Jar'ga was a male Hutt casino owner. Jar'ga the Hutt pioneered the development of Holo-Sabacc, a variation of the card game sabacc that was played entirely through hologram without physical cards.[1]

Jar'ga first commissioned Holo-Sabacc in a casino on[1] the moon[2] Nar Shaddaa in order to combat longtime rampant cheating in both amateur and professional sabacc games, as he did not tolerate such profit-gouging like his fellow casino owners. Jar'ga's invention quickly became popular across the galaxy, and[1] by 3630 BBY,[3] every casino in known space had installed at least one Holo-Sabacc table. Slicers, however, quickly adapted, stacking holo-decks and altering card algorithms. The sliced Holo-Sabacc systems were obtainable on every major world's black market. Jar'ga himself hid a sliced Holo-Sabacc table in his casino stacked in the dealer's favor.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Jar'ga was mentioned in the Codex entry for Holo-Sabacc in the 2015 expansion Knights of the Fallen Empire to the 2011 massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars: The Old Republic, released by BioWare.[1]

  3. According to SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) the events of the Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire from Chapter IX onwards take place in 3630 BBY. Therefore, Game Update 4.3: Visions in the Dark, which saw the release of the expansion's Chapter XII, can also be placed in 3630 BBY. As the Codex entry Holo-Sabacc, which mentions Jar'ga, was added with Game Update 4.3, its associated events can be placed by that same year as well.
