Online Casino History

Back in the days when there was no internet connectivity and thus no World Wide Web people had an urge to gamble. Illegal gambling dens were everywhere and many of these slowly became legal entities. Casinos were a shady business with gangsters and a certain breed of businessman that may have a few shady deals under his belt. These establishments pulled in the masses offering low to high stakes entertainment.

Nowadays, rules and regulations have changed the casino industry forever, but there has never been anything as close to the invention of online casinos that has affected the industry more.

Back in 1994 Microgaming released their very first online casino software platform. This was a basic system released on the internet with no casino management or player management tools. It was only a place where you could deposit and play and then withdraw immediately. It wasn’t until 1995 that the casino became complete with the introduction of Cryptologic’s security system that allowed player management and safe financial transactions.

Cryptologic was really only a software security company when the company contributed to Microgaming’s casino system. However, today the company is a well-known online casino platform distributer now owned by Amaya Gaming.

With only Microgaming in the market for online casinos, Cryptologic saw an opportunity to take their piece of the pie and so the company did. The company opened their own online casino known as Intercasino and this online casino is still very popular today. This was the second online casino to have opened and joined Microgaming’s ‘The Gaming Club’ online casino.

This is where the industry started. With the convenience of being able to play online casino games from one’s own home despite the internet connections being slow back then, the opportunity to do so for many was too much of an opportunity to pass up. There was no need to leave your home, no need for expensive trips to the casino and no need to deal with cash or chips. The convenience of being able to click on the table you want to play on and not having to wait for seat at the table you want to play on was one of the reasons online casinos became so popular.

Nowadays, online casinos have gone one step further with technology. Smartphone and touchpad technology now means players can play real money online casino games while they are on the move. All the same casino bonus codes and extras are included via mobile play just as they would be via desktop play. In addition, as technology grows, so does the online gaming industry, which has made online real money gaming as incredible as it is today.
