:: HISTORY OF ROULETTE
There are two leading theories about the invention of the roulette.
The first theory is that the roulette was invented by the 17th century French mathematician, Blaise Pascal. (As the word "roulette" means "small wheel" in French).
The second theory is that the Chinese invented the roulette and it got to France with the assistance of some Chinese traders.
But, all theories aside, the next known fact is that in the late years of the 18th century a game that we could recognize as modern Roulette was introduced in Parisian casinos.
In the mid 19th century, Francois and Louis Blanc had invented the 'one zero' machine, in France. But, because gambling was banned in France at that time, they introduced it to the world in Hamburg, Germany. Later on, when gambling was banned in Germany, Francois Blanc and his son, Camille, had brought the roulette game back to their homeland, France. There, Charles III, Prince of Monaco, saw the new and exciting game and asked them to run a casino in Monaco, what would have become the world-known " Monte Carlo". So, until 1933, you could find Roulettes only in Monte Carlo.
Due to technology development a new type of roulette has been launched, electronic roulette which presents unique bond of electronic and mechanic where computer automatically controls the game.
