FRONTIER GAMBLERS


Welcome to Frontier Gamblers, the site dedicated to those men and a few women that made their living by the turn of a card.

   On this site you will find information about the games they
  played, the equipment used in those games and the gamblers
  that had the biggest impact on the Old West. Men such as
  Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and Luke Short and women like
  Lottie Deno and Big Nose Kate.
These were the days before
  people had even heard of Texas Holdem
, when games such as
  Faro and 3 Card Monte were played in musty old saloons, as
  opposed to 
casinos By the 1890's Keno, the forerunner to
  Bingo was all the rage
Today you can apply your skills and
  knowledge in
online Bingo, an on-line game that is as popular
  today as Keno was back in it's day.


  Think of this as a college course where you learn what the life of a
  gambler was like, what towns they played in and how their lives ended.

  After reading this, if a test was given at the end, you would have chosen
 
Aced Poker to play online poker without a doubt.

 
All of you gamblers out there may get a whole new perspective about gambling, as you will find out in the history page,
gambling was not always as controversial as it is nowadays, but rather a
respectable trade. In fact, the
Wild West Texas Holdem Connection has been particularly overblown. Modern day Americans have plenty of legitimate ways to play holdem for real money,  a far cry from going to saloons and being threatened under the table by unscrupulous gamblers. Those of you who associate gambling with an online casino or a big flashy Vegas hotel may appreciate the days when men and women made
gambling their profession and were well known and even admired for it.


Reading through the pages of this website, you will discover many other new and interesting facts, so take off your hat,
swing the saloon doors open and take a step back into the life of a gambler on the old frontier.
