Games Inspired By The Best Artist In History

History is the basis of our existence. It has shaped how we behave, what we believe in, how we walk and talk. The casino world has explicitly evolved from the old times into the new, but a few fundamentals remain constant. The land-based casinos have developed to online casinos. Some rules have changed to accommodate the evolution, but the foundation of some remain untouched. For instance, the graphics on logos for individual games have improved immensely, but the basic rules stay the same. Playing cards still use cards, spin wheels even span, and roulette still uses chips.

Well, if you do appreciate history, the games mentioned below are a clear indication of the same.

1. Card Games
Card games, including poker and blackjack, have been greatly influenced by artistry through time. This is evidenced by a number of acknowledged high valued paintings in today's market. For instance, in the 16th century, the painting The Cardsharps by the artist Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio was made. It is a painting illustrating two boys’ playing cards, and one of them is hiding extra cards behind his back. Behind the honest boy, stands an older man who seems to be signaling to the cardsharp.

Another art piece is called Argument over a Card Game by the artist Jan Steen. It was a painting made in the 17th century where it depicts the art of gambling turning into drama over a classic game of cards.

The Card Players is yet another series of oil art paintings that were created by the artist Paul Cèzanne. The five paintings were made in the early-to-mid 1890's period. Each painting shows drunken peasants in taverns while they smoke and play cards.
The pieces above are a clear indication that card gambling has been there for centuries as a mode of entertainment for all; the young, youthful, and the old.

2. Spin Wheels
The popularity of spin wheels in today's online casino world is astounding. Spin wheels are even offered out in most online casinos as bonuses. For instance, you can get free spins no deposit by NetEnt casino. Where you get to participate in the game without making a deposit. Such that you can win a cash payout even without using a penny. Well, spin wheels have been there since time immemorial. It was used for the old TV shows for lottery winnings, and today the same mechanism is used in the online casinos.

3. Dice Games
Dice games such as backgammon and craps are also old-timer games that have stood the test of time. Their popularity spread throughout the globe, and they remain relevant. The set of craps, for instance, is found in almost all online casinos. Backgammon, on the other hand, may not be available on online casinos, but it still is accessible in the virtual world. You can easily find and download the game via app stores directly into your phone.

Take Away
Lastly, we can conclude by saying that casino games are merely not an establishment of today, but they are a recollection of ancient times. Used both for leisure and business, preserving quite a rich culture enjoyed by all.
