TYCHE: A historic album to celebrate Intralot’s 20th birthday

Friday, December 21st, 2012

Tyche, Fortune, has always been part of our lives, a whimsical companion, whose favour and generosity we all desire. The ancient Greeks had actually conceptualized chance, coincidence and unpredictability. They perceived everything they were unable to explain as the work of a goddess, the goddess of Chance, Tyche in Greek. Tyche was regarded as a powerful, important forcer, controlling the fate of people, and as a ruler of the universe. Her divine will was revealed to people in various mysterious ways

On the occasion of its 20 years anniversary Intralot has just published a historic album in collaboration with the Foundation of the Hellenic World. The book is entitled “TYCHE: Lotteries and Games of Chance through Time” and addresses the power of Chance in the human spirit. “TYCHE” invites readers to an exciting journey through times through an incursion into the role of Chance and games of Chance in people’s private and public lives, illustrated with a telling photographic collection of prominent samples of art, monuments and scenes from daily life. Either based on luck, strategy or both, games of chance have always offered to mankind the joy of participation along with the excitement of anticipation and hope for the future. Games may have changed over the centuries but gaming is inherent to mankind and will always be part of human culture.
