By the time humans learned to write and record their doings, wagering was a common element of life.
At one point, a group of humans discovered the practice of facilitating wagers betwixt parties, possibly taking a small piece of a recently killed game animal as a fee for bringing together people from two different hunting parties interested in a contest to see which party could bring down a Wooly Mammoth or Giant Kangaroo with the least loss of life to the hunting party members, and the occupation of bookmaker was created.
At the height of the Roman civilisation, any and all comers could speculate on the outcome of the precursor of today’s trots, the chariot race, with the most famous bookmaker on the rails of the Roman Coliseum, William “Billus Maximus” Aqua-domus, one of the earliest members of the Waterhouse clan.
Of course, it was not until around 1515 that the term bookmaker started being used, almost 100 years after Gutenberg created movable type and democratized access to books for the masses of people who previously could not afford a monastery full of manuscript copying monks for books of any type, let alone sports or racing books.
Another early example of developing technology to facilitate wagering took place betwixt 1729 and 1792, during the lifetime of John Montagu, aka the 4th Earl of Sandwich, whose innovation of slices of meat betwixt slices of bread made it unnecessary to delay gambling in order to dine. Some historians assert that it was not to gamble, but to do more government work that spurred the Earl to create the sandwich, but that explanation does not suit our purposes, lacks any trace of human interest, and is frankly, boring, so we choose to favour the first and more interesting interpretation of history.
Plenty of developments have transpired in the 500 years since bookies began to be called bookmakers. The march of civilisation and technology picked up pace when the telephone made it possible to wager without being physically present at the tracks or the bookie shops. That same telephone evolved to the device nearly all of us carry around everywhere we go, the smartphone.
With a mobile wagering application installed, these smartphones make it simple and fast to have a punt at races and sporting events all over the world. One bookmaker’s mobile app we would like to take a look at is that of the Ladbrokes agency. Join Ladbrokes Here - 300% Join Bet.
