If someone were to ask you about casino games, surely in your answer sooner rather than later you would mention the game of roulette. Roulette is one of the most popular casino games in the world and millions of players everywhere enjoy playing this game both live and online, although many know it, not all know where it comes from. There are so many stories about the origin of the game of roulette that the first thing we can deduce is that the origin is not entirely clear, but we will try to get as close to it as possible.
Most likely, the origin of this game is in the Wheel of Fortune, a tool of ancient medieval philosophy. As in roulette, this wheel turned at the hands of the goddess of destiny and marked whether he would be happy or unhappy depending on whether it marked the rise or fall of a king. We also find similarities in the English EO games odd / even and in the Italian board game. It is believed that it was Blaine Pascal, the famous French researcher and physicist, who invented roulette by introducing the theory of probability, which had never been studied until then.
Gambling became popular in France in the 18th century, but shortly after it was banned, as it was in Germany, and this ban put Monte Carlo, the only place in Europe where casinos lived their golden age, to a great advantage. It was in the second part of the 20th century when casinos really began to expand and with the advent of the Internet came the rise of online roulette. The online casinos have revolutionized the way we play roulette. Many new variants have been created and you can also play online roulette from anywhere.
If we look at the roulette wheel we will see that it is made up of 37 slots that are numbered from 0 to 36 alternating the colors red and black, except for 0 which is green. We will also see that there is a tapestry. It will be on the mat where the players place their bets. They must choose by which number, color or series they want to place the bet and place it on the mat. When all the players have placed their bets, the wheel is turned and the bet that matches where the ball lands will win. There are different types of roulette, but they all work in a similar way. We only found one important difference in American roulette, which has one more box, 00. If it falls on 00, you will have lost everything.
