Since the 17th century when roulette first came onto the scene it has grown in popularity. The first roulette wheel was invented by Blaise Pascal, a great French mathematician. Blaise Pascal designed a wheel that has 36 numbered pockets on it, and it was used in casinos from many years unchanged.
In 1842, Louis Blanc, another Frenchman, added an additional pocket to the roulette wheel with the zero on it. This modification increased the casino edge to 2.7%.
After roulette was introduced in America, another zero was added to the roulette wheel; again this increased the casino edge to 5.4%. This is basically the last major modification to the classic roulette wheel.
