Gambling is popular amongst the young as well as the old. For many
individuals gambling is a source of earning while for others it is a
means to perfect entertainment. Today gambling is not just confined to
the four walls of a casino. It has made its way to houses by virtue of
computers (online gambling) and other gambling equipments. While many
people are enticed by online gambling, those who desire to have a real
feel of the game get gambling set up at their home only.

The gambling set ups are   more or less same for all the games though there
are some variations. For   instance the tables of different games are
different. A poker table   is unlike a blackjack one. But some of the
common gaming equipments   are dice, cards, coins etc.

Dice is perhaps the foremost requirement of any gambling sport. It also
can be the cheapest of all gambling equipments. This is because of the
myriad variety of dice available today. A plastic dice will be
significantly less expensive in comparison to an ivory made dice. In
ancient times stones, pebbles, chalks etc. personified dice. Since people
were not very particular regarding the equipments of the game, they would
mark the holes on any tiny handy nugget and commence their game.
Gradually dice came to acquire a proper cubical structure with pierced
holes on all the sides. However in comparison to a dice used in household
games, a casino dice has more precision. Casino dice is also known as
‘perfect dice’ as it is carved in a way that each side weighs equal after
the holes have been pierced on each side. This provides an equal
probability of either side being the outcome.

The other essential ingredient of gambling is ‘cards’. Usually cards are
exclusive to every casino. This is because the backside of the card bears
the logo of the casino. The casino cards are primarily of two types-
bridge size and poker wide. Initially cards were made out of hard paper
and different paintings were made on them. The suits and faces of
contemporary cards are a gift of France.

Casino tables have their own charm. These tables are designed differently
for different types of games and are quite expensive. For instance a
single poker table can cost its buyer several thousand dollars. But here
too prices vary with the quality of the table. The table face has a
woolen felt surface with the games name on it. Along with it the odds and
the areas for placing bets are also specified. However with the help of
blueprints people often make gambling tables on their own. This is the
most cost effective way to play the game.

Besides these assortments nowadays kits are available for different
games. For instance a bingo kit has in it everything (such as bingo
balls, markers, hand cranked ball cage etc.) that is required to play
bingo. These kits make children too quite familiar with the game.
