.

Gambling , as distinguished from Gaming , or playing, I take to mean an indulgence in those games, or exercises, in which chance assumes a more important character; and my object is to draw attention to the fact, that the money motive increases, as chance predominates over skill.

It is taken up as a quicker road to wealth than by pursuing honest industry, and everyone engaged in it, be it dabbling on the Stock Exchange, Betting on Horse Racing, or otherwise, hopes to win, for it is clear that if he knew he should lose, no fool would embark in it. The winner is not reverenced, and the loser is not pitied. But it is a disease that is most contagious, and if a man is known to have made a lucky coup , say, on the Stock Exchange, hundreds rush in to follow his example, as they would were a successful gold field discovered—the warning of those that perish by the way is unheeded.

Of the universality of gambling there is no doubt, and it seems to be inherent in human nature. We can understand its being introduced from one nation to another—but, unless it developed naturally, how can we account for aboriginals, like the natives of New England, who had never had intercourse with foreign folk, but whom Governor Winslow [1] describes as being advanced gamblers.

Mercury, however, being likewise in love with the same goddess, in recompense for the favours which he had received from her, plays at tables with the Moon, and wins from her the seventieth part of each of her illuminations; these several parts, making, in the whole, five new days, he afterwards joined together, and added to the three hundred and sixty, of which the year formerly consisted: which days are even yet called by the Egyptians, the Epact , or Superadded , and observed by them as the birth days of their Gods.

But to descend from the sublimity of mythology to prosaic fact, we know that the Egyptians played at the game of Tau , or Game of Robbers, afterwards the Ludus Latrunculorum of the Romans, at that of Hab em hau , or The Game of the Bowl , and at Senat , or Draughts.

These were all, probably, games of skill; but in the same case is an ivory Astragal, the earliest known form of dice, which could have been of no use except for gambling. The bones used in [4] gambling were, generally, those of sheep; but the Astragals of the antelope were much prized on account of their superior elegance. They also had regular dice, numbered like ours, which have been found at Thebes and elsewhere; and, although there are none in our national museum, there are some in that of Berlin; but these are not considered to be of great antiquity.

The Egyptians also played at the game of Atep , which is exactly like the favourite Italian game of Mora, or guessing at the number of fingers extended. The Chinese and Indian games of skill, such as Chess, are of great antiquity; but, perhaps, the oldest game is that of Enclosing , called Wei-ki in Chinese, and Go in Japanese. It is said to have been invented by the Emperor Yao, b. It is a game like Krieg spiel , a game of war. There are not only typical representatives of the various arms, but the armies themselves, some men on each side; they form encampments, and furnish them with defences; and they slay, not merely a single man, as in other games, but, frequently, hosts of men.

There is no record of its being a gambling game, but the modern Chinese is an inveterate gambler. As far as we know, the ancient Jews did not gamble except by drawing, or casting lots; and as we find no word against it in the inspired writings, and, as even one of the apostles was chosen by lot Acts i.

We are not told how the lots were drawn ; but the casting of lots pre-supposes the use of dice, and this seems to have been practised from very early times, for we find in Lev. Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit.

According to the lot shall the possession thereof be divided between many and few. But in their later days, as at the present time, the Jews did gamble, as Disney [3] tells us when writing on Gaming amongst the Jews. Some of their reasons for excluding such from the Magistracy were, that their gaming gave sufficient presumption of their Avarice , and, besides, was an employment no way conducing to the public good : a covetous man, and one who is not wise and public spirited, being very unfit for offices of so much trust and power, as well as dignity.

The presumption of Avarice was the cause, also and a very good one , of not admitting the evidence of such a man. And that other notion they had, that the gain arising from play was a sort of Rapine , is as just a ground for the Infamy which stained his character, and subjected him to these incapacities. Talus , before spoken of. Subsequently the Tessera, or cubical die, similar to that now used, came into vogue samples of which may be seen in Case N.

Loaded dice have been found in Pompeii. They also had other games among the Romans, such as Par et Impar odd or even , in which almonds, beans, or anything else, were held in the hand, and guessed at—and the modern Italian game of Mora was also in vogue.

But gambling was looked down upon in Rome, and the term aleator , or gambler, was one of reproach—and many were the edicts against it: utterly useless, of course, but it was allowed during the Saturnalia.

Money lost at play could not be legally recovered by the winner, and money [7] paid by the loser might by him be recovered from the person who had won and received the same. The excavations at Pompeii and other places in modern times have revealed things not known in writings; and, treating of the subject of gambling, we are much indebted to Sig. The meaning of this sign is double: it tells the customers that a good supper was always ready within, and that the gaming tables were always open to gamblers.

The sign, in fact, is a tabula lusoria in itself, as shown by the characteristic arrangement of the thirty-six letters in three lines, and six groups of six letters each. Orthography has been freely sacrificed to this arrangement abemus standing for habemus , cena for cenam. He also tells us that so intense was the love of the Roman for games of hazard, that wherever he had excavated the pavement of a portico, of a basilica, of a bath, or any flat surface accessible to the public, he always found gaming tables engraved or scratched on the marble or stone slabs for the amusement of idle men, always ready to cheat each other out of their money.

The evidence of this fact is to be found in the Forum, in the Basilica Julia, in the corridors of the Coliseum, on the [8] steps of the temple of Venus at Rome, in the square of the front of the portico of the Twelve Gods, and even in the House of the Vestals, after its secularisation in Gaming tables are especially abundant in barracks, such as those of the seventh battalion of vigiles , near by St Critogono, and of the police at Ostia and Porto, and of the Roman encampment near Guise, in the Department of the Aisne.

Sometimes when the camp was moved from place to place, or else from Italy to the frontiers of the empire, the men would not hesitate to carry the heavy tables with their luggage.

To these scenes of violence the wording of the tables often refers; such as. You know nothing about the game; make room for better players! In the next picture the same individuals have sprung to their feet, and show fight.

During Sig. Their outline is always the same: there are three horizontal lines at an equal distance, each line containing twelve signs—thirty-six in all. The signs vary in almost every table; there are circles, squares, vertical bars, leaves, letters, monograms, crosses, crescents and immodest symbols: the majority of these tables sixty-five contain words arranged so as to make a full sentence with the thirty-six letters.

These sentences speak of the fortune, and good, or bad, luck of the game, of the skill and pluck of the players, of the favour, or hostility, of bystanders and betting men. Sometimes they invite you to try the seduction of gambling, sometimes they warn of the risks incurred. In the spring of a life-size statuette of a boy playing at nuts was discovered in the cemetery of the Agro Verano, near St Lorenzo fuori le mura. The statuette, cut in Pentelic marble, represents the young gambler leaning forward, as if he had thrown, or was about to throw, the nut; and his countenance shows anxiety and uncertainty as to the success of his trial.

The game could be played in several ways. Another way was to design a triangle on the floor with chalk, subdividing it into several compartments by means of lines parallel to the base; the winnings were regulated according to the compartment in which the nut fell and remained.

Italian [10] boys are still very fond of this game, which they call Campana , because the figure drawn on the floor is in the shape of a bell: it is played with coppers. There was a third game at nuts, in which the players placed their stakes in a vase with a large opening. The one who succeeded first in throwing his missile inside the jar would gain its contents. Answer: In both there is great sin, and also some things of use unto men; but their sinfulness is greater than their use.

The original word, al Meiser , properly signifies a particular game performed with arrows, and much in use with the pagan Arabs. The classical word for the gambler, or dice player, appears aramaized in the same sources into something like kubiustis , as the following curious instances may show.

In another Talmudical passage, an early Biblical critic is discussing certain arithmetical difficulties in the Pentateuch. Thus, he finds the number of the Levites in Numbers to differ, when summed up from the single items, from that given in the total.

He must keep him, as he bought him, or send him away, for he bought him with all his vices. No wonder dice-playing was tantamount to a crime in those declining days. Nero played the points—for they also played it by points—at , sesterces. Caligula, after a long spell of ill-luck, in which he had lost all his money, rushed into the streets, had two innocent Roman knights seized, and ordered their goods to be confiscated.

Whereupon he returned to his game, remarking that this had been the luckiest throw he had had for a long time. Claudius had his carriages arranged for dicing convenience, and wrote a work on the subject. Nor was it all fair play with those ancients. But the word was also used in a mathematical sense. The use of dice in England is of great antiquity, dating from the advent of the Saxons and the Danes and Romans; indeed, all the northern nations were passionately addicted to gambling.

Tacitus de Moribus Germ. In early English times we get occasional glimpses of gambling with dice. This edict was established for the regulation of the Christian army under the command of Richard the First of England and Philip of France during the Crusade.

It prohibits any person in the army, beneath the degree of knight, from playing at any sort of game for money: knights and clergymen might play for money, but none of them were permitted to lose more than twenty shillings in one whole day and night, under a penalty of one hundred shillings, to be paid to the archbishops in the army.

The two monarchs had the privilege of playing for what they pleased, but their attendants were restricted to the sum of twenty shillings, and, if they exceeded, they were to be whipped naked through the army for three days.

The letter books of the Corporation of the City of London, during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, give us several examples of diceing. Elmer de Multone was attached, for that he was indicted in the Ward of Chepe for being a common night walker; and, in the day, is wont to entice strangers and persons unknown, to a tavern, and there deceive them by using false dice.

And, also, for that he was indicted in Tower Ward, for being a bruiser and night walker, against the peace; as, also, for being a common rorere. He appeared, and, being asked [14] how he would acquit himself thereof, he said that he was not guilty, and put himself upon the country as to the same.

And the jury came, by Adam Trugge and others, on the panel; and they said, upon their oath, that he is guilty of all the trespasses aforesaid. The next is from a Proclamation made for the safe keeping of the City.

After which the complainants, wondering at their continued losing, examined the board at which they had been playing and found it to be false and deceptive; seeing that in three quarters of the board all the black points were so depressed that all the white points in the same quarters were higher than the black points in the same; and, on the fourth quarter of the board, all the white points were so depressed that all the black points in that quarter were higher than the white. They inspected and examined also the dice with which they had first played at tables, and found them to be false and defective.

And, because they would play no longer, the said Nicholas and John Outlawe stripped John atte Hille of of a cloak, 16 shillings in value, which they still retained. Therefore it was awarded that they should have the punishment of the pillory, to stand thereon for one hour in the day, and that the said false chequer board should be burnt beneath them, the Sheriff causing the reason for their punishment to be proclaimed.

And, after that, they were to be taken back to the Prison of Newgate, there to remain until the Mayor and Aldermen should give orders for their release. In there was a famous murder, in which Mr Arden of Feversham was killed whilst playing a game of tables with one Mosbie, the paramour of his wife, who had made Mosbie a present of a pair of silver [16] dice to reconcile a disagreement that had subsisted between them.

Shakespeare mentions dice and dicing thirteen times in seven plays, and in Jonson, and the early dramatists, there are many allusions to this species of gambling. In the British Museum is a little MS. Charles Cotton, in his Compleat Gamester , gives us a vivid account of dicing, as it then was, at an ordinary, after dark. Some of these Rooks will be very importunate to borrow money of you without any intention to pay you; or to go with you seven to twelve, half a crown, or more, whereby, without a very great chance ten to one, or more , he is sure to win.

Tables overthrown, and all the House in such a Garboyl, that it is the perfect type of Hell. Happy is the man now that can make the frame of a Table or Chimney corner his Sanctuary; and, if any are so [18] fortunate as to get to the Stair head, they will rather hazard the breaking of their own necks, than have their souls pushed out of their bodies in the dark by they know not whom.

Low Fullams , 1. This bristle must be strong and short, by which means, the bristle bending, it will not lie on that side, but will be tript over; and this is the newest way of making a high, or low Fullam.

The old ways are by drilling them, and loading them with quicksilver; but that cheat may be easily discovered by their weight, or holding two corners between your forefinger and thumb; if, holding them so, gently between your fingers, they turn, you may conclude them false: or, you may try their falsehood otherwise, by breaking, or splitting them.

Others have made them by filing and rounding; but all these ways fall short of the Art of those who make them; some whereof are so admirably skilful in making a Bale of Dice to run what you would have them, that your Gamesters think they can never give enough for their purchase, if they prove right.

They are sold in many places about the Town; price current, by the help of a friend eight shillings; whereas an ordinary Bale is sold for sixpence: for my part, I shall tell you plainly, I would have those Bales of false Dice to be sold at the price of the ears of such destructive knaves that made them. Observe this—that the bottom and top of all Dice are Seven , so that if it be four above, it must be a 3 at bottom; so 5 and 2, 6 and 1.

Fourthly—by Knapping : that is, when you strike a Dye dead, that it shall not stir. This is best done within the Tables; where, note, there is no securing but of one Dye, although there are some, who boast of securing both.
