InterCasino has recently launched a new gaming software platform, removing all their previous gaming offerings in the process. The casino now has games primarily from Cryptologic, a well-known software provider.
This transfer was scheduled to happen in April, but InterCasino’s owners chose to delay it until they could finalize the last few details that would make them happy.
The transition went smoothly, and players can still access their accounts with the same login credentials. All players with real money in their accounts should still find it all, although the casino has asked that they contact customer service if they have any problems.
Amaya Gaming, other software companies bought Cryptologic a year ago. It means that InterCasino now includes games from several high-quality providers, giving players access to a new and exciting selection of games.
Software aside, the casino is working on other improvements so that existing customers can try out the latest software.
YOU HAVEN’T MET JACK YET! THE ORIGINS OF THE CARD GAME
The excitement of cards attracts players for various reasons, whether it’s an immediate pleasure of winning a hand of Blackjack or the quiet thrill of a Poker game. A simple game of cards has a long history, beginning in the Far East and ending on gambling tables everywhere.
THE MIDDLE EAST FOLLOWS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE WEST
From China to the Middle East, playing cards spread quickly. The Muslim world gave playing cards a new twist, adding the four colors, card rank, and face cards now seen in a regular deck. The four colors began as coins, cups, swords, and rods and evolved; coins became diamonds, cups became hearts, spades took the place of swords, and rods became clubs. The Egyptian Mamluk deck eventually had 52 cards, four suits, ten number cards, and three court cards. A malik, meaning King, a nib malik, meaning Viceroy, and a dan nib, meaning Second Substitute, were among the court cards.
FRENCH-INSPIRED PLAYING CARDS
By the time cards reached Europe in the 14th century, many different designs had emerged. Card colors depicting flowers, bears, rabbits, falcons, roses, hounds, and wild boars varied according to cultural influences: hearts, bells, leaves, and acorns appeared on card colors in Germany. Middle Eastern cases continued to appear on Spanish and Italian maps, with variations of gold coins, swords, cups, and sticks. Animals, musical instruments, swords, long spears, and halberds appeared on a Bohemian deck of cards from Eastern Europe. The original design, which can still be seen today on classic card games, is attributed to the French, as with many iconic trends.
