|17th c. card game [Wikipedia]|
I have never gambled for real, and don't think I ever will, but I really like the free games on the internet where you win and bet all sorts of credits and pretend money. It's a way of gambling online without having to travel to Las Vegas or, you know, actually spend money.
But if you ever do want to try an online casino, its probably a good idea to educate yourself thoroughly about the various Do's and Don'ts and to check out a good review site that gives you an overview of your choices. Then you'll know just where you can have a good game of slots, video poker, craps, roulette and blackjack. Whether you're playing in the US, the UK or in Europe, you'll be able to find the reviews you need to lead you to just the right place to play.
Gaming review sites aren't just a resource for finding reputable online casinos. You can also learn the history of some of the games. Modern poker, for example, has its origins in card games as early as the 15th century. It really became popular in Victorian America, though, on the Mississippi riverboats.
On review sites you can also pick up a few poker tips that will make your penny bets even more fun that they already are. I intend to win a few pennies this winter with my new-found skills, that's for sure.
