Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is not only the excitement and thrill, which made several online casino games popular. Their humble beginnings also play a significant role in making them even more appealing. As many often say, the more you know about a game, the more attractive they become.

Thus, here is a quick snapshot of the history of the most celebrated online casino games:

Pai Gow

Pai Gow is considered as one of the oldest online casino dice games that remain popular to this day. Since the term pai gow translates to “make nine,” it is often said to be the basis for baccarat. Apparently, the main objective of the game is to form the best hand, except that instead of cards, dice are used. The value of the combined dice should be nine (9) as its name implies or close to it.

Pai Gow uses thirty-two (32) Chinese dominoes and it is estimated that around 35,960 winning combinations can be formed from these tiles.

Mahjong

Mahjong is another tile game, which requires you to form different combinations. These are Chows, Pungs and Kongs. It also originated from China and was believed to be created by the great philosopher, Confucius.

Due to mahjong’s unquestionable popularity, most especially in the Asian region, a limited edition of Gucci mahjong set was made available to the public and sold for RM 10,000 for each set.

Baccarat

To this day, the debate on whether this game originated from France or Italy, remains unsettled. However, its game objective remains clear and that is to produce a hand, which has a total card value of nine (9).

In the previous years, baccarat was dubbed as the game of the rich and the famous. Players were required to wear formal suits and gowns before they can participate in this game.

Surprisingly, Ace has no value in this card game.

Baccarat is so popular that it was even featured in James Bond and Jackie Chan films.

Blackjack

Blackjack is another card game that has a cult-like following. Its main objective is to form a hand, which has a total card value of twenty-one (21) or close to it.

But did you know that this is the only card game, which can be beaten legally?

Yes, you heard it right. Card counting can shift the odds to your favor and destroy the house advantage. The said method was first developed by the so-called Four Horsemen of Aberdeen, who happened to be soldiers. The strategy was further refined and used by MIT students.

The story of those genius students was depicted in the film 21.

Indeed, knowing how a particular online casino game started gives you a heads-up of the things that you need to expect. The knowledge gained is also an invaluable aspect of having a memorable casino gaming experience.
