Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Word
Origins 50. The word origin today is “casino. “
Let’s take a look at the note. The origin
of the word casino comes directly from
Italian. In Italian, the word means little
house or sometimes it can be used to
mean country house in Italian. Casa means
a house and when a word ends in the
letters INO or Ino usually refers to
the diminutive. Which means small. For
example , a lot of people might know
Bambino means a little baby diminutive.
So anytime you have the INO sort of
ending it could mean that it’s smaller
Something is smaller or less. It’s a
So it is a diminutive form meaning small,
so small house. Okay let’s continue. The
Italians often went to their country
house to hang out with friends and enjoy
music dancing and gamboling. Okay.
Eventually the name stuck for a gambling
house. The first European casino was in
Venice, Italy which helped in
establishing the name casino for
gambling houses. So I guess Italy was one
of the first …was the first one to really
have a real casino in it. And that’s the
it got to be known as though like the
little house. So that’s how the name came
about and that stuck ever since that.
Anyway, I hope you got it.
I hope it’s clear. Thank you for your time.
