Roulette Through Times
Do you know a man named Blaise Pascal? Yes, he is that famous French mathematician and physicist. But aside from that, did you know that he was the one who invented roulette?
In the 1600's, Blaisce Pascal developed the first form of the game. Two centuries later, two other men altered the game invented by Pascal. They gave the roulette wheel an additional slot, which is the zero. Those men were Louis and Francois Blanc. They did that to increase the edge of the house over the roulette players. Years after, another slot was added, which is the double zero. Obviously, the house now has even more odds than it had at the time Pascal made the game.
Roulette entered Europe and America during the 19th century. The popularity of the game was inevitable because of the excitement attached to it. Since that time, roulette has become one of the most popular, if not the most popular, gambling games of all time. In fact, when people think of casinos or gambling, they picture the roulette wheel on their mind. The wheel has become an indelible icon of the world of casinos.
