Gambling traces its origin & roots tens of centuries back in the times of before Christ. It has seen a lot to rise and fall, empires to grow and emperors to gamble up them. Let us recreate a scenario of all what happened that make the gambling what it is today.
Tell me frankly, “Who doesn’t wish to grow wealthier and rich??”
This passive dream of getting wealthier has been prevalent in the subconscious mind of the human beings from the beginning of society. Now a lot of people believe that luck is all what necessary for it while others believe that gambling is holding the nerves and playing the right card at the right time on the correct opponent. Some others believe it to be the next level ming game, where one player tries to understand the thought process of another, & in turn, tries to defeat it.
Let’s trail the tail of it
With the oldest trace found in the pages of history & archeological evidence, gambling was a sort of jury and trail system in order to resolve land disputes in 2300 B.C. It has been found scribbled in the top of the heritage buildings & one of them is the Great Wall of China. The disputed property was put on the bait and then it was gambled, the owner used to take possession for it.
Aren’t you amazed it hear it, what it was its introduction and what purpose is it solving today?
Hold on & buckle up, there are few more to come.
Apart from “real estate” disputes, disputes on the ownership of the herds and cattle were also juried and resolved through gambling in lieu of the crops and edible materials, in later times crops and foods were replaced by precious gems and riches, ornaments and coins.
Role of Religion in the spread of Gambling
In my sense, the firm believers of God are the most determinant person who placed their foot in the Earth. Their belief in God and religion used to make them believe that one day God would look at them and that day they would bank up for the rest of their lives.
Hope is the essence of life and this time here also hopes of getting rich, mixed with their strong desire of growing rich and their belief of religion blend together to bring more and more people of older times into this arena.
Ban lits the real fire of it’s spread around the globe
There is a common human attitude,
“what is abstained from doing, gives us the desire of practicing that again & again”
The real spread of the gambling in the new word and modern civilization took off with the implementation of its ban in several counties.
The ban hammer of illegalization was necessary at a point of time because gambling was evolving and it was affecting the social lives in many other ways. Apart from bankruptcy, gambling set its evil foot into national sports, entertainment industry and it was commercialized.
Later on, a lot of counties have completely banned its practice while some other have heavily restricted its practiced with proper rules and norms in licensed pubs & casinos.
Gambling in the 21st century
Casinos & gambler with a suspicious character is on the verge of getting abolished in the next decade to come. The last decade was of online presence, this one is of cryptocurrency & blockchain. The merits of them combine together to provide a better gambling experience than the actual one through virtual gambling hubs, betting portals and websites.
The noteworthy benefits of it are as follows:
- Dissolution of physical presence, encouraging atomicity
- Quick betting, easy maintenance
- Gamble on the go, bait anywhere and everywhere at your ease

No doubt gambling from a mere jury trail system to a fun game to aristocracy practice, following commercialization through casinos, pubs and now evolving to online betting portals – surely this is a long route it has traveled but it has many more miles to go.
With peoples unending desire to make more and more money, gambling has a bright future ahead. And now after it’s collaboration with science, the sky is the limit
