The Evolution of Roulette
Roulette, a named coined after the French word “small wheel” is a classic game that dates back to the 18th century. However, the earliest form of Roulette was introduced a century earlier by Blaise Pascal. The game was also referenced in a French novel called La Roulette, where the Roulette wheel was described in Palais Royal in 1796. In the late 1700s, Roulette was introduced to the repertoire of casino games in New Orleans, which was the gaming capitol in the United States. By the 19th century, Roulette was considered one of the most popular and famous games across the U.S. and Europe.
