A Brief History About the Rules of Some Popular Casino Card Games

So, you’re enjoying your time playing some online casino card games such as Poker
and Blackjack but have you ever stopped to think how the rules of these games were established?

If you are curious, this article will provide a brief history of the rules of some popular
casino card games. Do read through the rest of the article to find a little bit of their
storied history.

Poker

It has been known that Poker is actually quite an old game. In fact, it is quite old that it
dates back in 969 AD. The ‘Cheating Game’ as it is called back in 1830 is quite a
popular card game and many versions of Poker have existed ever since.

The most popular version of the game is Texas Hold’em and the main reason why that
is so is that the game is quite easy to understand play with friends and family.

Other variations of the game include the Stud Poker, 5-Card Draw (which was a popular
form of poker that was played in the majority of the Civil War), 7-Card Stud, Razz, and Omaha.

Despite the many subtle or overt variations of the game, there is one constant that is
applied in every iteration- bluffing.

Bluffing is a huge part of poker mainly because it can help influence the moves of your
opponents, as well as yours.

In the early 1700s, the modern poker, the one that we use today, was made. It uses a
standard deck of cards (52 cards in total) and the player is each given a five-card hand.

Blackjack

One of the best casino games to play if you want the lowest possible house edge,
Blackjack is actually 300 years old and it first originated from French casinos, believe it
or not.

The game was originally called Vingt-et-Un which loosely translates to the number 21.

This is a nod to the main objective of the game which his to beat the dealer’s hand by
scoring 21 points.

The rules of the game were used back in the 1700s and to this day, the rules remained
the same. It was only known as Blackjack in the 1930s where Nevada Casinos would

provide gamblers with a 10-1 odds if they were being dealt a Jack of Spades with two
black suits.

Baccarat

The name of the game was coined in the 1400s where a player that gets 10s and the
face cards are worth nothing (hence, they were called Baccara in Italy). The game was
so popular that it inspired Ian Fleming to create the iconic spy known as James Bond.

The original rules of the game were a bit different than the one we’re currently
accustomed to. Originally, there are four different dealers that hand out cards to players
and each one of them will take turns becoming the banker of the game. Nowadays, we
deem the dealer and the banker as one entity.

Faro

Faro used to be a card game that was so popular but it is not as popular as it once was.
Still, this game was created in the 17 th century and was popularized even more in the
18 th century.

It was quite popular in the Civil War Era since most of the soldiers’ only form of
entertainment is by playing different card games.
