However, have you ever thought, how roulette started and evolved into the great game of our modern times?
In Europe, roulette history start in France, around 1650. Mr. Blaise Pascal who is a famed mathematician, has made numerous contributions to the mathematics, and probably he invented the roulette wheel.
In 1842 two Frenchmen, Francois and Louis Blanc added a "0" to the numbers of the roulette wheel. We dislike this scenario, as 0 and 00 (added later on) increase casino edge against players. The best situation for players is when there is not any zero, amongst numbers on the roulette wheel.
There are many famous roulette players that played well, winning a lot of money. One famous gambler Mr. Charles Wells, broke the bank at Monte Carlo famous casino in 1891.
He won over two million French Francs, in only two visits in this casino. At one point, he had won 23 out of 30 spins. Amazing!
