From MobyGames:

   Casino Games published by IBM in 1982 is historically the oldest commercial PC video game with a casino theme. Although it uses only primitive ASCII graphics and is completely written in BASIC, it was a very successful and perfectly represents the time in which it was created.
   The game was designed for 1, 2, 3 or 4 players and after entering the casino you can choose one of 3 available games of chance: blackjack, slot machine or poker. Each of them can be started separately via the corresponding BAS file. You always start the game with a total amount of 500 USD and it is up to you how you lose them. The minimum stakes for each game are $ 10 blackjack, $ 1 slots and $ 10 poker. The game was controlled completely by keyboard and relatively well simulated all random processes accompanying individual games.
   Of course, in 1982, the Internet did not exist as it does today. So you didn't play for real money, but only for virtual dollars. Nowadays, if you want to play in a casino, you can visit site like Casino Captain India and choose from a huge selection of online casinos. The advantage of these modern casinos is the wide range of games you can participate in. In addition to blackjack, slot machines and poker, you will find a number of other games. For example, we can mention roulette, various dice games, wheels of fortune, card or board games and many others. The downside is that the excitement of a real money game is usually redeemed by a lot of lost dollars.
   The 1982 Casino Games don't offer nearly as great graphics as modern online casinos. But it can take you back 40 years in time and allow you to enjoy the nostalgia of gambling on old computers from the 1980s. So if you love PC speaker sounds, ASCII graphics and gambling, then Casino Games from 1982 is the game you are looking for. Good luck.

Platform:

This ver­sion of Casino Games was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
