Today, Online Gambling is one of the fastest developing areas on the Internet. The thing is that the universal availability of computers and, furthermore, mobile devices give their owners access to the most advanced online dens and gambling houses on the global scale. In 2022, you are unlikely to find a person of eighteen years old who has never heard of online poker, free spins, deposits, and of course, the opportunity to win considerable sums of money in various online casinos!

But how did it all come to life? Who laid the first bricks in the foundation of what was supposed to entertain and excite players from all over the world? Let us try and figure it out by taking a look into the past.

How did Online Casinos Appear?

It started as long as 35+ years back with the inception of the first-ever gambling den that appeared on the Internet in the middle of the golden ’90s. The quality of websites back then was only anticipating the major advance; however, in Antigua and Barbuda, one of the first online casino platforms started its operation.

Why that far? The conditions in the region as to the gambling sites under the Free Trade and Processing Act were favorable for initiating an online casino business.

Microgaming Casinos

This software provider is widely known now; back in the day, in the mid-’90s, this company started its way to prominence. By the way, it is still among the top stars on the online gambling horizon. They produce software compatible with nearly all types of online gambling houses: starting from regular online casinos like casinó LVBET and, specifically, online poker dens.

What is Kahnawake?

The Kahnawake Gaming Commission’s appearance is considered to be one of the milestones of the online gambling industry. Incepted in 1996, the commission focused on the control of gambling licenses. Starting from there, the industry was destined to face a brilliant future, which we experience now and are yet to see.

Famous Online Poker

Truly, the first online poker casino was established in 1998, and it was Planet Poker: it immediately became viral, and thousands of gamblers joined the poker community. Sadly enough, the platform broke down due to some technical reasons, but new names started to appear in its place, such as Paradise Poker, initiated in Costa RIca, the famous Party Poker, and PokerStars. This was the beginning of a new era, where a non-professional gambler could win considerable sums.

The history of Online Gambling has seen everything, from high rises to failures, but the industry is expected to have a great future, as the technical progress advances. And who knows, maybe you and I will soon see a new total boom in the area and, perhaps, take our part in it.
