Roulette

The first form of roulette was devised in 17th century France, by mathematician Blaise Pascal. He was inspired by his fascination with perpetual motion. In 1842, Frenchmen François and Louis Blanc added the "0" to the roulette wheel in order to increase house odds. In the early 1800s, roulette was brought into the U.S., where to further increase house odds, a second zero, "00", was introduced. (In some forms of early American roulette the double-zero was replaced by an American Eagle.) In the 1800s, roulette spread all over both Europe and the U.S., becoming one of the most famous and most popular casino games. Some call roulette the "King of Casino Games", probably because it was associated with the glamour of the casinos in Monte Carlo. (François Blanc actually established the first casinos there).
