    Man, by virtue of his instinct to survive, is naturally a gambler. Given the risks of living day-to-day life, it was considered an act of skill to stay alive until the sun sets, especially during the Stone Age. As the human race began to produce systems that could facilitate the physiological need of survival, the gambling instinct that was inherent in man did not dissipate. Rather, it became stronger with the passage of time.

    The gambling instinct, generally, is displayed early into the history of human civilization. The Romans were notorious for their fierce and unforgiving gladiator matches, lottery which were mainly violent at least and visceral at best. By 80AD, the emperor Titus then conducted the very first official ceremonies at the Colosseum, thereby the festivities had begun. Slaves were pitted against each other in mostly battles to the death, and sometimes against wild beasts as well. Spectators relished the thought of betting on their own favorite gladiator, hoping that he would live to see the end of the glorious battle.

    But as time progressed, the violence of the human sport had proved to be too much for some, and gambling has been reduced to animal fights. Keep in mind, this has existed even prior to the human blood sport of gladiators, however they had become highly popularized in certain parts of Europe -particularly Spain, Portugal, the United Kingdom, France, as well as some parts of Asia such as the Philippines and Indonesia. Among these fights were bullfighting, cockfighting, and fox hunting.

    As European influence spread an increasing number of all throughout the continents of the world, the thrill of betting soon became a global phenomenon. Gradually, the hunger for the sight of blood was soon surpassed by the promise of amassment of wealth. The stakes were high, but made more appealing by the rise of establishments such as casinos. Betting was never more enjoyable.

    But alas, the collected momentum of sports betting was halted abruptly by the coming of the two World Wars since activities for example race meeting and lotteries became severely restricted. Its return only came in the mid-1950s and soon flourished again.

    Not to be outdone, sporting events still remained strong in gambling circles, as events such as horse races, basketball matches, and baseball games just seemed to beg for more incoming bets. The rise of communications technology also facilitated the creation of sports betting, with smart phone betting being a attractive option to folks that live far and away from the games. Companies such as Intertops in Antigua started this as far back as 1993.

    In the event the Internet finally came out for public access and personal use, the betting world evolved into a more closely-knit community. Globalization served its purpose in connecting the world in ways previously thought inconceivable -after all, who could have thought which you can bet on a game halfway throughout the world with such ease? In 1996, a company in Gibraltar called Microgaming took good thing about this trend and began developing software for use in other gaming companies all over the world. Others soon followed suit, and so online sports betting once we knew it was born.
