados and shared adrenaline-pumping moments with high stakes gamblers. Some do it just for passing time, others for the thrill and there are others that try to make a living from it. I have distilled from all these different people several lessons that allow you to enjoy gambling in a responsible and effective way.

I personally choose to gamble for the entertainment value and constantly keep present in my mind not to go overboard by over betting in heat of the moment. We will look at 7 habits that are shared by effective players around the world. Practicing these habits does not guarantee unprecedented success at a casino, but will reduce the risk of the detrimental aspects of gambling.

1) Set a budget

It does not matter if you are a high-roller playing nightly for enormous profits or a Sunday gambler placing a few penny wager for a modest jackpot. What matters is to start the playing session with a set budget. This is not a hard habit to set in place. First you must look at your income and calculate all necessary expenses (rent, mortgage, utility bills, groceries, and so on) and set aside the rest for what can be called leisure activities (movies, gaming, eating out or hobbies). I recommend not spending more than 75% of your leisure activities budget on gaming. Then decide if you want to use this money in a single playing session or over several days or weeks. This habit will allow you to fully enjoy every minute of your Sloto’Cash experience with peace of mind.

2) Get informed

You do not have to be a rocket-scientist to figure out how to play at an online casino. But you can still gather vital information about the casino, its games and promotions that will help you perform better. Experience in online gaming will pay off in the long run. Learn about what a game’s RTP (return to player) is, what low and high-variance games are, and the different terms of a promotion (maximum cash out, sticky/non-withdrawable bonus, max bet limit, restricted games and so on) plus the terms of the casino (weekly withdrawal limits, security documents procedures). When you are fully informed about every aspect of your gaming experience, then you won’t get big unpleasant surprises such as finding out that your winnings have been voided because you played a table game with a slots-only bonus.

3) Play it slow

The casino experience is not only about making a quick buck but also about enjoying the rollercoaster ride of ups and down in luck. What often happens, however, is that we are so engrossed in the thrill of the game that we momentarily forget that we are actually playing with our hard-earned cash. Thus, a lot of experienced players have learnt to play slower so they can have time to meditate on their next move. It doesn’t matter if you play skill-based games such as Blackjack and Video Poker, or only games of pure chance such as Scratch Cards or Slots. Make sure you have enough ‘thinking gaps’ in your play session to consider moving to another game or as we will see in the next section, calling it quits.

4) Know when to call it quits

This habit takes time to develop in the individual and it is important to learn to end a session both when you are winning and when you are losing. Pay attention to patterns in the games so you can learn when it is realistic that the games won’t pay more. This is essential when you have achieved a decent win. Continuing playing after a certain point likely entails that you will put the money back in the casino’s coffers. Likewise, if you have lost your set budget, take a deep breath to cool down and consider ending the session and playing again another day when your luck could change. If you reduce the risk of further losses and maximize your winnings, then you have more opportunities to play in the future.

5) Get full value

Playing at Sloto’Cash casino has a lot of perks and you should try to take advantage of every single one of them. Join the loyalty club to receive extra rewards and cashback bonuses. Learn which games grant the highest rate of comp points and redeem them often. Make sure you check our daily bonus chart, read the weekly newsletters and message center in the lobby that often have free spins and other rewards for customers.

6) Learn the basic strategies

Not all games have effective strategies but there are some that require a bit of skill and tactics to ensure you reduce the house edge to a minimum. I’ve heard about many slot machine strategies but generally they are nothing more than wishful thinking. However, games likes Video Poker and Blackjack have certain sets of rules you can follow that will mathematically increase your chances of success. Knowing what cards to hold in Video Poker and when to ‘double’ in Blackjack can be efficient ways for you to increase your rate of winning!

7) Don’t drink and play  

We all love to get spoiled by casino waiters as they keep our glasses full of beer and cocktails. But it carries a risk of ruining your success at a casino table or game. There is no secret that a tipsy mind can make wrong decisions, and worse of all, you are likely to forget all the previously mentioned tips and habits we’ve mentioned in this article! So avoid drinking while you play. If you cannot resist the combination of casino excitement coupled with a relaxing drink, then limit the intake to one beer or glass of wine per every 1.5 hours and make sure you’ve had a hearty meal before your first drink.
