Origin of Roullete


Roulette is a casino game that comes in several formats. Each one will offer different rules and payouts. The differences will also depend on where the game originated from.

The most popular roulette variation is the European variant. It features a single zero pocket and lowers the house edge to a coveted 2.7%.


While the exact origin of Roullete is not known, it is generally believed that the game was invented in the 17th century. One popular theory is that it was inadvertently invented by French mathematician Blaise Pascal as part of his attempts to produce a wheel that would demonstrate perpetual motion. Other theories suggest that the game was devised by a group of Dominican monks at the end of the 17th century or that it was based on an older Italian game called Hoca and an English game called E-O (Even and Odd). Regardless, the fact is that roulette has a long history as a gambling game. It is also one of the oldest casino games in the world. The game originated in France and was later adopted by other European casinos and gambling houses.
