History of Gambling

  • i
Not posting for so long, perhaps only a week old but there is a sense of missed to update my blog. Besides the busy semester at college exams and some demands of work, it is also due to the old hobby that blossomed again (HLBK) that is playing games on a social networking site Facebook is "poker". Games that can spur this adrenaline (waahh lebai .. ) made ​​me complacent and addictions to be able to play (hahahaha. ..), although the chip is up. Game one was listed gambling game that uses the media as a means of cards and betting chips at the poker table, of course this game in cyberspace. But there are also a handful of people make this game as a source of gambling like a real quest to buy and sell chips that owned it offline. This time around I want to trace the beginnings of gambling and its development throughout the world.

The history of gambling has yet to be explained exactly when gambling began to be known by man. According to Cohan (1964), gambling has existed since prehistoric times. Perjudiaan even often regarded as old as human civilization. In the Mahabharata can be seen that the Pandavas became lost kingdom and exiled to the forest for 13 years because it lost in a gambling game against the Kauravas. Gambling behavior in the western world has been known since ancient Greece.

The gamblers are primitive shamans who make predictions into the future by using stones, sticks or animal bones are thrown into the air and fell on the ground. Usually that predicted at that time was the fate of someone in the future. At that fate is determined by the position of the fall of rocks, sticks or bones while landing on the ground. In subsequent developments landing position is regarded as an interest to be at stake.Hewing Alice (in Stanford & Susan, 1996) in his book Something for Nothing: A History of Gambling suggested that the ancient Egyptians are very pleased to bet in a game like that played by the children in the present where they guess the number of fingers two men based on odd or even numbers. The ancient Romans loved the coin-tossing games and lotteries, which learned from China. Ancient Greeks also used the same thing. In addition, they also enjoyed a game of dice. In ancient Rome became very popular dice game. The king like Nero and Claudine took the game of dice as an important part of royal events. But the game of dice to disappear along with the collapse of the Roman empire, and only rediscovered a few centuries later in an Arab fortress named Hazart, during the crusades.After the dice again introduced in Europe around the year 1100an by the former crusade soldier, dice game broke out again. Many of the royal family of England and France who lost gambling place called Hazard (probably taken from the name of the place where the dice are found again). Until the 18th century, Hazard is still popular for kings and travelers in the gamble.In the 14th century, a card game also began to enter Europe, carried by the traveler who comes from China. The first card is made in Europe are made in Italy and contains 78 images of paintings are very beautiful. In the 15th century, France reduced the number of cards to 56 and began to produce cards for all of Europe. At this time the Queen of England, Elizabeth I was introducing lotteries to raise revenues to improve the country's ports.Along with doing the shipping and trade and the discovery of some new continent, the diversity of types of gambling games distributed by the participating merchants and travelers. This condition is increasingly expand gambling options for the type of game that was brought by the traders and travelers is actually just an addition of a kind already known by the local community. With the diversity of types of gambling games and ease of playing the gambling techniques easily and quickly spread all over the world.Types of GamblingStanford Wong and Susan Spector (1996), in the book Gambling Like a Pro, dividing the 5 categories of gambling based on the psychological characteristics of the majority of the gamblers.
