Let’s find out together the 5 interesting facts about the casinos world!
N. 1 – CASINO HAS ITALIAN ORIGINS
In 1744 the word “casino” was born for the fist time in Italy, it exactly means “small house.” Although we are unable to give exact origins of gambling (we talked about it, here), the first gambling house is supposed to be “Ridotto” in Venice, it opened in 1638, therefore even before the spread of the word casino! Fun facts: in this Venetian gambling house, players could only “bet high stakes” and the dress code required were masks and tricorn hats.
N. 2 – HOW MUCH IS THE HIGHEST PAYOUT AT SLOT MACHINES?
The temptation to play slot machines is strong for everyone, even for those who do not have the passion for gambling. That must have been so for the winner who saw (almost) 40 MILLION DOLLARS come jingling out. A young American boy, after he only played $100, won the greatest prize in the world ever at the slots machines.
N. 3 – BLACKJACK IS THE LESS CONVENIENT TABLE (FOR THE CASINO)
Every table must have a gain for the casino but not all gaming tables are equal! Some games are more lucrative for casinos, for example, just slot machines have almost 70% profit margin. Black Jack is, on the other hand, the less convenient table where the chances of winning against the dealer are higher and it is therefore the most convenient game for players! PAY ATTENTION: not suitable for first-time players!
N. 4 – THE LONGEST POKER GAME LASTED 8 YEARS!
Do you know that Poker is a resistance game and that there are games that also last one or two months? Do you think it’s more than enough? You can immagine how exhausting can be a match that has lasted for eight years! This happened in 1881, in a basement level of a Theater, in Arizona. Legend tells about 8 years, 5 months and 3 days match, with $10 million going from hand to hand and 24 hours a day. Who knows who won in the end!
