There is still speculation as to where the roulette casino game stems from. Some state that it’s derived from China and was introduced by merchants and Dominican monks from the Far East to the Americas. Others assert that the roulette game originates from France, the word being a French term for "small wheel," and was created by a rowdy French math wizzard, Blaise Pascal in the seventeenth century.

Monaco still remains a strong convert to the roulette casino game becausein the eighteenth century Prince Charles thought that it would be an easy way to maintain the financial state of the modest country making money. When the game came to the Americas in the mid 19th Century the innovation of the single "O" was presented by Frenchmen, Louis and Francois Blanc. Even so the American game now plays the double "Zero" casino game although the European game still makes up the single "zero" game. The double Zero game allows the house to generate a larger profit. The roulette casino game proved to have some thing of a milestone inside the California Gold Rush certainly enticed to the big amounts of cash to be made.

You will find two distinctive ways of betting roulette, you can find 2 diverse wheels that are played and these are the American wheel and the European wheel. The difference is minimal in that the American wheel has thirty eight numbers such as zero, double zero and one to thirty-six. The European wheel is made up of thirty seven numbers which includes zero and also the numbers 1 to 36. Other distinctions between the two varying types of roulette are that in American gambling dens, the croupiers will use their hands to pull in the wagers whilst the European croupiers use a long stick called the Rake to accumulate the chips. Also in the US the roulette players are assigned various color chips and in Europe they are given the same colour chips. Roulette proves to be a very well-known game specifically in Europe.
