Well, there you go. When it comes to world class quality cards for poker tournaments and casino’s, Cartamundi is a preferred partner to the professionals. Probably because we know that top quality playing cards are very much part of the infamous ‘casino experience’. The touch of the cards, the smoothness, the impeccable performance… we know that all those aspects of the experience are crucial. And that’s why our factories worldwide like to focus on delivering the best manufacturing services to casino’s.
A historical experience
If you’ ve ever walked the floor of a casino, or spent the night shuffling cards around a table of highly focussed poker players, you were probably busy trying to read your opponents, win you some money and absorb all the gaming excitement around you. We bet you didn’t realize at that time you were actually enjoying an experience that has a long history? Oh yes, casinos go way back, even to the19th century. When the term casino came to include public buildings where ‘pleasurable’ activities took place. Such edifices were usually built on the grounds of a larger Italian villa or palazzo, and were used to host civic town functions, including dancing, gambling, music listening, and sports.
Waiting for that ‘rush’
These days, casinos have evolved of course.They are all about having fun, and forgetting about time. Mostly it is about going for the one lucky streak or waiting for that ‘rush’ at the poker table – that sublime moment that emerges mysteriously and that can end unpredictably but that can also be one sweet ride when you are on it. For some professionals out there, playing a poker game like Texas Hold Em is even like science or even math. They won’t rest until they discover the secret to a succesful pokergame.
To be honest, when people at Cartamundi talk about the subject of casinos, it is simply because we love manufacturing superior cards. It is our firm ambition to always deliver the most reliable, smooth and flawless casino cards. How we do that? We leave nothing to chance. We like to leave chance to the casino players.
