The games you can play online at great sites like Casino Betfair all have a history, all of them developed over the years by countless players to provide the high-quality games we all know and love. What might surprise you is the long and twisty roads that these games have taken to get to where they are today. Take Craps for instance, Craps is based on an old English dice game called Hazard that had a similar set-up but a more complex rule system for what the results could be. The game of hazard was eventually adopted by some French gamers who brought the game to America and eventually developed into Street Craps. The name itself is from a French word crapaud that refers to the squatting position players adopted while playing street craps. The main feature of street craps was using a curb as a backstop for the dice to hit and leave you with a result. During World War II, the game became popular with soldiers stationed abroad and they’d play it across an army issue blanket as a shooting surface. Eventually the game transitioned into the casino with the same simplified rules of Hazard but the familiar layout we know today. Craps isn’t the only game though, did you know that Roulette was originally invented by Blaise Pascal? Or that Blackjack is a combination of several European card games? This handy infographic will give you the time line of how these brilliant games came to be!
