You may have seen the Roulette wheel dominating casino advertisements throughout the years, as it’s seen as the poster symbol for all things casino. But did you know, this iconic game item was invented by accident?

In the 17th century, a scientist, inventor, and so many other titles under his belt – Blaise Pascal – was conducting research and an experiment to create a perpetual motion machine. In failing to create this, Pascal instead stumbled upon creating the blueprints for what would later become the Roulette wheel.

Fast forward to 1843, where European casinos were already spinning one form of the Roulette wheel, which featured both single and double zero pockets on the wheel. It was in this year, that twin brothers Francois and Louis Blanc, changed the course of gaming history forever.

Trying to compete with their casino rivals, the Blanc brothers hatched a plan to remove the double zero pocket from the wheel and table, which in doing so, lowered the house edge, allowing a better opportunity than the double zero version, to potentially win a game.

The single zero wheel was a big hit with casino goers and was soon known as the European version. With the success of the game taking off, it soon took to the seas and travelled to the States. Surprisingly, players in the States preferred the higher house edge and adopted the double zero back onto the wheel. This was soon referred to as the American version.

Now, with the advancements in technology, both the European and the American Roulette versions are available at a click of a button, allowing players the opportunity to try both variations out, to see which variant of the classic they prefer.--

Will you be spinning both wheels on your next visit to the online casino? Will you prefer one wheel over the other?
