A History of Poker
What we know as Poker today, actually has its origins in an ancient game that dates back to over 1,000 years ago. It’s roots can be traced across a number of continents and cultures, with some historians arguing that it came from a domino-card game, played by a 10th century Chinese emperor.
However, Poker’s closest relative is actually Poque, a game that developed in France in the 17th century (Roulettecan also be traced back to France – seems like the French love their gambling). Poque, and its German cousin Pochen, were both based on a 16th century Spanish game called Primero. Primero saw three cards dealt to each player, who then had to bluff as a vital part of the game.
Poque was then taken to North America by French colonists, starting in New Orleans and its surrounding area. English-speaking settlers then anglicized “Poque” to Poker, and adopted the features that we know today. Best Slot Machines to Play
The Move to Online Poker
For centuries, Poker was played in person by a group of players. That is until the advent of the Internet in the 1990s. Online gambling soon exploded, and Poker with it.
Today, it’s incredibly common to see online Poker available on most established casino sites.
During online Poker, a computer dealer will automatically deal cards to each player. If you’re playing Texas Hold’em, for example, each person will get two face down cards that only they can see. You’ll look at your cards, and play accordingly.
