The History of Roulette

Roulette is a game of chance that is primarily based on luck. It is important to understand the rules and bet types before playing this game.

Players place bets by laying chips on a betting mat until the croupier (dealer) says no more bets. Bets are placed on either individual numbers or groups of numbers.


Although it’s impossible to pinpoint exactly when roulette began, most people agree that it was invented in the late eighteenth century. Some believe that it was created by the French mathematician Blaise Pascal as part of his attempt to create a perpetual motion machine. Others claim that it was derived from older games like portique, hoca and bassett. Other historians suggest that it was inspired by the Italian board game Biribi.

It’s also possible that it was developed by soldiers during the French Revolution. They played a variety of gambling games that were similar to modern roulette, including a game where soldiers spun shields with symbols on them and bet on which would land in front of an arrow. All of these games had some sort of wheel and a betting area.
