The Chinese are Responsible for Gambling

 

Although the act of gambling has been around for a long time, the Chinese get credit for many of the games that are played today. Pai Gow Poker is one of the reasons why Poker took off the way it did. The Chinese created this game and had great fun with it. Eventually, it became a way to win and lose money.

Pai Gow did move throughout the world and grew in popularity. After this growth, it wasn’t long that European countries found themselves developing games such as Roulette and other forms of Poker were being born. Games like Baccarat, Craps, and Blackjack also have European roots. That is why you will find a European way that games are played and an American way. Take Roulette, for instance. You have a European Roulette wheel and an American wheel.

So we can blame the Chinese as far as we know at this point for the fact that gambling has been a way of life for many people for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
