A Brief Look at the Gambling Industry

Online Gambling SoftwareA Brief Look at the Gambling Industry

Gambling has been known in almost every society throughout history and there are many accounts of games of chance being played as entertainment. Casinos themselves date back as far as the 1600’s but the first official account of gambling, or games of chance, is given by Chinese records in 2300 BC. Little has changed over history when it comes to members of the public looking for entertainment, so gambling has persisted as a means of meeting people, having fun and winning money.

Things have changed a lot since the days when you had to visit a bingo hall, casino or go to the races to place a bet. Nowadays you can just switch on your computer and start gambling without needing to leave the comfort of your own home.

The gambling industry today is an entertainment industry, attracting huge investment in development of faster software, improved graphics and applications that allow you to gamble using your mobile phone, and the UK is right at the forefront of this development as the gambling industry is thriving.

Great Britain has a long history with gambling, since the days of the Anglo-Saxons gambling has always been a part of English history and many games appear to have originated in England. For example, craps, the most popular of the casino games, was invented by knights in the 11th Century and modern baccarat appears to have been developed in England.
