People began to experience fate in gambling many centuries ago. And, it seems, they will never stop doing this. Let's see what types of entertainment have become the most popular all over the world.
Horse racing was first accepted in ancient Egypt. This is evidenced by archaeological excavations. Tote was also very popular in ancient Rome. Horse races were held there right in the amphitheaters.
Nevertheless, England is considered the birthplace of modern tote. It was in this country, at the beginning of the 17th century, that stables and hippodromes for racing horses began to be built. The well-known word "derby" is derived from the English Lord Derby.
Also known as lotto. Popular in Europe and America, especially among the elderly. The rules are very simple, you can play all day long, and in the company of your own kind. That is why it is considered a “game for seniors”.
It is believed that bingo first appeared in Italy in 1530. But the form of play known to us took shape only by 1880. During this time, she gained popularity in the United States. Mostly bingo was played at rural fairs.
In recent years, bingo turnover in the United States alone has been $ 10 billion per year. There are 50 thousand stationary bingo halls in the country. Note that the population is more loyal to bingo than to other types of gambling.
Pachinko (pachinko)
An analogue of a pinball, only instead of one ball, hundreds and thousands are charged into the machine at once. The winnings depend on which prize slot the ball gets into (and whether it gets). Pachinko is primarily a Japanese national entertainment.
Outside Japan, these machines are rare. In its homeland, pachinko is not only the object of universal insanity, but also 4% of the gross income to the national budget! However, experts note that recently the popularity of pachinko has begun to decline.
Black Jack. One of the most popular card games in the world. At the same time, he has the shortest history - he appeared about 300 years ago in France. From there, emigrants brought her to New Orleans. The real boom in blackjack began after the state of Nevada legalized gambling
The reason for the popularity of this card game what you can find out on is also because the player can control his chances of winning. By using a variety of strategies, you can maximize your chance of winning. It works on the internet as well.
The image of a roulette wheel, a spinning wheel and a ball bouncing on it, is strongly associated by many with chic casinos and success. Hollywood products contributed to the formation of this image.
The rules of the game are very simple, the winning depends only on luck and chance, and everything that happens is very spectacular. These factors contributed to the success of roulette.
For a long time, it was roulette that brought the main profit to the casino, but in the second half of the 20th century, slot machines came out on top in popularity.
Nevertheless, it is almost impossible to imagine a casino without roulette and these wheels with black and red sectors will remain a symbol of gambling for a long time to come.
The most popular card game in Asia. In local gambling houses, up to ⅔ of all areas are allocated for baccarat tables. Moreover, Europe is considered the homeland of this game.
Baccarat tables appeared in US casinos back in the 50s of the last century. At first, this card game was considered entertainment for the rich. But nowadays anyone can afford to play it. This is due to the fact that the size of the rates has decreased to a minimum.
