Gambling has existed since time immemorial. Our ancestors have known the consequences of gaming, especially gaming in the public houses where they regularly entertained their guests. Ancient Rome was the first important city to create such a concept, while Greece and Egypt also developed this idea. Gambling spread all around the world, from India to China, throughout the world. Today, the Internet has made gambling all the more available and widespread.
Historically, the earliest form of gaming was in the Greek and Roman coliseums. These places had a enormous number of'gypsy' merchants who would come and go from the various gaming establishments and would carry exotic products. These goods were extremely valuable, as they hadn't yet been manufactured. However, it's difficult to say whether gaming actually originated in such public places - there are lots of indications that gaming may have begun much sooner than is generally believed.
Over the years, different gambling jurisdictions began to develop, each with its own special set of regulations and laws.
