Fun Facts about Live Casino History

  • Baccarat was invented in the early 1400’s somewhere in the vicinity of France or Italy (historians are not completely sure which country the game originated in and which one just adopted the fun pastime soon after). Despite the exciting outcomes of the game, Baccarat took over five centuries to really become a commonplace gambling sport. Though there are no concrete ways to prove it, some people theorize that the intricate rules and strategies involved in Baccarat are what hampered its growth from the offset! Guess people got more patient or were just itching for a new variety to take a stab at!
  • Roulette is called this because of its own derivations. Coming from France, the game’s name actually means miniature wheel in French. So the tag is pretty fitting. Funnily enough, roulette was found out by mistake when a mathematician was trying to patent a perpetual motion machine instead. Think Dr. Pascal was disappointed? Well billions of gamblers later certainly aren’t!
  • Blackjack history may come from any number of countries, sources are divided. In England, there was a version called Twenty-one, with all the familiar rules of play. Spain also had a shot at the title, and a little known story of gambling friends corroborates the Spanish claim as rightful originators of the game.
