The meaning of the word casino has an Italian origin. The root "casa' (def. "house") originally meant "summerhouse" or "social club". During the 19th Century, the term casino came to include other public buildings - where pleasurable activities took place. The first well-known casino in the world was the Casino di Venezia, which was founded in Italy in 1638.
