Certain forms of gambling have long and storied histories dating back as far as the 17th century – at least as far as historians can trace. We’ve created a fantastic set of articles giving you the lowdown on how your favourite casino games became what we know them as today, and how they have evolved from their original formats. There are also some cool stories about the world’s most famous gamblers, and how they earned their notoriety in the industry – whether through enormous wins, underdog growth tales or devastating losses.
Popular Culture & Casinos
Many of us learned about the casino gambling industry through Hollywood. The glamorous atmosphere of the land-based houses lends itself marvellously to the likes of James Bond or even as a backdrop for mafia movies. Thanks to the real dramatic potential of the activity, there are a large number of blockbuster films set in casinos, as well as music inspired by the films and the casinos themselves. There are also lots of books that we’ve identified that focus on the topic of gambling, including tales of big wins and heists, as well as strategic guides from mathematicians on how to perfect gambling strategies.
