Betting as a term is innate with humans and the development of human society
into the centuries. Inside these web pages we will examine betting and
its development throughout history, through philosophy and art and anything
else concerning humans and betting. It is not accidental that the term
‘betting’ or ‘to place a bet’ is accompanied with a small or bigger challenge,
nor is it accidental that in the daily language of people from all over
the world, from the simplest conversation to the statements of public personas
and politicians, the word ‘bet’ has now replaced the word ‘challenge’.
Thus many times we can hear politicians instead of saying that applying
their new program is a big challenge, they will say that
it is a bet with themselves or we can very often catch artists saying while
presenting their new album saying that it was a bet in relation to their
artistic objectives and abilities.
A very important role as well in the creation of this type of game has the
enormous success that the organization of the official betting games from
the Greek OPAP has and how much it has influenced the everyday routine
of Greek people, since wherever you stand it is almost certain that you
will hear something relevant to an athletic bet.
