How have casinos evolved over the years?
The gaming sector is one of the sectors that has undergone the most changes in recent years, and is also one of the sectors that has more followers day by day. The evolution of gaming rooms would be impossible to understand without considering the emergence of online gaming.
The first casino
The first casino in history, the Ridotto, opened in 1963 in the Italian city of Venice. This casino stood out mainly for two types of games, Basetta (Italian card game with a mechanics very similar to Blackjack) and Biribí (of French origin and considered the forerunner of bingo and lottery).
After the Ridotto, the city of Monaco was the first to build the first modern casino, which stood out for its slot machines and all kinds of board games. The Monte Carlo Casino, created by architect Charles Garnier, is today one of the most iconic and visited in the world.
Macao: One of the largest resorts in the world
The Chinese city of Macao is home to one of the largest resorts in the world, The Venetian Macao, which is also one of the 10 tallest buildings in the world. Opened in 2007, it has an area of 51,000 m2 dedicated to gambling, which houses more than 3,400 slot machines and 800 roulette, blackjack and poker tables. This resort, in addition to having luxurious suites and recreational spaces, hosts major music events and international artists such as The Black Eyed Peas, Josep Carreras and The Police.
The Venetian Macao is currently the second largest casino in the world, and contrary to popular belief, the podium is not led by any of Las Vegas, but by the WinStar World Casino and Resort, located in Oklahoma.
Las Vegas: the world capital of the casino
Las Vegas, the city that never sleeps. Las Vegas is the largest city in the state of Nevada and is one of the top tourist destinations in the United States.
With the legalization of gambling in 1931, the city of Las Vegas found a new direction and began to become world famous. Casino hotels began to be built, and after World War II, Las Vegas hotels and casinos adopted a luxurious aesthetic. Thus began the great entertainment of the city.
The evolution to iGaming
The evolution of the casino could certainly not be understood without the evolution of new technologies and the internet. The Internet has brought the gaming world closer to an audience that would surely never have stepped into a physical casino.
The new technology has made it possible for users to play from the comfort of their home, from any device with the ability to connect to the Internet and at any time of the day, so its popularity is increasing every day. These new pages know neither geographical barriers nor time zones, so it no longer matters where you are, wherever you are possible, and place all kinds of bets.
Another very important advantage of online betting pages over physics is that the catalog of games is much wider. Whatever the type of player, in a casino on the Internet you can always find a game according to the user’s preferences.
Online casinos are evolving day by day and along with Artificial Intelligence will further enhance the user experience on this type of website.
