Roulette

Roulette is a casino game where the aim is to place predictive wagers on the spin of the Roulette wheel. It is important to adjust your risk strategy to an appropriate level when playing Roulette. There is no point betting your whole bankroll on a single number on your first go, you will most certainly go bust and be leaving the casino before you have even started. You should use an appropriate amount of your casino bankroll for a single spin, the Roulette wheel isn't going anywhere you have all night so be patient and take it slow.

Nearly everyone has heard of the casino game Roulette it is immensely popular in online and live casinos. Roulette offers a wide range of bets and strategy that can be utilized in an attempt to defeat the house and win loads of cash in the process. Roulette rules can be as easy as betting on red or black or odd/even but the more seasoned Roulette players may prefer to adopt a more advanced Roulette betting strategy by betting on a variety of numbers or even ranges of numbers. This will increase your chances of winning but obviously the wider your bets are spread the less odds you will receive from the casino for a win. If you are interested in playing Roulette I would advise starting with a basic strategy such as betting on red or black. Once you have familiarised yourself with the Roulette casino game rules and table layout I would suggest widening your Roulette betting strategy and consider betting on ranges of numbers instead of just red or black which could get monotonous.

Roulette History

Roulette Is a French word that translates to 'little wheel'. The story of this little wheel goes back hundreds of years and involves a legendary mathematician/inventor, Royalty and even a dash of conspiracy with alleged pacts with the devil being made!

Incredibly it was French inventor/mathematician Blaise Pascals search for a perpetual motion machine in the 17th century that first brought about the wheel and with a sprinkle of inspiration from English and Italian wheel games Roulette was invented.

Roulette was clearly popular with the royals and elite back in the day as there is documentation of it being played in the Palais Royal in Paris as far back as 1796! The table was described as having two betting spaces creating the house edge, zero and double zero.

In 1843 two French pioneers in the gambling industry Fransoir Blanc and Louis Blanc introduced a form of Roulette with only one Zero hence reducing the House edge and increasing the punters chance of winning. This proved to be very popular and roulette spread through Europe like wildfire! When Gambling was outlawed throughout Europe the Blanc family where forced to Monte Carlo where they built a casino for the Rich and elite casino game fans of Europe. Here, the single zero roulette game became enormously popular and was crowned, 'The king of casino games'.

There is a lot of mystery surrounding Mr Fransoir Blanc, he was accused of having made a pact with the devil in exchange for the secrets of roulette! Is it a mere coincidence that when you add up the numbers on the wheel (1-36) they amount to 666(mark of the beast)?

Whilst the single zero form of Roulette had become undoubtedly the number one form of the game in Europe. The double Zero format was flourishing in gambling dens all over America. There was wide spread cheating on both sides of the fence which caused the game to be simplified and the Roulette table raised and put in better view so sneaky devices could not be attached.

This caused the American version to take a different route from the Original French Roulette game. The outcome was a more novice friendly game with straightforward betting and faster action. This is now the preferred layout which you will find on most casino Roulette tables throughout the world. Although all casinos apart from ones in South America and the USA still adapts the single Zero format.
