History of Roulette

The game of roulette originated in France in the late 18th century. The earliest form of the game was known as "Roly-Poly" and was played using a wheel that had two zeros and a house edge of over 7%. In 1843, French brothers Francois and Louis Blanc added an additional zero to the wheel, creating the modern version of the game and greatly reducing the house edge.

The American version of the game was introduced in the early 19th century, adding an additional double-zero slot to the wheel. The game grew in popularity during the 19th century, spreading throughout Europe and eventually to the United States. Today, roulette is a popular casino game with players around the world.
