Casino Gambling in history


This great Macao gaming house was of short duration. Mr Raikes
says of it:--'The club did not endure for twelve years
altogether; the pace was too quick to last; it died a natural
death in 1819, from the paralyzed state of its members. The
house was then taken by a set of blacklegs, who instituted a
common bank of gambling. To form an idea of the ruin produced by
this short-lived establishment among men whom I have so
intimately known, a cursory glance to the past suggests the
following melancholy list, which only forms a part of its
deplorable results: none of the dead reached the average age of
man.' Among the members were Beau Brummell and the madman Bligh.
