The most enjoyable way to gamble

The most enjoyable way to gamble

Gambling, in its many forms, has a very long history. In fact it may well go back as far as 2,300 BC in China where tiles have been found that were probably used in a rudimentary game of chance. 

Many centuries later the Romans were one of the first civilisations to develop dice as a method of gaming although this was very much frowned upon by the authorities who would fine any players caught competing for money four times the stakes they were playing for. It’s believed that this was the reason why betting chips were invented - so if players were caught they could claim that the game was for enjoyment only and they were simply playing for the counters.

The first casinos

It was in the 17th century that European casinos started to appear in Italy and France and these were brought to America by settlers from the late 18th century onwards. But it wasn’t until the early 20th century that the global mecca for gamblers, Las Vegas, first sprung up out of the Nevada desert.

The city’s heyday, certainly in terms of notoriety, was in the 1950s and 60s when the Rat Pack encapsulated the glamour and sophistication of Vegas, but from the 1990s onwards it has been under threat from a phenomenon that was very quick to spring up – online casinos.

Whether you’re a craps player or a slots fan it’s easy to see why these proved to be such a winner from the start. For example, instead of having to go to all of the trouble of dressing smartly and heading for a bricks and mortar casino it was suddenly possible to play from the comfort of your own home, whenever you wanted to play.

Going mobile

The emergence of mobile technology such as tablets and smartphones increased the level of freedom even more so now all you need is a device and an internet connection and you’re ready to go. The fact that more people now go online through mobile devices than on PCs shows just how popular it is.

Online operators have also broadened the number of games they offer. Planet 7 Casino offer a range of slots that provide an exciting experience, arguably more-so than one that could be found in a land-based casino. The play’s the same, the betting’s the same and, most importantly, the winning can be the same too.

What one doesn’t experience, however, is the excitement of the casino surroundings or the opportunity to throw the dice oneself. For many this is one of the most appealing aspects of land-based casinos as it really does feel like your destiny is in your own hands. However, this is a sacrifice that more and more gamblers seem to be willing to make in order to enjoy the convenience of playing their favourite game online.

Looking to the future

With the rapid emergence of virtual reality as a technology this might not even be an issue for very long as online casinos are actively involved in developing fully immersive games which will transport players into realistic casino environment.


When they do then the online and actual experience really will have very little difference between them – and for many this day simply can’t come soon enough.
