Gambling was eventually forbidden in Germany too, on the other hand, but then The Prince of Monaco invited Louis to operate his Monte Carlo casino and reacquaint the people with the casino game of roulette.

Nowadays, so as to differentiate between these two styles, the "00" model is called the American Wheel whilst the Single Zero version the European Wheel. The "00" variation has 38 numbers whilst the Single Zero model only has Thirty Seven but, despite their dissimilarities, both are very common around the world…
