History of Roulette

Roulette is one of the most popular casino games around today. The game has been around for ages and used to played by the French upper-class. The game goes back to the 15th century and is probably based on the perpetual motion machine invented by French Mathematician Blaise Pascal. The invention of the roulette wheel can be put down to one of Blaise Pascal’s numerous attempts before actually creating the perpetual motion machine.

In 1842 the design of the original roulette wheel changed and two French brothers, Francois and Louis Blanc, decided to add a 0 to the wheel which is how Roulette is played today. Gambling was against the law in France but still Roulette became largely popular and the Blanc brothers themselves established the first casino in Monte Carlo. Monaco itself became a gambling hotspot and still is one to this day.
