Sportbetting History

People have been gambling for thousands of years, and can be traced back to religious rituals in prehistoric societies. These rituals purpose where foretelling the future, and consisted of casting small objects like pebbles and sticks to the ground and interpreting their patterns.

The next step in evolution saw the participants sacrificing certain commodities to encourage the Fate/ Gods to deliver help with the outcome of these rituals. They gambled their stakes on the outcome that depended on chance, and soon this became an activity linked with everyday life, using these games as a way of decision making. The ultimate step in evolution occurred when people decided to gamble with their stakes for material gain. Gambling since then has played a part in the history of Nations, in 1000 AD it was said that the King of Norway and the King of Sweden were in dispute over an isolated area of land, and because this could not be resolved they agreed to roll a pair of dice. Norway received the territory by gaining a higher outcome and it is said that the two kings departed on amicable terms. 

Since then society have been betting the outcome of horse races, brawls and cockfights in the hope of a profit and as a form of leisure and entertainment. It seems that if there was a sport to be played there was someone somewhere willing to bet on the outcome.
