카지노의 역사 및 유래
Casino originated in Italian, which means "small house." Renaissance aristocrats refer to annexes of social, recreational dance, billiards, and gambling.
It was popular at first, but today it refers to general gambling houses such as beaches and resorts. Casinos were generalized in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries for financing purposes, and currently famous for casino industries are Monte Carlo, the Principality of Monaco, and Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. There is Macau in Asia, and Macau was renovated by Portugal in the 16th century and the city was built in the Portuguese style.
After that, with the return to China, mainland Chinese expeditionary gambling groups flocked, Macau was transformed into a gambling city. The Incheon Olympus Hotel Casino was the first casino to be opened in Korea in 1967. There were no restrictions on access at the beginning of the opening, but as the law was revised in June 1969, access to Koreans was restricted and became exclusively for foreigners. In 1968, the Seoul Walkerhill Hotel Casino was opened, and the opening was expanded to major tourist attractions such as Jeju, Busan, Gyeongju, and Sokcho through the 7th and 80th centuries according to the tourism industry revitalization policy. In the early days, casinos have a strong image of gambling houses, while today's casinos have been changed into a new concept of vacation destination that combines various entertainment with tourism.
Korea's representative High1 Resort has been operated by Gangwon Land since 2006, and is represented as a good resort to enjoy throughout the four seasons, including golf courses, hotels, condominiums, starting with a ski resort at the end of 2006.
If the creation of online casinos could contribute to a single major event, it would undoubtedly be the enforcement of the Antigua Barbuda government's Free Trade and Processing Act. The law was passed in 1994 and authorized the small Caribbean country to license companies that want to start online casinos. In the same year, there was another important event more than 4,000 miles from the sea. A software company called Microgamming was established on the Isle of Man.
"The first interesting fact is that the game club was the first online casino."
At the time, the company had a very small team and, although not many in terms of budget, it didn't stop them from being responsible for creating the world's first fully functional online casino.. It was called the Gaming Club and had little in common with today's online gaming venues. Nevertheless, at a time when most people were still struggling to understand the concept of the World Wide Web, it sent the world into a storm, offering gamblers the opportunity to play casino games on computers. Over the years, many other companies have made similar claims and tried to take credit for their work. But the incredible dedication and hard work of Microgaming's employees, and later their incredible achievements, made them a true symbol of innovation and established the company as a true leader in the online gambling world to this day.
Less than a year later, in 1995, another important player appeared. CryptoLogic is a company that specializes in real-world cash transactions over the Internet, and their products at the time were a missing part of creating real-world cash online casinos. They launched InterCasino, one of the oldest online casinos still working to this day and the first online casino to offer players the opportunity to bet real cash. CryptoLogic revolutionizes the way money transactions work online, giving players a fast and secure process, which makes them eligible for a special place in the online gambling hall of fame alongside names like Microgaming.
