    The History of Roulette

    It is a little known fact that in addition to being one of the world's greatest mathematicians, Blaise Pascal was also the inventor of the modern day game of roulette. Even less known is that the invention was created by accident. The year was 1655 and Pascal’s pursuits were set on creating a perpetual motion machine. As luck would have it, his invention would be repurposed nearly 200 years later into one of the most enjoyed casino games of all time.

    While it was obvious that the wheel would make an ideal gambling game, no one knew how to make it profitable. So the game remained untouched until 1842, when brothers Francois and Luois Blanc realized that if they added a zero to the wheel without changing the payout scheme, they could gain a substantial house edge. With this clever idea the game of roulette was launched.

     

    Modern Roulette

    Once roulette was introduced in the United States, the double zero version was created, offering casinos an even greater house advantage. Though roulette is often glamorized, these days you don't need to don a tuxedo or jet off to Monte Carlo in order to play. Thanks to the rise of online gaming, roulette is easily accessible to anyone from the comfort of their own home. Better yet, since online casinos offer a huge range of exciting types of roulette tables 24/7, you're just a few minutes away from potentially spinning your way to a huge fortune.
