Introduction to history

The history of online casinos is short but fascinating. The very first online casino appeared in 1994 and was called InterCasino. It was launched by Mark Caravan by a software company called Microgaming. It was based in Antigua and Barbuda and offered casino games that could be played with software downloaded to the player’s computer. At the time, this was a big breakthrough as it meant that players could enjoy casino games without having to travel to a physical location.
