One of the easiest game in Casino is none other than Roulette. Players become so addicted to this game even in the internet gambling, online roulette is one of the crowds favorite. I think the main reason is players can easily adopt the rules of the game.

Chances are the key to win this game. That’s why it was once labeled as “Roulette: A Game of Chance”. Simply because of how the game starts and end. The wheel spins and also the ball spins in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. Chances is the key factor of this game. But first, let me give you some short history about how roulette starts.

Roulette was derived from a french word which means “small wheel”. A popular mathematician mistakenly invented this game. Blaise Pascal was the reason of all this. In 1655, he was attempting to build a machine that would never lose its momentum but unfortunately roulette was born.

For the sake of the readers, Blaise Pascal also created the formula “Pascals Triangle” which is still taught until now in High Schools.

In the late 18th century, Roulette became very popular when Prince Charles of Monaco introduced gambling to Monaco as a way of alleviating the financial problems of the region. Then in 1842 two Frenchmen, Francois and Louis Blanc add a 0 to the numbers of the roulette wheel. There are now 37 numbers on the roulette, ranging from 0 to 36. Adding the 0 increases the house odds of winning.

But do you know that this game has a tag line of “The Devil’s Game” ? Because if you add up all the 36 numbers of it the sum is 666 which is the most infamous number in the bible.

There are two different variations or types of roulette. One is American Roulette Wheel and the other is European Roulette Wheel.

American Roulette includes 38 numbers considering 0, 00 and 1 to 36. These two zeros (0, 00) gives the house a 5.26% advantage. In other words, for every $100 a gambler bets, the house will make $5.26 in profit.

European Roulette includes 37 numbers considering 0 and 1 to 36. Having one zero (0) gives the house a 2.70% advantage. In other words, for every $10 a gambler bets, the house will make $2.7 in profit.

The diversion of roulette was made because the single “0” modification was rejected in America and the two zeros “00” where returned to the Roulette wheel.

Roulette also has different betting system to choose from. The choice depends on how much you understand the system, or how much math will it cost, or simply because this is what you want.

The system is very comprehensive and can easily be understand. When you lose in betting one unit, you have to keep your bet on that unit. When you win, increase the size of your bet to one. The goal of the system is to make one unit profit per cycle and when the goal has been achieved, the game stops.


This system was considered the most popular of all. The main purpose of this is that the player has to double his bet every time he loses to win his money back and win from there. This system is not for those player who holds their money tightly. Those who are afraid of losing money must use other type of the systems.

There are lots of betting system at this roulette game. Whatever system and types of roulette your playing at, always remember that CHANCES is still the king of this game.
