The History of The Casino

In modern Italian, the word ‘casino’ refers to a ‘closed house’, or ‘bordello’, while the gambling house is called a casino - note the accent on the ‘o’.

Today, casinos are big businesses – there are Casino – Hotels all over the world, including Europe, America, and Asia, as well as online casinos with customers from all over the world.

The term Casino came in to use as a gambling establishment during the 19th century. Originally, casinos were used for a variety of activities, including sports, gaming, theatre, and public meetings. The Hanko Casino in Finland was used only as a banquet hall, and no gambling took place on the premises.

The online casino industry has had many problems over the past few years – including issues with the legality of gambling in different countries, and even different states within the USA. At the end of 2007, the World Trade Organization helped many countries reach settlements with the USA where prevented foreign casino companies from operating within North America, in return for annual compensation.

The term Casino has not always referred to a place where gambling activities take place. It originally referred to a small villa or pavilion, built for pleasure, and usually located on the grounds of a larger Italian villa. This kind of building can still be found in certain parts of Italy.
