Eveningofodds.com is the idea of a small group of avid gamblers who wanted to explore the recent history of betting particularly in the early 20th century. During this period, we see the rise of the casino and the betting culture that eventually leads to the development of betting “paradises” like Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Macau and Monte Carlo.
Anyone who enjoys a trip to Vegas may have wondered how all these great gambling centers came into being. Even those who just like to bet on the horses or on big games during the weekend have probably thought about the early days of gambling as depicted in movies like “The Sting.”
The Evening of Odds team has put together a series of feature articles and blog posts that will provide insight into these early days of gambling society. The feature pages look at how the modern gambling industry arose and at how people gambled in the past. Blog posts cover contemporary topics from news headlines dealing with both old and current betting stories.
