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.
