The roulette was invented in the 17th century by the French mathematician Blaise Pascal. In 1842, a better version was pioneered in Hamburg, Germany by Frenchmen Francois and Louis Blanc because in France wagering was illegal during this period. The novelty consisted in the introduction of the single “0” roulette wheel.
It soon became very popular and replaced the earlier game that featured higher chances. It later became known as the European Roulette and this is the game responsible for bringing wealth, fortune and fame to the city of Monte-Carlo and the state of Monaco.
In America the roulette table reached the gamblers under its old form, the one with double “00”. The game gained its popularity in the old west of America during the Gold Rush. This version is today known as the American Roulette.
