1.2 MY OPINION ABOUT CASINOS
Whoever sizits LasVegas is amazed by the height of the bildings and by the number of casinos where youenter to win and you cannot give up hoping you become rich. The casino is a special place dedicated to gambling. Casinos can usually be found in big cities or tourist areas, especially the American ones, where they have known their true fame. They are most often combined with facilities such as hotels, restaurants and luxury bars or performance halls. The most famous casinos are certainly those in Las Vegas, but other cities have become known over time for the number and quality of casinos.
1.3 THE HISTORY OF CASINOS
The term casino comes from and over time has had many meanings until today, known throughout the world. In the beginning, a casino designated an establishment where several types of activities took place, including gambling. Although the exact origin of gambling is unknown, to a greater or lesser extent, gambling was known to all civilizations at various stages of their evolution. Even though at first they were not so elaborate and regulated, various games of chance appeared in all corners of the world. The first real casino is believed to be the one in Venice, opened in and still in operation. Others claim that the first legal casino appeared in 1765, in the Swiss resort of Baden.
The real development of gambling took place in America, where the western buildings where gambling was practiced and gambling were called saloons. Players participate in less advanced versions of today's card and dice games. Although gambling and implicitly casinos were banned in the United States at the beginning of the last century, some regions and states have chosen to allow the development of casinos in their territory. Currently, there are casinos in most countries of the world, except those that have completely banned any gambling activity. The most developed countries and territories in terms of this industry are the United States, Monte Carlo, Macao, Hong Kong and others.
