Where did Poker Come From?
Nobody is really sure where the game of Poker originated. There are several different theories about both the game and the name ‘Poker’. Some people think the earliest version was a Persian game called As Nas, others claim it started in Renaissance Europe and that the name was French or German in origin. What’s pretty certain is that people were playing a recognisable form of Poker in the Southern States of America 200 years ago. The game spread up the Mississippi River on the steamboats and on to the Wild West where it became a part of frontier life. Poker was massively popular with soldiers in the American Civil War, who introduced Stud Poker. The game has constantly changed and developed over the last two centuries and Prime ScratchCards didn’t hesitate to develop new and exciting versions of this amazing card game. We’ve used the latest Flash technology to bring Poker right into the 21st Century!
