House of Fortune - Rules of Play says:

Glückshaus originated in Germany in the late 15th century but quickly, in various forms, spread across Europe, becoming known as House of Fortune or Lucky Pig in Britain. It is one of the first stake board games, which eventually resulted in the foundation of casino games in the 19th century. As such this is nothing more or less than a gambling game where coins (tokens, sweets and so on) are won or lost on the roll of two dice. Three or more can play and anyone can drop in or out of a game at any time. Excellent after dinner game!
