Step into the R’dotto Royale and rub shoulders with the nobility, all taking the chance on the turn of a card. It was very high stakes. But, as with all great risks, come even greater rewards…
The R’dotto, Venice’s 18th century gambling house was home to Italy – and Europe’s – elite. There, they could be found, risking it all in a variety of games. It was high stakes, one hell of a gamble, but there were huge rewards for those brazen enough to risk it all. Players would often reassure themselves with the saying “Audentis Fortuna iuvat” … “Fortune favours the bold”.
Of all the options, their favourite choice was Rosso, a game involving two decks of cards. The aim was to create the ultimate Five Card Trick: four red Aces plus a Joker. Almost impossible to form, but, for those bold enough to take the chance, the riches available were incredible.
