The history of online gambling starts in the 1990s, predominantly in 1994-95 when the first law which authorized internet sites to provide real money online games was passed in Antigua and Barbuda. Soon after this ground-breaking step software companies were founded and the first online casino was created. It was called the Gaming Club and it is operational even today.

The first online casino sites provided only a handful of games if we compare that to hundreds of games they provide today. In those pioneer days the internet was in its infancy and computer technology was on significantly lower level. However, as online casinos were based on the idea of being replicas of land-based ones they provided the players with the chance to enjoy in the most popular games in real life, for example slots, roulette, blackjack, poker, etc.
