Is it just about the casino in online gambling?

A great deal of online gambling does for sure take place in a casino.  The phenomenon was begun towards the end of the 1990s with the explosion of Texas hold’em poker.  It has progressed beyond that to levels previously unanticipated and probably undreamt of.  Now one of the biggest draws of online gambling is the array Blackjack games that are available.  Just on one site, there are tens of different ways to experience various competitive aspects of Blackjack.

In addition to Blackjack and poker there are many other aspects of a casino that are inherent in online gambling.  Slots are growing daily in popularity and with technology being what it is; they can reasonably well recreate the slot machines in a bricks and mortar casino.  Then there is baccarat, Craps, roulette and more.

However, not all online gambling is about the casino.  Sports’ betting already a huge sub-part of the gambling industry is readily available online and continues to grow rapidly.  In addition there are designated bingo sites, making the game of bingo available to more people than the traditional image of the blue-rinsed brigade.  It was arguably inevitable that when the scope and scale of the Internet became clear that betting would develop in a big way and that online gambling would be able to attract, largely because of some feeling of anonymity, people who would never usually have walked off the street and into a bookmakers or a casino.

Play With Backgammon Checkers from the Past

A lot of backgammon players might not know this, but there is a way to spice up your game without adding any new strategies or visiting any fancy casinos.  In fact, the answer lies primarily in spicing up your backgammon checkers.

 

 

Backgammon has been around for centuries, I’ve even heard since the ancient Egyptians, so you can bet in that amount of time there have been some pretty crazy backgammon boards created.  One of the things many internet backgammon sites have begun to do is offer players the chance to play on all sorts of different backgammon boards, new and old, from around the world that are uploaded for virtual play.  There are even some boards the sites create that are interactive and just plain fun.  For example, I played a board based off of a sea battle where the backgammon checkers were boats and when you hit an opponent they would have a fight and your opponent would get sunk.  Okey, a little cheesy, but it’s also a lot of fun and a great way to shake up typical play.

The coolest backgammon boards, though, are the ones that are based off of real life, ancient boards.  You’ll see amazing backgammon checkers and board designs that were actually used by backgammon players a thousand years ago; now that’s pretty cool.

It won’t take the place of the traditional backgammon boards we use today but none-the-less, playing these boards is a whole lot of fun and a great way to take a break for typical competitive play.
