The online card games history is relatively short and rooted in regular card game forms, naturally. Many historians believe playing cards originated in China, given that this is where paper was first invented. Later, playing cards found their way into Europe via the Islamic world back in the 14th Century. The Muslim symbols on the cards (swords, cups) were subsequently replaced by royalty, namely kings, queens and jacks.
