The most common and perhaps inexpensive of the gambling equipments is the dice. Dice games are so ancient that their inventor is unknown by the historians. However, that the dice games prevailed in almost all the early civilizations is an established fact. the initial dice were animal bones, fruit stones, small pebbles or ivory. Today, dice has acquired much more precision with its cubical shape. While the standard dice is crude and used in households games, casino dice is more accurate and perfect. The casino dice, also called the 'perfect dice' is made in a manner that each side weighs equal after the holes have been punctured on each side. This enables equal probability of either side being the outcome. Serious gamblers use casino die in their games. Casinos have dice tolls available with them like the dice punches and dice vices.

Cards have been played by many civilizations. The first pack of cards was made of thick paper with hand painted figures on them. The modern cards got their suits and faces in France. The French deck consisted of 78 cards. The deck comprised of both gaming and tarot cards. The tarot cards were then separated to reduce the number of cards in the deck. The cards were adopted by the Europeans and traveled to America where the joker was added to them. Cards are inexpensive to procure. Many people are fond of collecting various casino cards. These cards have the casino's logo imprinted on them. The casino cards can either be bridge size or poker wide.
