The term "Roulette" is French and in essence it means "small wheel". While it may seem that simply because "Roulette" is a French word that the game itself comes from France, but this isn’t essentially accurate. There are a number of differing theories which range from the game being developed in China, along with ancient Rome. Many who are convinced the game came from China, think that Monks that were exchanging with the Chinese brought the game back to Europe. The Roman idea is centered on accounts that Romans would flip their chariots and spin them as a kind of amusement.

A slightly much more popular theory is that the French researcher Blaise Pascal, credited with the probability theory, invented the roulette wheel. Evidently, it was the by-product of one of his quite a few studies.

Eventually, in 1842, the French brothers Louis and Francois Blanc created the roulette game we know nowadays. They developed the "0" variation used by most countries in the world. A story about Francois Blanc, is that he seemingly sold his soul to the devil in order to obtain the key of roulette. Conspiracy-advocates verify this tale by the fact that all the numbers on a roulette wheel have a sum of "666".

Despite the fact that the Blanc brothers’ game was a unquestionable success, betting was still illegal in France so it was launched in Hamburg instead. Gambling was ultimately prohibited in Germany as well, nevertheless, but then The Prince of Monaco invited Louis to run his Monte Carlo gambling house and reacquaint the people with the casino game of roulette.

When brought over to America, the single Zero variation of roulette was forgotten in favour of the "00" variation of roulette. These days, to be able to differentiate between these two styles, the Double Zero model is called the American Wheel whilst the "0" edition the European Wheel. The "00" version has 38 numbers whilst the "0" edition only has Thirty Seven but, despite their discrepancies, both are very popular around the world…
