The beginnings of sports betting can be traced back to ancient times. The ancient Greeks are known to this day for their fondness for sporting activities, and it is not without reason that many of them are depicted in the form of very sporty statues. The first sports bets are said to have existed for the 23rd Olympiad in 676 BC. Back then, betting on gladiator fights was very popular, with the bet being placed on the supposedly best gladiator. Chariot racing and of course the disciplines of the Olympic Games were also very popular for betting.
In the 18th century in Great Britain, the possibilities of betting changed as a result. Horse racing was particularly popular at the time. Usually only the rich and aristocratic parts of the population bet locally. What was new was the option not only to bet on a certain horse, but also to predict certain outcomes. Similar to today, when you can not only determine who wins a football or tennis match, but also the score at the end of the game.
It took almost another century before sports betting finally reached Germany at the beginning of the 19th century. At the end of the 19th century, football bets also became popular and their popularity has changed little today.
