In ancient Greece , tabas were already played as a game of chance. It consisted of the throwing of bones as if they were a die since the different faces of the taba had different shapes and therefore different probabilities of coming out.
In some of these games bets were made (sometimes large amounts of money) on which side of the taba could be exposed.
Online game start
It seems that it was only yesterday when in 1994 the first licenses for online casinos were granted in Antigua and Barbuda. Time flies! There is no doubt that technology has changed our lives in all aspects and in our gaming habits as well.
It wasn’t so long ago that the only option we had to play online roulette for a while or spin a few slots was to physically go to the nearest casino. And many of us, unfortunately, had none for miles around.
Phones and tablets
Since its appearance in the 90s, online gaming has relied on Adobe Flash software for its games and these games have worked perfectly on computers. However, in recent years mobile technology (smartphones and tablets) has begun to take advantage.
This has meant that all operators have had to adapt to the new times and new devices in which much smaller screens, battery life … have to be taken into account.
These new challenges made many casinos opt for HTML5 technology that is compatible with any screen and device, whether Android or IOS, and has advantages such as being open source – that is, it does not cost anything – and therefore even the Smaller casinos can afford it.
And it automatically adapts to a wide variety of devices!
Microgaming is considered to be the first to launch the first online casino back in 1994. Getting into that world at that time was considered risky and revolutionary but the company saw the potential that was hidden in the online casino.
Since then they have not stopped innovating and providing many other companies with their software and ideas such as the progressive jackpot.
Digital online gaming is also so impressive in large part thanks to the Swedish developer NetEnt , with spectacular graphics, special effects, extraordinary sounds and an exceptionally intuitive interface design for users. For this reason, the company is always at the top of the ranking of the best digital casino providers.
A title much loved by gamers around the world is naturally Gonzo’s Quest which is one of NetEnt’s flagship products. The 3D version of this slot machine was launched in the summer of 2018. This slot was the first of its kind in the history of online casino and marked the beginning of a new stage in the development of virtual gaming.
Virtual reality has caused a revolution in today’s casino world. This technology allows the user to feel a hyper-realistic participation effect and immerses you in the immersive world of gambling without leaving home. You will feel like in Las Vegas!
In addition, it can be experienced on the computer and on mobile devices. It can also be played without glasses although the effect is not as realistic. The future of gaming really lies in virtual reality and augmented reality, and just like standard online casinos, there are promotions of all kinds in VR casinos.
The most notable companies in the virtual casino world are SlotsMillion covering the slot market, Poker VR covering (naturally) poker and Mr Green for roulette and blackjack.
They are possibly the most popular game among virtual reality options. When you hit a winning line the symbols seem to literally jump off the screen!
You can also see other players walking around the casino and the slots they play and they can see yours too, but don’t worry, you can’t see the balance.
Virtual reality blackjack offers players the same fun and excitement of playing blackjack online and much more! You will be able to reach and place your chips on the table, see and feel the cards that are dealt to you and decide to follow, stop or double, just as you would in a real casino.
Roulette is the third most popular virtual game . As in other virtual reality casino games, each spin on the black and red wheel has taken live roulette one step further, giving players the opportunity to immerse themselves in the game and have an immersive experience.
