Development of Casino in the World
If seen from its history, this casino has been popular since 1931. Where in that year gambling games were legal games to be played around the world. Starting from the state of Nevada which is the country that founded the first casino in the world in 1978. Then there is the state of New Jersey which is the second largest country in the United States with a gambling center in it.
After that, entering the early 2000s, there was one city in Atlantic City namely Monte Carlo and Las Vegas which was the center of the leading casino games at the time. Well, then the position was taken by Macau as a country with the largest casino game center in the world that is famous until now.
Actually, this casino originally existed in Ancient Egypt, then in the middle period spread to several European countries, one of which is Italy, where some of the games such as poker and baccarat have begun to be known by many people.
At that time, the place to play casino was done in a giant villa in which there was a very large stage which was always used as a place for the gathering of nobles to enjoy sharing dances, songs, as well as playing casino.
Then, the tradition of Ancient Egypt began to spread in 1638 in Europe, where one of the countries namely Venice established a casino house called Ridotto. This casino house is the first casino house built in Europe and only opened when the carnival season has arrived. The rest, this house will continue to be closed until the next carnival is celebrated.
However, the development of casinos in Venice did not last long because around 1770, the government in power at that time in Venice decided to close the casino house on the grounds that the game could cause his nobles to fall into poverty due to not being able to win the match.
This is different from the development of casinos in the United States, at which time the casino was named Saloons, which was very prominent in the cowboy era, which was used as a meeting place for states in the United States such as Chicago, New Orleans, St. Louis and San Francisco.
But it did not last long, the fate of Saloons was the same as Riddoto, in the early 2000s the place was closed because the government had formed a law that strictly forbade casino games. But in 1931, this game was ratified by the government and is still played by many people today.
Development of Casino in Indonesia
After you know the history of the emergence of casino developments in the world, then how can this game spread to Indonesia? Of course, the spread of this game was brought by European invaders at the time. Where they not only colonized us, but also brought some customs or culture to Indonesia.
Well, before 1980, casino games in Indonesia had indeed been legalized by the government in power, namely during the time Ali Sadikin served as Governor of Jakarta, which of course the center of the game was in Jakarta.
But entering the early 1980s, the new government asserted that this game was legalized so that a law was formed to regulate the prohibition of casino games. Yes, although it cannot be denied that there are still many people who are secretly doing this game.
Especially at this time, casino games can be done online where the players only need a smartphone or other device with a good internet connection. So that the existence of this online casino game can make it easier for players to play this game wherever and whenever without fear of being acted on by the authorities.
